Cholesterol is of two kinds, the HDL and the LDL. HDL or High density lipoprotein has the powers of reducing the risk of heart diseases. It does so by erasing the harmful LDL i.e. Low density lipoprotein from the body. It is therefore considered very important to raise the HDL levels in our body, so as to maintain a healthy body. The cholesterol rich foods which are believed to be beneficial are, olive oil, peanut oil, cashew, peanuts, fish, soybean oil, red wine, orange juice, onions and beans. So, take a decision to include HDL foods in your diet, to reduce the risk of any heart problems.
