Eating Fatty Fish Boosts The “Good" Cholesterol That Reduces Risk Of Cardiovascular Diseases

March 3, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Earlier studies have shown that high density lipoprotein (HDL or “good” cholesterol), especially large HDL particles, efficiently clean extra cholesterol off artery walls, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. A new study from Finland shows that diet can play a major role in the process. Participants who consumed at least three or four meals of salmon, rainbow trout or herring a week had more of these large HDL particles in their bloodstream than less frequent fish eaters. The researchers used advanced state-of-the-art metabolomics in the study that enabled a detailed analysis of lipoprotein particles.
