Heart Healthy Foods You Should Eat
To close my 14 days of Heart Healthy Foods I couldn't leave out cranberries!
The antioxidants in this food are great at improving heart health by lowering bad cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. According to the National Institutes of Health, cranberries are rich in an antioxidant compound, called polyphenols. Of all the antioxidants, polyphenols show the greatest promise to not only help improve circulation, but to also improve kidney function, hormone delivery, and waste filtration. And as a plant-based nutrient (phytonutrient), cranberries could serve as a natural way to prevent poor heart health. And here's another little tip, pure cranberry juice contains more powerful antioxidants than most other fruit juices!!! So grab a glass!
