Apo E = Apolipoprotein EWell, what in the heck is “Apo E”

Confused about coffee, cholesterol and fat?

 

Coffee is fine whether you drink one cup a day or up to 10 cups a day, there is nothing wrong, with additional caffeine and packs of polyphenols.. But, make sure the coffee is made from high altitude, organic beans, processed with minimal exposure to toxins, is fresh, and not consumed with sugar and or any type of sweeteners.

 

Cholesterol is fine, particularly since you’d be dead without it. So, the main question lie on how much, and more importantly, the composition.  The so-called bad LDL to be low, in specific we have two patterns  pattern A and pattern B, represent particle size and density, and as for the good cholesterol HDL to be high. In specific, let’s take pattern B as being a small dense particle, as that being the most dangerous in the LDL family and in regards to building up plaque in the arteries.

 

Fat is fine if its derived from grass-fed grass-finished butter, organic, cold press coconut butter, cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil, and fish oil that is purified without (any heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins, etc…) fresh (not oxidized or rancid), and from sustainably caught wild fish.

Plant Sterols

What foods are high in Plant Sterols?

Extra Virgin Cold Press Olive Oil, Almonds and Brussels Sprouts contain plant sterols. Smaller amounts are found in other vegetables and some fruits.

Are Plant Sterols safe to take?

Plant Sterols have the ability to reduce cholesterol by up to 10%. Slight side effect, such as upset stomach, muscle pain and liver damage (if taken in high dosage as a supplement) – my personal view on it ( I do not recommend it, as the result not as effective)

Soluble Fiber

Which foods are high in Soluble Fiber?

Artichokes, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Blackberries, Avocados, Pears – based on your Gut Microbiome you can always include Flaxseed for the additional fiber but not the omega 3’s – as our bodies do not absorb plant based.

What is the best Soluble Fiber Supplement?

(Metamucil) Psyllium, which is also called ispaghula, is made from the seed husks of the plantago ovata plant. It contains 70 percent Soluble Fiber, which means it can help increase fullness and slow digestion.
