Natural Way to Reduce Your Cholesterol Level

Cholesterol is a yellowish, fatty substance, which is one of the essential ingredients of the body. Every person with high cholesterol level is vulnerable to stroke and heart attack. Cholesterol is generally measured in mgs per 100 ml of blood. It occurs with lipids in the bodies, known as the lipoproteins, which are mainly of two types – low density lipids (LDL) and high density lipids (HDL). The higher the ratio of LDL to cholesterol in the body; more is the risk of the damage of the arteries and chance of heart disorders. But, the presence of HDL in the body reduces the risk of cardiac disorders considerably.
