National Cholesterol Month October 2020

How much do you know about cholesterol?

Test your knowledge for a free download of our Easy Mini-Guide to Cholesterol, with loads of helpful tips, heart-healthy recipes and information about how to get your cholesterol levels checked, what the results mean and how to keep a healthier cholesterol level.


We all need some cholesterol in our bodies just to keep us ticking over, but having too much can clog up your arteries and lead to health problems in the future.

By getting a simple cholesterol test and making positive lifestyle changes, most people can keep their cholesterol levels healthy. So, this National Cholesterol Month 'Let's Talk About Cholesterol'.

The Great Cholesterol Challenge

If you are looking for a challenge this October, why not take on our “Great Cholesterol Challenge”*. Being active is a major part of looking after your cholesterol levels, keeping your heart healthy and helping to prevent heart disease. Walk, cycle, run or swim 100 miles in October and get sponsored to help raise vital funds for HEART UK.


*PLEASE NOTE:  By completing the challenge you are doing this at your own risk and the charity cannot be held responsible for any injury caused. Read our terms and conditions here.
