Set A Healthier Table

Simple Steps To Start Setting A Healthier Table For Your Family

Eat Plant Sterols

Plant sterols are micro-nutrients found in many plants used for oils, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and cereal. They are proven to help lower cholesterol.1,2

Choose The Right Fats

Knowing which fats raise cholesterol and which ones don’t is the first step in lowering your risk of heart disease. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are the two unsaturated fats found in fish, nuts, seeds and corn oil. These fats may help lower your cholesterol level.3 Decreasing intake of saturated and trans fats can also play an important role in cholesterol management.

Add More Fiber

Fruits and vegetables, including whole grains, are good sources of heart-healthy antioxidants and cholesterol-lowering dietary fiber. Soluble fiber, in particular, has been associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease.4

Go Fish

Fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which have a profound effect on heart health.5

Get Moving

Regular physical activity can help control your blood pressure, manage weight and strengthen your heart. These benefits come even with moderate exercise, such as brisk walking when done regularly for a total of 30 minutes or longer at least five days a week.6
