Cholesterol is an important element in the bile that is able to digest fat, and in all membranes, especially the cells in the brain and nerve cells. When excess, cholesterol can cause damage.

Cholesterol is derived from fat, which is a substance useful for the functioning of the body. Which consists of fat ingested saturated fat and unsaturated fat.

Fat with carbohydrates in the body will be processed into a compound called acetyl coenzyme-A. From these compounds form several important substances, such as fatty acids, triglycerides, and cholesterol fosfolpid.

Fat in the blood consists of several types, namely cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and free fatty acids. The first three types bind to each other is called the lipid-protein or lipoprotein. Lipoprotein is divided into five sections, namely chylomicrons, very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), and high-density lipoprotein (HDL).

Of the five types it is important to know is LDL, which is often called bad cholesterol because its effects are arterogenik (easily attached to the walls of blood vessels), causing accumulation of fat. While HDL is good cholesterol that has the effect antiarterogenik.

A number of medicinal plants are proven to lower cholesterol and triglyceride, avocado helps the process of plaque stabilization that has been formed, so not easily broken. Avocados contain folic acid, pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin B1, B6, vitamin C and E, phosphorus, iron, potassium, magnesium, and glutathione. Avocados are also rich in fiber and monounsaturated fatty acids. The content is able to reduce levels of triglycerides and high blood cholesterol.
