How to Lower Cholesterol Naturally with Hemp Hearts 

How to lower cholesterol naturally is as simple as looking in your pantry and examining your fitness regime. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat like substance that presents itself naturally in cell walls and membranes everywhere in your body. Your body uses this fat to produce hormones, vitamin D and the bile acids that help to digest it.

It is absorbed in the intestines and then proceeds to the liver. In order for the fat to enter the delivery system, while it is in the liver, it is split into two different types of fat, cholesterol and triglycerides.

Once this transformation takes place, the two types of fat are packed into vehicles, then carried to fat cells throughout the body using the bloodstream.

These vehicles are called lipoproteins. There are three types of lipoproteins:

1. Very Low Density Lipoproteins (VLDL)

2. Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL)

3. High Density Lipoproteins (HDL)

Under normal circumstances, the bloodstream does a very efficient job of carrying the LDL and HDL Lipoproteins throughout the body.

Problems arise when there is an over abundance of fat in your bloodstream. The cholesterol deposited by the low density lipoproteins, (LDL) leads to a narrowing of the blood vessels and arteries of the heart which could result in stroke or heart disease. This is called atherosclerosis.

This is why LDL is known as “bad fats.” HDL usually collects the bad cholesterol and takes it back to the liver. That’s why HDL is known as “good fats.”
