How to lower high cholesterol
Changing what foods you eat is key to lowering your cholesterol levels.
“Adding foods that lower LDL, the harmful cholesterol-carrying particle that contributes to artery-clogging atherosclerosis, is the best way to achieve a low cholesterol diet,” explains Harvard Health.
According to the health body, “an easy first step to lowering your cholesterol is having a bowl of oatmeal or cold oat-based cereal like Cheerios for breakfast”.
Crucially, oats contain soluble fibre, which deals a decisive blow to high cholesterol.
