Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that does not dissolve in water. It is present in every cell in our body. About 3/4 of the cholesterol in our body is produced by our liver and the balance 1/4 comes from the food we consume.

There are 3 Types of cholesterol and briefly their functions are:

1) 60%-80% are LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) - Carries cholesterol from liver to body cells where it is used in the membranes, to produce protective walls around your cells and create hormones.

2) 15%-20% are HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) - Carries cholesterol from cells back to liver, so the cholesterol can be eliminated in the bile.

3) 20% are Triglycerides - It's a highly concentrated source of energy and hence fuels the body. It mainly comes from the food we eat.

Benefits of Cholesterol
  • Provides a protective barrier for cells for them to function normally so that they are not affected by external harsh environment.
  • Vital for proper functioning of brain and nervous system. Protect brain cells and facilitate transmission of electrical impulses that govern thought, movement and sensation.
  • Used by liver to synthesise bile, which breakdown and digest fats.
  • Used for hormone production.
  • Functions as a powerful anti-oxidant in the body and is protective of free radical damage to tissues.
The cholesterol in our body "loses balance" when we lead a sedentary lifestyle, don't do sufficient exercise or regularly observe wrong dietary habits or suffer from certain diseases like diabetes.

This can cause:

a) higher blood pressure. When our blood loses its fluidity and can't circulate smoothly, our heart needs to pump harder and results in higher blood pressure level.
b) arteriosclerosis. When our blood vessels are clogged with lipids and fats, it will cause our blood vessels to be narrowed and may lead to coronary heart diseases like stroke or heart attacks.

Take a test to determine what is your cholesterol level. Don't just look at the Total cholesterol reading - it's important to analyse the proportion of LDL and HDL.
