How I Have Reduced My Cholesterol Level

health_checkThe gym that I attend do a fitness MOT every three months, the purpose of this is to see if you have improved your health and fitness.  When I had my regular ‘check up’ last August 2012 was shocked mine had rocketed to 7 and a safe, recommended level is under 5.

Cholesterol is a fatty deposit which sits in your arteries and if left there for a prolonged period of time can lead to health problems.   There are good (HDL) and bad (LDL) types

I was pretty upset about my cholesterol level being so high, it was something I didn’t think I had to worry about when I was in my 20’s, although my weight was (and currently still is) higher than it should be, I was eating a healthy diet and exercising.

In this months MOT I was overjoyed to see that my cholesterol level has come down to 5.6, which is much better than it was.

Fibre can not be absorbed by the body which is why it helps to keep you regular and eliminate toxins in the body.  In the case of cholesterol the soluble fibre clings to the cholesterol and aids its removal from the body.

Having a daily scoop of soluble fibre is the only significant difference I have made which has led to my cholesterol levels reducing.  To read about the Arbonne Daily Fibre Boost which I have been using click here.  It’s item #2075.
