Home Remedies for High Blood Cholesterol

Cholesterol is one of the essential ingredients of the body and is generally produced in the liver. However, about twenty to thirty per cent generally comes from the food we eat. It is measured in milligrams per 100 millimeters of blood. The normal level of cholesterol varies between 150 - 200 mg per 100 ml. In blood, cholesterol occurs in combination with certain lipids (fats), hence, known as lipoproteins.

Types of lipoproteins

1. Low density lipoprotein (LDL)
2. High density lipoprotein (HDL)

Low density lipoprotein is considered harmful and is associated with cholesterol deposits in blood vessels. It can contribute to problems such as heart disease, stroke. On the other hand, high density lipoprotein plays a salutary role by helping remove cholesterol from circulation and thereby reducing the risk of heart disease. When the ratio of LDL to the total cholesterol becomes high, it increases the risk of arterial damage and heart disease.
