Managing diet and lifestyle to improve heart health and specifically manage cholesterol requires a multi-targeted approach.

The Heart Foundation website has up to date position papers on the key dietary and lifestyle goals for managing heart health. There are also a number of fact sheets and education reources that can be used to provide to clients.

On this site we have provided some specific information on HeartActive® and the role plant sterol can play in helping your clients manage their cholesterol and heart health.
