Heart Health – Your Life Depends on It!

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability, with nearly one-third of all deaths worldwide attributed to heart disease, but it doesn’t need to be this way. We can improve our quality of life by eating healthier, staying active and not smoking. Celebrate World Heart Day by making a promise to live a better and more heart-healthy life. Your diet plays a major role in heart health and can impact your risk of heart disease. Certain foods can influence blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol levels and inflammation, all of which are risk factors for heart disease. Suggested foods to maximize your heart health include leafy green vegetables, whole grains, avocados, berries, fatty fish and omega-3 fatty acids, beans and legumes, tomatoes, walnuts, almonds, seeds, green tea, olive oil. and even dark chocolate!
