By now we all know that there is good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL), but what are the benefits of cholesterol in general? Cholesterol plays a key role in various bodily functions and locations such as: cell membranes, vitamin D, steroid hormones, and bile acids.
Cholesterol plays an important role in making sure that the cell membrane is sturdy and not easily penetrated by other molecules. It is also used inside the cells to help produce energy and proteins.
Vitamin D can be obtained by eating food like eggs and meat, but only in small amounts. Our main source of vitamin D is the sun. Our bodies produce vitamin D in the skin after absorbing ultraviolet B rays, and cholesterol is vital in the process of converting these rays into vitamin B.
Testosterone in men, estrogen and progesterone in women, cortisol and aldosterone are all steroid hormones that use cholesterol as their building basic blocks. These all play vital roles in our everyday bodily functions.
Bile acids help with the digestive process, as they break down fat molecules. They are produced in the liver, with cholesterol playing a vital role.
Although cholesterol is needed in the body, it should be in small amounts. High cholesterol is still as bad as ever.
