4 Foods To Lower Your Cholesterol

April 23, 2018

If you suffer from high cholesterol or if your friends/family members have high cholesterol this post is for you. Diet is one of the most important things to bring into check when it comes to maintaining a healthy level of cholesterol. Caring for high cholesterol through your diet is also a nice natural way to bring the LDL (“bad” cholesterol) down a notch or two.

1. Oatmeal/Steal-Cut Oats
Contains soluble fiber, which helps reduce the absorption of cholesterol in your blood.

2. Fish/Omega Fatty Acids
Eating fatty fish can be heart healthy from the omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s reduce blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots. “The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish a week.” (mayoclinic.com)

3. Olive oil
Olive oil contains antioxidants that can lower your LDL cholesterol, and what’s better is it leaves your HDL (“good” cholesterol) untouched. The cholesterol-lowering effects of olive oil are even better if you opt for extra-virgin olive oil.

4. Nuts
Walnuts, almonds, and other nuts contain both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which lower LDL cholesterol levels. Remember, nuts are high in calories. You don’t want to gain a bunch of weight from eating too many, this brings an entirely new set of problems. A handful will do.

Healthy cholesterol levels lead to a happy, healthy life.
