LDL Cholesterol and Brain Bleeding

By Dr. David Brownstein, M.D.

For years, we have been fed a narrative that a high level of LDL cholesterol is responsible for causing heart disease, and therefore lowering LDL cholesterol to the lowest level possible is a good thing.

The current recommendations are to reduce that number to less than 70 mg/dL. For a report that appeared in the journal Neurology, researchers studied the association between LDL cholesterol and brain bleeding risk. More than 96,000 subjects who had never had a stroke, heart attack, or cancer were studied.

Editor's Note: Dr. Crandall Reveals the Secret to Normal Cholesterol

Averages of LDL cholesterol were correlated to the development of heart disease. Subjects with LDL cholesterol levels of 70 mg/dL to 99 mg/dL had a similar risk of heart disease as those with levels greater than 100 mg/dL.

Those with LDL levels less than 70 mg/dL had a significantly higher risk for developing heart disease than those with LDL levels of 70 mg/dL to 90 mg/dL.

For those with LDL levels of 50 mg/dL to 69 mg/dL, there was a 65% higher risk, and there was a 169% higher risk for those with LDL levels below 50 mg/dL.

I’ve been saying this for years: Using toxic medications to lower cholesterol levels as much as possible does not make sense. This study found a significantly higher risk of brain bleeds when LDL levels are lowered to the recommended ranges.

Statin drugs help about 1% of people who take them. Now we have new cholesterol-lowering medications that target LDL cholesterol receptors. They poison a crucial enzyme which results in a drastically lower LDL cholesterol.

But the side effects of doing this include serious, life-threatening infections, cancer, and now brain bleeds.

As I wrote in my book, “The Statin Disaster,‒ both statins and LDL-lowering medications are fraught with side effects and have poor efficacy.

If your cholesterol levels are too high, it is best to search for a reason why this is occurring and avoid taking toxic medications that simply fail most who take them.

A Special Message By Cardiologist
Dr. Chauncey Crandall

Dear Reader,

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 71 million American adults (33.5%) have high LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol. Only 1 out of every 3 adults with high cholesterol has the condition under control. Shockingly, less than half don’t even get treatment.

Hi, my name is Dr. Chauncey Crandall and I am a practicing interventional cardiologist, chief of the Cardiovascular Preventive Medicine Program at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic, and editor of the popular Newsmax Health newsletter Heart Health Report.

Let’s face the facts. America has a dangerous cholesterol problem. As a cardiologist, I know that people with high cholesterol have approximately twice the risk of heart disease as people with optimal cholesterol levels.

And contrary to popular belief, taking medication is NOT the only way to lower cholesterol levels. Along with exercise, nutrition is a huge factor in determining whether you will have optimal cholesterol levels.

Unfortunately, the average American diet lacks the key nutrients needed to promote a healthy heart and is guilty of contributing to the heart disease epidemic. In fact, the World Health Organization estimates that low fruit and vegetable intake is responsible for 31% of coronary heart disease and 11% of strokes worldwide.

After decades of treating thousands of patients with unhealthy cholesterol levels, I came to the conclusion that there had to an easier all-natural way to help my patients support their cholesterol levels. After meticulous research, I identified 1 all-natural key nutrient that helps maintain both normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels while promoting optimal LDL/HDL balance and cardiovascular health.

This key nutrient is Red Yeast Rice. Ancient Chinese healers believed red yeast Rice could promote good blood circulation. Today, modern scientists know that it contains monacolins, substances known to promote normal cholesterol levels. These monacolins stop the action of the HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that helps make cholesterol.

Numerous studies published in the Current Therapeutic Research, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and the UCLA School of Medicine have found participants who took red yeast rice on a daily basis found their cholesterol was reduced.

Based on this promising research, I decided to team up with premium nutritional supplement company Medix Select to create an all-natural supplement that contains a strategic blend of cholesterol lowering nutrients — including 2.4 grams of Red Yeast Rice per serving. This exciting new product, called Lesstranol™, contains cholesterol supporting ingredients hand-picked by me to help maintain normal cholesterol and cardiovascular health while promoting LDL/HDL balance and normal triglycerides level.
