Take control of your cholesterol to lower your heart disease risk. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Reduce risk with fiber

    Add whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables to your meals to reduce heart disease risk

  • Add soy protein to your diet

    30 grams (about 1 ounce) a day of powdered soy protein added to food or drinks can help lower cholesterol

  • Check out natural vegetable fats (plant sterols and stanols)

    Take 1.6 grams a day as a supplement or in specially fortified margarines to help reduce cholesterol

  • Get some supplemental garlic

    600 to 900 mg a day of a standardized garlic extract may help lower cholesterol and prevent hardening of the arteries

  • Raise “good” cholesterol with exercise

    Start a regular exercise program to help raise HDL ("good") cholesterol

  • Cut the bad fats

    Foods that contain saturated fat, hydrogenated fat, and cholesterol (such as animal products, fried foods, and baked snacks) can raise cholesterol.
