I'm glad you made it to this page!
Since you're here I assume you've made the smart decision not to take statins.
If you're already on them, it looks like you've decided to stop.
I have some great news for you!
There are affordable and effective Statin Alternatives that actually work.
And they come without side effects!
We can't say the same thing about statins themselves.
Before we get to the good stuff, we need to have a discussion about cholesterol.
If you're not interested in nitty gritty details on cholesterol, skip down to the next section where I talk about the statin alternatives.
Your LDL cholesterol number is a very poor indicator of your future heart attack risk. As a matter of fact it's almost meaningless.
It's not the absolute numbers you need to worry about.
I've mentioned this study before, but it's important, so here we go again..
In a study done with nearly 137,000 Americans hospitalized for heart attacks between 2000 and 2006, 72 percent had LDL levels below below the recommended guidelines.
Yup, 72% had optimal LDL levels according the American Heart Association guidelines.
Only 28% of those with LDL levels over the guidelines had a heart attack.
Looks like the AHA needs to take another look at the data!
LDL is the number most doctors are trying to drive down with statins, and as you can tell from the study above, this a complete waste of time.
Your HDL levels are 4 times more accurate at predicting heart attack risk than LDL!
Take your HDL and divide it by your total triglycerides, and you'll have an even better picture!
In a study done with 340 heart attack patients and 340 of their healthy, same age peers....
The ratio of triglycerides to HDL was the strongest predictor of a heart attack, even more accurate than the LDL/HDL ratio, reported the Harvard lead study author.
The recommendation is to get your HDL/Trig ratio down below 2.
If you have triglycerides of 150, and HDL of 75, you'd have a ratio of exactly 2.
In my opinion, closer to 1 would be ever better.
Fortunately, boosting HDL, and reducing triglycerides is not that tough to do.
Here's what you need to do to increase your HDL levels.
These include omega 3 fatty acids from fish, mono fats from avocados, olive oil, and grass fed beef.
Simple! Cut back on carbohydrates, and your triglycerides will fall into the basement in 48 hours.
For most people the lifestyle changes above will do more for your health than any statin ever could!
Lose some weight, increase your HDL cholesterol, lower your triglycerides, and you'll slash your heart attack risk.
