One of the most effective ways of keeping your cholesterol level low is through exercise. Frequent exercise raises DHL (good cholesterol), lowers triglycerides, and LDL (The bad cholesterol). Health experts recommend that adults should have at least 75 minutes of exercise every day. However, if you are new to exercise, you may opt to start slowly and gradually increase the duration. Exercise can be done in the gym, jogging, cycling, swimming, climbing, running, walking, and lots more. However, If you have a health complication such as diabetes or cardiovascular issues, you should consult with your personal doctor before embarking on an exercise routine.
