What is CHOLESTEROL?


Cholesterol nowadays become a celebrity... of sickness. It shoot not only to elderly but also youngster to whom love eating processed and junk food. Should we worry about that? Yes, we are.

Cholesterol is a substance our liver can produce. It's needed to build vitamin D, cell walls, hormones and help us to digest fat. Cholesterol is a type of lipid, together with protein (become lipoprotein) cholesterol is traveling to every parts of our body through bloodstream.

There is 2 type of cholesterol :
  • High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), well known as good cholesterol
  • Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), known as bad cholesterol. When LDL is high it will hardening arteries and decrease blood flow, which put the risk of having heart attack or having stroke.
What cause high in LDL?
How to control LDL?
Keep in mind on your eating habit, that we serve our body not our tongue.
