Boosting Good Cholesterol Walking on a Treadmill Desk

Good Cholesterol, the level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) that flows through our veins can be increased by walking as illustrated in numerous controlled studies.

Additionally, consistent walking helps reduce low-density lipoproteins (LDL or "bad" cholesterol) in the blood, which can cause plaque buildup along the artery walls, a leading cause of heart attacks.

The challenge is to get enough walking fit into the busy schedules of most employees today. Treadmill desks offer a unique solution which allows employess to walk as much as 8-10 hours in a single day while they are at work.
