High Cholesterol Effects
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is made in the liver and found in many foods. Our body needs cholesterol to function optimally and the liver makes all the cholesterol that we will need. Excessive cholesterol can build up in the body depending on the amount of dietary intake of cholesterol and the rate at which the body synthesizes, breaks down, and removes it. Any cholesterol that is not used up by the body or removed can build up in the arteries. Over time, cholesterol deposits, called plaque, can narrow your arteries, impact blood flow, and raise the risk of cardiovascular disease.
When blood flow to the heart is compromised because of a plaque partially blocking a coronary artery, we experience chest pain, also called angina. A heart attack occurs when the cholesterol deposits or plaque completely block an artery carrying blood to the heart. Heart attacks can also happen when a plaque deposit ruptures and causes a clot in a coronary artery.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cholesterol
Why is Cholesterol health important?
Cholesterol is one of many substances created and used by our bodies to keep us healthy. Some of the cholesterol we need is produced naturally and can be affected by family history, while some of it comes from the foods we eat. There are two types of cholesterol in the body - the "good" or HDL cholesterol and "bad" or LDL cholesterol. Too much of the bad cholesterol and/or not enough of the good cholesterol can put us at risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. Maintaining a healthy cholesterol level can be difficult for some people, particularly those with a genetic tendency toward high blood cholesterol levels, and the right nutraceuticals along with a healthy diet and exercise program can have a significant impact on cholesterol levels, which, in turn, can help reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease.
What are the risks of high cholesterol levels?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Having high cholesterol puts you at risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States
- Approximately one in every six adults—16.3% of the U.S. adult population—has high total cholesterol
- People with high total cholesterol have approximately twice the risk of heart disease as people with optimal levels
- More women than men have high cholesterol in the United States
- More than 1 in 3 (81 million) U.S. adults currently live with one or more types of cardiovascular disease
- An estimated 935,000 heart attacks and 795,000 strokes occur each year
- Americans make more than 79 million doctor visits every year for treatment and management of cardiovascular diseases
- Nearly 6 million hospitalizations occur each year because of cardiovascular diseases
How do I know if I am at risk of developing high Cholesterol?
The following factors increase your risk of developing high cholesterol:
- Age - as you age, the risk of elevated cholesterol increases
- Diabetes - having diabetes increases the risk of developing high cholesterol
- Diet - consuming a diet high in saturated fats can increase cholesterol levels in the body
- Obesity - being overweight can increase bad cholesterol, lower good cholesterol, and raise total cholesterol levels
- Physical Inactivity - not getting enough exercise can lead to weight gain, which, in turn, increases cholesterol levels
- Family history - having a family history of high cholesterol increases your risk of developing high cholesterol as well
What are symptoms of high cholesterol?
High cholesterol itself does not have symptoms. As a result, many people do not know that their cholesterol level is too high. Doctors can do simple blood tests to check your cholesterol. If you have high cholesterol, your doctor may prescribe various treatments depending on your risk for developing heart disease.
What can I do about high cholesterol?
You can take several steps to keep your cholesterol normal:
- Get a blood test
- Eat a healthy diet
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Exercise regularly
- Don't smoke
- Treat high cholesterol
How many Americans have high cholesterol?
Approximately one in every six adults—17% of the U.S. adult population—has high blood cholesterol. Anyone, including children, can develop high cholesterol. It greatly increases the risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.
What are LDL and VLDL?
LDL is the abbreviation for the scientific term "low-density lipoprotein" or what is commonly known as "bad cholesterol." Because cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, they are transported to and from cells and tissues that need them by means of lipoproteins. VLDL is the abbreviation for "very low-density lipoprotein." It is assembled in the liver from cholesterol and apolipoproteins and is converted in the blood to LDL. It is increasingly being suggested that the size and concentration of the LDL particles relate more powerfully to the progression of atherosclerosis or the build-up of plaque in the inner walls of the arteries than the concentration of the cholesterol contained within the LDL particles.
What are "normal" LDL levels?
Simply put, lower the LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels, the lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke. In fact, the AHA suggests that LDL levels are a better gauge of heart disease than total blood cholesterol levels. It must be noted that other risk factors, besides LDL levels, need to be taken into consideration when determining risk for heart disease. The AHA, NIH, and NCEP all provide a set of guidelines to bear in mind when interpreting LDL levels.
How do LDL/VLDL cholesterol levels impact heart health?
According to the American Heart Association, when there is too much LDL circulating in the blood, there is increased risk for these carriers to build up, along with other substances, in the inner walls of the arteries that feed the heart and brain. Together with other substances, LDL can form a thick plaque that narrows the arteries and reduces their flexibility, resulting in atherosclerosis. In some extreme cases, clots can form blocking an already narrow artery, resulting in heart attack or stroke.
How can I find out what my cholesterol levels are?
Your doctor can usually order a simple blood test which will show what your cholesterol levels are (including total cholesterol, LDL, VLDL, HDL, and Triglyceride levels). Generally, men aged 35 and older and women aged 45 and older should have their cholesterol checked periodically. Depending on what your cholesterol level is and what other risk factors for heart disease you have, you may need to have it checked more often.
What can I do proactively to keep my cholesterol levels in check?
The most optimal way of managing LDL and VLDL levels is to eat a heart-healthy diet rich in dietary fibers (25 to 30 grams), preferably from fruits, whole grains, legumes, and vegetables. When combined with moderate exercise (30-45 minutes a day) at least 3 times a week, and a sensible diet, Cholesterol GOLD™, a synergistically formulated supplement, can help support healthy cholesterol levels.
How can Cholesterol GOLD™ help with managing healthy cholesterol levels?
The cardiovascular system is a sophisticated network and works nonstop 24 hours a day. Cholesterol GOLD is a proprietary formulation which contains key vitamins, minerals, and 6 clinically validated herbs to help maintain a healthy heart and vascular function. Cholesterol GOLD supports lipid metabolism and helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, thereby promoting healthy heart muscle energy, normal oxygen utilization, and healthy arterial circulation functions.
