Cholesterol Culture


High cholesterol is a symptom of underactive thyroid function.

The thyroid helps convert cholesterol into highly protective anti-inflammatory substances, pregnenolone, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and bile.

As you age and your metabolism slows, rising cholesterol helps defend against stress, inflammation, infection, disease, and degeneration.

Lowering cholesterol with statin drugs and consuming polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) has been associated with increased mortality, particularly from cancer.

Biologically speaking, lowering cholesterol by improving thyroid metabolism makes more sense, thereby converting more into protective things.
