Good Cholesterol : What is HDL?


HDL or High Density Lipoprotein: To go from point A to point B you need transport. Same theory applies for the bloodstream, for good cholesterol to be transported you need a carrier, that’s HDL. 


HDL also acts like a filter : It reduces and reuses LDL. Hence it is important to lower cholesterol and one way to fight it is through good cholesterol food. Following are food items that will help you boost your good cholesterol level.
