Cholesterol facts! Most of us hear “cholesterol” and we think bad, unhealthy and fatty, but there are many people who have correct or even low cholesterol levels, and cholesterol is in fact essential to the body and present in every cell.
Cholesterol plays an important roll in brain activity, and an insufficient amount hinders the action of serotonin, altering our moods. This means that abnormally low levels can lead, or at least be linked to anxiety and depression.The liver produces about 3 quarters of our cholesterol, with the rest coming from our diet, especially meat, meat, dairy and seafood.My best advice for you is to avoid extremes, and to prevent levels that are either too high or too low. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole-grain breads and nuts, limit whole-fat foods, processed flours and sugars and get plenty of exercise.
