  1. 1. Cholesterol and Ginseng Eugene Fung
  2. 2. What is cholesterol? <ul><li>Cholesterol is a waxy substance your body uses to : </li></ul><ul><li>protect nerves, make cell tissues and produce certain hormones. </li></ul><ul><li>Your liver makes all the cholesterol your body needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Your body also gets cholesterol directly from the food you eat (such as eggs, meats and dairy products). </li></ul><ul><li>Too much cholesterol can have negative impacts on your health. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why is a high cholesterol level unhealthy? <ul><li>High blood cholesterol level can increase your risk for heart disease, including heart attack or stroke. Buildup of cholesterol in your arteries is known as plaque. Over time, plaque can become hard and make your arteries narrow. Blocks the flow of blood. If an artery that supplies blood to the muscles in your heart becomes blocked, a heart attack can occur. If an artery that supplies blood to your brain becomes blocked, a stroke can occur. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Different Types of Cholesterol <ul><li>Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) delivers cholesterol to the body from the diet. </li></ul><ul><li>High-density lipoprotein (HDL) removes cholesterol from the bloodstream. Too much LDL cholesterol is bad for the body. HDL is good. </li></ul><ul><li>Total Cholesterol=LDLc + HDLc </li></ul><ul><li>“What you eat what you are” </li></ul>
  5. 6. Total cholesterol level <ul><li>Less than 200 mg/dl (5.2 mmol/L) is the best. </li></ul><ul><li>200 mg/dl (5.2 mmol/L) to 239 mg/dl (6.2 mmol/L) is borderline high. </li></ul><ul><li>Above 239 mg/dl (6.2 mmol/L) means you're at increased risk for heart disease. </li></ul>
  6. 7. LDL cholesterol levels <ul><li>Below 100 mg/dl (2.59 mmol/L) is ideal for people who have a higher risk of heart disease. </li></ul><ul><li>100 mg/dl (2.59 mmol/L) to 129 mg/dl (3.34 mmol/L) is near optimal. </li></ul><ul><li>130 mg/dl (3.37 mmol/L) to 159 mg/dl (4.12 mmol/L) is borderline high. </li></ul><ul><li>160 mg/dl (4.25 mmol/L) or more means you're at a higher risk for heart disease. </li></ul>
  7. 8. HDL cholesterol levels <ul><li>Less than 40 mg/dl (1.04 mmol/L) means you're at higher risk for heart disease. </li></ul><ul><li>60 mg/dl (1.55 mmol/L) or higher greatly reduces your risk of heart disease. </li></ul>
  8. 9. What can I do to improve my cholesterol level? <ul><li>Quit smoking </li></ul><ul><li>Exercise regularly. If you're overweight, losing just 5 to 10 pounds can help improve your cholesterol levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish- all of which promote heart health. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid saturated and trans fats, which can raise cholesterol levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Also limit your overall cholesterol intake to less than 300 milligrams per day and 200 milligrams if you have heart disease. </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT YOU EAT WHAT YOU ARE! </li></ul>
