Triglycerides-an ester formed from glycerol and three fatty acid groups. Triglycerides are the main constituents of natural fats and oils, and high concentrations in the blood indicate an elevated risk of stroke.
Cholesterol and triglycerides are two forms of lipids, or fats. Without them-there is no life. We need cholesterol for construction of cellular membranes and the production of several natural hormones. Triglycerides are chain fatty acids with high energy, which provide energy needed for normal functioning of cells.
There are two sources of these lipids: sources in food and endogenous sources (eg. When they are produced in the body). Cholesterol and triglycerides are mostly found in animal food and saturated fat. These lipids are first adsorbed in the intestine and then through the bloodstream they reach the liver for further processes.
When we eat too much food that contains carbohydrates, the excess is converted into triglycerides and it’s stored as body fat. Therefore if it come to increased level of triglyceride in blood, primarily, food intake containing carbohydrates and fats need to be reduced. The increased level of triglycerides increases the risk of atherosclerosis. Often this condition is associated with increased blood cholesterol.
In this article we present you one natural remedy which reduce High Triglycerides Levels.
You will need:
- Celery (500g )
- Lemon (1 Kg./2 Pounds)
- Water (2 liters)
First chop the celery and peel the lemons. Boil 2 liter of water in a pan and add the 500g. of chopped celery and chopped lemon peels and leave it on low heat for 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally. After 20-25 minutes, remove from heat, let it cool a little bit add the lemon juice from the lemons and stir well.
Lemon loses his vitamins when heated to high temperatures, so we boil only lemon peels and the juice is added at the end.
When all is ready, pour this mixture in jars or some glass bottles and place them in dark and cold place or refrigerator, where you need to keep them, to overnight.
Consume half glass (100 ml.) of this remedy for High Triglycerides 30 minutes before each meal.
