"Betaglukan fiber, can be found in processed grain products, known as oats or oatmeal. Like jelly oat fiber that can bind fat in the blood and threw it across the land," said a clinical nutrition specialist in Central Pertamina Hospital (RSPP), Dr. Fatma RD Kusuma.

Do not stop there, research conducted in the United States found that fiber from oats or wheat is soluble fiber may reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol without lowering HDL (good cholesterol).

"The glikemi oat fiber also contain low. Thus, oats are very good for diabetics because the level of blood sugar produced after eating very low," he said again.

The process of blood vessel obstruction is happening faster when more people apply unhealthy lifestyles, such as frequently ate fast food, soft drinks or sweetened drinks too often, and not balanced with white water and rarely exercise.

Other sources of fiber than wheat is also found in avocado, grapes, apples, strawberries and oranges. Avocados contain glutathione and beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids to neutralize free radicals and destructive nature of the fat in the body.

In wine there, like the flavonoids quercetin and catechin serves to facilitate blood flow, preventing the oxidation of bad cholesterol and reduce plaque formation in blood vessels. "Vitamin C in the wine also can neutralize free radicals," he said again.

Whereas a lot of apple pectin contains the type of fiber helps to lower levels of beneficial blood cholesterol. Pectin binds cholesterol foods such as milk, meat and eggs as well as help to stay in the intestine.
