Healthy heart

A healthy heart is a happy heart ❤

Keep these tips in mind not just in February for heart health month, but year round!

A heart healthy diet includes five servings of veggies each day that include:

Potassium – to counterbalance sodium. Good sources are crimini mushrooms, spinach and swiss chard.

Antioxidants – to protect the heart and keep implementation at bay. Most veggies are a good source.

Garlic – lowers triglycerides and total cholesterol by 5 – 15%. But garlic’s biggest asset is its unique set of sulfur-containing compounds that protect blood cells and vessels from inflammatory and oxidative stress.

Do you have any tips you’d like to share?
