    LDL or “Low-density lipoprotein” is the bad cholesterol that delivers fats and cholesterol to our bodies cells and arteries

    HDL or “high-denisty lipoprotein)” is the good cholesterol that acts like a courier and picks up cholesterol from our cells and arteries.

    In general we want to have more of the HDL or good cholesterol running around in our body. This helps to protect us against cardiovascular disease.
