Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found throughout the body and in every cell. It is produced naturally by the liver and helps to carry fat to different parts of the body that need it for energy and repairs.
Foods derived from plants, like vegetables, do not contain any dietarycholesterol. Your liver produces all the cholesterol required by your body. However, any excess dietary cholesterol or saturated fats which are turned into cholesterol by the liver can cause an increase in serum cholesterol.
