Cholesterol lowering nuts

Nuts are good source of unsaturated fats, which can help lower LDL cholesterol levels, especially when they replace saturated fats in the diet. Nuts are also rich in fiber, which helps the body from absorbing cholesterol and promotes its excretion. All nuts are suitable for a heart-healthy, cholesterol-lowering diet, including: Almonds, walnuts, cashew, brazil nut, pistachio. Almond, hazelnuts and walnuts raise “good” HDL cholesterol while reducing total and “bad” LDL cholesterol.
