Reviewed By Ray Spotts
Among all nutraceuticals (foods with medicinal properties) oatmeal and oat bran are the most potent. Packed with soluble fiber, they create a gel-like substance in the digestive system that bonds with cholesterol molecules and prevents them from entering the blood stream. Harvard University conducted a study that analyzed over 60 trials and found that even small amounts of soluble fiber added to a daily diet could reduce cholesterol by 5 points. Other good sources besides oats are kidney beans, apples, and pears.
