Cholesterol is type of fat found in the body and in certain foods. You need to know that it represents a crucial substance in the blood and in every cell of the body, which the body uses it to make hormones and vitamin D. In fact, it is one of the building blocks of the cell membranes. However, larger amounts of cholesterol in the body can cause damage, and that condition is known as Hypercholesterolemia.
Moreover, its excessive levels in the blood can elevate the risk of developing a heart disease and experiencing a stroke thanks to the plaque accumulation on the arterial walls. These plaques are responsible for narrowing the arteries and reducing the blood flow. So, if a blood clot forms and blocks the artery to the heart, a heart attack occurs. On the other hand, if an embolism blocks an artery to or in the brain, a stroke occurs.
There is an interesting fact that people in Asia, specifically the Chinese, suffer less from strokes and heart diseases than the people in America where these are the most common conditions. Namely, the Chinese people have a natural way of reducing the cholesterol in the blood, and in that way improving the cardiovascular system.
