    The correct answer is A. Effectively, aldosterone is synthesized from cholesterol.


    Aldosterone is a steroid hormone from the mineralocorticoid family, synthesized in the glomerular area of the adrenal cortex of the adrenal gland. It acts in the conservation of sodium, in the secretion of potassium and in the increase of blood pressure. Its secretion is decreased in Addison's disease and increased in Conn's syndrome. Aldosterone, as well as all steroid hormones, is synthesized from cholesterol.
