Can cholesterol be good for you?


The answer is n-yes. Cholesterol is a natural fatty substance in all the cells of the body. It gives way to vitamin D, gives rise to the sex and adrenal hormones, and substances that helps your digestive system. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL), often nicknamed “bad” cholesterol, and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) travel in the bloodstream. When high levels of LDL accumulate on the walls of the arteries, it builds up into plaque-like layers, threatening the heart with serious hazards like: heart attacks, coronary artery disease, stroke, and arteriosclerosis.


Probiotics: A bacterial fat-leech?


To date, some research states that the primary mechanics behind probiotics’ capacity to lower cholesterol is that bacteria trigger the inhibition of the small intestine’s absorption of cholesterol, therefore binding it and preventing it from being sucked in the blood flow. According to the online June 2010 review of the US National Library of Medicine: “Past in vivo studies showed that the administration of probiotics and/or prebiotics is effective in improving lipid profiles, including the reduction of serum/plasma total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides or increment of HDL cholesterol.”


NOVA Probiotics: Your bio-plumbers


The American Heart Association states in a recent bulletin: “ Two daily doses of a probiotic lowered key cholesterol-bearing molecules in the blood as well as “bad” and total cholesterol… Probiotics are live microorganisms (naturally occurring bacteria in the gut) thought to have beneficial effects; common sources are yogurt or dietary supplements.” Your bio-plumber also comes in a capsule.
