HIGH CHOLESTEROL

While high cholesterol can certainly be caused by genetics or age, it’s more often the result of preventable factors like nutritional imbalances and lack of exercise. The good news is that you can do a lot to lower your cholesterol by making positive changes in your life. Sync can help you identify the right changes to make.

WHAT CAUSES HIGH CHOLESTEROL?

If you have high cholesterol, you won’t feel it. In fact, you won’t know it unless you have your cholesterol checked annually. Your results will screen for LDLs, which carry cholesterol throughout the body, and HDLs which put it to use. LDL is considered the “bad” cholesterol because it can build up along the walls of your arteries.

COMMON SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

If you have high cholesterol, you won’t feel it. In fact, you won’t know it unless you have your cholesterol checked annually.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Even if you’ve traditionally had healthy cholesterol, bear in mind that it can change as you age or as your body changes. It’s important to get your cholesterol screened annually.

According to the CDC, 37% of adults in the U.S. have high cholesterol.

PREVENTION

Regular exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and taking the right vitamins and minerals will go a long way in ensuring your cholesterol is within healthy levels.

THE SYNC APPROACH

Medical and health professionals agree that the first step in treating high cholesterol is to address lifestyle and diet, rather than jumping to a prescription drug. There are a number of supplements that can be effective in lowering your cholesterol.

Treatment 1: We might suggest a high quality fish oil which has been shown to lower triglyceride levels and reduce inflammation and clotting. Plant sterols and niacin are also very effective at lowering cholesterol

Treatment 2: Or, we might suggest natural antioxidants in supplement form, including a professional grade Coenzyme Q10, which can be very effective at increasing energy and supporting heart health.

Treatment 3:  If you are currently on a cholesterol lowering medication, it could be depleting your body of key nutrients.  It is important to replace these with professional grade supplements.
