    Is Cholesterol Your Friend or Enemy?

    Cholesterol has been demonized for many years, but with the rise of high-fat diets like keto, many people have begun wondering if cholesterol is really as bad as it was portrayed. The topic of cholesterol is a relatively complex one because there are so many things that can affect cholesterol or be affected by it including hormones, thyroid function, liver function, and diet and lifestyle choices. There are also many different opinions on what is a healthy cholesterol level, the rise in statin prescriptions, and much more. In this week's episode we'll cover some of the more common questions about cholesterol and learn if cholesterol is your friend or enemy. We'll also go over some lifestyle changes you can make and supplements that may help promote healthy cholesterol levels.
