Want to impress others with your low cholesterol?  Then test it in the afternoon:

The biological clock, whose function deteriorates with increasing age, determines bodily circadian (i.e. 24h) rhythms, including that of cholesterol metabolism. Dampening of circadian rhythms has been associated with aging and disease. Therefore, we hypothesized that individuals with a familial predisposition for longevity have a higher amplitude circadian serum cholesterol concentration rhythm. The aim of this study was to investigate circadian rhythmicity of serum cholesterol concentrations in offspring of nonagenarian siblings and their partners.

We conclude that familial longevity is characterized by a high circadian rhythmicity of non‐HDL‐C in healthy elderly offspring from nonagenarian siblings.
