Take a complicated subject you know more about than most people, and explain it to a friend who knows nothing about it at all.

I told my friend I will explain to her about CHOLESTEROL. It is a white waxy substance found naturally in our body.Its function is to keep every cell wall in our body in good working order.

It is made in the liver and a small amount comes from the food we eat.

Cholesterol can be a problem when the level in our blood is too high, if we have more cholesterol than our body needs, we will have fatty deposits in our arteries, this can affect our heart health.

There are two kinds of Cholesterol; HDL and LDL

HDL the ‘High-density lipoprotein takes cholesterol away from from the arteries to the liver to be eliminated. HDL therefore is good for the heart.

Bad Cholesterol known as LDL i.e Low Density lipoprotein in the blood can build up on the walls of our blood vessels,  which makes the arteries too  narrow which increases the risk of Heart Disease.

It’s therefore important to keep our heart healthy, to do  so we must keep our LDL low and HDL high.
