How JUVICOR Helps in Heart Disease
Simvastatin is a cholesterol-lowering drug, reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides and help to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Everyone has cholesterol in their blood. It is a type of blood fat needed by the body for many things, such as making bile acids (which help digest food) and some hormones. Cholesterol is present in many foods and is also made in your body by the liver. If your body does not balance the amount of cholesterol it needs with the amount of cholesterol eaten, then your cholesterol becomes too high. High cholesterol can contribute to heart disease by clogging the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to the heart. Over time, this can form hard areas, called plaque, on the walls of blood vessels, making it more difficult for the blood to flow. This blocking of your blood vessels can lead to heart disease (such as heart attack and angina), and stroke. High cholesterol results from many factors, including eating foods high in saturated fats, certain diseases or genetic conditions, and lack of exercise. Lowering high cholesterol can help reduce your chances of having heart disease.
LDL-cholesterol is called “bad” cholesterol because it is the cholesterol that clogs your arteries. HDL, on the other hand, is thought to remove cholesterol from the blood vessels and is, therefore, considered to be “good” cholesterol. There is another type of fat called triglyceride, which is a source of energy. High levels of triglyceride can be associated with a low level of “good” cholesterol and may increase your risk of heart disease.
In most people, there are no symptoms of high cholesterol or triglycerides. Your doctor can measure your cholesterol and triglycerides with a simple blood test. Visit your doctor regularly, keep track of your cholesterol, and discuss your goals with your doctor
