Add 5 to 10 grams of soluble fiber a day

Soluble fiber helps trap cholesterol in the digestive tract so that it passes through your body rather than getting into your bloodstream. Just to make sure I get ample fiber for the day I always make sure my breakfast is high in fiber as breakfast foods are easy to plan out that way.

Supplement with Tribulus Terrestris

Will Tribulus Terrestris boost your testosterone? Probably not but it will increase your libido and possibly erection strength too. Plus another benefit is that it may actually help lower your cholesterol.

That’s pretty dang amazing to me so I think you should supplement with it just for that reason alone if you are a man!
