Cholesterol is a fatty substance that the body needs to make hormones, vitamin D and bile acids to aid digestion. Cholesterol is also needed to build and maintain the outer wall of cells. Your body makes some cholesterol (mainly in the liver), and some comes from the food you eat. Put simply, cholesterol is essential for life!


Let's Get To Know The Connection Between Heart Disease and Cholesterol


However, excess cholesterol can form plaque between layers of artery walls, making it harder for your heart to circulate blood, increasing your risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases.


You may not feel any signs of having high cholesterol, it is therefore important to have your cholesterol levels regularly checked as well as taking the right heart supplement has to offer!


In this article, we'll explore what's the relationship between cholesterol and heart diseases, its causes and risk factors, as well as what's the best supplement for high cholesterol in the market can find!


How is cholesterol moved around the body?


How is cholesterol moved around the body?


Cholesterol is a fatty substance which cannot dissolve in your blood (like oil and water), so it is carried around by proteins. These fat (lipo) and protein molecules are called lipoproteins, which are split into two main types:


  • LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) is the ‘bad’ cholesterol – increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

  • HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) is the ‘good’ cholesterol – helps to protect against cardiovascular disease.


If there is too much LDL cholesterol in the blood, it can deposit in the walls of your arteries, giving rise to cardiovascular disease. These deposits are known as plaque or atheroma, and the process is called atherosclerosis.


Over time, this will form plaque that causes the arteries to narrow and eventually become blocked. This causes a lack of oxygen to the part of the organ supplied by the artery and will result in tissue damage. Plaques can also rupture, forming a blood clot, which rapidly blocks the artery.


Depending on how severe it is, this can cause:

  • angina or heart attacks if it occurs in the heart (known as heart disease, coronary heart disease (CHD) or coronary artery disease (CAD)

  • a stroke if it occurs in the brain

  • other circulation problems (peripheral artery disease) if it occurs in other parts of the body


Hence, the higher your LDL cholesterol, the greater your risk of getting cardiovascular disease.




What are the factors that increase your risk of heart disease?


What are the factors that increase your risk of heart disease?


You are more likely to get cardiovascular disease if you:

  • Have high LDL cholesterol (‘bad’ cholesterol)

  • Have low levels of HDL cholesterol (‘good’ cholesterol)

  • Have high levels of triglycerides

  • Have diabetes

  • Have high blood pressure

  • Are overweight or obese

  • Eat a poor diet (diet high in saturated and trans fats)

  • Do little physical activity

  • Smoke

  • Consume excess alcohol


These are modifiable risk factors (can be changed by lifestyle and/or medication). Otherwise, unmodifiable risk factors include:


  • Age (cholesterol increases with age)

  • Gender (females are somewhat protected from cardiovascular disease by their female hormones prior to menopause, but after menopause, tend to catch up with men)

  • Genetics, family history (other family members with cardiovascular disease) and ethnic origin (certain groups of people have higher rates of heart disease)
