12 Foods that Lower Cholesterol

19. Blueberries.

These tasty little berries are quite high in many vitamins and nutrients, but perhaps the most important compounds in blueberries are the hidden phenols. The phenols are health protecting compounds that give many fruits and vegetables their coloring, but they are also important for playing a vital role in the reduction of your cholesterol levels. You can add fresh blueberries to your oatmeal, cereal, grains, and your smoothies to gain these benefits, but some often prefer to eat a handful of them at a time as part of a healthy and low-calorie snack. Look for these berries when they are in season and fresh, but if you live in a location that does not grow these berries then you can always eat frozen.
