All about cholesterol
You should know that your total cholesterol is a combination of three types of cholesterol:


  1. Can it help boost my HDL cholesterol, which absorbs LDL cholesterol and takes it to my liver to be flushed from my body?
  2. Can it help reduce my LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, which can clog my arteries?

To maximize heart health, the American Heart Association recommends you get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity. On top of that, add at least two sessions per week of moderate- to high-intensity weight or resistance workouts. Among other exercises, these include:

  • Stretch (resistance) bands
  • Medicine balls
  • Bodyweight exercises such as pushups, squats
  • Dumbbells
