What foods lower cholesterol?

Controlling cholesterol depends to a large extent on a correct diet and the choice of the most recommendable foods, with which to curb and reduce its presence.

At Caña Nature we have products that can be of great help to you with this objective and, incidentally, to maintain a healthy diet.

What can I eat if I have high cholesterol?


In reality, there are many gastronomic options that are recommended when you have high cholesterol.

One of the most recommended products is avocado, which you will find in our proposals of original guacamole, guacamole rich in vitamin A or directly with our avocado pulp.

Avocado stands out for its properties such as low LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It also has monounsaturated fats, which are popularly known as “good fats”.

Another recommended recipe is our salmorejo, if you are looking for a low cholesterol diet. As well as being a refreshing alternative for any day of the year, its ingredients include vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene and various minerals. It also includes tomato, which helps to reduce triglyceride levels and control cholesterol.

If you particularly want to take advantage of the properties of tomato, our catalogue also includes grated tomato, with the variety of Pera Caniles tomatoes, produced by our farmers on the Costa Tropical of Granada and which, in addition to the benefits mentioned above, also stand out as a variety for offering an intense flavour and aroma.

The fresh gazpacho that you can find in Caña Nature is also very useful for reducing “bad” cholesterol, as it includes tomatoes among other ingredients. In this case, the vasodilator effect of garlic is added, with which you can better control your blood pressure.

In addition, gazpacho has a satiating effect, which can be very useful in any slimming diet, making it easier to avoid eating other less recommendable foods.

What foods should I avoid if I have cholesterol?

Just as there are foods that are recommended, if we suffer from cholesterol we should also avoid others that can make us worse in this sense.
