 Fiber-Rich Diet Helps Reduce Cholesterol
People suffering from high blood cholesterol should consume a fiber rich diet which should also consist of seasonal vegetables and fruit, a research conducted by a German scientific group revealed.

According to Richard Radesch, who is a member of Professional Association of German Internists (BDI), consuming diet which contains fiber rich products like whole grain helps in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.

However he said that a healthy diet alone will not help in controlling cholesterol levels, adding that proper exercises and low intake of sugar and carbohydrates, which are often found in processed food items, should be avoided along with sausage and dairy products which are high in animal fats.
