Strategies for Lowering Cholesterol ?
A good cholesterol ratio is the right balance of the different cholesterols in your blood. The two main forms are LDL (lowdensity lipoprotein) and HDL(high-density lipoprotein). Just as we want the right amount of hormones, we want just the right amount of cholesterol as well. Too much and too little are equally undesirable.
