It is statistically proven that cardiovascular diseases represent the main cause of death in our country and in the rest of the industrialized world; pathologies that are, in most cases, caused by incorrect and harmful behaviors, habits, lifestyles for our body.
Let's see how to act by preventing the onset of these problems.
One of the factors that most affects cardiovascular health is cholesterol , for this reason it is recommended to keep it under control!
What are the benchmarks of correct blood cholesterol levels?
- Total cholesterol <200 mg / dl
- HDL> = 60 mg / dl
- LDL < 100 mg / dl
WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL?
Cholesterol, under normal conditions, is essential for many body functions. Most of the cholesterol we need is produced directly by our body (especially in the liver) and a part is introduced with food.
Like all fats, cholesterol is not water-soluble and therefore does not dissolve in the blood. Therefore, in order to be transferred from the liver to peripheral organs, it must be transported by special structures called lipoproteins.
Low-density lipoproteins ( LDL - the "bad" cholesterol) distribute cholesterol to cells. And this is positive but, unfortunately, along the way part of the LDL cholesterol it is deposited on the inner walls of the arteries , where it solidifies due to oxidation, forming the plaques .
Conversely, high-density lipoproteins ( HDL - the "good" cholesterol) perform the opposite function, removing cholesterol from the artery walls and returning it to the liver , where it will be processed and transformed into bile.
As LDL levels rise, cardiovascular risk also increases.
HOW TO DECREASE "BAD" CHOLESTEROL
The first step to lowering an excessive level of circulating cholesterol is to improve your lifestyle :
- Pay more attention to feeding .
- Increase physical activity .
- Recover your ideal weight .
- Possibly quit smoking .
The Mediterranean diet is perfectly suited to this situation, as it is rich in cereals, legumes, vegetables, fruit and fish.
In case of high cholesterol it is advisable to reduce the consumption of foods of animal origin (red meat and dairy products) and to increase regular physical activity ...
... but this may not be enough, so it can be useful taking a dietary supplement .
THE NATURAL AND COMPLETE NUTRACEUTICAL FOR CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH!
Ecosalute has studied and developed an innovative formulation based on Olecol ® , garlic and vitamin E to act naturally on the control of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure , simultaneously carrying out an antioxidant action.
We called it OLEALIPID because it acts on excess fats in the blood and because it is based on a patented natural active ingredient , extracted from olive leaves and supported by numerous clinical studies: Olecol®
- The olive tree contributes to normal blood circulation and carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
- Garlic, in addition to regulating the functionality of the cardiovascular system, acts on the metabolism of triglycerides and cholesterol.
- Both the olive tree and the garlic regulate blood pressure and they have antioxidant activity.
- Vitamin E contributes to protection of cells from oxidative stress.
OLEALIPID is the supplement that can be combined with traditional pharmacological therapies with statins. Totally free of monacolin K (natural statin) from fermented red rice and, for this reason, it is free of the typical side effects of statins, both synthetic and of natural origin.
WHAT IS OLECOL®?
It is a natural extract of olive leaves , highly bioavailable , standardized for its high content in oleuropein. It was developed to enable a safe and effective approach to lipid profile control.
Olecol® is the only natural compound that has a triple action on the control of blood lipids, proven by clinical studies. Furthermore, it has a high bioavailability also low dose.
How does garlic work?
Allium sativum it has always been useful in the treatment of hyperlipidemias and in the prevention of atherosclerotic vascular alterations . It can also be used in cases of mild hypertension .
What is Vitamin E used for?
It is a powerful antioxidant, essential for preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and avoiding the formation of atherosclerotic plaques .
