Eat as many of these heart healthy foods as you can! & make sure you’re getting enough of these essential nutrients â€“ Anti-oxidants (especially vitamins C & E and lycopene), Vitamin A, Vitamin D (get out in the sun a little!), B vitamins, Omega 3s (fish, fish oil, flaxseed oil), CoQ10, magnesium, niacin, potassium, and zinc.
Acai berries, almonds, apples, apple cider vinegar, asparagus, avocado, banana, beans, blueberries, broccoli, brown rice, carrots, cashews, cayenne, cherries (dark), chocolate – dark, cranberries, flax seed, fruit, garlic, greens â€“ dark, green tea, fish, oatmeal, olive oil, onions, red bell peppers, potatoes, pumpkin, red wine, spinach, sweet potatoes, watermelon, whole grains
That’s a diet that’s easy to live with, isn’t it? Lots of good stuff!
Alcohol â€“ 1 drink a day for women, and up to 2 a day for men has been shown to reduce risk of heart disease.
I drink my cranberry juice to keep my arteries clear. I love almost all of the foods on the heart healthy list, and make sure to take vitamins – including CoQ10.
If you just focus on taking care of your heart, everything else will just fall in place. That makes things pretty easy, doesn’t it? 😉
