4 small changes to improve cholesterol
4 small changes to improve your cholesterol levels.

1. Regular Exercise

You don’t necessarily need a gym membership to combat bad cholesterol. Just 30 minutes of moderate daily activity can help increase levels of ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL – high-density lipoprotein) and encourage weight loss. After getting the green light from your doctor, why not try going for a brisk walk, cycling, or swimming to get started?

Extra tip: To stay motivated, find an exercise buddy or join a group.

2. Whey Protein

Organic whey protein is derived from a by-product of the cheese-making process. Whey protein doesn’t just help build muscle and assist recovery, but (as a supplement) helps to lower LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and overall cholesterol, making it an all-around great choice for the fitness-minded.

3. Healthier Fats

Saturated fats, generally found in dairy products and red meat, increase total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels (‘bad’ cholesterol). To lower your intake of saturated fats, opt for leaner cuts of mean, monounsaturated fats (e.g. olive and canola oils), and low-fat dairy products.

4. Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids help increase HDL levels which, in turn, reduce triglycerides and thereby lower blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish (e.g. salmon, trout, tuna) and plant sources like walnuts, almonds, and ground flaxseeds to name but a few examples.
