When we hear the word cholesterol, our minds take a negative turn. It is quite likely due to the many heart attacks that our friends and family have suffered which is a result of high cholesterol. While it is true that it can be harmful to you, it is actually bad cholesterol that is the culprit. However, there's a healthier counterpart known as good cholesterol, which is usually found in desi A2 cow ghee. However, to understand how A2 cow ghee has healthy good cholesterol, we need to understand the true meaning of cholesterol.
All about Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that lines our blood vessels similar to the plaque on our teeth. It is produced by our liver by absorbing all the fat in our diet. It is used by the body to recreate cells, Vitamin D, and essential hormones. Cholesterol doesn’t dissolve in the blood but creates a bond with carriers called lipoproteins, which are carried between cells. When bonded, lipoproteins take shape where with fat on the inner layer and proteins on the outer layer.
Good vs Bad Cholesterol
They are two types of cholesterol consumed by a human being, depending on the diet preference: Low-density Lipoproteins (LDL) or ‘bad cholesterol’ and High-density Lipoproteins (HDL) or ‘good cholesterol’.
Low-density lipoproteins are at the core of heart diseases as high levels of LDL build up in the arteries and block the blood flow to the heart. This buildup is called “plaque.” Saturated foods like cheese, vegetable oils etc. can raise the levels of LDL in the body and lead to heart problems.
High-density lipoproteins carry bad cholesterol from other parts of your body back to the liver which processes it out of your body. It is vital that the body consumes an adequate amount of good cholesterol. The higher the good cholesterol, the lower the levels of bad cholesterol.
