Grains of barley are another great source of fibre which has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease caused by high levels of cholesterol.

According to one study, men that ate a diet high in whole grain barley saw an improvement in their cholesterol levels after five weeks, reports Holland and Barrett.

“Partly due to its fibre and protein content, including barley as part of your diet could be the key if your goal is to shed some pounds,” explains the health body.

“Research suggested that people lost weight and felt less hungry when they ate barley fibre for six weeks.”
