I’m eating a healthy diet – isn’t that enough to lower my cholesterol levels?
Eating a healthy diet that’s low in saturated fat, high in fibre and includes your ‘5-a-day’ is the foundation for achieving and maintaining healthier cholesterol levels, and a healthy heart.
But, there are a few foods like Benecol with plant stanols, oats and barley, nuts and soya foods that you can then include in your daily diet to help nudge your cholesterol levels even further in the right direction. The more you add, the more they can help lower your cholesterol.
Studies show that eating Benecol foods with plant stanols, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle can lower LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol more than healthy eating alone. And perhaps best of all, they taste great and are a delicious addition to your cholesterol friendly diet. So why not try adding Benecol to your daily routine.
