A team of scientists from King’s College, led by Dr. Scott Harding, found that oats, almonds, soy and plant sterols help lower the level of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) in the blood. To do this, they conducted an experiment in which 42 people took part. All subjects had high cholesterol levels before the start of the experiment.
All participants were divided into three groups. The first included almonds in her daily diet, the second included oats, and the third simply reduced the number of foods that contain cholesterol and replaced saturated animal fats with vegetable ones.
There was another subject on a separate diet. This is Dr. Michael Mosley. He added oats, soy, almonds, plant sterols to his diet. Each of these foods helps to lower cholesterol levels.
