So this is another really fun topic to cover and it’s the secrets and things that your doctor did not tell you about your cholesterol levels. And for years now we have been led to believe that having high cholesterol is a bad thing and eating food that is really dense and cholesterol are a bad thing. The funny thing about this is that cholesterol is the building block of testosterone production. I know what you are thinking right now I already told you that having a higher testosterone level. Actually, prevent you from having heart disease.
Well, how does that work if cholesterol increases your chance of getting heart disease. Well, it’s a little bit complicated but I am going to break it down a little bit right here and truth, the truth about cholesterol is that there are two kinds of it. There is LDL cholesterol which is bad cholesterol as it stands for low-density lipoprotein, and there are high-density lipoprotein HDL as we call it which is good cholesterol. Now if you have higher LDL in your bloodstream that’s bad cholesterol and if that’s in your bloodstream. That can actually plaque up on the walls of your arteries and eventually cause heart disease by a decrease in the blood and oxygen flow that your body’s ability to produce.
But the HDL is on the other hand having a higher number in HDL is better so we want a higher number of HDL cholesterol and lower number when it comes to LDL cholesterol because That HDL those high-density lipoproteins actually pull that bad cholesterol LDL cholesterol out of the bloodstream. So it prevents them from planking up and building those blockades in the arteries so that your bloodstream and oxygen flow can actually work more efficiently and flow smoothly like it needs to.
And we will be covering the foods later some of the best foods that you’ll be eating to increase your HDL levels and lower your LDL levels so there is the truth behind cholesterol and testosterone production.
