When it comes to preventing heart disease and all other cardiovascular diseases, the best thing to do is eat a healthy nutrient rich diet, while also maintaining an active lifestyle. A lack of exercise, as well as a poor diet and other unhealthy habits, such as excessive drinking or cigarette smoking, can quickly take their toll over time. Listed below are some of the best foods to incorporate into your diet to encourage a healthy heart:
Leafy Green Vegetables: Everyone knows green vegetables are good for your health but why? Leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale are well-known for their high levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Consuming large amounts of leafy greens in your diet can help to fight against heart disease.
Antioxidant Rich Berries: Berries are not only delicious, they’re healthy! Incorporating strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries into your diet is an excellent way to get important nutrients that your body craves. Additionally, berries are rich in antioxidants which protect oxidative stress and inflammation.
Fatty Fish & Fish Oils: Fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna, are all heart healthy, lean proteins that help to promote heart health. Replacing red meat with fish a few times a week can be extremely helpful for those looking to lower their risk of heart disease.
Pairing a healthy diet with physical activity and routine check-ups from your physician can help you to get the results you are looking for.
