Best supplements for the heart: The 17p a day capsules to protect against high cholesterol

The exact type of fibre capsules to look out for is psyllium supplements, according to University Hospitals.

Psyllium produces a thick gel in the gut that traps bile acid, and gets rid of it in your stools.

The liver subsequently gets rid of excess cholesterol in the blood, in order to make more bile acid.

Reducing the amount of cholesterol in your blood vessels could lower your risk of high blood pressure and heart attacks.

Cardiologist Dr Daniel Simon, from the University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, said: “We are also seeing other benefits with this product, such as blood pressure lowering and reductions in markers of blood sugar elevation in patients with diabetes.

“When patients find out they can have these kinds of benefits from a natural fibre product, most people say, ‘I’m game, I’m in’,.

“I really can’t think of a downside to using this product. It’s convenient, it’s easy to use and it will help you get more fibre in your diet, which most of us are lacking.

“Plus, it has the potential to reduce coronary heart disease as a consequence of lowering cholesterol.”

High cholesterol is the name given to having too much of a fatty substance in your blood. This substance, known as cholesterol, can lead to blockages in your blood vessels.

Blocked blood vessels raises the risk of heart attacks and strokes, as it limits the blood supply to the heart and the rest of the body.

It’s not always easy to know whether you have high cholesterol, as there aren’t any obvious symptoms.

You should speak to a doctor if you’re worried about your cholesterol levels.

High cholesterol may be caused by eating lots of fatty foods, or by not doing enough exercise.

Obesity, smoking, and drinking lots of alcohol, all contribute to your cholesterol levels.

Medication can help to keep your cholesterol levels in check, but it’s also important to stick to a healthy diet, and to do regular exercise.

Everyone should aim to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day, as well as 150 minutes of exercise every week.
