What is your knowledge
about tryglicerides?95% of fat in the
human body are tryglicerides.Yes.
It can be defined as a type of lipid (fat)
that circulates in the plasma and the blood.
A special lipoprotein called chylomicron plays the
important role to transport it throughout the body.
What is its main function?
Its key role is to provide the main part of the
energy that your body needs.So you can't function without
Every single day,you need energy and in order to
get that energy,you eat.In your foods,you can find
lipids,glucose and sugar, proteins.
They are all types of energy.After each meal,your
body uses what it needs to function and stores what it
doesn't need now for further use.
Then your body converts every type of energy into
tryglicerides and store them.
Now you may ask what is the problem with this
lipid if it is so important?
The main problem with tryglicerides is the levels.If you have
high levels,you are at risk of coronary artery disease. If
you have normal levels,it's good.
Below is a classification of different levels
- Normal Less than 150 mg/dL
- Borderline-high 150 to 199 mg/dL
- High 200 to 499 mg/dL
- Very high 500 mg/dL or higher
Did you remember where they come from? Yes,you are
right.They come from foods,from what you eat.
- So the first step is to take control of your
diet.Reduce fats and sugars you use to take.Eat more
fruits and vegetables.
- The second step in lowering this
lipids levels is to burn calories.You must make
exercises,walk during the day,be more
active.They are only the storing form of all types
of energy that haven't been used.
- The third thing to do is to take recommended formulas for lowering
They will help a lot.They also lower Hdl
cholesterol and total cholesterol as a bonus.
- The fourth thing to do is limit fat and
sugars in your diet and avoid alcohol.
Are these recommendations difficult to apply?I
really believe that avoiding coronary artery disease worth
applying theses steps to a good heart health.
