Cholesterol is referred to as ‘good’ (LDL cholesterol) or ‘bad’ (HDL cholesterol). It is an important structural compound for the cell membrane and cell function. It is necessary for many of our body functions such as vitamin D and calcium metabolism, sex hormones, lipoproteins, cortisol-related hormones synthesis, and brain support, for example. The beneficial properties of LDL cholesterol are sometimes overlooked due to the negative impact HDL cholesterol has on the risk of cardiovascular disease.
