Cholesterol (Part 4): Bad Cholesterol (LDL) is NOT Bad!
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Cholesterol (Part 4): Bad Cholesterol (LDL) is NOT Bad!?
hey guys dr. Berg here listen out of all the videos that I’ve done this is probably the most important video and you’ll see why because there is so much confusion so much false information that it’s very complex for people so I want to break it down step by step it’s a little bit longer but it’s very important so we’re going to answer the question is the so-called bad cholesterol LDL really that bad okay well first of all LDL is not cholesterol in order for to transport cholesterol through the body which is fat doesn’t mix with water it just doesn’t mix so the bias has developed a little shuttles or different particles or vehicles to transport cholesterol okay and you have LDL low-density lipoprotein and you have HDL high-density lipoprotein LDL which is considered bad really is a kind of a misnomer because LDL really is the cholesterol that goes from the liver to the vascular system to the cells so it’s going through the into the body okay HDL is this the opposite it’s going from the vascular system back to the liver to be recycled or eliminated okay so really these two types of proteins are exchangers that are just constantly working together to exchange cholesterol back and forth to transport cholesterol and triglycerides which are blood fats okay so that’s the first thing you need to understand let’s go to the next part okay so you may already know that the body makes cholesterol right it makes a lot 3,000 milligrams every single day that’s equivalent to about 14 eggs the cholesterol in 14 eggs the cholesterol in 300 strips of bacon or the cholesterol in about a pound of butter okay that’s a lot of cholesterol now why does it make so much well it’s there to provide raw material for cell membranes have to sell all the cells in the body are made out of cholesterol and you have a hundred trillion cells that’s why we need so much cholesterol so it’s part of the structural property of a membrane around your cell which allows exchange back and forth of nutrients and vitamins and minerals and glucose and all sorts of things so it also has antioxidant properties it prevents free radical damage and it’s anti-inflammatory properties it makes vitamin D it’s the precursor the building blocks for vitamin D it actually helps you make bile that then helps you dissolve the fat and extract the fat type of vitamins from the fact that you eat very important that without cholesterol you can’t have that happen cholesterol is there to make the stress hormone cortisol and cortisol is essential for life and all the sex hormones testosterone estrogen progesterone are all made from cholesterol these are the normal functions of cholesterol but you have additional functions that a lot of people don’t know about because cholesterol also responds to crisis like if someone has an infection the body cholesterol will go up because it binds and inactivates bacterial toxins it also prevents the damage from microbes it also acts as a band-aid so in the cell membrane you have the endothelial layer which is the layer around inside of the blood vessel okay and that actually has little pores that exchange back and forth white blood cells nutrition things go back and forth so if you were to get a little tiny lesion ulcer damage from various things which I’ll cover in a bit the cholesterol is there to go in there and help heal and actually to provide a band-aid that’s the real purpose ok let’s go to the next part okay so now this part is very very important so if you’ve checked out just check back in with me hang in there because this is the most vital piece of this puzzle okay there’s two types of LDL when you get your LDL checked on your routine cholesterol assessment it doesn’t differentiate between this type or that type so it’s type A or type B or they can call it pattern a or pattern B okay they don’t differentiate the two the type a is large buoyant that means it floats right it’s big and fluffy it doesn’t go into the epithelial wall it doesn’t create involved event any clacking or clotting of anything like that so this is more normal LDL okay this type B are small dense these keep these little guys can go right into the epithelial wall and they can start to be involved in the plaquing formation so when people have heart attacks and strokes you know they have more of type B okay it makes sense so you see more oxidation and build up plaque type a it pretty much last two days in your body type B lasts about five days so it hangs out longer so how do you know which is which you can do a very advanced test if you want but a better thing to do an easier thing to do I wouldn’t say it’s better but it’s easier is to look at the triglycerides and the HDL okay so let’s say your LDL is normal or high whatever if your triglycerides because there is a percentage of triglycerides in LDL in addition to cholesterol if you look at the triglycerides and the HDL if the triglycerides are high and the HDL so-called good cholesterol is low then chances are you have more type B LDL okay but if the triglycerides are low and you have high HDL you have more type a so that’s how you would differentiate what type you would have the last point I want to mention is this what types of foods will increase type A versus type B saturated fats will increase type A interesting when you consume more carbs and refined sugars and sugar itself you increase type B and this is why nearly all the blood assessments that I see we pick patients come in they always have high triglycerides and low HDL the people that are consuming carbs but if you actually eliminate this and you do more saturated fats you don’t worry about it because you’ll have you may have even high LDL but it’s a type A that doesn’t create a problem now one last point and this is the most important point let’s say you do have type B it’s not that it’s a bad cholesterol it’s not the villain it’s not the criminal it’s at the crime scene but it’s there to actually heal the lesion the problem the inflammation the damage from the inflammation or the microbes that’s behind it and so this is only bad in that it’s part of the chain of events that occurs that it’s they’re trying to fix things but in the process it doesn’t think the body doesn’t think long term it thinks with short-term survival so it’s going to form a plaque and a clot to try to peel the area just like you would if you sprained an ankle or broke a joint scar tissue comes in and heal it it doesn’t care if the joint moves anymore it’s there to protect and stop the motion so yes it creates the problem because you will die have a heart attack and stroke but the body’s not thinking long term is thinking let’s go ahead and patch that artery and let’s start putting a band-aid and starts growing bigger and bigger and bigger the point is that we need to change the eating plan we need to get these out of the diet and then your body can assimilate these a lot better all right so now let’s go to the next part okay so now the question is why would someone have high LDL pattern B okay we already talked about the sugar right because sugar creates inflammation it’s very destructive to the cells that’s why diabetics have a lot of nerve damage vision problems inflammation coronary heart disease so sugar and refined carbs are really bad okay also low thyroid will create it high cortisol will create higher amounts of pattern B stress vegetable oils the soy in the corn oil and canola all that GMO that’s vegetables it’s high in omega-6 fatty acids that creates more inflammation in the body trans fats hydrogenated partially hydrogenated fats will do it low vitamin C just
like a situation you get bleeding gums you get bleeding arteries glycation what does glycation that’s when you combine glucose or fructose with a protein or a fat so let’s say you take barbecued sauce and you put it on some ribs and you bake it you heat it over all 200 I think in 48 degrees Fahrenheit you’re going to get glycation so the glycation means that it’s this combination of sugar with protein that goes in the body it’s very sticky and it starts creating high level of the pattern B among other issues as well fries so they take sugar and they spray it on french fries they deep-fry it same deal doughnuts deep-fried Donuts glycation what’s interesting is so you when you combine protein with sugar or sugar with fat and you bake it or you cook it you create glycation also when you consume high fructose corn syrup or fructose in the form of refined fructose or a tremendous amount of fructose you can increase glycation by 10 times okay because it combines in your body so not only does it have to be you know external it could be internally as well okay and then surgery will increase pattern B because of because LDL is a healer it’s trying to go in there like an ambulance and actually fix thing that’s the purpose it’s trying to help you and what do people do they take a statin they try to limit it it’s not understanding why we need LDL visceral fat will also trigger pattern B as well so anyway those are the things that will increase the real it’s not bad cholesterol it’s the it’s the cholesterol that creates that’s involved in the crime singing the damage alright okay in summary we just want to understand cholesterol LDL what it is and what it’s not and uses an indicator to pull the string to find out why it might be high if it’s higher it could be normal if the triglycerides are normal and the HDL is normal but if there is the problem with these then you have to under ask why do I have a hypothyroid issues am i eating too much sugar am i doing this and the did I just get them with some surgery of trauma alright thanks for watching put your comments below hi guys hey listen I created a pretty amazing evaluation quiz down below that actually analyzes your symptoms to find the cause the root cause of all of your symptoms the most likely cause so take the quiz now and we’ll send you a report

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