Bad cholesterol (LDL) forms plaque and eventually causes problems, explains Dr. Deepa Sharma, Family Medicine Physician with Baptist Health Primary Care.
Good cholesterol (HDL) picks up the cholesterol from the blood and moves it into the liver and it can be managed and excreted, the doctor describes.
LDL, generally, comes from animal fats in form of butter, meats, cheese or milk. In contrast, HDL comes from fish oils and seeds such as chia, the expert says.
