The Fat Cycle (Lipid Transport)
Please visit this site for an explanation of the above diagram
"This extremely complex lipoprotein system ensures that fats are digested, absorbed into our body and transported to all cells to supply them with the needed fats. It also ensures that excess fats don't build up in our blood." Udo Erasmus PhD
In the diagram above we see the creation and disposition of fats in your body. Your body creates a PACKET to carry any fat it moves through your blood stream.
Chylomicrons are used by our intestines to carry fats extracted from our fatty foods from the intestines to the liver and fatty tissues of your body. The chylomicrons like all fats which travel in the blood stream are wrapped in a covering of lipoproteins. Some of the chylomicrons are shipped to the liver where the liver creates various packets of fat for transport to your bodies tissues and other purposes.
Your liver creates VLDL directly and LDL and HDL indirectly, among other fats and fat components. The LDL Packet contains fats your body tissues require, these fats travel in your blood stream to your bodies tissues. If you do not assure enough fat soluble antioxidants your LDL may oxidize. Oxidized LDL CANNOT be delivered to your cells and will be delivered to tissues that are not intended to receive LDL or it will circulate in your blood stream until consumed by your immune system.. Much of your oxidized LDL may find its way into your artery wall. This is the beginning of atherosclerosis and most CVD.
The VLDL is used to build LDL and feed the tissues. The HDL Packet is used to collect excess cholesterol and other fats for transport back to the liver.
“Lipid transport and delivery systems existed in the earliest animals including insects. Our lipoprotein systems are not that dissimilar [ref 1].” Note this is a HIGHLY recommended article you should READ to understand lipid transport
"The large chylomicron molecules and VLDL are the main carriers of triglyceride in our blood compared to the IDL, LDL and HDL molecules carrying predominantly cholesterol ester. Remember from my previous blog on “fats” that triglyceride molecules consist of one glycerol molecule attached by an ester bond to 3 fatty acid molecules. Triglycerides form the basis of our energy stores of fatty acids and may provide fuel for beta-oxidation to generate ATP (energy)." A Crash Course in Understanding Lipoprotein Metabolism
"Importantly the LDL molecule does not have apoE or
apoC and is therefore not cleared from the blood by the liver. The consequence
of the long ½ life of LDL in the plasma is the LDL is susceptible to oxidative
modification of the phospholipid monolayer containing polyunsaturated fatty

A Crash Course in Understanding Lipoprotein Metabolism , Note it is the oxidation of the LDL packet that often starts CVD
"HDL is synthesized by the liver cells (and other gastro intestinal cells) and is a unique lipoprotein containing one integral transmembrane apoA apoprotein. HDL when synthesized has very little triglyceride or free cholesterol and is essentially “empty” as its job is to acquire cholesterol from the periphery to transport back to the liver." A Crash Course in Understanding Lipoprotein Metabolism
"So in deficient HDL (low HDL) states there is less of this carrier molecule to unload the cells and arterial wall of cholesterol content hence an independent risk for vascular disease. Like LDL you can equally understand the MISNOMER of HDL being “good cholesterol” as low levels potentiate vascular disease whilst high HDL tends to protect against atherosclerosis BUT it is NOT cholesterol that is implicated; it is the carrier molecule HDL." A Crash Course in Understanding Lipoprotein Metabolism
In the diagram above we see the HDL 3 packet exchanging triglyceride fats, including cholesterol, with LDL packets. Excess triglyceride fats are eventually passed to the HDL 2 packet and into the liver for disposition.
This system becomes very inefficient if your triglycerides get too high. Your triglycerides get high when you eat SUGAR and simple carbs which are quickly converted to SUGAR. When our body was designed there was no refined sugar, simple carbs, HFCS and all the other man made crap we eat today. Take the crap away and your body becomes a lean mean machine and will burn its fat fuel and glucose fuel with precision efficiency and cleanness.
This is a highly simplified description of a vastly more complicated process. In actuality there are MANY more players and plays in the fat game. But if you just understand this simplified process you can see this is a GOOD DESIGN. Your body contains NO BAD Mechanisms or components.
There is no such thing as the bad LDL; OXIDIZED LDL is bad; ANY body part oxidized is bad. Feed your body right and do some exercise and you will likely NEVER have CVD problems.
Man and pre-man has lived with this exact same circulatory and fat system for many tens of millions of years with NO CVD problems. Our problem today is mostly that we eat TOO MUCH CRAP and have "medical care" who does not understand that eating crap is the root of MOST of our "medical problems".
