Good practices for cholesterol control

For many people, controlling cholesterol is a priority objective in their lives, as their health depends to a large extent on it.

Diet is the best way to achieve this cholesterol control, if we choose the right foods.

How to control cholesterol naturally?


There are many ways to control cholesterol naturally, without the need for medication or even dietary supplements.

Artichoke tea is one of the most popular options. It effectively slows down its development and is very easy to prepare.

Turmeric is also a highly recommended spice, as it reduces excess cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Moreover, to make the most of it, just add it to your dishes such as rice or stews.

Of course, reducing or even eliminating bad habits such as smoking or drinking alcohol can help significantly to control cholesterol in a natural way.

Keeping fit is also useful to avoid the consequences of bad cholesterol and to control your weight in a healthy way.

Ideal diet to control cholesterol

Ideally, you should maintain an optimal diet to control your cholesterol at all times.

To do this, it is of course important to reduce the presence of foods that contain cholesterol and to prioritise those rich in fibre such as cereals, fruit and pulses.

Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids should begin to have a greater presence in your diet, as these acids can help raise the level of good cholesterol (HDL).

Also reduce the amount of salt in foods, as many foods already contain salt naturally.

Eliminate saturated fats from your diet and choose healthier fats such as lean meats, nuts, unsaturated fats such as olive oil, etc.

What are the most recommended foods to control cholesterol?

The most recommended foods to control cholesterol are the following:

  • Milk and dairy products without fat.
  • White meats such as turkey or chicken.
  • Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon or sardines.
  • Walnuts, almonds and other nuts.
  • Vegetable oils such as olive oil.
  • Oatmeal and fibre-rich foods.
  • Fruits such as avocado, which helps raise good cholesterol (HDL) and lower bad cholesterol (LDL).
  • Garden produce such as tomatoes and peppers.
