How can controlled your cholesterol

 Foods that make up a low cholesterol diet can help reduce high levels

1) Oatmeal- Oat bran and high-fiber foods. Foods high in soluble fiber help reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Soluble fiber is also found in kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes.

2)  Walnuts -- Almonds and other nuts. Eating a handful of nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts each day may reduce your risk of heart disease. Avoid salted or sugarcoated nuts. These add unnecessary sodium and calories.

3) Olive oil-- Is packed full of beneficial antioxidants that can lower your "bad" (LDL) cholesterol while leaving your "good" (HDL) cholesterol untouched.

4) Dark chocolate-- Improves several important

risk factors for disease. It lowers the susceptibility of LDL to oxidative

damage while increasing HDL and improving insulin sensitivity.

5) Flax Seeds--The high fiber content of flax seeds can help lower cholesterol and may play an important role in improving heart health.

Keeping LDL cholesterol levels low is important, as it decreases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
