3 steps to lower your cholesterol
Whatever your age, lifestyle factors can play a big part in raising your cholesterol. Take control of your health in 3 simple steps
Reduce your intake of trans and saturated fats with simple food swaps:
-Vegetable oils (e.g. olive oil) over animal derived fats (e.g. butter).
-Oily fish or lean poultry over processed or red meat.
-Nuts, seeds or soy beans over ready-to-eat snacks like crisps.
Improve your habits
Being active helps to increase the ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) in your blood.
It stimulates the movement of fatty deposits to the liver, which helps to keep the heart and blood vessels in good condition. 150 minutes of moderate‑intensity exercise per week is all you need* – try 30 minutes, 5 days per week! Giving up smoking is also an essential step to reducing your cholesterol.
Boost your diet
