Reduse high cholesterol

Too much cholesterol?

In everyday life we do not realise that we have high cholesterol, but it is important to reduce it.

High cholesterol is not good for our cardiovascular system and can have all sorts of unwanted consequences.

Of course, we don't want to resort to medication right away. So how can we reduce our high cholesterol?


Recover-Me's special formula maximises the production of nitric oxide in your blood vessels.

Nitric oxide keeps the different lipids in the circulatory system in balance, helping to keep good and bad cholesterol at healthy levels.

Over time plaque can narrow the arteries and reduce blood flow. Once this plaque is build up under the endothelial cells of your arteries this plaque is stuck there forever.

  • A common place where plaque builds up is in the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that feed your heart. This plaque build-up causes coronary artery disease and increases your risk of having a heart attack. 
  • Plaque build-up in other arteries, such as the carotid arteries in your neck, can reduce blood flow to your brain and increase the risk of stroke.

Nitric oxide and cholesterol.

Cholesterol is a fat like substance made by your liver and also comes from food you eat and is then packaged into particles called lipoproteins. Your body needs cholesterol to make:

  • Hormones.
  • Vitamin D
  • Bile, a substance that helps you to digest food. 

Two lipoproteins that carry cholesterol are:

  1. Low Density Lipoprotein or LDL carries cholesterol from the liver to the cells. LDL travels through your bloodstream delivering cholesterol to the cells that need it.
  2. High-Density Lipoprotein or HDL carries cholesterol from the cells to the liver.  

Bad lifestyle habits (alcohol, cigarettes etc) cause damage to the artery walls and LDL gets in to repair the wall. Once LDL has got into the arteries, more LDL gets in and sponge cells form, also called plaque. This is why LDL is called 'bad' cholesterol.

Increased HDL helps your body prevent this build up of sponge cells from occurring in the first place.  HDL helps remove excess cholesterol from your cell tissue and from plaque in your blood vessels. This is why HDL is called the good cholesterol. HDL returns the excess cholesterol to your liver, which removes it from your body.

Nitric Oxide helps to maintain a good balance between the good cholesterol and the bad cholesterol.

Recover-Me boosts the production of this Nitric Oxide.

Cholesterol's function

For more insight into a high cholesterol level in the body, it is important to understand the function of cholesterol. Cholesterol is both good and bad for the body. At normal levels it is an essential substance for the body. However, when concentrations in the blood become too high, it becomes a ‘silent’ danger that puts people at risk for a heart attack.

Cholesterol is present in every cell of the body and has important natural functions when it comes to digesting food, producing hormones and generating vitamin D. The body produces it, but people also get it through their diet. It is waxy and fatty in appearance. Cholesterol is therefore a fat-based substance. It does not mix with the blood, which is water-based. It travels through the body in so-called lipoproteins.

LDL and HDL cholesterol - what is good cholesterol?

When people talk about cholesterol, the terms LDL and HDL are often used.  Both are lipoproteins, compounds of fat and protein that are responsible for carrying cholesterol in the blood throughout the body.

LDL is a low-density lipoprotein, often referred to as "bad" cholesterol. LDL is known as the "bad" cholesterol because too much of it can lead to hardening of the arteries. LDL leads to a build-up of plaque on the inner side of your arteries. When this plaque accumulates, it can cause several problems. 

  • First, it can narrow the arteries, restricting the flow of oxygenated blood throughout the body.
  • Secondly, it can lead to blood clots, which can break loose and block the flow of blood. This is exactly what could cause a heart attack or stroke. 

2. HDL is a high-density lipoprotein, also called the "good" cholesterol. HDL  something quite different. The body needs this substance in large quantities to function properly. HDL helps to keep your cardiovascular system healthy by removing the LDL from the arteries. It carries the bad cholesterol back to the liver, where it is broken down and excreted from the body. 

A high level of HDL has been shown to protect against stroke and heart attack, whereas low HDL significantly increases these risks. To protect the body, it is therefore crucial to have a good amount of HDL. This reduces the amount of LDL in the body

If you have high cholesterol, you need to take action as soon as possible. You don't want to run a high risk of cardiovascular disease. One of the most effective things you can do is to give Recover Me a try. 

Recover-Me's unique formula ensures that arginine is absorbed into the body. It is the amino acid L-Arginine that initiates the production of nitric oxide.  Nitric oxide regulates cholesterol by lowering serum and LDL cholesterol levels. This has the effect of increasing the amount of "good" cholesterol in the body.  As you have read, more 'good' cholesterol reduces the amount of 'bad' cholesterol. Which is exactly what you want!

Dr J. L. Ignarro on nitric oxide and cholesterol.

Dr J. L. Ignarro explains (in video opposite): "One of the most common causes of a heart attack or a stroke is the development of arteriosclerosis which is nothing more then an inflammatory disease of the arteries and this comes about when you have cholesterol build up, in other words the ‘bad’ cholesterol

This LDL cholesterol build up will actually cause a change in the structure of the arteries, the blood will begin to clod, there will be all kinds of derby clinging to one another and this constitutes the build up of plaque in the arterial wall which can obstruct blood de opbouw van plaque in de slagaderwand die de bloedstroom kan belemmeren.

Worse yet, if those plaques become disruptive, for any reason, they can travel to different parts of the body and travel to the brain you can have a stroke and if it travels to the heart you can have a heart attack.

The way the body protects naturally against the development of high cholesterol is through nitric oxide. Nitric oxide functions to keep the balance of the various lipids in the arterial system, so it helps to maintain the good cholesterol and the bad cholesterol at healthy levels."

In this video, Dr Ignarro clearly explains the impact of nitric oxide on our cholesterol levels.



Eat healthy food – A few changes in your diet can lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health. For example, you can reduce the amount of saturated fats you consume. 

Saturated fats, mainly found in red meat and full-fat dairy products, increase your total cholesterol in the body. Reducing your consumption of saturated fats can lower LDL cholesterol levels.

Exercise a little more - Exercise (sport) can improve cholesterol levels. Go running, swimming and do some strength training! A lot of exercise raises the HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) in the body.

Exercise for at least half an hour every day to reap the health benefits. Apart from improving cholesterol levels, exercise will also make your heart healthier.

Losing excess weight - Do you have some excess weight, especially belly fat? Fat around the abdomen raises cholesterol levels. Several studies show that losing five to ten percent of your body weight can lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Even a few extra pounds contribute to high cholesterol.

Small changes really count when it comes to lowering cholesterol. If you drink sugary drinks, switch to tap water. Watch your calories. If you crave something sweet, try something low in sugar.

Lower cholesterol by increasing your vascular system's production of nitric oxide. 

The signalling molecule nitric oxide helps regulate cholesterol by lowering LDL cholesterol levels.

Lower cholesterol by not smoking.

Reduce cholesterol by consuming less sugar. Sugar only makes the body produce the bad LDL cholesterol. Therefore limit artificial and quick sugars as much as possible. The latter can be found in for instance white bread and white rice. You do not have to exclude sugar completely, but make sure they consist of slow carbohydrates as much as possible, found in, for instance, oatmeal, brown rice and vegetables.

Lower cholesterol by sleeping well. 

  • Arteriosclerosis or high cholesterol levels can lead to plaque deposition and plaque formation in the blood vessels. 
  • If plaque continues to grow, it can obstruct the blood flow. Nitric oxide is our natural way of literally protecting ourselves from cardiovascular disease.

  • Dr Ignarro, Nobel Prize winner says: "The benefits of nitric oxide are numerous, especially for the cardiovascular system but it also affects other systems". 
  • Nitric oxide keeps your blood vessels healthy by increasing blood flow. What happens is that the nitric oxide ensures that all organs in the body receive the right amount of blood and therefore the nutrients and oxygen they need.
Lower high bloodpressure


If your cholesterol is too high, it is important to lower it. Ideally, we would like to lower cholesterol without using statins. Drugs always carry the risk of side effects.

How high can cholesterol be? That depends on the type of cholesterol. We distinguish between the bad type of cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and the good type of cholesterol, HDL cholesterol. Ideally, the total level of both types of cholesterol should be 5 mmol/l or better, even lower. LDL cholesterol should be below 3 mmol/l and HDL above 1 mmol/l for men and above 1.2 mmol/l for women.

Then there are triglycerides. These are other fats in the blood that can accelerate the process of atherosclerosis and should also be low. For triglycerides, a level above 1.7 mmol/l indicates an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Total cholesterol should not exceed 5 mmol/l. Between 5 mmol/l and 6.5 mmol/l it is slightly elevated, between 6.5 mmol/l and 7.9 mmol/l it is elevated, and above that it is very elevated.

High cholesterol and the liver.

The liver is an important organ for cholesterol. More than half of the blood is water. This makes it difficult for the blood to carry the fatty cholesterol. In the liver, cholesterol is bound to a protein. This combination of cholesterol and a transport protein is called a lipoprotein.

When you eat, food components are first transported through the gastrointestinal tract and the portal vein to the liver. The liver is a purification station between the gastrointestinal tract and the bloodstream. Only purified blood enters the circulatory system.

On average, 80 per cent of the cholesterol in the blood comes from the liver and only 20 per cent directly from food. The liver makes HDL and LDL and can therefore, to some extent, control the level of cholesterol in the blood.

Things go wrong when the diet is high in saturated fats, because the liver then produces too much LDL cholesterol. An unhealthy diet, especially one containing the wrong fats, increases the risk of having too much LDL cholesterol in the blood.

HDL cholesterol contains more protein than fat. HDL is considered good cholesterol because it picks up excess LDL in your body and carries it back to the liver where it is broken down.

How can I lower my cholesterol?

Cholesterol can be lowered with drugs called statins. But lowering cholesterol without medication is more desirable. This involves changing your diet from an unhealthy to a healthy one. 

In particular, the diet should focus on raising HDL cholesterol and lowering LDL cholesterol. We can raise HDL cholesterol by eating enough unsaturated fats. We can lower LDL cholesterol by eliminating saturated fats from the diet as much as possible, and raising HDL cholesterol has the benefit of lowering LDL cholesterol.

Which nutrients help with high cholesterol?

  1. Olive oil; this miracle oil helps raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol - all thanks to its abundance of antioxidants and healthy monounsaturated fats. Olive oil is also rich in phenols, plant compounds that lower the risk of blood clots. If you need to change your diet, consider replacing two tablespoons of olive oil with another fat source every day.
  2. Almonds; almonds are rich in unsaturated fats and play an important role in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. They increase HDL cholesterol and lower LDL cholesterol, and also help prevent the build-up of plaque in the arteries. However, it is important to consider the high calorie content of almonds.
  3. Garlic; Fresh garlic has a positive effect on lowering your cholesterol levels. Onions, chives and chives also contribute to lowering cholesterol levels.Oatmeal; Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for a reason. By eating a bowl of warm oatmeal first, you include some healthy elements in your diet. Whole grains are an ideal source of soluble fibre, and oats top the list. Soluble fibre is a gel that prevents cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Eat five to 10 grams of soluble fibre - at least a cup and a half of oatmeal - every day to fight bad cholesterol. Adding supplements like chopped apples can further increase the fibre in your first meal.
  4. Orange juice; orange juice has many health benefits for the body. Certain brands have a high concentration of phytosterols, plant compounds known to lower LDL cholesterol. Sterol-enriched margarine, soy milk, milk, cheese and bread have similar effects. An 8-ounce glass of orange juice is a healthy choice, but it is important to check with a doctor to make sure the juice does not interfere with medication. Check blood sugar levels if you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, as fruit juices can raise blood sugar levels.
  5. Chocolate; chocolate lovers everywhere, celebrate! Small amounts of chocolate can be good for your heart. Dark chocolate is full of flavonoids and antioxidants that help lower bad cholesterol in the blood. They also contain those beneficial monounsaturated fats. Just make sure the chocolate is at least 75 per cent cocoa. Otherwise, the treat does not contain enough healthy oleic acids to really benefit. Most people can eat a maximum of one ounce of chocolate a day.
  6. Blueberries; blueberries are a nutritional superstar, and these benefits extend to cholesterol. The berries lower LDL levels, which can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Eat them frozen, freeze-dried or fresh and you will be on your way to being healthier by lowering your cholesterol levels.Tomatoes; send unhealthy LDL cholesterol out of your life with tomatoes full of lycopene. Lycopene helps lower both good and bad LDL cholesterol, so eat at least 25 mg of tomato products a day for several weeks to see results.
  7. Avocados; avocados are full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats - the same fats found in olive oil. Eating avocados can slowly lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. Avocados can also lower triglycerides in the blood. You can mash the creamy, mild delicacy into guacamole or spread it on a cracker, slice it on sandwiches or stir it through salads.
  8. Steamed asparagus; cooking vegetables allows them to better bind to bile acids in the intestines. Bound bile acids consume more cholesterol to produce bile, so fewer harmful fats are left floating around in your bloodstream. This does not only apply to asparagus. Okra, carrots, beets, green beans, aubergines and cauliflower are all a little healthier after a quick boil.
  9. Pinto beans; adding half a cup of pinto beans daily can help slow cholesterol absorption. Chili, tacos and other traditional Mexican dishes taste delicious with the healthy addition of pinto beans. If you use canned beans instead of fresh ones, rinse them well to wash away excess sodium.
  10. Aubergine; aubergines are highly nutritious. They are high in vitamin C, potassium and folic acid. A cup of cooked aubergine contains only about 60 calories. You can eat them raw, roasted, boiled, baked, sauteed or stir-fried. They are also delicious in dipping sauces, salads, pasta dishes and stews. Chlorogenic acid helps protect against cancer and heart disease.
  11. Fruits rich in pectin; pectin is an ingredient used in jams and jellies. It is extracted from the skin and flesh of fruits, including apples, oranges and strawberries. It thickens liquids and forms gels when heated. It is often added to jams and jellies because it helps prevent separation. A study shows that eating foods rich in pectin can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Five servings of fruit a day can help lower cholesterol levels.

Supplement to lower cholesterol

Nitric oxide increases HDL cholesterol levels in the blood and sufficient HDL in the blood is able to absorb excess bad LDL cholesterol and drain it to the liver.

Nitric oxide thus balances blood cholesterol levels in a completely natural way.In our younger years we produce enough nitric oxide ourselves, however, from age of 23 (the long bone growth then stops), this production gradually decreases.

To be able to produce extra nitric oxide, the completely natural product Recover-Me is extremely suitable. Recover-Me has been developed on a purely scientific basis in a laboratory and is produced under strict requirements in Belgium. Many people have already experienced the benefits of Recover-Me.

What are the symptoms of high cholesterol?

The symptoms of high cholesterol are usually not obvious and can only be detected by a blood test. However, high cholesterol can contribute to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, especially if the level of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) is elevated. 

Symptoms of heart disease can include chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness and tiredness. It is therefore important to have your cholesterol levels checked regularly and to take healthy steps to keep them at a healthy level.

Many people have high cholesterol without knowing it. It is therefore important to have your cholesterol checked regularly by your doctor.

Is drinking water good for cholesterol?

Drinking water does not directly affect your cholesterol levels. However, it can indirectly help to lower your cholesterol levels. Drinking enough water keeps your body well hydrated and helps to remove unwanted substances, such as cholesterol, from your body. So drinking enough water is important for a healthy body and can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.


High cholesterol can lead to a number of health problems, but fatigue is not usually an immediate symptom.;

In some cases, certain conditions related to high cholesterol, such as reduced blood flow to the heart, can cause fatigue.

Other factors such as poor sleep, stress, lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet can also cause fatigue. It is important to talk to your doctor about the cause of your fatigue.
