1. Exercise, exercise, exercise

Is there anything exercise can’t help? Studies show that regular moderate physical activity can lower total cholesterol and raise good HDL cholesterol levels by up to 10 percent.

2. Get your fiber. Soluble fiber

Like what’s found in oatmeal, barley and beans — acts like a sponge in the digestive tract, helping to reduce cholesterol levels naturally.

3. Drink green tea

Swap out sugary drinks and sodas for green tea, which contains compounds that can help lower bad LDL cholesterol. Green tea can also help prevent weight gain!

4. Enjoy garlic

This “stinking rose” has been shown to help reduce inflammation, fight oxidation and help lower bad LDL cholesterol levels. Totally worth popping a piece of gum
