Cholesterol is a component in the body that is naturally produced. It is produced in the liver and it is something that we are all born with. Cholesterol is something that is needed for cellular development, particularly hormones, and it’s also important in the production of bile acids for digestion. Cholesterol levels are often elevated in people secondary to primarily our diet and often our genetic factors.
