Eat Right For a Healthy Heart
by Dru MacKerracher

Here is a list of common foods that will help support a healthy heart function.

Oats. High in antioxidants which brake up fat deposits in the arteries. Oats are also
high in soluble fiber which binds acids in your intestines and stops the reabsorption of
cholesterol.

Tea. Teas rich in antioxidants particularly Oolong tea which increases the size of LDL
particles inhibiting them from entering the blood stream and forming plaque.

Fat Rich Fish. Tryglyceride levels are lowered by the omega 3's in fish, improving
your heart beat.

Legumes lower LDL.

Grapefruit. Loaded with soluble fiber and antioxidants

Apples. Research has indicated that apples may slow the oxidation of LDL and
reduce the build up of plaque. Eating the whole fruit is better than just the juice. The
fiber helps maintain a healthy gastro-intestinal tract.

Red Wine. Phytochemicals in red wine can boost HDL levels. Its antioxidants assist
the protection of the coronary artery from damage by free radicals.

Nuts and Seeds. Almonds, Pistachios, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds
contain large quantities of plant sterols which help in the reduction of LDL.

Foods to avoid. The best way to keeping a healthy heart through diet is top avoid
saturated fat and trans fats. Trans fats are found in processed foods like biscuits,
crackers and chips. Saturated fats are found in butter, chocolate and the full fat
versions of butter, ice cream and yogurt.

Are you at risk from heart disease?
Even if you're young and fit if you
have a history of cardiovascular
disease in the family you could well
be at risk. Interestingly enough,
according to one recent Swedish
study if your mother had heart
disease your chances of getting it as
well go up by 43% compared to 17%
if your father is afflicted.

Firstly a word on cholesterol. There
are two types. Low Density
Lipoprotein LDL is the bad kind. High
Density Lipoprotein HDL is the good
kind.
