The Truth About Cholesterol From Better Way Health!

 

We all know the word – Cholesterol. In fact, it has become one of the most overused words in the last decade. Out of nowhere, it seems that cholesterol rose to the top of the charts when it came to illness, heart attack, and death in the United States, and very few companies, manufacturers or products seem to be THE thing to help stop this crises from turning into an epidemic.

 

BetterWayHealth.com is a company we speak a great deal about, and a company that is also finally getting ‘seen’ as the makers of products that are a must-have to achieve better health and a longer lifespan. The creator of this company had an idea – had a battle, in fact – between Western medicine and his own will and determination to prove them wrong and live far past what the ‘doctors’ said he could. And he did. The products – especially the Beta Glucan – is slowly becoming the only vitamin, mineral, supplement, etc. that people wish to have in their cabinets at home – and they’re absolutely right.

 

Now, there are a million and one reports about Cholesterol. In fact, many people are truly tired of trying to keep up, especially when reports vary and some are downright wrong. As with most health concerns, people want to live, but they get so tired of hearing only bad news they simply – as with a bad T.V. program – switch it off and decide to just try their best to live as long as possible. I can’t blame anyone, really; the news brings on the heart attacks all by itself.

 

An easy ‘cheat sheet?’ Cholesterol is simply a fat that is produced by the liver and is crucial for normal body functioning. Cholesterol exists in the outer layer of every cell in our body and has many functions. .

The functions of cholesterol are important, to say the least. It builds and maintains cell membranes; it is essential for determining which molecules can pass into the cell and which cannot; it is involved in the production of sex hormones and is essential for the production of hormones released by the adrenal glands; it aids in the production of bile; converts sunshine to Vitamin D (VERY IMPORANT as we’ve all seen in the news recently); it is important for the metabolism of vitamins A, D, E, and K; and it insulates nerve fiber.

 

The amount of cholesterol in human blood can vary from 3.6 mmol/liter to 7.8 mmol/liter, with the National Health Service saying that any reading over 6 mmol/liter is high, and will significantly raise the risk of arterial disease. The dangers are there – right along with the much-needed support that cholesterol gives (as with the rest of the systems operating in our bodies). High cholesterol can cause a variety of issues and illnesses ranging from atherosclerosis to heart disease to causing heart attacks. Other cardiovascular conditions come into play involving diseases of the heart and blood vessels, and people are at much higher risk for stroke.

 

Lifestyle causes are truly the one thing that can be altered to halt the issues brought by high cholesterol. Nutrition, not vitamins, will always be the most important thing to regulate in order to bring down the cholesterol levels. Although some foods already contain cholesterol (eggs, kidneys, some seafood, etc.) dietary cholesterol does not have much of an impact in human blood cholesterol levels. BUT, saturated fats do! Foods high in saturated fats include everything from red meat to cakes, cream, pastry, and many, many more.

 

When you add these choices to a sedentary lifestyle with people who do not exercise and spend most of their time sitting/lying down, they have significantly higher levels of bad cholesterol. And, of course, both of these items combine to cause obesity. Smoking, alcohol intake – we all know the ‘bad’ stuff, and cholesterol factors in with every single one of them.

 

High cholesterol levels are the highest risk factor when speaking about heart disease – the leading cause of death in America. Whole grains have been studied for their impact on cholesterol, but researchers mainly focused on more popular grains, such as oats.

 

But barley’s cholesterol-lowering powers have also been seen in small studies, and beta-glucan is the soluble fiber found in many whole grains, like barley. A diet with the most beta-glucan involves things like barley flakes, barley flour, and pearled barley instead of rice and wheat.

 

Beta-glucan makes a difference and has been seen to make huge differences in cholesterol when it came to certain research projects. In fact, when participants ate diets with low, medium, and high levels of beta-glucan in various project, their total cholesterol dropped by 4%, 9%, and 10%, respectively.

 

Beta-glucan is highly touted by BetterWayHealth and their products are extremely needed and extremely helpful for people to change the course of their lives and their health. The whole ‘body of evidence’ accumulated shows that beta-glucan, or foods containing it, modestly improve a person’s cholesterol profile. Modest improvements of up to 10% have been seen.

 

Beta-glucan also modestly improves blood pressure levels and may help limit the rise in blood sugar that occurs after a meal. The other ‘big’ research issue when it comes to beta-glucan is its positive effects on the immune system.

 

Studies suggest that beta-glucans can alter various measurements of immune function. Some of the immune-related effects seen in studies include alterations in the activity of certain white blood cells. Which is why, the word ‘beta-glucan’ is coming up more and more at your local doctor’s office. Beta-glucan products are now being praised for the treatment of conditions as diverse as cancer, infections, and sepsis (overwhelming infection following major trauma, illness, or surgery). Not to mention they are also being mentioned ten-fold when it comes to the world of aging skin and gingivitis.

 

Frankly, with BetterWayHealth.com, you and yours can find out all there is to know about the effects of cholesterol, and the amazing benefits that beta-glucan brings to the table.

 

So forget the reports, the research that’s forty thousand miles long with words that not even your doctor can give you the meaning to, and head straight to BetterWayHealth.com in order to get better, stay healthy, and live long!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.
