The infamous cholesterol is a kind of fat that is mainly formed by the liver and in order to aid the body with its various metabolic functions. In addition it also helps in the production of vital hormones and bile and also to help our bodies absorb vitamin D efficiently

When surplus cholesterol is existent in our blood streams, the extra tends to get deposited in various arteries, for instance the coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are responsible for supplying our heart muscle with oxygen. Contraction of these very arteries is able to cause angina, clots that block other pathways to the heart, chest pain and clots that end up going to the brain, which can later cause a stroke.

As our bodies are able to produce cholesterol on its own, there is no need to indulge in foods that are loaded with cholesterol, as abundance of it simply leads to serious health conditions. Cholesterol levels can be determined by taking a simple blood test. It is a wise habit to keep a check on your cholesterol levels regularly as this will allow you to determine whether or not you need to make changes in your eating habits and your lifestyle.
