TRIGLYCERIDES AND CHOLESTEROL vs CVDs

We know that reducing and maintaining the right level of cholesterol and triglycerides in our blood is key to preventing cardiovascular diseases (CVDs).1,2

The reality is that over four million people a year die in Europe due to a CVD; that’s why it is vitally important that the levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL and oxidated LDL stay within the right range.3



The professionals recommend4


 
TRIGLYCERIDE BLOOD LEVELS BELOW
150 mg/dL
 
TOTAL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS BELOW
200 mg/dL
 
“BAD” LDL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS BELOW
100 mg/dL

Diet and cholesterol


Having a balanced diet is crucial to keeping your cholesterol in check. If you don’t include enough valuable nutrients and your diet is high in unhealthy fats, such as saturated fats, you could be damaging your health. That’s why it is important to reduce your consumption of fatty foods and increase healthier options that are rich in fibre, such as wholegrain cereals, oats and vegetables.

Sport and cholesterol


Regular exercise is essential for a healthy body, inside and out. In fact, including physical activity in your daily routine helps bring down the amount of triglycerides in the blood and keep our cholesterol at a suitable level. Cardiovascular exercises, such as swimming or walking 30 and 90 minutes a day, are key to keeping your heart in tip-top shape and helping control our weight.
