Cholesterol – HDL

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the type of cholesterol we think of as “good.” A higher HDL level is actually healthier. HDL helps take cholesterol out of your bloodstream by carrying it to the liver, where it’s used or removed from circulation. So a higher HDL means you may have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke, depending on other aspects of your overall health and lifestyle. 

Foods high in HDL levels are:

  1. Olive oil
  2. Beans and legumes
  3. Whole grains
  4. High-fibre fruit
  5. Fatty fish
  6. Flax
  7. Nuts
  8. Chia seeds
  9. Avocado
