Blood lipids can be influenced by many factors, including dietary factors (meal composition and calorie intake), lifestyle conditions (exercise, alcohol consumption, and smoking), physiological factors (gender and age), health conditions (diabetes and obesity), and genetic background.
Read on for more information about blood lipids.
What are blood lipids?
Blood lipids are fats in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides. Cholesterol is a fatty substance produced by the liver and carried by the blood to supply material for cell walls and hormones. Triglycerides play an important role in metabolism as an energy source and in helping to transfer dietary fat throughout the body.
What happens if blood lipids get too high?
Abnormal blood lipids, or dyslipidemia, can lead to the development of atherosclerosis and a buildup of fatty deposits in the blood vessels, which may lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases. Abnormal blood lipids are a risk factor for chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease and stroke.
When should I have my blood lipid level checked?
If you’re over 20 years of age, it is necessary for you to have a blood test to measure your blood lipids. If your level is too high, your doctor will recommend treatment and will recheck your cholesterol every so often.
Are there any signs of high blood lipid levels?
Some people with high lipid levels have yellowish, fatty bumps on their skin, but usually, there are no signs. Without a blood test, you may not know you are having high levels of fat in your blood until you have a heart attack or a stroke.
How to reduce my lipid levels in my daily life?
Eat less saturated fat
Do aerobic exercises regularly, such as walking, running, bicycling, or swimming
Try your best to lose some weight if you are overweight
If you smoke, quit smoking if you can
Marine Active Peptide
A primary mechanism of action of antihypertensive drugs that are commonly used in middle-aged and elderly dyslipidemia patients is the ACE inhibitor.
The brand-new patent extract Chenland ClamBP™ is a natural marine active peptide derived from high-quality clam meat by our eco-friendly patented bionic enzymolysis technology. Many studies have confirmed that ClamBP™ can effectively inhibit ACE activity in the body, achieve a mild reduction of high blood lipid and high blood pressure, and maintain a healthy daily blood pressure level. ClamBP™ also has a great protective effect on the kidney, blood vessels, and heart damage, and utilizes a natural marine ingredient to avoid the risk of excess side effects caused by heavy medications.
