Organisms of animal origin are needed by cholesterol throughout life. Cells synthesize cholesterol on their own, providing for their own needs. More than 30 stages of the synthesis of this substance is in each cell. In the final stage lanosterol turns into cholesterol.
The body can synthesize cholesterol from incoming products. People with an average weight (63 kg.) can synthesize more than one kg. of cholesterol per day. This substance is mainly found in cell membranes. The lipid composition of cells of animal origin is ensured the safety of the cell. Full metabolism gives health to the body.
Daily cholesterol intake should be no more than 300 mg a day. Daily cholesterol intake should be no more than 300 mg per day recommendation of the world health organization. Excess cholesterol in the blood and tissues contributes to the emergence of diseases.
Basically the body gets esterified cholesterol. It is poorly absorbed by the body and excreted through the intestines and bladder. The human body is able to compensate for the lack of cholesterol in the body or to remove excess cholesterol from the body painlessly for metabolic processes.
The level of cholesterol lasts up to 8 hours after a meal. Then cholesterol normalized to those indices which are beneficial for the body. However, it is necessary to know, that modern methods of research of indicators of cholesterol in the human body are imperfect. Indicators, made by different methods may differ from each other. Cheaper methods of examination do not mark correct indicators. For example, what cells were transferred molecules of a substance in the blood plasma.
Cholesterol is utilized and recycled in the systems and organs. It is secreted by the liver cells in the form of a specially processed and utilized in the gastrointestinal tract in the intestine. The full composition of bile provides a complete and satisfactory digestion of food that enters the gastrointestinal tract.
Bad composition of bile can cause the formation of solid concretions in the gallbladder, hamper the separation of bile and disrupt digestion. Half of the cholesterol re-absorbed in the small intestine.
