We need cholesterol to make hormones

High cholesterol may lead to coronary disease like heart attack and stroke. When too much builds up in the arteries you get hardening of the artery walls and a build-up of plaque which blocks the arteries affecting blood flow to the heart. The thing is, we need a certain amount of cholesterol to make sex hormones, synthesis vitamin D, and it’s important for brain health too. It’s when there’s too much that there can be a problem. Hormone changes during the peri menopause can contribute to an increase in cholesterol levels. Your body makes its own cholesterol and you get it from foods too.

Zerochol is more cost effective than other food products

Foods to help lower cholesterol

Regarding diet aim to have a balanced diet, with reduced amounts of cheese, dairy, red meat, hydrogenated fats, saturated fats, and alcohol.
