The story of Cholesterol
Once upon a time, there is one taxi named LDL who loves to travel in theblood stream. Its passenger is cholesterol and he likes to go to places where others need him. One day, the testes called him because they are running out of testosterone. Since they need the cholesterol as the building blocks of testosterone, LDL taxi needs to travel from the liver through the blood stream until it reaches the destination. However, along the way, LDL saw there were few accidents occur and damage the blood cells. The toxins had caused inflammation in the blood stream and these affect the blood vessels terribly. Since LDL had been carrying cholesterol all the way, they decided to use the cholesterol to patch up the damaged blood vessels to prevent further injury. As the cholesterol being used up for the blood vessels, no cholesterol is left for the production of testosterone. As a result, the production of hormone testosterone lower and affect the body to repair.
Time goes by and the damaged blood vessels healed. Then, another taxi named HDL travels along the blood stream and pick up the cholesterol to bring it back to the liver to be excreted out. However, since the underlying causes of inflammation has not resolved, the blood vessels are still damaged. At one point of time, too much of cholesterol patched up the damaged area, making the vessels narrow.
Cholesterol plays an important role in brain health and memory formation, and is indispensable for the building of cells and the production of stress and sex hormones, as well as vitamin D. (When sunlight strikes your bare skin, the cholesterol in your skin is converted into vitamin D.)
In conclusion, cholesterol does not cause blood vessel disease, it is actually the “INFLAMMATION” that cause the problem. The root cause is “INFLAMMATION”!
