There are usually no symptoms of high cholesterol. But in rare cases, a high cholesterol level can be detected from a nail condition.
According to Express, based on data from the American Academy of Dermatology Society, that dark lines appear on the nails, which may be a sign of serious health problems. For example, splinter hemorrhage indicates a high level of cholesterol in the blood, which in turn indicates a person's predisposition to developing cardiovascular disease.
Cholesterol is the main steroid in the body that contributes to the production of hormones, the digestive process and the building of cell membranes. The major part of cholesterol is produced in the body (in the liver, small intestine, and adrenal gland), and only a quarter of its amount enters the body with food.
The high level of cholesterol in the blood results in the development of plaques and blockage of blood vessels, which leads to the formation of blood clots that cause severe consequences and even death.
In order to maintain a normal level of cholesterol in the blood, linden flowers and flaxseeds can be used, as well as fresh vegetables and fruits, garlic, cinnamon and turmeric.
It is very important to reduce the intake of animal fats and sweets.
Exercise and physical activity, as well as quitting smoking and quitting alcohol, help reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood.
