Cholesterol – Do You Understand It?

I realized recently that I didn’t really understand what the HDL or the LDL, the good and bad cholesterol, was or what it all meant.  I’ve noticed the large amount of people, who are very concerned with their cholesterol levels and are taking Statin Drugs.  There are far too many side effects that are connected to these drugs for me to feel good about it. .

Finding a good product that I trusted and would be willing to recommend led me to have to investigate the ingredients in the various cholesterol lowering supplements available on the market.   Did that open my eyes.

So, the article on McVitamins was re-written so that you can better understand what it all means.   When you better understand anything, you are better able to control and fix the problem.

After understanding HDL, it occurred to me that we all might benefit from taking something that increased the good cholesterol, instead of just trying to block the “bad” cholesterol which the body uses to be healthy.   After all,no matter how hard I try, I sometimes wind up eating incorrectly when on the run or on vacation.

My advice, read this article. Cholesterol

Do you use Artificial Sweeteners? Are they Healthy Replacemenets for Sugar?

A lot of people use artificial sweeteners because they have heard that sugar is bad for them but love things sweet.   Are they doing the right thing?

Artificial sweeteners have their own problems.   Here is a list of them with links to articles on their relationship to your health

Sugar Substitutes

Is there anything you can take to sweeten up you coffee or use in your baking.   It appears that Stevia is the best option.  Stevia is a herb that used in very small amounts make a great sweetener.  It comes in packets, or drops and works well.

Here is the definition:

Stevia: Made from the leaves of a Paraguayan herb, and usually found in powder form, it is 300 times sweeter than sugar. A little goes a very long way (obviously). It’s non-caloric, which is generally considered a plus.
