About your cholesterol,
Cholesterol has been years in a deteriorating put daylight. Previously it was below 10 mmol / l, but this figure is still lower. Cholesterol is in all cells of the body formed, but mostly in the liver, intestines, adrenal glands, reproductive organs and placenta. For a small percentage we get from the diet. Suggest that cholesterol is a serious poison that we can die. This is a big misconception. With a shortage of cholesterol we are seriously ill or we die from heart weakness or cancer. Therefore cholesterol is essential for good health.
Too much cholesterol is a sign of disease, an infection such as fever and not the cause. For suppression of fever pneumonia can not cure it and so will not improve health by lowering cholesterol levels artificially with poison.
Characteristics of cholesterol
Cholesterol is a major sterol in the human body and a part of the plasma and intracellular membranes. We find it in the myelin structures of the brains and central nervous system and in small quantities in the membranes of mitochondria.
In the liver, cholesterol is converted to bile saltNecessary for the absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, E, D and K).
Cholesterol is important for the formation of steroid hormones. These are hormones of the adrenal glands and reproductive organs.
The hormones of the adrenal glands are the corticosteroids and corticosteroid-mineralo.
The sex hormones are the hormones produced by the ovaries, the testes, the placenta (and the placenta). They are important for pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, the mineral balance and the energy released during the metabolism of fats, sugars and proteins.
Cholesterol comes from the ergosterol under the influence of ultraviolet from the sun is converted into Vitamin D2, Important for our calcium metabolism.
Cholesterol in the body is formed from acetyl CoA, which in turn formed from the sugars, fats, proteins and vitamins (especially B5) we eat. This acetyl CoA is gradually converted into mevalonate. This substance is converted back to:
- Coenzyme Q 10
Selenoproteïnen, selenoproteïne N, glutathionperoxidase, Deiodinase.
The Coenzyme Q 10 is essential for the functioning of the nuclei of the cells. Without this substance, our muscles and nerves do not work. Especially the heart muscle for its energy needs many Coenzyme Q10.
The cholesterol-lowering drugs, called statins, block the formation of mevalonate. Thus we get a reduction of cholesterol, Coenzyme Q 10 and Selenoproteïnen.
The Selenoproteïnen are important for the formation of N selenoproteïne and glutathionperoxidase. The latter protects the body from dust formation and maintenance of muscle. With a shortage of skeletal muscle pain, weakness and fatigue. These Selenoproteïnen also an anti-cancer effect.
The effects of the use of cholesterol lowering drugs
Coenzyme Q 10 deficiency: our muscles become weaker. In young people this will not occur immediately, but in the long run. By weakness of the muscles will be hurting them more quickly with exertion. The weakness of the heart will cause shortness of breath and extreme fatigue.
According to Lang Joen creates 70% of statin users an exemption to the heart. In Canada, the doctors warned against the use of Lipitor associated with heart failure.
The pathways are also dependent on an adequate supply Coenzyme Q10. Greater sensitivity of our body will take place, but our central nervous system has to suffer. The astronaut Graveline describes in his book: "Lipitor thief of memory", how he had bouts of amnesia by using Lipitor.
The brain cells and nerves on their walls need cholesterol. With a deficit in the brain cells arise psychiatric events, such as depression, sleep problems and memory loss. With a lack of cholesterol in the nerves we get nerve damage (peripheral polyneuropathy) characterized by weakness, numbness, pain and tingling in the feet. By decreasing resistance (coenzyme Q 10 is also important for our resistance) is inflammation of the nerves arise.
Older people (70 and older) show a higher cholesterol levels just to be associated with a longer life, mainly because they got less cancer and infectious diseases . Using cholesterol lowering drugs is their likely that a reduction of the muscle or the mind takes place, as a threat to the quality of life and survival in general.
The LDL-cholesterol: This substance is essential for our body because it is a carrier of beta carotene and coenzyme Q 10. This substance is not hazardous to our body, otherwise it would not be formed. Lack of LDL-cholesterol creates a shortage of antioxidants, making the cancer cells no longer inhibited in their growth.
LDL-cholesterol is a precursor of Pregnenolone, DHEA and progesterone. These are hormones that slow the aging process and important for our health.
Together with cholesterol acts as an antioxidant in removing toxic substances from our body.
Too much LDL cholesterol (the so-called bad cholesterol) and this indicates a disorder of nutrition and vitamins can be properly regulated. The LDL-cholesterol should be balanced with the HDL-cholesterol and normal cholesterol.
LDL-cholesterol and trans fatty acids:
The LDL particles in the blood have a certain major. Are they too small, there is an increased risk of vascular disease. The large LDL particles do us no harm. The emergence of small LDL particles is a result of eating trans fats artificially produced by the hardening of unsaturated fatty acids in hydrogenated saturated fatty acids. This hardening process is hydrogen at elevated temperatures led by oil. These are fats in cooking oil, ready meals, cakes, pastries, margarine and many other industrial fats. These artificial trans fatty acids formed are harmful to us, while butter good trans fatty acids for us. This unnatural trans fatty acids also have the ability to increase LDL-cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol to decrease.
Squalene deficit: squalene is a precursor of cholesterol, but is also used in our body for the formation of vitamin A, E, D and K. Vitamin A is our resistance to infections and especially in the winter with vitamin D is important to take extra. Vitamin D and K are important for bone formation, ie against osteoporosis. Vitamin E is very much important processes in our body as free radical trap.
Cholesterol deficiency: the sex hormones from cholesterol, bile salts and vitamin D and cholesterol formed a part of the cell wall. Together with a shortage of Coenzyme Q10 causes rhabdomyolysis, ie muscles tend to weaken and to resolve, including your heart muscle. This rhabdomyolysis can create one kidney damage. And by the release of toxic muscle components cause a life-threatening renal failure .
A decrease in sex hormones your love life will not benefit (in most cases).
Selenoproteïnen deficit: Selenoproteïnen arise from glutathionperoxidase, selenoproteïne N and Deiodinase. A deficiency causes an increased risk of cancer. A selenoproteïne N deficiency indicates muscle aches, weakness and fatigue. Coenzyme Q10 is not the only means that these symptoms indicates a deficit.
Other side effects: The following side effects may occur by ingestion of cholesterol-lowering drugs: pneumonia, liver toxicity, fatal ulcerative colitis, pancreatitis (pancreas inflammation), tendon inflammation, blurred vision, headache, rash, nausea and other gastrointestinal problems Abnormalities in the unborn child.
Cholesterol is an important substance for the body. Too much cholesterol may say that there are deficiencies of vitamin B3 and B6, but this is not dangerous to the body. Statins are more dangerous.
Cholesterol has nothing to do with atherosklerose, heart disease, stroke or brain haemorrhage.
Lowering cholesterol can shorten your life and make miserable.
Comparative studies of statins and placebo did not show improvement of cardiac and vascular disorders using statins.
Cholesterol weaken the immune system.
Cholesterol raise blood pressure, especially under pressure.
What can we do to our hearts and blood vessels to keep well?
If you're anxious and still not convinced about the innocent
cholesterol, you can at a high content of vitamin B3 (niacin =), Vitamin B6 and taurine use. The flushing niacin provides warmth during half hours. Take it after dinner. There is also a slowly absorbed form, which gives no flushes. In liver disorders you must take very little (25 mgr / day) or the first level of vitamin B3 in the blood to measure. Vitamin B6 is always good.
Daily use of Coenzyme Q 10 is your heart and strengthen muscles and increases your chance of living 75%.
Oxidised cholesterol (oxysterolen) within as little as possible to get (this is not so good) you should avoid animal protein, especially meat and milk. Use plenty of vitamin C, beta carotene, and Coenzyme Q 10.
Very important is to measure the homocysteine level in your blood in combination with vitamin B12, folate and magnesium. Excessively high homocysteine levels (above 7 micromol / l) is harmful and indicates a lack of vitamin B12, folate, magnesium and betaine HCL.
Do not drink milk, because it inhibits the absorption of the necessary materials.
Schedule what you can take the best for your heart and blood vessels:
This schedule consists of opinions of experts in the field of cardiovascular disease.
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, preferably not from your own garden and greenhouses. Because too much fertilizer is worked with, include the fruit in 10 years time only half of vitamins and minerals (1986-1996). In fruit and vegetables are vitamin C, vitamin A, carotenoids, tannins, flavonoids and phyto-estrogens, all they lower cholesterol. The fibers also reduce blood pressure, but do a good belly breathing to promote the recording.
Wholegrain cereals, if you are against you, reduce the risk of ischemic stroke.
Being overweight increases your chance to get a significant stroke, particularly if accompanied by diabetes and / or elevated blood pressure. Let you check what is the cause of your overweight. Deficiencies of minerals, vitamins or insulin resistance may be present.
Chronic infections and bad teeth cause increased sedimentation and greater chance of silting of your drums . Brush your teeth properly and have your mercury fillings replaced.
A sedentary life and heavy smoking increase your chances for stroke. Do daily exercise and a sedentary hours every move. Smoking and coffee cause a brief vasodilation followed by a prolonged vasoconstriction. Thereby creating vascular lesions which accumulate fat again what a vasoconstriction effect.
Let your blood to determine blood group and follow the diet. Do not drink milk because many cholesterol and salt in it.
Use the following resources:
Coenzyme Q 10 1-2 x daily 100 mgr
In order to reduce homocysteine levels to 5 to 7 micromol / l can take the following funds (after any provision in the blood):
a. vitamin B 12 2000mcg/week
b. folic acid 2 mgr / day
c. pyridoxal-5-phosphate 1 x 50 mgr / day
d. betaine HCL 3 x 1 tabl during the meal
e. magnesiumorotaat 1 x 500 mgr / day
Niacin 3 x 100 mgr / day after dinner because of the heat waves that we can get. A slowly absorbed form is there and it does not flushes. But then your liver auditing functions, because in these disorders is niacin (vitamin B3 =) are low dose.
Vitamin C 3 x 1000-2000 mgr / day
Vitamin E complex 2 -3 x 400 mgr / day
EPA / DHA omega 3 = 2 x 500-1000 mgr / day and a good source of alpha linolenic acid such as flaxseed and fatty fish.
Garlic 25-100 mgr / kg body weight.
Proline 3000 mgr / day
l-lysine 6000 mgr / day
Vitamin D 1000 IU / day. And the shortage could disrupt calcium metabolism and thus cause heart failure.
Doctors and specialists still prescribe cholesterol lowering drugs is due to the advertising of the pharmaceutical industry inaccurate data and research shows that the figures do not omit in their suits.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs could be your death and you do not succeed with the resources indicated above.
Red yeast rice as an alternative to statins
2009 - It is estimated that approximately 20% of the people who get prescribed statins, because the occurrence of an event muscle pain, the use of these drugs must stop. For these people, to treat a high cholesterol, the supplementation with red yeast rice (red yeast rice) in combination with a change of lifestyle possible alternative, according to a U.S. study.
The study was conducted with 62 dyslipidemiepatiënten who were stopped because of muscle complaints with the use of at least one type of statin. They were divided into random groups, over half years gesuppleerd twice daily with either 1800 mg of red yeast rice (Sylvan Bioproducts) or a placebo. In addition, all during the first 3 months of supervised study period in a healthy lifestyle. This included nutrition and exercise advice.
It appeared that the LDL-cholesterol levels in the red yeast rice group declined significantly more than in the placebo group. For those who took red yeast rice, it was after 3 months because an average 27% decreased LDL-cholesterol measured by a decrease of 6% in the placebo group. After 6 months, the decrease in LDL-cholesterol in the red yeast rice group still more than 21%, while the decrease in the placebo group did not go beyond about 8%. Both at week 12 and at week 24, mean LDL cholesterol in the red yeast rice group significantly lower than in the placebo group. The same was true for total cholesterol levels. Only 2 of the 29 patients who took red yeast rice, developed myalgia. There were no significant differences observed regarding the blood levels of HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, liver enzymes and creatinine, a marker for muscle damage.
