What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a natural compound in the sterol compound class. It can be found in the vast majority of living organisms. It is a natural precursor to steroids in animals and phytosterols in plants. It is mainly consumed from dietary sources containing animal fats, milk, etc.
Cholesterol has gained a bad reputation as it is one of the main reasons for atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular issues. However, our bodies must maintain healthy levels of it as it is a starting metabolite for synthesizing other sterols.
As the starting material for many biologically important molecules, Cholesterol, due to similarities with other natural steroids, has been used in medicinal chemistry to develop new and promising drug candidates for various diseases like
- anti-obesity and weight regulating
- to reduce gallstones
- and more.
Cholesterol is also used as an analytical standard to identify metabolites in various biological studies.
