Exercise can help lower your high cholesterol. Experts recommend exercise and physical activity to lower your LDL cholesterol. This is the “bad” type of cholesterol. Bad cholesterol drops the most for people who exercise briskly and often. Moderate exercise may also help lower bad cholesterol, too. But it doesn’t work as well. The best results come from combining:

  • weight loss
  • a heart healthy diet, and
  • an exercise program

Doctors say adults should exercise 3 to 4 times a week. Each exercise session should last at least 40 minutes.

Exercise most every day to keep high cholesterol away!
