Cholesterol and Triglycerides...

This following email just came through from a customer and related to an article which I felt many readers would be interested in.

“I've been taking your supplements for a number of years now and whenever I get my cholesterol checked out my doctor doesn't understand why I insist on finding out my triglyceride level. I had read Warren's columns' in the past and I guess this recent report confirms what Warren preaches."

Hi Farzin,

If your triglycerides are reading at 345 then this is high. It would be helpful to know what your other levels are (your total cholesterol, your LDL, and your HDL figures) to see how these compare.

High triglycerides alone can be greatly helped by changes in diet, such as a reduction in processed foods, hydrogenated oils and carbs. So avoiding processed foods and concentrating on an increase in fresh foods, salads, vegetables would be helpful.

Grape seed oil is a helpful alternative to hydrogenated oils. Plenty of raw vegetables, lentils, seeds and fish are all helpful staple foods.

As a supplement regime, you could try Cholest-Natural at 2 softgels per evening; Omega 3/DHAs at 4 softgels per day initially, for around 3 months, then reducing to 2 per day for maintenance.

Total Balance could be added as a good daily regime and an aid to this protocol.

Exercise and diet/fluid intake are important during this process and for maintenance.

I would re-evaluate this after 3 months to see any progress or potential changes that need to be made.
My tryglicerides are over 600, will the above solution work for me too?

Hi 'Heyeli',

Your triglycerides are certainly high. Yes, the above protocol would indeed apply to you but I would increse the Omega 3 DHA to 6 soft gels a day for the first three months. You may not need the Cholest-Natural if you cholesterol is OK.

The most important aspect is to focus on your diet as suggested above.

If you could also take Total Balance that will help as it is likely to help make it easier for you to make dietary changes.

Dear Warren.

I had some bloodwork done in December and found out I have very high triglycerides.

lipid Panel

Cholesterol 263
Trigltcerides 956
HDL 44
Cholest/HDL ratio 5.98

Of coarse the LDL cannot be calculated because the tris are to high.
I started to eat better and riding a bike and taking the supplements below.

Centrum Silver Ultra Mens
1 Tab Daily

Sundown Niacin
1 Tab Daily

Antarctic Krill Oil
2 Tab Daily

Spring Valley Omega 3 Fish Oil
1 Tab Daily

Finest Natural Flax,Fish and Borage Oil
1 Tab Daily

Do you think this is a good combination of supplements to lower my tris, cholest and raise my HDL.
I also have high blood pressure, which i'm taking lisinopril for.
I would appreciate any info you can give me.
