It is a white, fatty mass produced in the liver which aids digestion and helps produce cell membranes and hormones.
"Egg Fact:- Avoid the egg yolk if you have cholesterol."
Beingoverweight can cause cholesterol levels to rise and this in turn can increase risk of heart disease. High density lipoprotein if get decrease show high cholesterol and vice versa for Low density lipoprotein.

Now your question is what are High and Low density lipoprotein ?

High Density Lipoprotein.As it does, it removes harmful bad cholesterol from where it doesn't belong. High HDL levels reduce the risk for heart disease -- but low levels increase the risk.Low Density Lipoprotein.LDL cholesterol is considered the “bad” cholesterol because it contributes to plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog arteries and make them less flexible. This condition is known as atherosclerosis. If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, heart attack or stroke can result. Another condition called peripheral artery disease can develop when plaque buildup narrows an artery supplying blood to the legs.

Why HDL good for you? 
It prevents extra cholesterol from accumulating in the bloodstream and directs it to the liver for elimination.


Garlic: The Ancient Herb for Heart Health For thousands of years, garlic has been used in nearly every culture in the world, and not just to repel evil.Avocado: Healthy Fat Superfood Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat?a type of fat that may actually help to raise levels of HDL ("good"cholesterol) while lowering levels of LDL ("bad" cholesterol). And these delectable green orbs pack more of the cholesterol-smashing beta-sitosterol (a beneficial plant-based fat) than any other fruit. Beta-sitosterol reduces the amount of cholesterol absorbed from food.Oats and Barley Both oats and barley are rich in a form of soluble fibre called beta glucan.  Once eaten beta glucan forms a gel which helps bind cholesterol in the intestines and prevent it from being absorbed.   It is recommended that we eat about 3g of beta glucan per day.  Foods which contain 1g or more of beta glucan can carry a cholesterol lowering claim.Foods rich in unsaturated fats Keeping our daily saturated fat intake below 20g (women) and 30g (men) is vital for cholesterol lowering, but it is equally important to replace this saturated fat with modest amounts of unsaturated fats such as those found in olive, sunflower, corn, rapeseed and other vegetable, nut and seed oils.
