Worried about Cholesterol? Learn how to manage it naturally.

Managing Cholesterol Naturally

At some point we’ve all wondered if we live and eat healthy enough and if we should take better care of our bodies. Science has developed to a point where sometimes is hard to keep track of our health, and harder to understand the biological from the subjective well-being. Today, we are going to discuss a super important biological marker, the cholesterol. To understand and manage cholesterol has been a challenge for all of us since we’re living in time of industrialised and processed products. Keeping track of cholesterol levels is to take care of our heart health and the risks of cardiovascular disease. It’s important to realise that cholesterol is a huge factor when it comes to the increase of heart disease and stroke for example. We are here to tell you that by making intelligent lifestyle decisions and incorporating healthy dietary solutions you can make a difference in your wellbeing.


Understanding Cholesterol:

Although very mentioned, Cholesterol,is highly misunderstood. Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in our blood, that dictates various functions of the body, including cell membrane structure and hormone production which may sound super scientific but it is still important that we don’t back away from understanding it. When cholesterol levels get to a high level and here comes more scientific terms, the so called low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, also known as the “bad cholesterol,” can lead to the accumulation of fatty deposits in our arteries, and possibly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Not only that but the more our bodies our exposed high cholesterol more chances for bad effects on liver health, leading to conditions like fatty liver disease. On the other hand, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, which we call “good cholesterol,” can help remove excess cholesterol from the blood, reducing the risk of heart disease.


Lifestyle Changes for Heart Health:

As I said at the beginning of this post, committing to lifestyle changes can provide real benefits regarding managing cholesterol levels and having better heart health. Regular physical exercise, weight control and taking on diets focused on hearth health will help you. Diets rich in soluble fiber, whole grains and fatty fish are impactful for cholesterol levels. We should be aware of reducing consumption of – science terms alert! – processed foods in increasing monounsaturated fats like olive oil will be a great action to support hearth health. Other important friend in this process is the shiitake mushroom which has been proved to help with cholesterol levels. At Nummies we make mushroom based gummies that are a super ally for your daily routine.

Diet and Cholesterol Management:

We covered the importance of a good diet in managing cholesterol levels, but what else can you eat to help us? Well, science says that dairy products like low fat yogurt and cheese can be allies in this process. Making those part of your diet will provide calcium and vitamin d. And we can never stress this too much; consuming fatty fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon and mackerel, can help lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Plant-based sources of protein like soy milk and soy protein which are also excellent alternatives to animal products can help. And again, Mushrooms, always mushroom! especially varieties like Chaga and shiitake, have been studied for their cholesterol-lowering effects so they should be always considered! With Nummies gummies mushroom based, you can enjoy the benefits of mushrooms in a convenient and delicious 😋

Recent research has pointed out the potential cholesterol-lowering effects of mushrooms, specially shiitake. The Studies suggest that some elements found in mushrooms may help reduce cholesterol levels . At Nummies, we understand the importance of the natural benefits of mushrooms for cholesterol and overall wellbeing.

Research and Evidence:

In case you’re interested The evidence and research comes from several institutions like the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute . They are made with Systematic reviews and clinical trials showing us the importance of diet and creating awareness about cholesterol. One interesting thing reasearch tells us is the relation between sleep and cholesterol, that is to say that sleeping well is still one of the best things we can do for our health. It’s usually said that 7 to 8 hours is ideal. We all know that his is not always possible but we should do it as much as we can.


Conclusion:

In a few words, although we all have some many things to worry about, taking care of our bodies and in this case, specifically cholesterol levels is essential for wellbeing.
