September is National Cholesterol Education Month. Find out the top foods that can lower cholesterol and boost heart health.
High cholesterol affects people of all ages. Nearly one in three Americans has high cholesterol and is at greater risk for heart disease if left untreated. That’s why it’s important to make sure you know how to eat right, exercise, and keep a healthy weight.
For National Cholesterol Education Month, get your cholesterol checked and find out what you need to do to lower it if it’s high. Keep in mind that high cholesterol can go undetected, as there are no symptoms or warning signs. Make sure to visit your primary care provider (PCP) for your annual checkup.
To prevent and manage high cholesterol, you can start small by adding in common foods like garlic or even by switching your morning coffee for tea once in a while. If you’re ready to start making healthy eating choices now, check out the information below.
