For many, a healthy diet only means to stop eating saturated fats, salts, sugars or flours. But this action alone will not provide all the nutrients your body needs to fight against diseases such as cholesterol.
So, here are some tips for you to have a better diet.
Cholesterol, a silent attack
“I got scolded by the doctor, my cholesterol is high.” Many times we have heard this comment from family or friends after a visit to the doctor; causing us to reflect for a moment about what we ate the day before. We even question and worry restlessly about many things of our daily lives and the worst possible scenarios.
This is the case because most people know that is bad news to find LDL cholesterol, or bad cholesterol, in the blood. If it exceeds normal levels, it could cause irreversible damage, clogging veins, arteries and directly attacking the blood flow and eventually it could turn into cardiovascular diseases.
A necessary change
If what we have just described has happened to you and you feel that you have neglected your health and nutrition, it is important to make a change and make better choices as how you feed your body. However, this action is not always enough to fight against this silent enemy. Therefore, the first step is to have a medical check-up done to see if your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are good … remember that cholesterol does not hurt.
In fruits and vegetables there are natural compounds to be found such as phytosterols that help inhibit the absorption of cholesterol and provide the body only the amount needed to maintain adequate levels of cholesterol.
Currently, thanks to the research and development of the food industry, there are effective, efficient and natural solutions to face this type of disease.
One of the newest solutions is Cardiosmile, a Chilean product that gives your body 2 grams of phytosterols. This is the exact dose to help reduce harmful cholesterol. The best thing is that you can buy it without a medical prescription.
Cardiosmile is a natural product free of calories, gluten, fat, sugar, sodium and lactose. It is very easy to take: you only have to add it to the food or drink of your choice. Cardiosmile does not alter the taste or smell of your meals. Amazing, isn’t it?
You can contribute with that grain of sand to improve your health. You and your loved ones will always appreciate it.
