What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is soft, waxy substance found in all parts of the body. This includes the nervous system, skin, muscle, liver, intestines, and heart. It is made by the body and also obtained from animal products in the diet. Cholesterol is manufactured in the liver for normal body functions, including the production of hormones, cell membranes, digestive juices and vitamin D. It is transported in the blood used by all parts of the body. In foods, cholesterol is found in eggs, dairy products, meat, and poultry. Foods of plant origin (vegetables, fruits, grains, cereals, nuts, and seeds) contain no cholesterol.

Your body needs a constant supply of oxygen to function. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, lungs and blood vessels, and the blood that circulates through them. Your heart and circulatory system make up your cardiovascular system and work in tandem with the respiratory and other systems. Your heart works as a pump that pushes blood to the organs, tissues, and cells of your body. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to every cell and removes the carbon dioxide and waste products made by those cells. The circulatory system works with the respiratory lungs to the rest of the body, and delivering carbon dioxide from the body to the lungs for expulsion. The respiratory system is the system that takes in air, separates out the oxygen that you need to live, and gets rid of the carbon dioxide that is left. Getting plenty of exercise, eating a nutritious diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting regular medical check-ups are the best ways to help keep the heart healthy and avoid long-term problems.
