10 Foods That Lower Your Cholestrol

1. salmon

salmon doesn’t lower bad cholesterol, it does raise your good cholesterol, HDL, which in turn rids the body of the bad stuff

2. nuts

The monounsaturated fat in nuts can help lower bad cholesterol, and that goes for almonds, walnuts, peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans, some pine nuts, and pistachios.

3. beans

A serving of beans a day (about 3/4 cup) can measurably lower your cholesterol. It’s because of the soluble fiber in beans, which helps by decreasing cholesterol production in the liver

4. apples

apples (especially the skins) contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber that grabs onto the “bad” cholesterol and escorts it out of our bodies.

5. oats

it provides lots of soluble fiber which helps lower cholesterol by reducing the amount that gets absorbed into your bloodstream.

6. avocados

Nutrient dense avocados are high in healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, and have been found to help reduce bad cholesterol particles in multiple studies.

7. olive oil

Olive oil is another monounsaturated fat that makes so many foods taste better, and yet it still lowers our bad cholesterol levels.

8. garlic

It’s believed that garlic lowers bad cholesterol by preventing it from being produced in the liver

9. red wine

red wine in moderation is a good thing for your heart and cholesterol levels. But the issue is that wine consumption can be hard to control, and too much wine causes the opposite effect

10. dark chocolate

Dark chocolate contains more cocoa than other types of chocolate, and is higher in the flavonoids that have been shown to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
