Reduce your risk of dying from heart disease.
LDL cholesterol is the vehicle by which cholesterol is deposited into your arteries, leading to atherosclerosis (cholesterol deposits). When you have high levels of cholesterol in your arteries, you block blood flow through them.
If you have atherosclerosis in your coronary artery (the artery providing oxygenated blood to your heart), you risk blood flow to your heart being compromised and you may have a heart attack.
Studies show that by eating healthily and reducing LDL cholesterol levels, you can actually reverse atherosclerosis and therefore reverse heart disease!
