BENEFITS OF CHOLESTEROL





Cholesterol is a type of sterol which is usually found in the body tissues. It s one of the most important compound required by the body thats why liver makes a good amount of it each day. According to reports of American Heart Association, liver makes around 1000mg cholesterol on a daily basis. Despite the fact that it s quite important to the body, cholesterol can put heart at risk if the amount is increased even a bit more than the natural requirement. 

Our liver packs cholesterol into lipoproteins that are a blend of lipid fats and proteins. The lipoproteins are used for transportation of cholesterol through the bloodstream to various cells. Not only cholesterol, lipoproteins also carry around fat soluble vitamins, other lipids including triglycerides and many other substances through the bloodstreams to the tissues that require these substances. 

Cholesterol is responsible for the formation and maintenance of cell walls and structures. It is also used by nerve cell for insulation as well as needed by the cells to assist them in adjusting as per the changes in the temperature. Moreover, it is an integral compound that s used for synthesizing plenty of critical hormones, specifically the sex hormones, progesterone, testosterone and estrogen. 

Cholesterol is also essentially required by the liver to complete the formation of bile juice which is crucial for the digestion of fats. The daily dose of vitamin D is essential for the body and body can t get vitamin D in the absence of cholesterol. While we stand in the sun, our body converts cholesterol into vitamin D.
