Heart

The health of the cardiovascular system depends on many factors, including cholesterol. Cholesterol metabolism is a complex process that involves dozens of genes, enzymes, so a defect in only one of the metabolic elements can disrupt the whole system.

LDL / Tendency to a high level of bad cholesterol

Lipoproteins of low density ( bad ) cholesterol affect the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.

HDL / Tendency to a low level of good cholesterol

High-density lipoproteins release cholesterol from the blood and reduce the risk of developing atherosclerotic plaques.

Homocysteine / Predisposition to homocysteine accumulation

High level of homocysteine in the blood has a devastating effect on the blood vessels. The increase in its content may be genetically determined, in particular by the mutations in the folate metabolism genes, such as MTHFR and CUBN.

Caffeine / The rate of caffeine withdrawal

Whether or not caffeine is good for you depends on your metabolism. Those who process caffeine slowly have a greater risk of heart attack, while those who process caffeine quickly are safe - and may even protect themselves from certain cardiovascular disorders.
