10 Foods That Lower Cholesterol
1 of 11
Start With Oats

Perhaps the best-known cholesterol-lowering food is the humble oat. Inexpensive, versatile, and delicious, oats can be a powerful arsenal in your anticholesterol diet. A bowl of oatmeal (or an oat-based cereal, like Cheerios) can get your day started in the right direction. You can even incorporate oats into dessert, with oatmeal cookies or other similar tasty treats. The soluble fiber in oats acts like sponges, soaking up the cholesterol before it can be absorbed. As an added bonus, the fiber will help you feel fuller longer.
