 What is Cholesterol?

You already know that some cholesterol is good and some is bad. But did you know that there are clear guidelines for cholesterol levels for average Americans and newly established guidelines for high-risk patients?

Cholesterol is:

  • Produced by the liver and other organs and also furnished in the diet through such food as meats, poultry, fish and dairy products.
  • Required by the body to insulate nerves, make cell membranes, and produce certain hormones.
  • Carried through the body by lipoproteins in the blood.

Two Types of Cholesterol

The Good The Bad
HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) transports cholesterol from the body’s tissues to the liver and other sites, where it may be broken down and excreted by the body. HDL cholesterol is commonly known as “good” cholesterol. LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) transports cholesterol from the liver to the rest of the body. LDL cholesterol is commonly known as “bad” cholesterol.

 How to Control Your Cholesterol

Many Americans have succeeded in lowering their LDL “bad” cholesterol through lifestyle changes. Eating right, exercising, and relaxing are some of the basic lifestyle changes you can make to improve your overall health. Your doctor can test your cholesterol level, or you can test yourself with a kit you can purchase at your pharmacy.

The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) identifies LDL cholesterol as the primary target of cholesterol management. Clinical research has shown that elevated LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, is the primary cause of coronary heart disease.

New Guidelines for High Risk Heart Patients Can Save Lives
Every year 1.2 million Americans have a new or repeat heart attack. A new set of guidelines has been released that specifically targets these high risk Americans. The new NCEP guideline determines that high-risk heart patients should lower their LDL “bad” cholesterol to a rock bottom 70. The previous NCEP guideline was 100.

LDL Cholesterol Level Guideline (mg/dl)
<100 (70 for high risk patients) Optimal
100-129 Near optimal/above optimal
130-159 Borderline high
160-189 High
>190 Very high
Total Cholesterol Level
<200 Desirable
200-239 Borderline High
>240 High
HDL Cholesterol Level
<40 Low
>60 High

    Cholestrol Dropped over 50 points I have been taking this product for the past 12 months. Not only is it simple to take and easy on the taste buds, but as you will read also much more effective than I ever thought it would be. In addition, I have been taking direct source of milk thistle and tudca powder, . I am forty-two years old and exercise regularly and eat moderately healthy.I recently took a physical for a new position I acquired with a huge company and my total cholesterol was 149. I was completely taken off guard by hearing this number because the last time I had my cholesterol checked was three years ealrier and my total cholesterol at that time was over 200. I was 39 then, and in much better shape physically than I currently am. It is true what they say that the metabolism takes a sharp decline at 40, not joke there!I assumed my cholesterol must have been at least somewhat lower but I had no idea that such a drastic change would occur. I believe these Benecol Smart Chews along with the recommended dose of milk thistle and Tudca have played a big part in this incredible drop from a once 200+ cholesterol rating. I haven’t grew any younger and my lifestyle is pretty much the same as it was three years ago (if not a little more relaxed) so needless to say, these are products I can highly recommend without prejudice.

    Benecol Caramel Chews Not wanting to resort to “drugs” to manage Cholesterol, I did some research on plant Stanols, and plant Sterols. They both seem to have the ability to lower the cholesterol in your blood. However, based on a Johns Hopkins health alert….plant sterols tend to lose their ability to lower cholesterol, and instead start to appear in the blood them selves. Where as plant STANOLS seem to stay active and continue to lower cholesterol. BENECOL is the only off the shelf item that contains stanols instead of sterols. The Benecol spread is good and tastes fine, but the caramel chews are portable so you can easily take them with you. I would recommend the chews to anyone who wants to keeps tabs on your cholesterol….they are reasonably inexpensive, taste good, and have STANOLS in them…and they are portable. I was able to lower my cholesterol by 80 points by consumming STANOLS and watching my intake of cholesterol….
