Cholesterol is a small steroid molecule. It is one of the essential components of the human body. An earlier study has revealed that 100g of cholesterol is present in a normal human body. It is one of the key ingredients for the synthesis of the following hormones, progesterone, estrogen, mineralocorticoids (e.g., aldosterone).etc. The synthesis of bile acids is one of the most important roles of cholesterol. It is mainly synthesized in the liver, it synthesis about 1500-2000 mg of cholesterol everyday. The concentration of cholesterol that can be found in the blood is calculated in milligrams per deciliter (mg/ml) which means it is equal to parts per 100,000

The synthesis of cholesterol and the use of cholesterol in the human body should be regulated properly so that there is no over accumulation and uncharacteristic deposition in the body.
