In this video, we’re going to talk about dealing with high cholesterol and LDL on keto.

Two organs in your body make cholesterol—your liver and your intestines. Bile salts control the majority of your cholesterol.

Excess cholesterol is eliminated through various pathways that involve bile. What this means is that bile gets rid of cholesterol, and cholesterol levels are dependent on bile.

Your intestines have receptors called bile acids receptors (BAR). BARs suppress cholesterol.

There’s a condition called essential hypercholesterolemia. This is when you have an excess amount of cholesterol in your bloodstream. “Essential” means that they don’t know what causes it. This includes familial hypercholesterolemia—this means it’s genetic.

A high-fat diet can cause hypercholesterolemia. Hypothyroidism, kidney damage, and bile deficiency can also cause this problem.

What causes a deficiency in bile? Liver damage is the primary factor. Fatty liver, liver inflammation (hepatitis), liver fibrosis, and cirrhosis can all cause a deficiency in bile. Anything that decreases liver function decreases bile production.

Intestinal damage can cause a bile deficiency. Numerous conditions and medications—including antibiotics—can contribute to poor intestinal health. In turn, this will increase your cholesterol.

Taking purified bile salts and probiotics can help improve your overall bile.
