High cholesterol: ‘Eat plenty’ of fibre to reduce high cholesterol


It adds: “Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fibre a day decreases your LDL cholesterol. One serving of a breakfast cereal with oatmeal or oat bran provides 3 to 4 grams of fibre.”

Heart UK says fibre can help you to feel full, which helps prevent overeating.

This can help you maintain a healthy weight, which is good for blood pressure, blood sugar control and cholesterol management.

It states: “Some types of fibre provide food for ‘friendly’ gut bacteria. This encourages the bacteria to thrive and produce substances which are thought to be protective for heart health. These can have a number of benefits such as helping to lower cholesterol.”

The recommended amount of fibre in the UK is 30g a day for adults, but most of us don’t eat this much, it says.
