by Lewis Chang, PhD and Annalouise O’Connor, PhD, RD High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is best known for its ability to carry cholesterol from the blood to the liver for elimination. HDL also facilitates other cardioprotective effects in the body through anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and antithrombotic actions.1,2 However, for HDL to have these benefits, it needs to be functional. Loss of HDL function, or worse, gain of HDL dysfunction can negatively impact cardiometabolic health.3 In addition to cholesterol, HDL can accumulate other molecules,…

Ashley Jordan Ferira, PhD, RDN If you can have a favorite nutrient, mine would be vitamin D.
