Another Role for HDL Cholesterol

High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is the so-called good cholesterol. It acts as a cleansing agent against the build up of the bad or Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the arteries. Scientists have also discovered that there is another use for HDL cholesterol that makes it even better. HDL is able to protect the human body against certain parasites -- even those that are deadly to some animals.

Recent research has uncovered just how HDL cholesterol can work to protect humans against specific microorganisms. HDL works to create immunity by allowing the formation and distribution of two proteins. These proteins are naturally found in humans, and with the aid of HDL cholesterol they come together to form an anti-microbial that fights the brucei brucei parasite which is deadly to African and known as Nagana disease. Humans are exposed to this parasite, yet are immune because of HDL and the combined proteins.

Scientists are further hoping that this discovery will protect African cattle and their farmers. Their findings may also help in the research for finding treatments for other parasitic infections such as malaria, which can be deadly to humans. Because Nagana in cattle is closely related to African sleeping disease in humans, the role of HDL is being investigated as a potential treatment for that disease as well.

HDL cholesterol should be at a level of at least 40 mg/dL. If this number is low, LDL cholesterol may cause further damage to human arteries. To raise HDL exercise is effective. If you exercise regularly, but still have low HDL, then you may need to increase the frequency or intensity of your workouts. There are prescription medications designed to raise HDL, but they can have undesirable side effects.
