In today's fast-paced lifestyle and dietary habits, there is a growing risk of elevated cholesterol levels. Cholesterol, a waxy substance found in the blood, is produced by the liver and also enters the body through foods consumed.

The body needs cholesterol to stay healthy, but excessive levels can lead to serious health issues. Elevated cholesterol levels significantly increase the risk of heart disease, strokes, and heart attacks. Taking steps to lower cholesterol levels is crucial to mitigating these risks.

Ways to Lower Cholesterol

  1. Medication According to the World Heart Federation (WHF), certain medications like statins can help reduce cholesterol levels or prevent its dangers. However, improving lifestyle and diet is advisable to avoid reliance solely on medications.

  2. Reduce Salt Intake Reduce the consumption of high-salt foods. Incorporate fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet. This helps lower cholesterol levels and promotes overall health.

  3. Limit Animal Fats Restrict intake of meats high in fat. Animal fats can rapidly increase cholesterol levels. Instead, focus on consuming foods rich in healthy fats and maintaining a controlled weight.

  4. Avoid Alcohol and Smoking According to the World Heart Federation (WHF), avoiding alcohol and cigarettes is essential to prevent and reduce cholesterol levels. This practice can help prevent various health problems and keep cholesterol levels from rising.

  5. Manage Stress, Exercise Regularly The WHF suggests that managing stress and exercising regularly can help control cholesterol levels. Engaging in at least 30 minutes of exercise daily can contribute to overall fitness and well-being.
