Before we take a deeper look at the subject it is important for everyone to know – cholesterol is vital for our body. Our body uses cholesterol to make cell tissues protect nerves and make some hormones. But what is Cholesterol This waxy substance is a type of lipid just as fats are. However it is very important to know that - unlike fat you can’t burn cholesterol with exercises and body can’t use it as a source of energy. Our liver produces the Cholesterol needed by our body. In addition most of the animal products we consume including meat chicken fish eggs and high-fat dairy products – are rich sources of cholesterol. Body transports fats and cholesterol in the bloodstream by coating them with a water- soluble bubble of protein – called ‘lipo-protein’. Low-density lipoproteins LDL carry cholesterol to tissues. High LDL levels are linked to higher risks of heart disease and are considered ‘bad’.

High-density lipoproteins HDLs carry excess cholesterol back to the liver and are considered ‘good’. Liver processes and excretes the cholesterol. What are the ideal Cholesterol levels A lipid-profile test would reveal the quantity of different types of cholesterols in our body. Some rough guidelines: The total cholesterol reading should be approximately equal to the sum of LDL HDL and other lipoproteins. Ideally – for every 1 mg of HDL the total cholesterol should be under 3.5 mg Aim for a total cholesterol level of under 200 mg/ dl. Y ounger people should aim for even lower levels 150 to 180. Lower the LDL the better. Prevent LDL to cross 130 mg/ dl Higher the HDL the better. Levels of 60 and higher reduce the risks of heart disease For more information visit the Healnt Blog.
