Heart attack and strokes are caused by blockages in main arteries that supply blood to the heart and brain and are associated with many risk factors, including high cholesterol. Lipitor is a leading and widely popular medication taken by patients wishing to lower their blood cholesterol levels. Used in conjunction with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, the drug is used to combat high cholesterol levels which could lead to serious heart disease and helps to prolong life expectancy.
Lipitor is also known as Atorvastatin and works by reducing the amount of fatty substances in the body. It does this by preventing the production of enzymes that make cholesterol in the liver. This means that the amount of cholesterol produced is greatly reduced and overall blood cholesterol levels are lowered. Lipitor also increases the body’s production of good cholesterol which helps stimulate the flow of blood to the heart, brain, and other vital organs.
Who can take Lipitor?
Patients who take Lipitor are advised to make specific changes to their overall lifestyle in order to achieve the full potential of the drug. Food choices should be reviewed to include organic foods and eliminate processed, fatty foods. Tobacco and alcohol should also be avoided and patients are encouraged to participate in regular exercise and to maintain fitness levels where possible.
The benefits of taking Lipitor are immense and many patients find that they are able to live full and healthy lives as a direct result of taking the medicine. A person with high cholesterol may find they are unable to participate in the same activities as their peers. Other risk factors, such as being obese or overweight, having high blood pressure, and diabetes also increase the chances of developing heart disease. Lipitor, as a cholesterol lowering drug, helps to ensure that the risks are considerably lower and this can result in a higher quality of life.
