Cholesterol: Follow these tips to decrease the level!


Cholesterol is a type of fat present in the blood vessels, which the body uses to make cells and hormones. It is of two types - HDL (good) and LDL (bad). 


If the amount of bad cholesterol increases, then blood circulation in the body does not happen properly. Due to this, the risk of life-threatening conditions like heart attack, and stroke increases manifold.  

What should be the LDL cholesterol level?

According to the Cleveland Clinic, the level of LDL or bad cholesterol should be less than 100 mg/dL in adults. Whereas the level of good cholesterol HDL should be more than 60 mg/dL.
