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.

High levels of LDL could precipitate serious health conditions including heart disease. Apart from eating a well balanced diet, the following recommendations could help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels. What to include Include some carbohydrates from whole grain in your meal.
