Do you have high cholesterol?
I just like to share with you my opinions regarding the management of cholesterol in our body. When we go to our doctors and check our blood chemistry especially the cholesterol or lipid profile our doctors usually check our LDL or the “bad cholesterol”.
If the LDL is beyod the normal value, your doctor will give anti-cholesterol medications like simvastatin, rosuvastatin, atorvastatin, pravastatin etc. and these meds usually would continue for 3-6 months or even more than a year.
Some of you especially those taking synthetic anti-cholesterol regimens might experienced muscle pain (myalgia) and elevated SGPT or SGOT (these are enzymes found in the liver) and sometimes can lead to fatty liver as seen in the ultrasound.
My take on this is simply emphasize low cholesterol diet and once you have lowered your cholesterol to near target level you may want to get a more natural way of maintaining cholesterol metabolism.
There are Probiotics like Lactobacillus fermentum (ME-3) and the Unique Spore-Forming Probiotics Lactobacillus coagulans (IS-2), that will lower not just the LDL level in the usual laboratory results but deeply via inhibiting the oxidation of LDL through counteracting free radicals and served as anti-oxidants to prevent our blood vessels from injury and inflammation brought about by high saturated fat diet and high blood pressure.
I highly recommend that you take Probiotic supplement that contains lipid lowering strains like Lactobacillus coagulans or Lactobacillus fermentum.
Thank you and remember that life is probiotic!
