Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in our blood. Cholesterol is required by our body to manufacture healthy cells but a high amount of cholesterol may increase your risk of heart disease.
High cholesterol levels, especially of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) can cause fatty deposits to develop in your blood vessels making it difficult for blood to flow around the body.
High cholesterol may be inherited and may also be due to lifestyle choices such as eating excessive fatty food. Natural ways to reduce cholesterol include a healthy diet, taking some exercise and perhaps taking natural remedies to lower cholesterol all of which should help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
