Cholesterol is a lipid (fat) produced by the liver and found in animal food sources. It is vital to our health, but too much of it can cause plaque to build up in the blood vessels.
Cholesterol: do not let your arteries clog up
Despite the fact that blood cholesterol is usually accused of being the enemy of good health, this fatty substance is absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of the human body. Not only is it essential in the production of cell membranes, it also plays a major role in a number of metabolic reactions. The trouble is that too much cholesterol in the blood can have very serious repercussions on the entire system. And with the high-fat diet and generalized sedentariness of the western lifestyle, the conditions are ideal for developing cholesterol problems.
