How to lower your cholesterol on Keto?
The fat cell is made up of triglycerides (which is used a fuel) and cholesterol (which can’t be used a fuel). If you have excess cholesterol, your body breaks it down with bile and dissolves it with an enzyme called lipase. If your cholesterol increases, it could be that your body is having a difficult time processing excess cholesterol due to liver damage. Fatty liver, scar tissue, inflammation, endotoxins can all cause liver problems. Not having a gallbladder can also cause high levels of cholesterol.
Here’s what you can do to help normalize your cholesterol levels:
1. Consume plenty of vegetables (at least 7 cups per day)
2. Take bile salts
3. Use choline
4. Take niacin (vitamin B3)
As you adapt to a healthy keto diet, your cholesterol will naturally normalize on its own. Keto helps decrease liver fat, increase liver function, and increase bile production. So if you’re not already on keto, check out some of my other videos to get started.
