A triglyceride is an ester which is a combination of three fatty acids (unsaturated fat, saturated fat (or both) and glycerol (a simple sugar). Triglycerides are the main components found in natural oils and fats and they are good for your health. However, if you have too many triglycerides in your blood, they can increase the risk of heart disease.
Triglycerides enter into the blood stream through different types of foods, such as dairy products, meats, fats and cooking oils. Triglycerides levels in the body can be measured with a non-fasting blood test, and they should be below 2.3mmol/L.
To avoid thickening of the artery walls and hardening of the arteries due to a high level of triglycerides, you can regularly exercise, cut down saturated fats, cut down on sugary drinks, minimize alcohol consumption and consider heart bioregulator peptide dietary supplements.
