People argued but no conclusion was drawn. 6 shrimps (113g) contain 180 mg cholesterol, it's 60% of a person's daily limit. That's why people used to say shrimp isn't a good food for people with high cholesterol or high blood pressure. However, there's no saturated fat or trans fat in shrimps, and shrimps contain omega-3 and omega-6, and beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and brassicasterol, which function as anti-inflammatory molecules which help decrease LDL or bad cholesterol. So it's challenging to say shrimps is the enemy to high cholesterol. When you take shrimps, what you can do is to take them with fresh vegetables, so you don't overtake cholesterol for the day, but get the good substances.
