What has happened to the days of taking our cholesterol readings daily and watching the amount of cholesterol in our blood. These days people do not care if they have high cholesterol and it does not matter if they take pills to lower it. I know for myself that I would not care if I had high cholesterol, but I do care if I have low cholesterol.

You see, too many of us do not understand how to manage our cholesterol. It is better to be in the low range than the high range.

The most basic idea of managing cholesterol is to exercise. Exercise brings down your cholesterol and it also reduces your blood pressure. Lowering your cholesterol and reducing your blood pressure helps you manage your blood cholesterol and also reduce your risk for stroke. Exercise also improves your blood lipid. These two combined work together to regulate your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

If you exercise and choose the right foods that contain essential fatty acids you will bring down your blood cholesterol and improve your blood pressure. These foods include salmon, mackerel, salmon and herring, sardines, trout, tuna fish, walnuts, almonds, flaxseeds, olive oil, salmon oil, extra virgin olive oil and fish oil. These foods regulate your cholesterol levels, blood pressure and blood lipid.

You can also regulate your cholesterol and blood pressure by choosing the right cholesterol lowering drugs like the ones that contain simvastatin, sibutramine and dolasetron. These drugs do bring down your cholesterol and decrease your blood pressure. They also improve your blood lipid. You can also choose the right cholesterol treatments like the ones that contain fibrates, cilanthes and rexid, to name a few.

You can control your cholesterol by using the right combination of exercise and the right drugs. These combinations are like the combination of a good diet and the right drugs.

You do not have to go to a gym and spend all your money on expensive equipment and trainers. You can simply go outside and start exercising in the privacy of your own home.
