If you’re looking to lower your cholesterol, you need some healthy fat… specifically the plant-based fat oleic acid. You’ll find it in olive oil, avocado, almonds and pecans. And according to Loma Linda University, it lowers bad cholesterol as quickly and effectively as prescription medications. You need about one-third of a cup of almonds and pecans daily. And two new studies show that eating an avocado a day is as effective as taking prescription statins for high cholesterol.
