Foods That Lower Cholesterol

The 40 Best Foods for Lowering Your Cholesterol, According to a Nutritionist (msn.com)

First, a quick explainer: Cholesterol is a waxy substance that travels through your bloodstream, but not all of it is bad. HDL cholesterol (also known as “good” cholesterol) actually sweeps away LDL cholesterol, or what’s commonly referred to as the”bad” kind. A high LDL level puts you at risk for heart attacks and strokes because it can clog arteries with plaque, a condition called atherosclerosis. A blood test can determine whether you have high cholesterol, and your doctor may recommend exercise or medication in addition to a healthier diet.
