It balances the hormonal level as well as stimulus the biological cycle. But increased cholesterol may deposit to your arteries. Regarding higher level, it may cause a stroke or heart attack while it may be fatal.

According to American heart association and research center, 300 mg of cholesterol is well and good for a normal human being. But if it exceeds for a longer period the outcome will not be pleasant.
