Are you concerned about high cholesterol? Do you know your number? Next week the Flora pro.activ Cholesterol Challenge is travelling to Mayo to offer free cholesterol checks and expert advice on diet and lifestyle.
The Flora pro.activ nurses will carry out the cholesterol checks, which take just five minutes of your time and will provide you with expert nutrition advice based on your results.
Flora pro.activ has teamed up with SuperValu and The Mooney Show on RTE Radio 1 to carry out the Cholesterol Challenge, which comes to SuperValu, Claremorris, on Saturday September 24. A full schedule of testing dates, venues and live Derek Mooney shows are available at www.floraproactivcholesterolchallenge.ie
It is widely recognised that high cholesterol levels can cause the arteries to narrow and therefore it is important to maintain healthy cholesterol levels to help keep your heart healthy. There are no obvious symptoms of high cholesterol but the good news is that, once detected, some of the factors that effect cholesterol levels can be changed through diet and exercise.
In addition to the testing schedule offered in conjunction with The Mooney Show and SuperValu, Flora pro.activ are also offering groups and organisations with 30 or more members the opportunity to stage a Flora pro.activ nutrition seminar in their local area. The nutrition seminars will combine cholesterol testing with a wider nutritional workshop. Full details and an application form can be found at www.floraproactivcholesterolchallenge.ie/Spreadtheword
