HDL cholesterol

What is HDL and why is it important for your health?
High-density lipoprotein (HDL), also called the “good cholesterol”, is composed of a variety of proteins operating as a vehicle for removing excess cholesterol from cells. Increased removal of lipids consequently reduces plaque formation in arteries and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and overall risk for cardiovascular diseases. Boosting your HDL levels is therefore essential for maintaining young and healthy arteries and for improving your vascular health.
