nutrition question....HDL and exercise?

Posted

Hi everyone,

I have a question. I don't understand how exercise raises your HDL. I know it does....but how?

Exercise increases blood glucose and lipid levels, and the increase in blood flow that comes with exercise speeds up the rate at which HDL transports cholesterol from cells back to the liver for recycling. This is what I inferred based on what I read in my book.
