Herbal Remedies For Cholesterol Accompanied By Gout.?
What cholesterol reduction and gout traditional medicine?
Cholesterol is a form of fat. Fats include several molecular forms, namely cholesterol, triglycerides, monoglycerides, free fatty acids, and so on. Actually, cholesterol is not always bad for the body. The human body needs cholesterol to a certain extent, so that cells can function normally. Cholesterol serves as a basic ingredient for the formation of various types of hormones, including reproductive hormones. Cholesterol also functions as a cell membrane that keeps cells intact. Another function of cholesterol is as a source of energy (after going through various stages of metabolism). Problems arise when cholesterol intake exceeds the body's needs. As a result, unused cholesterol will accumulate in the blood vessels and organs of the body, causing illness.
Gout occurs due to metabolism of food ingredients containing purines. Uric acid will be excreted in the urine. Increased levels of uric acid in the blood will cause a buildup of uric acid in the joints. The joint becomes inflamed, causing pain, difficulty in movement, swelling, redness, even in chronic cases can cause changes in joint shape.
The most effective way to reduce both is to improve diet and lifestyle. You can still eat fatty foods, but the amount must be limited. Choose the type of polyunsaturated fat, avoid the type of saturated fat and trans fat. Generally bad fats are found in oily foods, factory-processed foods, and fast food. Regular exercise 3-5 times per week, at least 30 minutes. The higher your activity, the more fat burning (including cholesterol) to produce energy.
Some opinions state that coffee, some fruits, and vitamin C can function as a decrease in natural uric acid levels. But this still has to be proven through a series of clinical trials. Gout is found in many foods such as red meat, organ meats, nautical dishes, fermented foods (such as bread), as well as several types of grains and cereals (for example oatmeal). You can still consume these foods, but again, in limited quantities. The proportion of your meal should be more vegetables and fruit, fish, chicken. Alcoholic drinks can also cause high uric acid levels. Exercise will help reduce levels.
Things you need to remember too, vary your type of food so that you get balanced nutrition. Don't consume too much rice, white flour, sweet foods and drinks. Maintain your normal body weight. Consult with a clinical nutritionist doctor to plan a good diet.
