Exercising is the Best Way to Lower Cholesterol

Cholesterol is something that is in every human being. This is just one of the many things that are produced by the person in order to function properly.

Unfortunately, eating food and drinking alcohol that is high in sugar, fat and oil may do more harm than good to a person. The individual will soon suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack or a stroke.

The good news is there is a way to prevent this before it happens. It will take a lot of sacrifice and hard work on your part because the body will not be able to sustain the effects because … whatever we do we age.

Apart from eating less and making changes in the diet, the best way to lower cholesterol is by exercising. This will increase the heart rate and metabolism in the body allowing it to expel the harmful oils, which are detrimental to one’s health.

Those who have not exercised before should first consult with a physician to find out they type of excercise that it is best for them. Those who have a heart condition may not do something rigorous and will have to rely on something that is low impact such as walking, weight lifting or stretching.

The type of exercise will depend on several factors and not only medical history. This will also depend on gender, age and weight.

Your doctor can make a plan, then you should relay this to your fitness instructor as to what is safe or not. From there, an exercise program can be made and all you have to do is follow it.

After a week or two, you will see improvements in the levels of good and bad cholesterol in your body as well as a reduction in the current weight.

If you do not have the time (or do not wish to) enroll in a gym, there are other ways to pump those muscles and increase the heart rate. For starters,you can go for a brisk, 10 minute walking early in the morning or before going to work.

Alternatively, use the “free gum” simply walk up the stairs in your office or at home, instead of using the elevator. Instead of taking the bus all the way to your home, get off three stops and walk from there.

During any exercise, it is best to drink lots of water. This will prevent the body from dehydration that often leads to exhaustion. Have a water bottle and fill it regularly with tap water – it is as nearly as good as the bottled one.

Someone once said that health is wealth. By exercising, you will be able to lower that bad cholesterol in your body, maintain an active lifestyle and live longer than those who choose to do nothing. And we guarantee it.
