Whatever your age, a busy lifestyle, stress or tiredness can play a big part in raising your cholesterol. Take control of your health in 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Eat well
Reduce your intake of trans- and saturated fats with simple food swaps:
-Wholegrains over white bread/pasta.
-Oily fish or lean poultry over processed or red meat.
-Nuts, seeds or soy beans over ready-to-eat snacks like crisps.
Step 2: Get active
Being active helps to increase the ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) in your blood. It stimulates the movement of fatty deposits to the liver, which helps to keep the heart and blood vessels in good condition. 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week is all you need** – try 30 minutes, 5 days per week!
Step 3: Boost your diet
High in fibre and a source of protein, one serving of Beta heart® also provides 1.5g beta-glucans; a soluble fibre found in the oat bran from oats, which helps to lower or maintain your cholesterol.*
Mix two 2 scoops of Beta heart® with water for a sugar-free drink. You can also mix with fruit juice or add it to your favourite Formula 1 shake once per day. Alternatively mix 1 scoop twice per day.
*Oat beta glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Beta-glucans contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Coronary heart disease has multiple risk factors and altering one of these risk factors may or may not have a beneficial effect.
