Cholesterol is a naturally substance required by our body; but only in small amounts. Because the liver makes between 800 to 1,000 milligrams of cholesterol per day. So we don’t need to overload our system with cholesterol; even though they promote cholesterol like crazy on tv especially with cereal ads.
Cholesterol is necessary in order to produce many hormones such as vitmains D and bile acids; which help to digest fat. Which is essential since fat is our a source of fuel.
Cons of TOO much Cholesterol:
Excessive amounts of Cholesterol promoted atherosclerosis: which is known for causing fat and cholesterol to be deposited throughout the walls of the body.
Once this process starts to help, it eventually leads to cardiovascular disease.
So with that being said; we must be aware of our intake of cholesterol. Don’t consume too much and if you don’t consume any today; it won’t be too big of a deal because your liver produces enough for you.
