    Types of Cholesterol

    There are two main types of cholesterol. LDL and HDL.

    Low-density lipoproteins (LDL)

    LDL cholesterol are sometimes called “bad” cholesterol because too much is unhealthy. High levels of LDL cholesterol can build up in your arteries, causing heart disease.

    Main foods types which supplies LDL cholestrol are:-

    • Dairy Foods
    • Red Meats
    • Lean Protein
    • Processed Foods
    • Foods Containing Trans Fats.

    High-density lipoproteins (HDL)

    HDL cholesterols are referred to as “good” cholesterol because it is protective. HDL cholesterol carries cholesterol from other parts of your body back to the liver. Your liver then processes the cholesterol out of your body.

    These foods are suppliers of HDL cholestrol:-

    • Olive oil
    • Beans and legumes
    • Whole grains
    • High-fiber fruit such as prunes, apples, and pears
    • Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, albacore tuna and sardines
    • Nuts
    • Avocado
    • Soy
    • Redwine
