Nopal against too high cholesterol

Cholesterol is a vital substance, but excessive cholesterol levels are dangerous. Nopal not only regulates blood sugar, it also has a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol is important for the body: it is needed to build cell walls and is also a building block for some hormones. Cholesterol can have a harmful effect in addition to its useful properties: Increased cholesterol levels can lead to calcification of the vessels (arteriosclerosis) and subsequently to heart attacks or strokes. However, cholesterol is not the same as cholesterol: In common parlance, “good” HDL cholesterol is distinguished from “bad” LDL cholesterol.

A balanced diet is important to naturally lower cholesterol levels. Thanks to its valuable active ingredients, Nopal is suitable for supporting a cholesterol-conscious diet:

  • The high proportion of pectin is particularly valuable in the fight against cholesterol.

  • The amino acids and fibres of the Nopal cactus prevent the conversion of excess blood sugar into fat, which has a positive effect on total triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
