LDL is not cholesterol, Low density lipoprotein is a protein that shuttles cholesterol and triglycerides. LDL is the carrier that transports cholesterol from the liver to the vessels and cells and HDL transports the cholesterol from the arteries back to the liver.

The body makes 3000 mg of cholesterol. Why?
1. Makes cell membranes
2. Antioxidant properties
3. Anti-inflammatory properties
4. Makes vitamin D
5. Helps you make bile thus extracting fat soluble vitamins
6. Makes cortisol
7. Makes sex hormones (testosterone, estrogen, etc.
AND
8. Helps the body respond to crisis (infection)
9. It binds and inactivates bacterial toxins
10. Helps inhibit the damage from microbes
11. Acts as a band-aid to help in the healing of the endothelium layer.

There are 2 types of LDL.
Type A (large buoyant)
*normal, not involved in damage repair.
*last 2 days in the body

Type B (small dense)
*because these are small, they can enter the damaged wall of the artery and are involved in the clotting and plaquing.
*last 5 days

Look at your triglycerides - if they are high and your HDL is low, then you have more type B LDL. But if your triglycerids are low and high HDL, then you have type a.
Saturated fats will increase type A and sugars will increase type B.
LOW CARB, HIGH NUTRIENT DIETS CAN SWITCH YOUR TYPE B TO TYPE A.

Why would someone have too much LDL pattern B
1. Sugar
2. Cortisol
3. Vegetable oil (soy and corn)
4. Trans fats (hydrogenated fats)
5. Low vitamin C
6. Glycation (adding glucose/fructose with protein and fat): donuts, fries, carmelization, dark soda. Fructose cause 10X more glycation.
7. Surgery
8. Visceral fat

High levels LDL should be understood rather than merely lowered. Find the the real deeper cause.
