Because salmon contains a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, it helps reduce the risk of arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm) and atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the arteries) and triglyceride levels.

Oatmeal is rich in soluble fiber and has the particularity of lowering cholesterol. They act like a sponge in the digestive system, absorbing cholesterol, thereby removing cholesterol from the body without being absorbed into the blood. Nutritionists recommend avoiding instant oatmeal because they usually contain sugar. It is best to choose old-fashioned or even quick-cooked oats.
