Raise HDL Cholesterol and Improve Memory

Posted by Lisa Nelson, RD, LN on October 10, 2008

I recently published an article titled How to Raise HDL the Good Cholesterol and I just came across another great reason to boost HDL numbers.

A study published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology indicates higher HDL levels equal higher scores on memory tests. This was a 5 year study of ~3700 men and women with an average age of 55 to 61 years-old. The memory test included hearing a list of twenty words and then writing down all the words participants could remember within 2 minutes.

No link was found between triglycerides nor total cholesterol and memory performance. Nor was a link identified between HDL and Alzheimer’s.

  2. Hey, i really know how its to suffer from a problem like this. I have been struggling from this like a few years with the normal ups and downs so i really know its not fun when you have a problem like this. At a website i noticed some members were pretty happy about a remedie they got from the internet and i also ordered it when i found those pills at – herbalhealingstore dot com -. So you see, these herbals do work, you only have to get the good ones!
