Cholesterol & Heart Health

Cholesterol & Heart Health

Article Published February 3, 2021
Americans currently spend billions each year on cholesterol lowering medication without addressing one of the main causes of an elevated lipid panel. Before I get into that discussion, let’s talk about cholesterol. Cholesterol is essential to rebuild cell membranes as well as make hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, and cortisol. Cholesterol is not the enemy! What most don’t realize is how critical diet and lifestyle are for maintaining a healthy balance.
Let’s start with diet. If you are avoiding eggs or tossing the yolks, hear me out. When you remove eggs or egg yolk from your diet, you also remove an excellent form of protein which supports a healthy weight, as well as the nutrients lutein, zeaxanthin, choline and vitamin A. Lutein & zeaxanthin are important in reducing risk of cataracts & macular degeneration. Vitamin A important for vision health and choline for brain function and fatty liver. Eat those organic eggs (unless you have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs). Though they contain cholesterol, they won’t necessarily raise your numbers!

One cause of high cholesterol is eating sugars and refined carbs (cookies, bread, crackers, candy – anything man-made basically). Excess sugar consumption leads to excess insulin production which leads to an increase in cholesterol and triglycerides. Refined sugar also leads to increased inflammation, and the LDL (lousy cholesterol) number skyrockets!


In addition to dietary changes (which are essential), we have a very effective supplement, Bergamot, from a quality practitioner line that has proven itself as a leader in heart health!

Dr. Vincenzo Mollace at the University of Catanzarohas has championed several clinical trials that demonstrated specific fractions in Bergamot supported healthy levels of every blood lipid marker by targeting the source of cholesterol production. If you are looking for a safe and effective way to reduce cholesterol, inflammation and improve cardiovascular wellness, Bergamot is a winner. Buy Bergamot from The Natural Alternative because it is proven to work with so many customers!

If you need help with sugar cravings, insulin resistance, weight loss or any other ongoing health issue, schedule an appointment with our clinical nutritionist today and start feeling better tomorrow!
