Excessive production of cholesterol is a natural reaction of the organism to water scarcity. Cholesterol is a natural binder that fills the gaps in the cell membrane causing it to become impermeable to water. It is a natural protection of cells against dehydration. At the time of dehydration, increased production of cholesterol is to ensure cells survive and protect them from water loss. With the regular increase in the daily drinking of water, when the cells are completely hydrated, the need to block cholesterol from blocking the water flow through the cell membrane is reduced, and thus its production is reduced.
