According to the department of health 2/3 of all UK adults have higher than optimal levels of cholesterol, which has been linked to atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease risk, heart attacks, angina as well as cardiovascular conditions.
Your lifestyle can contribute to elevated levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), and the biggest culprits include:
Poor nutrition high in saturated fats and simple carbohydrates
A sedentary lifestyle with little or no physical exercise
Your overall fitness and bodyweight
Smoking and alcohol
Cholesterol support supplements combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle may help lower your bad cholesterol (LDL) and promote your good cholesterol (HDL).
