Cholesterol-Fighting Foods: Garlic

The ancients knew there was something special in this little bulb; in modern times garlic has been found to lower cholesterol, prevent blood clots, reduce blood pressure and protect against infections. It can also stop artery-clogging plaque at its earliest stage.

Chop up and toss on pizza, in soups, or on side dishes.

Aim for 2-4 cloves per day.
