Cholesterol has often been termed as the enemy, since high levels of cholesterol are often the culprit behind a heart attack or stroke. But the truth if the matter is, that our body needs cholesterol to function properly and carry out a number of important functions. Cholesterol is present naturally in the body in two types, namely LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins). It is an essential fat which provides stability to every cell in the body.
