Lower Cholesterol to Avoid Stroke
Millions of Americans are trying to lower cholesterol using a variety of methods. The reason it is so important is that if they fail to lower cholesterol enough they are at an increased risk for stroke.
A stoke occurs when the blood vessels to the brain become clogged or blocked in some way, usually by high cholesterol. The vessels may also have an added strain from untreated high blood pressure. Either way, the flow of blood puts pressure on the blood vessels eventually causing them to weaken and break. The American Heart Association estimates that 700,000 Americans suffer from new or recurring strokes every year.
When the blood supply to the brain is cut off and stroke occurs symptoms may not be immediate. Unlike a heart attack where there is usually severe enough pain in the chest or arm to be immediately noticed, a stroke can take more time to appear. In fact, the conditions such as not lowering cholesterol or blood pressure can take years and years of building up until they manifest themselves as a stroke.
It is important to lower cholesterol and avoid stroke because a stroke can lead to so many other permanent conditions. There can be paralysis, memory loss, speech problems, and issues with other motor skills. It all depends on which part of the brain is impacted by the stroke.
Drugs can be used to lower cholesterol, but they also have the risk of side effects. To lower cholesterol and significantly reduce your chance of a stroke, you can turn to natural methods of reducing cholesterol. A diet that is low cholesterol and low fat and contains specific nutrients will greatly reduce overall blood cholesterol and the related conditions including stroke.
