Cholesterol. You’ve probably looked on the back of nutrition labels and seen how much of it is in your food. But do you really know what it is?
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that your body uses to build cells. It gets to different parts of your body through your bloodstream. If you have too much cholesterol in your bloodstream, it will start to stick together and form little blockages in your arteries. If you have high cholesterol, you might have to take some cholesterol medication to keep it in check.
There are two different kinds of cholesterol: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. In this article, we’ll focus on the latter!
HDL, or high-density lipoprotein, cholesterol is known as the good cholesterol that helps remove other less helpful kinds of cholesterol. If you have higher levels of HDL cholesterol, you are likely to have a lower risk of heart disease.
What are optimal levels of HDL cholesterol?
Cholesterol levels are measured in milligrams (mg) of cholesterol per deciliter (dL) of blood or millimoles (mmol) per liter (L). With HDL cholesterol, higher numbers are better.
Men at risk: Less than 40 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L)
Men optimal levels: 60 mg/dL (1.6 mmol/L) or above
Women at risk: Less than 50 mg/dL (1.3 mmol/L)
Women optimal levels: 60 mg/dL (1.6 mmol/L) or above
Smoking makes your LDL cholesterol more sticky so that it clogs your arterial walls. If you quit smoking, your cholesterol levels might improve!
Exercising helps every aspect of your heart health, especially your cholesterol levels. Moderate physical activity can help raise your good cholesterol levels. Adding a few thirty minutes sessions of exercise per week will help improve your heart health.
