News in brief from the world of cardiology
For UK healthcare professionals only
Kellogg’s Optivita and H·E·A·R·T UK, the cholesterol charity, have teamed up to work together on a programme of joint actions. This will include educational initiatives to support healthcare professionals, particularly practice nurses and dietitians who see people everyday at risk of heart disease due to factors such as high cholesterol, and the provision of practical advice for consumers to help them lower their cholesterol.
Optivita has been specifically developed with oat beta-glucan, which has been shown in many studies to help to lower cholesterol.
