Health Poll

Which of the following behaviors can help to increase your HDL?

F) All of the above. --> Your lifestyle has the single greatest impact on your HDL cholesterol. Even small changes to your daily habits can help you reach the recommended level (men at least 40 mg/dL; women at least 50 mg/dL). Why is this so important? Because HDLs act as cholesterol scavengers, picking up excess cholesterol in your blood and taking it back to your liver where it’s broken down. The higher your HDL level, the less “bad” cholesterol you’ll have in your blood.
