The food choices you make can drastically affect your heart health. Keep your heart in good shape with choices that are tasty and healthy.
Tomatoes contain a solid dose of heart-healthy vitamin C and are rich in lycopene. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant, protecting your cells from damage which long term will maintain good heart health.
When you serve salmon you will keep your blood pumping and your heart in prime shape. Studies show consuming fish regularly each week is associated with a 30 percent lower risk of developing coronary heart disease over the long term. Cold water fish, such as salmon, contain omega-3 fats, lower levels of harmful lipid levels. Omega-3s also lower blood pressure slightly and can help prevent irregular heart rhythms, while also reducing inflammation throughout the body.
Inflammation in your artery walls can increase the risk of a heart attack. You can counter that process by eating some every day. Their inflammation-battling antioxidants are the heroes here. If you can’t find fresh ones, frozen berries work. I like to add them with my Greek yoghurt.
