About 40 million Brazilians have high cholesterol, but only 200,000 are in treatment. Cholesterol is one of the main risk factors for diseases of the cardiovascular system. The others are smoking, diabetes, hypertension and sedentary lifestyle. Nowadays, cholesterol is responsible for almost 8% of deaths caused by noncommunicable diseases, which represents about 4.5 million people across the country.

Cholesterol is a type of fat produced by the liver. He is also contained in certain foods such as eggs, meat and dairy products. When the person eats these foods, the rate of cholesterol in your blood increases. Cholesterol is transported by lipoproteins in the blood. The portion of the LDL (low density lipoprotein) transports cholesterol to the body. The portion of HDL (high density lipoprotein) removes cholesterol from the bloodstream.
