So “The addition of MUFA increased HDL and therefore may further enhance the cardioprotective effect of the cholesterol-lowering dietary portfolio without diminishing its cholesterol-lowering effect,” Jenkins and colleagues wrote. Monounsaturated fats are commonly consumed in what is known as the Mediterranean diet, notorious the researchers, who added that exercise, relieve alcohol consumption, not smoking and weight loss can also help raise “good” HDL cholesterol.
