Taking oats is supposed to keep one’s cholesterol in check. When I had that ghastly accident years ago because of resting for months my HDL levels had gone down bringing the bad cholesterol up. My doctor suggested that I make oats as my staple diet.
I took that advice and prepared porridge with oats and that lasted for a couple of years. I got so fed up that I gave up taking it and I do not think I will ever get back to it.
The good news is that I was told red wine does precisely that – increases HDL levels. I now take red wine – just 60 ml and it has helped me greatly.
Do you take anything to bring down your bad cholesterol?
