Cholesterol Blood Test

The HDL or High Density Lipoprotein (good cholesterol) in your Cholesterol Profile can be increased to within safe limits (above 1.2mmols) by increasing your intake of oily fish and Essential Fatty Acids. Taking Omega 3, 6, 9 Essential Fatty Acids, 2 capsules daily, contributes to an excellent HDL, as do porridge oats, nuts, grains, green vegetables and brown bread. Opt for brown wholemeal or granary bread instead of white products and increase dark green vegetables, including kale, broccoli, sprouts and spinach. There is also the option of blending raw vegetables on a daily basis to increase your HDL. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a blended vegetable juice every day.

For your information, HDL can also be increased with exercise, as part of a daily routine as well as omitting trans-fats from your diet and replacing with olive oil. Limiting your intake of pastries, processed foods, white bread, red meat and crisps can improve your overall Cholesterol level.

A high Cholesterol of over 5mmols can also be lowered by quitting smoking, losing weight, consuming cereals, nuts, whole grains, fruit, and vegetables and replacing trans-fats with unsaturated oil. As mentioned, natural supplements can also contribute to reducing high cholesterol, including Omega 3,6,9.
