The main plasma lipid transport forms are triglyceride, free fatty acid and cholesteryl ester. Triglycerides are used in the making of some hormones and enzymes the body needs. It is also used in the manufacture of cell membranes in our bodies. Even if we limited our consumption of them, the liver would synthesize a certain amount of fats.And the body’s primary signal that there is still “combustible” sugar in the bloodstream, high insulin levels, will keep those triglycerides locked inside fat cells. Free fatty acid, derived mainly through adipocyte triglycerides, gets transported like a physical complex with plasma albumin. Cholesteryl esters and Triglycerides are transported in the core of plasma lipoproteins. The intestine secretes dietary fat in chylomicrons, lipoproteins that transport triglyceride to tissues for storage.
