Foods to keep heart healthy.

Heart disease kills many in a year. In fact, more men die from heart disease alone than all cancers combined, making it the Killer.

But you can lower your risk and eating a heart-healthy diet is a good place to start. 
Load up on these five foods today will help you in keeping your heart healthy.


Orange you glad this citrus fruit is so good for you? Though we typically turn to oranges for cold prevention, 
this fruit is also a great food for your heart, thanks to two different nutrients: pectin and potassium. Pectin, a soluble fiber, 
basically blocks cholesterol absorption and helps prevent the scarring of heart tissue, while potassium can help keep blood pressure in check.


These versatile legumes contain more protein than any other plant food just one cup provides a quarter of what we need each day. 
They also provide heart-healthy and stress-busting B vitamins, iron, and all-important calcium. 
Plus, they are considered "nature's scrub brush" because one serving's 15 grams of fiber goes through the intestines and sops cholesterol and takes it away (you know where).


Research shows yogurt may protect against gum disease. Left unchecked, gum disease may elevate a person’s risk for heart disease.


Oatmeal is high in soluble fiber, which can lower cholesterol

Avoiding instant oatmeal, which often contains sugar, and heading instead for old-fashioned or even quick-cooking oats. 

Other whole grains such as bread, pasta and grits are also good for the heart as long as they still contain the entire grain.

Dark Chocolate

Chocoholics, rejoice! Because of the flavonoids antioxidants that can help suppress Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol present in chocolate, 
indulging in a square or two may decrease your risk of stroke (Experts recommend sticking to one ounce per day, two to three times per week).
