Why don’t you try adding these foods to your diet to help you combat high cholesterol.

1. Beans

No food is more fibre-rich than beans. And beans are especially high in cholesterol-lowering soluble fibre. Eating a cup of any kind of these beans can lower cholesterol.

2. Avocado

Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, a type of fat that may actually help to raise levels of HDL (“good” cholesterol) while lowering levels of LDL (“bad” cholesterol). They also pack more of the cholesterol-smashing beta-sitosterol (a beneficial plant-based fat) than any other fruit.

Beta-sitosterol reduces the amount of cholesterol absorbed from food. So the combination of beta-sitosterol and monounsaturated fat makes the avocado an excellent cholesterol buster.



Garlic has been found to lower cholesterol, prevent blood clots, reduce blood pressure, and protect against infections.

Research has also found that it helps stop artery-clogging plaque at its earliest stage. How? Garlic keeps individual cholesterol particles from sticking to artery walls.
