Corazonas tortilla chips, potato chips and oatmeal squares are all made with plant sterols, natural plant products that help lower cholesterol. In addition, the oatmeal squares are based on oats—another natural cholesterol-lowering food. The company has initiated a 28-day cholesterol challenge to help you lower your cholesterol. The challenge recommends that you have your cholesterol tested before and after the 28-day period, during which you eat 1 ounce of Corazonas chips and 1 oatmeal square a day. If your total cholesterol number does not go down, the company will refund the price of your Corazonas snacks.
Though we are not recommending eating chips every day, this challenge is intriguing and may be just the jumping off point you need to make some necessary diet changes. We’d also recommend that you look at The Cholesterol Counter, 7th edition, to help you keep your good intentions on track.
September is National Cholesterol Month. Do you know your number?
