The fish

Lowering diets because it contains so little saturated fat and has some of the polyunsaturated fat that helps lower blood cholesterol.

Eskimos rarely suffered heart attacks found that the omega-3 fats in their fish-rich diet make their blood less prone to clotting.

You have an alternative: fish-oil capsules.

However, a single capsule does not provide as much omega-3 oil as a serving of fatty fish.

Roll with the oats

Another dietary choice: oat bran and beans – reduced cholesterol 20 percent.

Oat bran muffins (about two large ones per day) lower blood cholesterol, 1/2 cup of dry beans, cooked and incorporated into a soup or side dish.

It’s their soluble fiber and cholesterol bind together and is eliminated from the body.

Fairly large amount-more than a single serving a day- to reap the benefits you’re looking for. If your cholesterol remains too high after a trial of oat bran or beans, you’ll have to cut down on saturated fat and cholesterol, too.
