Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty substance which is naturally found in our blood and in most of our cells. A large proportion is made ‘in-house’ in our livers, but we also consume it through our diet. It’s not inherently “bad.” In fact, it is a vitally important substance in our body needed for many things including building cells, making hormones and it is vital to the function of our nervous system. Interestingly, the brain has the highest concentration of cholesterol levels in our body. Our team unpacks the difference between HDL (good cholesterol) and LDL (bad cholesterol). We also give valuable advice on dietary recommendations, lifestyle factors and herbal medicines to help manage cholesterol levels in your body.
