Description of Armolipid Plus
Cholesterol is a fatty substance which we get for a third of our diet, and the other two thirds will be created by our liver. There is only one kind of cholesterol, but several transport systems of cholesterol. HDL (high density lipoproteins), also known as good cholesterol, and LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins), the so-called bad cholesterol. Too much bad cholesterol can accumulate against the walls of the blood vessels and accumulate there. This can significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, in particular myocardial infarction and cerebral vascular accident. A balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and little saturated fat, exercising regularly and quit smoking help in the fight against bad cholesterol. The supplements of the ArmoLipid ® range provide support and help to maintain optimal cholesterol levels.
