Maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels is important to the overall health of the cardiovascular system.Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like, waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in all of the body's cells. It is an important part of a healthy body, because it is used for producing cell membranes and hormones in addition to other necessary bodily functions. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, though. It has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers called lipoproteins, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is known as 'bad' cholesterol, while HDL is known as “good” cholesterol.The body produces LDL cholesterol naturally, but many people inherit genes from their family that cause their body to create excess amounts of cholesterol. Eating saturated fats, trans fats and dietary cholesterol can also increase the overall amount of cholesterol in the blood. High cholesterol levels can be dangerous and is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol is essential to supporting your heart health.
