Here, you may have noticed a heart formed seal on your box of oatmeal recently; the seal is there because oats contain beta-glucan, a type of fiber that’s been shown to help lower cholesterol when eaten regularly.

Just avoid the seasoned kinds, which can be packed with sugar, instead sweeten your bowl with milk and a bit of honey and top with nuts and fruit.
