Reduce Cholesterol the easy and delicious way
Soluble fibre is what makes the water milky when cooking rice, barley or oats etc. Consuming soluble fibre in the form of Beta-glucan, can help lower risk of heart attack and all degenerative diseases. Soluble fibre found from plant sources can lower the bad LDL blood cholesterol levels by binding with it in the small intestine. The cholesterol is excreted along with the fibre in the faeces and is therefore unable to enter the blood stream and travel around the body.
Women should consume around 25g per day of fibre and men 38g. Best sources are oats, barley and rice, lentils, beans, vegetables. Oat milk is a fantastic replacement for cow’s milk as it contains soluble fibre.
