Keep Cholesterol in Check With Exercise

When hockey superstar Steven Stamkos and his team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, shut out the New York Rangers in game seven of the Eastern Conference play-offs to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals, they showed how to keep an opponent in check.

Keeping your cholesterol in check as effectively as the Bolts checked the Rangers will give you an important victory, too.

A new study from the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina (it's not just us!) demonstrates how getting 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of intense exercise weekly keeps you young.

Researchers looked at data from the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study at the Cooper Institute that tracked more than 11,400 men, ages 20 to 90, from 1970 to 2006.

Those who did 150 minutes of exercise weekly were able to postpone the expected age-related rise in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels by more than 15 years!

Guys that didn't stay fit started to see LDL cholesterol (and the risk for heart disease) rise in their 20s and 30s. We're sure the same is true for women.

So for at least 30 minutes five days a week, take a walk, ride a bike, swim, or jog.

It's a fun and easy way to make sure your lousy cholesterol stays in check and keeps age at bay.
