If they can’t sell a drug for it… then they’ll try to destroy it!
And if you think that’s an exaggeration, just check out the latest news from the supposed cutting-edge of mainstream medicine.
For YEARS now they’ve burned piles and piles of cash trying to create an overpriced pharmaceutical to raise HDL cholesterol, aka “good” cholesterol.
And for the most part, they FAILED.
So what are they doing now?
They’re practically throwing a temper tantrum, claiming HDL isn’t such a big deal after all – and that one form could even hurt you.
But I’ve got what they don’t: I’ve got the TRUTH about LDL and HDL cholesterol, as well as how to keep the right levels of both.
What they won’t tell you about your cholesterol
After YEARS of trying to cook up drugs to raise HDL… and having little to show for it… a new report comes out conveniently claiming you don’t want those levels to be too high anyway.
They claim HDL particles can be “too big,” and that instead of protecting your blood vessels they can actually hurt.
That’s news to ANYONE who’s been paying attention to, y’know, science and biology, where higher HDL has consistently led to lower risks.
One study last year found that if docs want to change their focus, they should look at HDL-P, or how much HDL is in circulation, rather than the HDL-C currently measured.
It’s not that HDL-C is BAD so much as HDL-P being a potentially much better indicator, and higher levels of this specific form can cut the risk of:
- Heart attack by 37 percent
- Stroke by 34 percent
Now, of course particle size DOES matter when it comes to cholesterol.
I’ve only been saying this for YEARS now, especially it comes to LDL cholesterol… where particle size REALLY matters.
In that case, the bigger particles are better.
Like beach balls in a stadium event, big LDL particles just bounce around harmlessly.
The little dense particles are the ones you need to watch for – because they’re the ones that can cling to blood vessel walls, which leads to hardening and blockages.
But pardon me if I’m not sold on their sudden change of heart on this, especially when they’ll happily apply it to HDL but ignore it for LDL.
Fact is, their entire approach has been a complete disaster!
The “top line” numbers they focus on – LDL, HDL, triglycerides and total cholesterol – have MISSED up to 50 percent of all people at risk of a heart attack.
People with “normal” cholesterol routinely show up in the ER with heart attacks… while people with “high” cholesterol might never be at risk, yet are practically FORCED to gobble down drugs.
One way to balance out all of these forms of cholesterol at once without medication is with a potent natural therapy called amla, aka Indian gooseberry.
This almost magical little berry, concentrated in supplement form, can tackle the two biggest factors in cholesterol, and it’s not HDL and LDL.
It’s inflammation and oxidation.
And for even better results, combine it with other proven cardiovascular superstars such as CoQ10 and aged garlic extract. I like a form called Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract.
All of these are easy-to-find, inexpensive and totally safe, but of course talk to your doctor about your risks and the best approach for you.
