HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol is the body’s bad cholesterol clean-up crew, actually fusing with the bad type of cholesterol and carrying it to the liver for disposal. HDLs also act as antioxidants, shielding LDLs from the type of damage that promotes plaque.
You’ll enhance your HDL level if you regularly snack on a small handful of walnut halves and regular physical activity & exercise.
Kicking the cigarette habit can raise your HDLs.
