Our body is made of food which we eat in our day to day life and if we have a high cholesterol level that means the food we eat is not healthy.
Our body is able to produce the perfect quantity of cholesterol needed so we do not require the cholesterol from the animal food we eat. A high level of blood cholesterol can be a clear sign of a risk of heart attack and stroke.
Following super food helps in lowering our cholesterol level.
1. Fruits such as Apples, grapes, strawberries, citrus fruits etc are rich in soluble fiber that lowers LDL.
2. Whole grains & Barley: Just like oats, barley and other whole grains can help lower the risk of heart disease,
mainly via the soluble fiber they bring.

and other nuts are good for the heart as it can lower LDL.
5.Oats. A bowl of oatmeal for breakfast is excellent as it gives you soluble fiber.
