Any food rich in Omega 3's is good. Natural peanut butter-1 tablespoon a day or a handful of peanuts, Albacore tuna, herring, salmon, sardines, Omega 3 fish oil pills and garlic pills also have been helpful in lowering cholesterol and you get them at health food stores or anywhere that sells vitamins, etc... Exercise will also lower it. But to lower cholesterol, avoid red meats and dairy products and eat more fruits and vegetables.
