Can you eat dairy products when you have high cholesterol?

Yes, dairy products are important suppliers of protein, vitamins and trace elements. It makes sense, however, to resort to low-fat products and avoid full fat levels, because they contain more cholesterol.

Milk, yoghurt, quark, buttermilk and kefir, as well as sour milk should contain 1.5 percent fat. For cheese, too, it is important to pay attention to the fat content. Under 30 percent fat content are okay. Everything about it (in other words, if it is particularly tasty for some gourmets) is unfortunately unfavorable. Cream, creme fraiche and sour cream are also among the cholesterol bombs.

Of course, as this is not all that fun, these prohibitions do not keep many people affected and at some point start frustrated again, rushing over the treats. However, a much healthier compromise would be: for example, twice a week also the delicious 3.5% yoghurt. With a bit of self-discipline, this can work quite well.

Another tip on vitamins and trace elements

In everyday life it is difficult for many people to ensure adequate intake of these nutrients. We often recommend a special one in this contextHealth juicewhose effectiveness has been scientifically proven. One spoon per day covers all important nutrients (vitamins, also vitamin D for osteoporosis, minerals, etc.), one bottle is sufficient for about 50 days.
