Cholesterol is a type of lipid (fat) secreted by the liver and found in some foods. To be healthy, you need cholesterol because it performs many functions that are essential for our body to function properly.

  • Almost 90% of the cholesterol in our body is devoted to the membranes of your cells.
  • It acts as a constituent of certain sex (testosterone) or adrenal (cortisone) hormones.
  • It controls the development of certain cells in the fetus.
  • It promotes the formation of synapses in your brain.
  • It is an ingredient in bile, a liquid that mixes lipids with water to digest dietary fat.
  • It is the precursor of vitamin D.

Cholesterol is transported in the blood by “lipoproteins” or LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein), low density proteins, and HDL (High Density Lipoprotein), high density lipoproteins. "Total cholesterol" includes HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, which are called good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL).

Bad cholesterol is deposited in the form of fatty deposits in the blood. Ultimately, cholesterol narrows the blood vessels, preventing the blood from circulating properly and partially obstructing the tissues. A clot can then form and completely block an artery causing serious health problems. Excess cholesterol is harmful to health and can lead in the long term to myocardial infarction, stroke or arteritis of the lower limbs.
Pointing out our dietary differences, our cholesterol level reflects our diet, often too rich in fat.
