Two types

Cholesterol is described as being a waxy material located in all your cells. It has a myriad of useful duties, including building cell growth. When we go to the doctors for bloodwork, they measure two separate kinds of cholesterol. These are high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL).

Each type of cholesterol is great to have in your body to a specific amount. Yet, when LDLs accumulate, they are able to restrict your blood vessels’ passageways. This can cause a stroke or a heart attack. For this reason, people refer to LDLs as the bad cholesterol.

HDLs are not as threatening because they carry a large amount of cholesterol in your blood to the liver. It is here where it gets broken down and expelled from your body.

If there are too many LDLs in your body, you should cut back on processed and red meats. Moreover, participating in weight loss exercises can help keep levels down.
