Heart Disease

Just when you figured out the difference between the “good” cholesterol (HDL) and “bad” cholesterol (LDL), British researchers have discovered there is another, more dangerous form of LDL cholesterol they are calling ‘ultra bad.’[1]

The research, headed by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), found that ‘ultra-bad’ cholesterol, called MGmin-low-density lipoprotein (LDL), is created when blood sugar levels rise and sugar attaches itself to the LDL in the blood.[2] This process is known as Glycation which is more common in people with type 2 diabetes because of the increased availability of glucose.[3] With the addition of sugar, MGmin-LDL is ‘stickier’ than normal LDL. This makes it more likely to attach to the walls of arteries and form the dangerous ‘fatty’ plaques that cause coronary heart disease (CHD). As fatty plaques grow they narrow arteries – reducing blood flow – and they can eventually rupture, triggering a blood clot that causes a heart attack or stroke. Evidence in this study points to MGmin-low-density lipoprotein (LDL) as a key player that leads to heart disease. The discovery provides a possible explanation for the increased risk of coronary heart disease in diabetics and could help researchers develop new anti-cholesterol treatments, the researchers suggested.

Diachieve Sugar Defense can help reduce the formation of ‘ultra bad’ sticky cholesterol

If you are a diabetic, pre-diabetic, or someone who consumes a good deal of sugar, processed foods and refined carbohydrates such as white breads, rice and pasta, you may also be experiencing frequent sugar spikes in your blood and the formation of MGmin-LDL. The good news is that keeping your blood sugar in the normal range might help prevent LDL from morphing into MGmin-LDL.

Diachieve Sugar Defense was created with the most clinically proven natural ingredients available to help reduce sugar spikes and keep your blood sugar levels in the normal range. With added ingredients that can actually help reduce your cravings sweets, you are sure to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and protect your heart.
