Each quarter WellPATH highlights different health and wellness topics such as stress management, women’s health, men’s health, etc. Check back each month for an updated spotlight that provides you with healthy tips along your path to better health.
September 2022: Cholesterol is Not All Bad
Cholesterol gets a bad rap, but the truth is, we need cholesterol for our body to function properly. Cholesterol levels are an important measure of heart health.Yet, this is not your average cholesterol article where we tell you all the components of cholesterol and what is considered high cholesterol. Instead, this month we want to help you understand why cholesterol is so important for your health, debunk some common myths about cholesterol, and provide you with ways to boost your good cholesterol.
