Hypercholesterolemia – the problem of modern people

High cholesterol level in blood is another huge problem of modern civilization. The purpose of the reduction is necessary to maintain the diet and physical activity that bring results after quite a long time.

Low density cholesterol LDL (bad cholesterol) is produced mainly in the liver, with continued excess of blood sugar. It seems surprising, but the consumption of the fat itself is not directly related to the strong increase in the level of cholesterol. Simultaneously obesity have no strong association with high cholesterol levels. Obesity indicates overloading the body with carbohydrates, which have been converted into biochemical pathways fat, as is the case in some individuals. In other individuals of the same, considerable amounts of sugar cholesterol. So often the big surprise is very high cholesterol levels in lean individuals who consume large amounts of carbohydrates (simple sugars).

Of course, too much intake of fat also promotes obesity, mainly by slowing down the combustion of sugars. It is still maintaining a significant level of sugar in the blood is the cause of failures in the fight against high cholesterol levels. It is important not only to reduce the diet of polyunsaturated fatty acids, but also to improve glucose metabolism of the organism, that is, normalization of blood glucose levels.




As it was said in the section devoted to diabetes, training at altitude conditions allow normalization of blood glucose levels by its better absorption and transport in tissues. Of course, it is necessary here balanced diet, but health effects are visible after 10 sessions of altitude training at an altitude of up to 2700 m above sea level. Additionally, during the training comes to greater heights burning of calories for energy, leading to consumption of larger amounts of free fatty acids and cholesterol contained in the LDL. It is worth mentioning that only LDL can be used by peripheral tissues for energy. Higher consumption of LDL lead to the improvement of the relationship between cholesterol „bad” cholesterol (LDL) and the „good” cholesterol (HDL – high density cholesterol), HDL favor. Such changes in the lipid profile (cholesterol diagnostics in the blood) is the most desirable direction of change on the way to regain control over their health (Tin'kov i wsp. 2004).

High cholesterol is often associated with elevations of inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP), tumor necrosis factor – alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin (IL). Yes unfavorable combination of high cholesterol and inflammatory markers may lead to life-threatening conditions and health: stroke and myocardial infarction. During the training in terms of lifting comes to strengthen the capacity of the body’s immune from the antioxidant enzymes, which contributes to the reduction of pro-inflammatory markers. This effect is compounded by regular physical activity.


Practice as a professional athlete!

Achievements of medicine, sports sciences and technology enable realization of altitude training in any room, anytime. What until recently was available only to an elite group of professional athletes, is now available to everyone through technology LOXYS. Stay or exercise (depending on the state of health) in mountain conditions cause lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, lower body weight and blood pressure in a very short time. With quickly noticeable positive changes that occur in our body, motivation in the struggle for health is growing.
