Cholesterol is actually not dangerous. Cholesterol helps the body produce vitamin D, as well as a number of hormones and acids that function to digest fat. Cholesterol in enough amount help build new cells so that the body can function properly. However, if you eat too much goat meat it could lead an increase in cholesterol levels.

If you worried about the increasing cholesterol levels, you can prevent it by drinking jamu temulawak and sambiloto. The method is easy, namely by blendering 30 grams of temulawak/white turmeric (Curcuma zedoaria) and 7 cloves of garlic. Then boil it with 2 fingers of tamarind, 30 grams leaves of Sambiloto/bitter leaves (Andrographis paniculate), and 3 glasses of water. It will be even better if you boil it in a clay pot. You may drink this jamu 2 times a day, 3/4 glass of jamu each. Drink the jamu regularly to prevent excess cholesterol in the body and maintain your body health.
