Brief Answer:
Exercise.

Detailed Answer:
Hi xxxxxxxxxx. Good to hear back from you.

I must mention that HDL is a good cholesterol and right diet and exercise play very good role in improving it.

However, Cod liver oil can be used as a supplement for this purpose.

So my recommendations would be to take Cod liver oil capsules twice daily along with low-fat diet and exercise.

I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.
