As most men get older, cholesterol levels begin to move in the wrong direction. The level of the bad cholesterol (low-density-lipoprotein) gradually increase. Levels of good cholesterol called High-density lipoprotein tend to fall. Unfortunately, that combination of high LDL and low HDL is one of the leading risk factors for heart disease. Excess cholesterol accumulates on the inner linning of blood vessels, leading to arthrosclerosis and heart attacks. The single best way to boost good HDL cholesterol is exercise.
