The term cholesterol has been derived from the Ancient Greek ‘chole’ (bile) and stereos (solid). It is a high-molecular-weight alcohol known as ‘sterol’ that is found in every cell of our body. Cholesterol and its derivatives constitute the most important part of cell membranes and precursors of other steroid elements, but if there are high concentrations in the blood then it is 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 are one of those to suffer from an abnormal liver, an increased body fat percentage, decreased levels of essential nutrients, decaying teeth, bone degradation, isn’t something that has happened today that has lead to sudden deterioration of your health. It is the result of years of unhealthy eating, overwork, 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.
