[This competition has now closed] WIN: 1 of 4 Weet-Bix prize packs to help lower cholesterol

Weetbix Cholesterol Lowering
Stats show around 1 in 4 New Zealand adults need to manage their cholesterol levels for heart health; and I’m in their company. I’ve had high cholesterol throughout most of my adult life – possibly to do with my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or a genetic predisposition.

No matter how healthy my eating habits are and how much I exercise, my overall levels remain high. They’re not elevated enough to warrant taking medication for it (my total cholesterol ratio of ‘good’ HDL to overall cholesterol isn’t so bad; this is now being seen as potentially a more important measurement to be considered for health risks). However, I still like to eat plenty of fibre, I take a fish oil capsule every day, and I pay attention to products that contain cholesterol-lowering plant sterols.

Kiwi breakfast staple Weet-Bix has recently added a new product to their range, Weet-Bix Cholesterol Lowering wheat biscuits which contain 2 grams of plant sterols per serve. This can help reduce absorption of bad cholesterol in the digestive system. Here are a few ways to use them:

  • Layer crumbled Weet-Bix with yoghurt and fresh fruit for a breakfast trifle
  • Blend one into a smoothie (this can also help thicken the texture of your drink)
  • Eat as-is with fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and a small handful of nuts

New Weet-Bix Cholesterol Lowering wheat biscuits (RRP $7.69; 440g) are now available in supermarkets nationwide.

THE PRIZE:

Four winners will each receive 5x boxes of the new Weet-Bix Cholesterol Lowering wheat biscuits to help sort you out for breakfasts!
