1. Whole grains
Whole grains have soluble fiber, which attaches to the excess LDL cholesterol in your digestive system and eliminates it from your body. Whole grains also have magnesium, which regulates the blood pressure and causes dilation of the blood vessels. The American Heart Association recommends consumption of at least six servings of whole grain daily. So, you’ll need to trade your carbs for whole grains. Oatmeal, quinoa, whole-wheat pasta, barley, brown rice, and whole-grain bread are examples of whole grains. All these help in keeping arteries clear and lowering the ‘bad cholesterol’ levels.
