Six foods to lower cholesterol and also prevent heart disease

High cholesterol levels can cause you to die young. Heart attacks and strokes are the leading causes of death in the world. High levels of cholesterol, which enter our bodies unexpectedly as a result of our poor eating habits, contribute to these health problems. 

Fortunately for you, I've done some research and would like to share with you 7 foods that can help lower cholesterol and minimize your risk of heart attack and stroke. 

Here are six foods that can help you lower your cholesterol.

1. Okro (also known as okra) 

We all like the "greeny" vegetable, especially when it's served with banks. But keep in mind that, aside from its slippery and delectable nature, okro can help you get closer to having a healthy heart. 

According to studies, the gel material found in this vegetable aids in the digestion of cholesterol. 

2. Avocado 

If you enjoy avocados or pears, you may have noticed that information on their health advantages has exploded on the internet. Potassium and salt, which are heart-healthy minerals, are found in the drupe fruit. It also has 14.7 grams of monounsaturated fat, which lowers LDL cholesterol levels.

3. Eggplant

Eggplant is commonly regarded as one of the most effective vegetables for preventing heart attacks and strokes. It has a lot of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber, according to the American Heart Association (AHA), can help lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other conditions. 

4. Apples

Have you had any apples recently? If you answered no, it's time to rethink your fruit selection. Start eating apples if you want a healthy heart and a long life. Apples have been found to help lower cholesterol levels. 

5. Consume fish

Yes, you read that correctly. I know you're a victim, so I won't say anything about it

6. Nuts

Almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts, and other nuts and seeds have all been added to the list of cholesterol-lowering foods. Which of the foods listed above have you recently consumed?
