12 Foods that Lower Cholesterol

18. Coffee.

As if you needed another reason to enjoy coffee, you now have another really good reason to enjoy your fresh cup daily. Coffee, best when black with no sugar, contains enzymes and compounds that can help to reduce your cholesterol levels. How much is still in debate, but studies have shown the benefits of coffee on fat metabolism as well as eliminating the bad cholesterol from your body. The key to gaining this benefit is to avoid excessive creamer that contains high amounts of saturated fats and to avoid any added sugars to this as well. The next time you stop at your local coffee shop, consider ordering it black or with non-fat milk.
