Helper of Hearts

Your heart pumps blood – which then carries oxygen your body needs to function. That you probably already knew. But what you may not know is the important role food may play in keeping your heart healthy. We’re here to help.

Oatmeal Has the Fiber You Want

There’s solid evidence that whole grain oats and oat bran can help lower blood cholesterol thanks to the power of beta-glucan – a soluble fiber, largely unique to oats, that basically tells your liver to pull LDL cholesterol out of the blood. Then, it binds to some of the cholesterol in your gut, keeping it from ever reaching your bloodstream.

Three grams of this beneficial fiber daily* are needed for this effect, and one bowl of Old Fashioned Quaker Oatmeal provides two of those grams.

Remember, a healthy diet isn’t the only factor to consider when concerns related to heart health arise. Everyone should know their cholesterol numbers and consult a health professional for advice on managing cholesterol and heart health.

*Three grams of oat soluble fiber daily as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

Eat for Your Heart

A healthy diet for your heart is one based on whole grains, fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy, lean poultry and fish, nuts and legumes, and non-tropical vegetables oils.

Red meat should be limited, along with saturated and trans fats, added sugar, and sodium. And since obesity is a risk factor for heart disease, calories matter. Keep things in moderation.
