5 Foods that fight Cholesterol

Again, thanks to MSN for giving these tips.

Almonds: Eating a quarter cup of almonds (like 10 to 15) can lower your LDL by 4.4 percent. Almonds have good monosaturated fat. They are also high in calories.

Oatmeal: They have high levels of soluble fiber. These fiber binds to the bile acids that are the precursor to the development of cholesterol and help flush it out.

Fish: Omega-3 fatty acids or good fats are in fish. If you cannot eat fish (like me) you can switch to fish oil supplements.

Red Wine: Red wine have anti inflammatory properties that may help lower cholesterol. For men you can have 2 glasses of red wine a day and for women 1 glass. These can also be found in red grape juice and dark cocoa.

Soy: Soy can help to reduce the production of new cholesterol.
