Cholesterol is a sterol (a combination steroid and alcohol) and a lipid found in the cell membranes of all body tissues and transported in the blood plasma of all animals.Cholesterol is present in higher concentrations in tissues which either produce more or have more densely-packed membranes, like the liver, spinal cord and brain.Cholesterol plays a central role in many biochemical processes, but is best known for the association of cardiovascular diseases with various lipoprotein cholesterol transport patterns and high levels of cholesterol in the blood.
Cholesterol is required to build and maintain cell membranes; it makes the membrane's fluidity and degree of viscosity. Cholesterol also aids in the manufacture of bile and is also important for the metabolism of fat soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E and K. It is the major precursor for the synthesis of vitamin D, ofthe various steroid hormones, including cortisol and aldosterone in the adrenal glands, and of the sex hormones progesterone, oestrogen, and testosterone. Further recent researches show that cholesterol has an important role for the brain synapses as well as in the immune system, including protecting against cancer.

Concerns of high cholesterol:
An excess of cholesterol can build up in the bloodstream and accumulate on the walls of arteries. This build up is what can lead to clogged arteries and eventually to heart attacks and strokes. In fact excess cholesterol increases the risk of getting heart diseases and strokes.
Cholesterol can be "bad" and "good". The "bad" cholesterol or Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) can clog your arteries while studies show that "good" cholesterol or High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) can actually reduce your risk of heart disease. That's why it's essential for you to know the facts about fats, foods and other means which can reduce bad cholesterol in your blood.
