What exactly is cholesterol? It is a waxy substance found naturally in our body cells and if found in excess, it can make great changes in your health condition.
It exists in two forms namely Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) and High Density Lipoproteins (HDL). Of this, LDL is the bad cholesterol since it is the protein substance released from the liver and retained in the arteries in large amounts causing serious problems like heart attack and stroke. HDL is the good fatty substance, which is thrown out from the arteries and absorbed by the liver again, thus reducing any potential risk to the body.
