Another study in 24 people with high blood lipid levels observed that consuming a diet with high oleic sunflower oil for eight weeks led to significant increases in HDL (good) cholesterol, compared with a diet without sunflower oil.
This is in line with other findings, which have led the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve a qualified health claim for high oleic sunflower oil and products with a similar fatty acid composition.
In addition to making healthier dietary decisions, exercising regularly plays a key role in reducing cholesterol.
According to the NHS, you should aim to do at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of exercise a week to reap the benefits.
