Alcohol, green tea, niacin, dark chocolate and several other substances increase HDL. Google "How to Triple Your HDL" by Jonathan Carey and feel free to contact him. This was one of the more interesting poster presentations at AHS'11.

Your numbers look great. Triglycerides are low which means you probably aren't consuming much refined carbohydrates and your liver is not fat. You HDL is almost the same as your LDL... that's good stuff!
