Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in food and the body. The body needs cholesterol to function. But too much cholesterol can build up your arteries and put you at risk for heart disease and stroke. Now is the time to check your LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the low-density lipoprotein, making up most of your body’s cholesterol. High levels of LDL raise your risk for heart disease and stroke.
Omega 3 fatty acids may help lower cholesterol.
Sources of omega 3: leafy greens, walnuts, eggs, fatty fish (halibut, salmon, and fresh tuna).
