Heart-Healthy KarimDavid.com

It’s of no surprise that a lot of people die because of heart disease. The good news is that it can be prevented, you know you’ve  got to exercise.. but what to eat?

Here’s a rundown of 5 ways to be good to your heart, and for keeping your heart healthy and strong.

 

Oatmeal Karimdavid.com

Oatmeal- Oatmeal packs a lot of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber absorbs water, which keeps us fuller for longer! Which also helps us lower LDL (Bad Cholesterol)

 

Salmon Karimdavid.com

Salmon- and other fatty fish are very rich in omega-3 fat. It is also known that people, who eat more foods containing omega-3 fats, have higher levels of HDL (Good Cholesterol) and lower levels of triglycerides (or fat found), in your blood.

 

Beans- KarimDavid.com

Beans- Just like Legumes, Peas and Lentils are rich in potassium and have been shown to help keep blood pressure levels in check. Also just like oatmeal, they are a great source of soluble fiber.

 

Tomato Karimdavid.com

Tomatoes- Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation in your body. Lower levels of inflammation help reduce the chance of getting stroke, heart attack and heart disease.

 

Spinach Karimdavid.com

Spinach- Really has it all when it comes to what your heart needs, including plenty of fiber, antioxidants and omega- 3 fatty acids. Spinach is rich in water-soluble B vitamin called “Folate”, which is important for building and maintaining your cells and making them healthy.

 

 

That’s it! Really simple I know.

I would love to hear from you guys!
