Cholesterol – What it is and Why You Can’t Live Without it

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found among fats in the body. Despite bad publicity, cholesterol is necessary. It’s part of every cellular membrane in the body; we have over 100 trillion cells, and cholesterol is an integral part of that. It’s a large percentage of our brain tissue.

Cholesterol is used to synthesize our steroid hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. We also use cholesterol as a precursor to our stress hormones, such as cortisone, which raises the heart rate and make the muscles tense up. Cholesterol is also the precursor to vitamin D.
