Cholesterol Lowering Medications
Cholesterol is an organic substance, natural polycyclic lipophilic alcohol contained in the cell membranes of all living organisms, with the exception of plants, fungi and non-nuclear organisms (prokaryotes).
It does not dissolve in water, fats, and organic dissolvents. Nearly eighty percent of the compound is made by the organism itself in the organs such as liver, intestines, kidneys, and others. The last twenty percent comes from consumed food.
