What Is Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a soft, white, waxy substance found in the bloodstream. Your body needs some cholesterol to function; it helps you digest food and build cells. Too many fatty foods, not eating the recommended amount of dietary fiber and too little exercise leads to high cholesterol, a major factor in heart disease.

Adding 6 grams of dietary fiber to your diet each day can reduce you risk of heart attack by 25% as reported in a follow-up study of nearly 900 older men and women published in 1987 in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Eating foods such as oats, beans, barley, fruits, vegetables, and whole-wheat breads are all great sources of fiber. Adding these foods to your diet will help.
