Hi, this is Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution, in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about a normal and healthy triglyceride range. So, let's start with understanding a little bit about what triglycerides are. And basically, they're bound together sugar and fat molecules, and the way that triglyceride; well, I guess the thing that makes triglycerides negative in terms of when you assess, and you have high triglycerides is that number one, it's indicating that you have a very high sugar intake in your diet, but then also, those triglycerides get turned into cholesterol in your body, so they're a precursor or a predecessor to high cholesterol levels. So, you really want to keep your triglycerides lower if possible, and if you can staying below one hundred it would be wonderful; although standards show that below one fifty is a fairly safe range. If your triglycerides are over two hundred that's when you really, really need to take some major intervention, but even anywhere between one fifty and two hundred I believe you need to actually do something. A couple things that you can do are you can take your omega 3 fish oils. These help with your triglycerides. And this is an example of fish oil. This is a high DHA fish oil. Other things that you can do are reduce your sugars, and increase your exercise. This is Rachael, in Miami Beach, Florida.
