Guest Report - Ways To Increase "Good" Cholesterol

 

Cholesterol numbers can indicate your risk for heart disease and stroke, and a low HDL is certainly a contributing factor.  HDL or high density lipoprotein is a “good” type of cholesterol with heart-protective benefits.  The higher your HDL, the better.   Lifestyle changes can have a great impact on improving your HDL.  Focus on the things you can change, like:

  • Quit smoking.  Quitting can increase your HDL by up to 10 percent, in addition to improving your overall heart and lung health.
  • Get active and stay active.  Increasing exercise can improve your HDL, help you lose weight, and lower your bad cholesterol too.
  • Choose the right fats.  Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats tend to improve HDL's anti-inflammatory abilities. Nuts, fish and other foods containing omega-3 fatty acids are good choices for improving your LDL to HDL cholesterol ratio.
  • Increase your fiber intake. Soluble fiber in foods like oatmeal, bran, and beans will act like a broom, sweeping out the bad cholesterol and raising your HDL.

Lifestyle changes can improve your HDL.  Even small changes can get you to “Feel Better and Live Longer!”.
