Colesterol, algo común al que debemos prestarle mucha atención

colesterol-2

HABLEMOS PRIMERO DEL CORAZÓN

Como cualquier órgano vital, el corazón juega un papel fundamental en el cuerpo humano, por eso es tan importante cuidarlo, incluso en la forma que menos te imaginas. Echa un vistazo a tu estilo de vida. Un estilo de vida típico como hacer una alimentación poco saludable por ser demasiado sedentaria, y el tabaquismo, están fuertemente correlacionados con las enfermedades cardiovasculares (ECV), y podrían tener un efecto negativo en el estado de tu corazón*.

La historia familiar también puede repercutir, y recuerda, la ECV también puede afectar a las personas más jóvenes. Además de mejorar tu estilo de vida, Herbalife te puede ofrecer una serie de productos formulados científicamente y especialmente diseñados para apoyar el estado de tu corazón. ¿Y te has enterado ya de los riesgos de tener un nivel alto de colesterol en sangre?

¿Qué es el colesterol?

La mayoría de la gente sabe que tener un nivel alto de colesterol puede ser peligroso para la salud, pero, ¿sabes qué es en realidad?

Esta sustancia grasa natural es producida en el organismo por el hígado y también está presente en alimentos como la carne, los lácteos y los huevos. Te sorprenderá saber que el colesterol desempeña un papel crucial en la formación celular y en la producción de la vitamina D, las hormonas y la bilis para la digestión. Sin embargo, el exceso de colesterol puede conllevar un mayor riesgo de infarto de miocardio, ictus, ateroesclerosis y otras enfermedades circulatorias; de ahí que sea tan importante mantener controlado el nivel de colesterol. ¡Aquí es donde la filosofía del estilo de vida saludable y activo de Herbalife te puede ayudar!

¿CÓMO PUEDO SABER SI TENGO ALTO MI NIVEL DE COLESTEROL?

Dado que no hay síntomas claros que indiquen un nivel elevado de colesterol, la única manera de saberlo con seguridad es consultar a tu médico de cabecera. Sin embargo, echar un vistazo a tu estilo de vida puede ser un indicador de si puedes estar o no en riesgo.

Un error común es que el colesterol alto es solo cosa de personas mayores o con sobrepeso. Si bien es cierto que son más propensos a tener el colesterol alto, no son los únicos en riesgo. Sea cual sea tu edad, hay muchos factores que pueden jugar un papel importante a la hora de contribuir al aumento del colesterol (a veces hasta niveles peligrosos), afectando tu calidad de vida sin que ni siquiera lo sepas. Entre ellos se incluyen el consumo de alcohol y tabaco, una alimentación poco saludable con demasiadas grasas saturadas y grasas trans, y el sedentarismo. Otros factores a tener en cuenta son la diabetes, una presión arterial alta, el sobrepeso y la obesidad. Un historial familiar con enfermedades del corazón también puede jugar un papel importante*.

YO NO ESTOY EN RIESGO DE COLESTEROL ALTO… ¿VERDAD?

Incluso si eres joven y tu estado físico es razonablemente saludable, aún podrían existir elementos de tu estilo de vida que contribuyen a un nivel de colesterol alto*. ¿Te identificas con alguna de las siguientes situaciones? Todas estas personas están en riesgo de sufrir un nivel alto de colesterol y deberían plantearse tomar medidas para reducirlo.

Conocer los betaglucanos de avena ¿QUÉ SON LOS BETAGLUCANOS?

Los betaglucanos son una fibra soluble que se encuentra en el salvado de la avena. Éstos son los componentes activos de la avena que ayudan a reducir o mantener tu nivel de colesterol*.

PRESENTAMOS BETAHERAT® DE HERBALIFE

¿CÓMO NOS AYUDAN LOS BETAGLUCANOS?

Cuando nuestro organismo digiere el salvado de avena, las moléculas de betaglucanos son liberadas y crean un gel que se une al colesterol. Esto se absorbe de forma menos fácil en el organismo. El proceso utiliza una parte del colesterol circulante, lo que significa menos colesterol en el torrente sanguíneo.

¿DÓNDE ESTÁ LA PRUEBA?

Se ha demostrado científicamente que los betaglucanos de avena reducen y mantienen los niveles de colesterol. Una gran diversidad de estudios internacionales encontraron las mismas ventajas preventivas positivas de los betaglucanos de avena en los niveles de colesterol en la sangre**.

Además, la Autoridad Europea de Seguridad Alimentaria (AESA) ha dado su opinión científica sobre la justificación de las alegaciones de salud relacionadas con los betaglucanos de avena, tanto en la reducción del colesterol en sangre y la disminución del riesgo de enfermedades del corazón (coronarias), como en el mantenimiento de la concentración normal de colesterol en la sangre.

Estas impresiones de la AESA contribuyeron a la decisión de la Comisión Europea en la autorización de declaraciones de propiedades saludables relacionadas con los betaglucanos de avena***.

* Se ha demostrado que el betaglucano de avena disminuye/reduce el colesterol sanguíneo. Una tasa elevada de colesterol constituye un factor de riesgo en el desarrollo de cardiopatías coronarias. Los betaglucanos contribuyen a mantener niveles normales de colesterol sanguíneo. El efecto beneficioso se obtiene con una ingesta diaria de 3 g de betaglucano de avena. La enfermedad coronaria tiene múltiples factores de riesgo y alterar uno de estos factores de riesgo puede o no tener un efecto beneficioso. Si tienes unas condiciones dietéticas especiales o padeces alguna enfermedad, debes consultar a un profesional de la salud. La Fundación Española del Corazón recomienda seguir una dieta variada y equilibrada y un estilo de vida saludable. ** Algunos de los estudios más relevantes: (AESA (2010). EFSA Journal, 8 (12), 1885.
