Winter Vegetable Lasagne - Lower your Cholesterol with Flora ProActiv

High cholesterol is a major risk to heart disease as it contributes to the narrowing of vital arteries which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.  There are no obvious signs or symptoms with high cholesterol and HEART UK and Flora ProActiv are urging people to get their cholesterol level checked out.

If you do happen to have a high level of cholesterol the good news for most people is, there are simple and effective ways to lower cholesterol which include changes to diet and lifestyle.  Eating healthier, including super cholesterol busting food like plant sterols and getting more active helps lower cholesterol and most people will see an effect in as little as 3 weeks.

Simple diet changes are often all you need, check out this Winter Vegetable Lasagne recipe by Flora ProActiv.

Facts about Cholesterol:
  • Over half the population of England have high cholesterol? 
  • High cholesterol is invisible, it has no symptoms but is a major risk factor for heart disease.
  • One in every two people in England having elevated cholesterol, it’s vital to get checked and keep your heart healthy.
  • Do you know your number?  Ask your GP or local pharmacist and get checked out now.
Heart disease is the UK’s biggest killer so HEART UK and Flora ProActiv teamed up to bring the effects of cholesterol on the arteries to life.

Last month was Heart Month; Flora ProActiv and HEART UK disrupted journeys on the London Underground.  Take a look at this short video - they made the invisible visible by using cumbersome men in yellow suits to impact the arteries of a major transport system.

So don't delay, get your cholesterol level checked today!

Disclosure; I was sent supermarket vouchers to cover my time and cost of ingredients to make the recipe.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
