The body produces cholesterol itself, but we also ingest it through our diet. By following a cholesterol-lowering diet, you reduce the risk of heart and vascular diseases.


There are two types of cholesterol: HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol causes plaque to form in the arteries, which can lead to clogging. This arteriosclerosis increases the risk of heart and vascular diseases. HDL cholesterol helps clear this plaque from the arteries. Thus, this cholesterol lowers the risk of heart and vascular diseases. Therefore, there is good (HDL) cholesterol and bad (LDL) cholesterol. Here’s a simple mnemonic: you want to keep your HDL cholesterol (good) as High as possible and your LDL cholesterol (bad) as Low as possible.
