DKV Seguros gives you useful and simple tips to reduce your cholesterol levels. Do not forget to take care of yourself: Say goodbye to cholesterol !
The excess of cholesterol in our blood, also called cholesterol, is one of the main factors that can cause the formation of cardiovascular diseases. Currently, cardiovascular problems, such as those that directly affect the heart, have become one of the leading causes of death in Spain. We must be aware of the risks we run if we neglect our cholesterol levels. Do not forget your heart!
The diet directly affects the state of health and also cholesterol levels. Eating a diet rich in fiber, Omega 3, Omega 6 and not overusing saturated fats can reduce it. The consumption of Omega 3 and Omega 6 acids reduces triglycerides and blood pressure. The effect it has on the arteries decreases the chances of suffering cardiovascular problems. Since our body does not generate them, we can obtain these fatty acids in fish from cold water, vegetable oils, vegetables, shellfish or nuts.
On the contrary, it is advisable to reduce the consumption of total fat, especially the saturated fats that are found mostly in foods of animal origin. It is also advisable to avoid trans fats, mainly present in industrial bakery and some prepared dishes.
