How to Help Your HDL Levels

A recent study found that higher levels of HDL, also known as the “good” cholesterol, are associated with fewer aortic (heart) aneurysms and may help protect women from this condition, which results in the death of 13,000 Americans a year. Increasing HDL levels can improve your life in more ways than one. Exercise, stopping smoking, getting your body mass index (BMI) below 25, and eating monounsaturated fats, which are found in foods like salmon, walnuts, avocados, sardines, olives and olive oil are all ways to raise your HDL cholesterol.
