A piece of equipment I came across in the office today. A bit of of an eye opener.
Have a look at the difference between healthy cholesterol levels (left) and high cholesterol levels (right) and the effects they have on your arteries and blood flow.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL ) sometimes known as the bad cholesterol breaks apart through the bloodstream depositing particles on the artery walls. This ‘plaque’ build up can narrow or close arteries. The causes of this can be heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
I don’t mean to scare anyone but I hope this may serve as more of a reality check! However with the correct diet changes including an introduction of more High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), less trans fats, exercise and fat loss can massively contribute to healthy cholesterol levels.
