The heart is one of the most important human organs. Any damage to it can lead to negative consequences. The most common cause of heart problems is high cholesterol levels. There are many factors that affect cholesterol in the body. Recently, experts have been able to figure out how dehydration is related to this.
Distinguish between "bad" and "good" cholesterol. The first one just becomes the cause of blockage of the arteries, which ultimately leads to diseases of the cardiovascular system. Mostly fatty foods increase its level. Also, as a result of medical research, it was found that dehydration is directly associated with an increase in the level of bad cholesterol.
To avoid this, it is necessary to provide the body with a sufficient amount of drinking water. It should be given the highest priority in daily life. Otherwise, the lack of water will lead to the deposition of fatty plaques in the blood vessels, which will disrupt the flow of blood through them, according to Times Now.
To maintain heart health, experts also recommend getting good sleep every night and eating a balanced diet. It is necessary to consume nutrients and avoid excessive amounts of sugar. In general, you need to maintain a healthy weight. In addition, do not forget about moderate physical activity. Its absence can lead to an increased risk of stroke and obesity.

Some chefs add it to rice, pasta, or stir-fries. Researchers recently found that it lowers the level of "bad" cholesterol in the body.
