I was so amazed after reading an article from the Planet Green Discovery about ten specific food that help reduce or lower your cholesterol level. Here's the list of food that contain high fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lecithin, Rutin and Niacin. 

  1. Seeds and Nuts- almonds, flax seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seed, walnuts and more.
  2. Fish- such as salmon, sardines, deep/cold water fish and mackerel.
  3. Legumes- tofu, lentils, mung beans, soybeans and more.
  4. Vegetables- horseradish, radish, hot peppers, onion, garlic, cucumber, sea vegetables and more.
  5. Herbs- such as burdock root, dandelion root, cayenne pepper, ginger and much more.
  6. Fruits- tomato, banana, citrus, rose hip and persimmon.
  7. Whole grains- rye, buckwheat, wheat, quinoa rice and more.
  8. Bee pollen and honey (raw)
  9. Oils- make sure to go for good fats such as Omega 9, hazel, almond and food that contains natural good fat oil.
  10. Last but not certainly the least- make sure to eat various whole food which give you the complete nutrients that your body needs.
