So often, we take a prescription, entrusting the often good intentioned internist or cardiologist with the intended benefit of reducing our elevated cholesterol levels, only to experience spastic side effects or worse. The link to the article listed below is a must read if you are candidate for cardiac risk factors, with heredity and lifestyle heading the concern. While diet and exercise can prove to be extremely beneficial behavior modifications, there are times when additional measures must be employed.
Personally, my elevation in cholesterol (240 total) at age 35 got my attention quickly! I stopped consuming half a brick of cheese in one sitting, avoided ice cream as a go-to desert, and kicked my cardio into a higher gear. I dropped to 179 in one month. If I recall correctly, I believe that I added a tablespoon or two of lecithin granules to my regimen as well. If my numbers elevate with age, I will add a form of CoQ10 (Ubiquinol) to my routine. Red Yeast Rice is another helpful natural remedy for a number of individuals. Always keep your internist and or cardiologist in the loop and COMMUNICATE with any changes you consider! My intention is not to turn you into a maverick and have you abandon your medical team; I just believe that the best informed make the best choices!
