Cholesterol is a very important molecule for regular cellular activity and our body, the liver, produces the required amount independently. So the cholesterol we introduce with food should only be a small part.
This is because the “bad cholesterol”, for LDL science, can accumulate in the arteries and cause serious coronary disease.
There is, however, a “good cholesterol”, or HDL, which has the opposite task instead.
That is, it cleanses the arteries by bringing cholesterol into the liver for disposal.
Triglycerides are instead particles transporting fat to the cells to provide them with energy. However, a high number of triglycerides should be avoided because it can cause coronary diseases.
Aerobic exercise with th bicycle has a very positive impact on our body because it lowers the percent of LDL and triglycerides while increases that of HDL.
In fact, when we do exercise on the pedals, the workload of the heart increases and with it the circulatory activity.
This activity favors the fast disposal of LDL because it stimulates the production of HDL cholesterol, the blood’s sweeper. Triglycerides in the same way are dispose of fast because they are occupied to providing energy to the muscles.
However, to have a real benefit in these terms, you do not just go out on bicycle occasionally. It’s necessary to pedal for at least 30 minutes and go out at least 5 times a week, an excellent method is to go to work on bike.
