Cholesterol Cured Without Diet or Workout Change

High cholesterol is normally assumed to be affected mostly by your diet and physical activity, and that is true (sometimes).

But a new study in the journal Lipids in Health and Disease now shows there is another factor that has a much stronger impact on your cholesterol.

And this factor maybe more fun to manage than your diet.

The study authors analyzed the data of 1,054 people collected by Midlife in the U.S.. They were between the ages 34 and 84, with 55% being female.

They compared their psychological wellbeing with their cholesterol levels over a period of 10 years.

The concept of psychological wellbeing they used was not depression or anxiety or the absence of these, but rather a more advanced concept that included:

– personal independence and freedom,
– personal growth,
– healthy relationships,
– the feeling of controlling the environment,
– the feeling of having a purpose in life,
– and self-acceptance.

Interestingly, they found that most adults either enjoyed persistent psychological wellbeing or languished persistently without it over time.

The psychologically comfortable people had higher levels of HDL cholesterol (the good type) and lower levels of triglycerides (fat) than those in poor psychological health.

They did, however, not find any relationship between psychology and LDL cholesterol (the bad type), with both groups scoring roughly the same on it.

This means that psychological wellbeing can help us predict HDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

This shows why it is so important to feel like we are in control of our lives, to feel that our lives are meaningful and satisfying, and to like ourselves.

So, if we try to improve those factors, we can improve our cholesterol level at the same time. And who wouldn’t enjoy doing that.

But there is another easier, quicker way to get your cholesterol under control. All it takes is cutting out one ingredient, explained here, you didn’t even know you were consuming. Read more about..

How Resting Causes Stroke (this is truly surprising)

Brunette woman sleeping in the morning in her bedroomOften, doctors recommend people who are at heightened risk of stroke get some rest, better sleep, and not to overwork. This may, however, be faulty advice according to a new study from the University of Cambridge. In fact, getting more rest may actually increase your stroke risk 46%. But it’s a specific kind of rest that should be avoided.

Researchers used data from 9,692 people from Norfolk, England and followed up about their lifestyle habits and health history for ten years. In that time, 346 people suffered one or more strokes. Interestingly, those who slept more than eight hours per day on the average were 46% more likely to suffer a stroke than those who slept 6-8 hours. Those who slept less than six hours were also slightly more likely to suffer a stroke than the average sleepers.

This shows that although getting a good night’s sleep is important, more is not always better. Rather than sleeping 9-10 hours, use the free time for a light workout, socializing and relaxing in other ways.
