High cholesterol

High cholesterol is one of the predisposing conditions to cardiovascular disease. It is important not just to cut out fats in order to lower cholesterol levels, because there are some fats that are essential to health, and which in themselves actually help the body to produce the right sort of cholesterol. Cholesterol is an important starting material for the synthesis of other very important substances in the body, such as hormones, and so it must be present at a suitable level and in the right form. Nutritional therapy can help to create a healthy level of good cholesterol.
