New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Bad Cholesterol (LDL) is NOT Cholesterol and Is NOT Bad!?
so bad cholesterol LDL is not cholesterol and is not bad okay so the first point I want to bring up just to try to make this really simple is you have these little factories in your cells okay and you have certain factories that make proteins okay and basically what they do is they take the building blocks of protein which are amino acids and they start connecting them in certain shapes to form different proteins and that’s what you know skin hair nails certain hormones you know transmitters they’re just different shapes of assembled amino acids okay so one factory makes protein the other one makes lipids certain fats that make up your body you got fat in your skin yes fat in your brain and your nervous system okay then we have steroids that make certain hormones like estrogen progesterone testosterone cortisol things like that and then we have a detox function as well okay so if you drink alcohol for example your body has to break that down well it’s this factory that breaks it down and the name of this factory is called rough endoplasmic reticulum and this factory is called smooth endoplasmic reticulum not that you need to know that but this is where it starts okay and this has to be sent to a dispatch center like a post office okay so this post office packages proteins for sending and being secreted through the body so it’s very similar to the post office where they have to package it and put a label on it okay with postage so it could be sent out that’s called the Golgi body so one of the things that these two mechanisms make our cargo boats because the fat needs to be delivered through the blood and it doesn’t dissolve well so oil and water don’t mix well so it has to be packaged into a protein so this is what a lipoprotein is it’s a protein shell that holds fat so it could be transported called a cargo boat now let’s go to the liver right here we have the liver when you’re not eating makes these cargo boats okay and inside the liver you have these two mechanisms going on right here and so these lipoproteins are made and one of the lipoproteins is called VLDL very low density lipoprotein basically you have certain percentages of cholesterol triglycerides protein and other fats and all the fat soluble vitamins you have vitamin A II D k1 k2 okay so the purpose of a V LDL is to send out this this cargo and unload these materials okay and these vitamins so it provides the fuel to the cell like in triglycerides it provides material for the cell walls it provides material to build bile make vitamin D certain hormones and of course the antioxidants as well okay so when this unloads its cargo it turns into a LDL low-density lipoprotein now what’s the difference between this and this well we just have different percentages of materials so we’re going from 10% cholesterol to 26% cholesterol we’re going up because we’re lowering the triglycerides so the ratio is going to be a little bit higher that make sense cell so look at the 70% triglycerides in this but now then the 10 so it dumps a lot of triglyceride for the fuel to feed the cells and 10% protein 25% protein okay 10 percent other fats and 15 percent other fats so basically just see the ratios are changed and that’s really the difference now people associated this with bad cholesterol because this happens to be in the location we have a clogged artery well guess what it’s at the location of the crime scene but it’s there to help heal it okay to provide a band-aid to bring the cholesterol to help heal it LDL is only dangerous if you have oxidized cholesterol okay now to understand this a little bit more I downloaded a very important research article evidence that acute insulin administration enhances LDL cholesterol susceptibility to oxidation and healthy humans now basically I’m just going to give you the conclusion okay I’m gonna read this to you in conclusion insulin at physiological doses that means greater amounts of insulin is associated with increase LDL parry oxidation basically it’s oxidized cholesterol right that’s what we’re talking about independent of the presence of hyperglycemia and basically insulin can oxidize cholesterol regardless of how high your blood sugars are okay now why do they say that because of this next point right here this result supports the possibility that insulin resistance okay may be implicated in the genesis of early atherosclerosis and/or the progression of atherosclerosis which is hardening of the arteries through the attendant hyperinsulinemia what does that mean it means that you could have oxidized cholesterol if the insulin is high but it’s not necessarily coming from eating sugar necessarily it’s coming because you have insulin resistance and then of course originally came from eating sugar but insulin resistance itself produces a lot more insulin so it’s a kind of a feedback mechanism that you’re producing about five to seven times more insulin than a normal person and that can create the oxidation of cholesterol so we have two things that can create bad LDL one is high sugar and the other is high insulin okay so I just wanted to point that out and I’ll put a link down below if you wanted to read this you don’t have to worry about having a higher LDL if you’re on keto as long as your Sugar’s down and your insulin is lower by doing healthy keto and intermittent fasting over a period of time what’s going to happen is your insulin resistance is going to heal and the cholesterol is eventually going to come down alright so I just wanted to make this as simple as possible I hope you understand a little bit better you don’t have to worry about this it’s not bad it’s a boat that’s there for a reason it’s transporting fuel it’s trying to help you the bottom line is you just need to do things to keep your blood sugars and your insulin in a normal range thanks for watching so if you’re enjoying this content go ahead and share it with someone that could really benefit from it

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the so-called “bad cholesterol”, LDL. LDL is not cholesterol and is not bad. LDL is a lipoprotein, a protein shell that holds fat to transport it. The liver also makes a cargo boat called VLDL or Very Low-Density Lipoprotein and its purpose is to send out and unload the nutrients and minerals to provide fuel to the cells, material to the cell walls, hormones, and antioxidants. When the VLDL is unloaded, it turns into LDL or Low-Density Lipoprotein.
LDL is at the location of the clogged arteries to help heal it and it is only dangerous if you have oxidized cholesterol. Insulin can oxidize cholesterol regardless of how high the blood sugars are and it isn’t necessarily caused by eating sugar but because of having insulin resistance.
Things that Could Create Bad LDL
1. High Sugar
2. High Insulin
