Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance, which is found in all cells of the body. It is produced in the liver, but can also be found in some foods. Cholesterol is needed for the body to work properly as it is useful in the production of hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids. Cholesterol is carried in the blood by proteins, by which proteins and cholesterol are combined and called lipoproteins. Two much cholesterol causes gradually buildup of fatty deposits in the blood vessels, leading to problems for blood flow, which could result in heart attack or stroke. There are two types of lipoproteins. Low density lipoprotein is so called bad cholesterol as it delivers cholesterol to the body. High density lipoprotein is good cholesterol as it removes cholesterol from the bloodstream.
