Five Foods that Fight Cholesterol

There's no magic formula that can keep you healthy as you age, but according to the Mayo Clinic the following foods can help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL).
Fish - doctors recommend eating at least two servings of fish a week. Herring, mackerel, salmon, sardines trout and tuna have the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids which help lower cholesterol, and reduce blood pressure and the risk of blood clots. Prepare fish by baking or grilling it to get the most heart-healthy benefits from it.
Nuts - like almonds and walnuts are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids which keep blood vessels youthful and elastic. Eating a handful a day nuts may reduce your risk of heart disease, but nuts are also high in calories so look for dry-roasted varieties.
Oatmeal - contains soluble fiber which prevents cholesterol from being absorbed into your body.
Olive Oil - has an ideal mixture of antioxidants which can lower your bad cholesterol yet leave your good cholesterol untouched. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends using about two tablespoons per day.
Soy - soybeans, soymilk, tofu and other soy products can help to reduce the production of new cholesterol.
