The term cholesterol is coined from the Ancient Greek ‘chole’ (bile) and stereos (solid) followed by the chemical suffix – ol for an alcohol, which is an organic molecule. Cholesterol is a high-molecular-weight alcohol known as ‘sterol’ found in every cell of our body. Cholesterol and its derivatives are important constituents of cell membranes and precursors of other steroid compounds, but high concentrations in the blood are thought to promote atherosclerosis.
In simple terms, cholesterol is a soft, waxy material that is present with the fats and lipids in the bloodstream and the cells. Cholesterol has many important functions. It is responsible for making the cell membranes. It also produces hormones that are essential for the human body. However, too much of cholesterol in one’s body is harmful. High cholesterol may cause heart diseases and heart attacks. It may also lead to erectile dysfunction in men.
Most people above the age of 35 years suffer from raised blood lipids. Almost everyone has clogging arteries, chromium, and zinc deficiencies, which can also lead to diabetes. If you have a liver that does not function optimally, a high body fat percentage, low levels of essential nutrients, decaying teeth, bone degeneration, it isn’t something that has happened today that has caused your health to suddenly deteriorate. It is the result of years of unhealthy eating, over work, poor stress management, destructive habits like tobacco and alcohol and poor nutrient intake. Most people suffering from heart disease show a high heart risk ratio. That is the cholesterol/HDL ratio. This ratio does not only increase the coronary risk but also leads to insulin resistance and type II diabetes and even depresses the immune system.
