Cholesterol is a substance made by the body and also consumed via animal fats. If there is too much cholesterol in the blood, there is a higher chance of getting heart disease. Because high cholesterol in itself does not have any symptoms, many people are unaware that there is a problem. Cholesterol can be lowered through medication, altering the diet, herbal remedies, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yoga, and physical therapy.
