Heart Health – Heart Healthy Diet – Heart Healthy Tips – Heart Healthy Foods

For those of you who want a healthy heart, here are 6 more stellar superfoods:

Green Tea – This superstar elixir of good health provides one of the easiest, quickest, and most relaxing ways to infuse your arteries with protective antioxidants.  Antioxidants prevent bad cholesterol from building up in your arteries and keeps arteries functioning like a smooth-spinning top.  Freshly brewed tea has more antioxidant power than any other fruit or vegetable.


Dark Chocolate – This sweet indulgence is truly a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Dark chocolate is teaming with super-charged antioxidants called flavanols that tend to work magic on the cells that line your arteries, resulting in enhanced blood flow and lower blood pressure. For best results, enjoy a prudent portion (1/2 – 1 oz.) of high quality (60% or greater cacao content) dark chocolate regularly.  More>>
