  • In a cross-sectional study, we collected and analysed blood from 245 healthy students between 18 and 25 years old from the University of Barcelona throughout the annual campaign of the blood bank
  • All blood samples were taken after breakfast at 8:00 and 11:00 am
  • Significant seasonal rhythms were detected for all the variables studied except proteins, with most of them peaking in the winter season
  • The lowest value for cLDL and the HL occurs in summer, while for cHDL and the LPL it is in winter
  • These findings demonstrate for the first time that in physiological conditions, plasma LPL and HL activities and lipids follow seasonal rhythms
