Your Cholesterol #’s – What Do They Really Mean?

on August 25, 2011

The American Heart Association provides information about normal cholesterol levels and the dangers of high cholesterol:

Total Cholesterol Level Category
Less than 200 mg/dL Desirable level that puts you at lower risk for coronary heart disease. A cholesterol level of 200 mg/dL or higher raises your risk.
200 to 239 mg/dL Borderline high
240 mg/dL and above High blood cholesterol.  A person with this level has more than twice the risk of coronary heart disease as someone whose cholesterol is below 200 mg/dL.

High blood cholesterol is nothing to fool around with – according to the CDC.gov site in 2006, 631,636 people died of heart disease and heart disease caused 26% of deaths – that’s more than one in every four – in the United States.[1]

What Cholesterol Looks Like

The Center for Disease Control also states that if you have heart disease, lowering your cholesterol can reduce your risk of having a heart attack – Just by lowering your cholesterol while healthy can reduce your risk of developing it![2]

Risk Factor                                                 %

Inactivity                                                                    39.5

Obesity                                                                          33.9

High Blood Pressure                                                30.5

Cigarette Smoking                                                    20.8

High Cholesterol                                                        15.6

Diabetes                                                                         10.1

Research has shown that you need to consume 4,000mg to 6,000mg of the highest possible quality of L-arginine each day in order to receive meaningful benefits. It is critical to read and compare labels when choosing a cardio health supplement. Unlike the low quality “food grade” versions of L-arginine found in your local health food store, Cardio~Juvenate+ contains 5,000mg of the purest high grade elemental L-arginine available in each serving, which is the perfect amount to boost production of Nitric Oxide in the body.
