Cholesterol & Healthy Aging
While it may well be a coincidence that both observations fall on the same calendar month every year, the correlation between cholesterol and healthy aging certainly is not!
“We have all heard of the relationship of cholesterol in preserving health and preventing heart and other vascular disease. Nevertheless, it is important to repeat the message from time to time since high cholesterol leads to atherosclerosis which leads to hardening of the arteries in our heart and major arterial blood vessels. This can in turn lead to heart attacks and strokes. The kicker in all this is that as we age, our bodies manufacture more cholesterol, especially the so called LDL or low density lipoproteins. This is the ‘bad’ cholesterol as compared to HDL or high density lipoproteins that is ‘good’.”
“Cholesterol is an important thing to monitor and reduce when it comes to longevity. High cholesterol means (simply) that your body has too much gunk in your arteries. That gunk can lead to heart attacks and stroke. It’s a good thing that lowering your cholesterol through lifestyle changes and medication is possible.”
In order to increase longevity and live longer Mark Stibich, Ph.D. recommends in his article Top 3 Ways to Reduce Your Cholesterol - Simple, Life-Saving Steps to follow three simple steps:
Change Your Diet
Take Your Medicine
