How exercise can help lower cholesterol levels - video!

Why exercise is good for cholesterol

Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your cholesterol levels. It helps to raise your HDL (good) cholesterol and lower your LDL (bad) cholesterol. This is important because high LDL cholesterol can lead to plaque buildup in your arteries, which can increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.

There are many different types of exercise that are good for your cholesterol. Some good options include:

  • Aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking, running, swimming, and biking.

  • Strength training, such as lifting weights or using resistance bands.

  • High-intensity interval training (HIIT), which involves alternating short bursts of intense activity with periods of rest or low-intensity activity.

You should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week. If you're new to exercise, start slowly and gradually increase the amount of time you spend exercising each week.

Above is a video that shows some exercises that are good for cholesterol :)
