Significant Correlation Between Vitamin A and HDL Levels Identified

Maintaining normal levels of HDL (good) cholesterol has been linked with a lower risk of heart disease. A recent study found a positive relationship between vitamin A consumption and better HDL cholesterol levels in obese but metabolically healthy people.


Participants in the study included 57 people, 22 of whom were men and 35 of whom were women, between the ages of 18 and 62. All the participants had a BMI above 29.9 kg/m2 and had no clinical signs of vitamin A deficiency. Additionally, none of the participants took nutritional supplements apart from vitamin D or any medications to treat high triglycerides, cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, or low HDL cholesterol levels.


After examining the data, the researchers determined that there was a significant positive correlation between vitamin A consumption and blood levels of HDL cholesterol. They also noted higher blood levels of HDL cholesterol in women than in men, despite the fact that mean vitamin A consumption was lower in women than in men.


Researchers from the University of Kaslik in Lebanon conducted the study. It was published on June 3, 2018, in the journal Cholesterol.


Vitamin A can be found in beef liver, egg yolk, cheddar cheese, and fortified milk. If you think youโ€™re not getting enough of these foods in your daily diet, try a high quality supplement.
