In brief: Cholesterol
Plenty of fiber (fruits/veggies/supplements/oatmeal) can help remove dietary cholesterol from the gut & thus lower serum cholesterol.
Niacin and fish oil (dha & epa) are also helpful in lowering cholesterol.

In brief: Red yeast rice
Eating better is the most important part of lowering ldl.
Be plant based, eat lean protein, avoid dairy, limit sugar & eat whole grains. Supplements you can try are red yeast rice, plant sterols, fish oil, & fiber.
