There is only ONE type of cholesterol, but there are two main carrier groups of these cholesterols called LDL’s (Low density lipoproteins) and HDL’s (high density lipoproteins).
The difference is LDL’s are made up of only 20% protein and the rest fat, while HDL’s are made up of 50% protein, which is better used by the body for a source of energy.
Having optimal HDL levels in the blood is not only great for you, but can even lower your overall cholesterol and eliminate 1 risk factor for heart disease, while promoting your body to burn more fat.
FOOD SOURCES TO RAISE YOUR HDL LEVELS:
3. Olive oil
4. Red wine (1 glass per day)
