4 foods that boost good cholesterol
These four super-foods increase your levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or "good cholesterol," which will help lower your risk for heart disease
HDL rose four percent in adults who ate two 115-gram servings of salmon a week for four weeks, according to a Loma Linda University study.
A study found that 100 grams of dark chocolate daily raises HDL by nine percent. That’s 550 calories; luckily, 15 grams helps too, say researchers.
Adults who ate an egg every day for 12 weeks increased HDL as much as 48 percent, according to a study from Thailand. Why? They have tons of lecithin.
