fish oil for heart disease

The best way to slash your chances of heart disease is to eat fish, particularly fatty fish, such as mackerel, sardines, salmon and tuna, which are overflowing with omega 3 fatty acids.

If you have had a heart attack, do not waste any more time and go on a high-fish diet immediately. This strategy works better than the traditional advise to cut down on saturated fats... read more info on fish oils


beans and heart disease

Replacing 90 percent of red meat in your diet with a variety of beans could reduce your chances of developing a heart condition or dying from it.

The reason for this is not only their great fibre content but also their high degree of antioxidant protection, especially found in richly coloured dried beans... read more about beans


onions and garlic for heart disease

Onions and garlic are very important elements of a Mediterrenean diet and are essential in preventing and/or treating cardiovascular problems.

While eating these bulbs raw is super for the heart, cooked onions and garlic also contain cardioprotective compounds. Add these healing foods liberally to your diet. Read more about onions... and also about garlic's healing power


heart healthy nuts

Eating a few nuts every day is an excellent antidote to cardiovascular disease. They are rich in fibre, monounsaturated olive oil-type of fats and packed with various antioxidants.

olive oil for heart disease

Many studies find that the monounsaturated fats in olive oil can substantially reduce the risk of heart disease mainly because they soothe inflammation, reduce oxidation and free radical damage, and lower cholesterol levels.

If you have already had a heart attack, switching to olive oil to make your scrumbled eggs, to dip bread into, to whip up a quick salad dressing or sautée chicken breasts, will make your heart less vulnerable to future problems... read more about the healing power of olive oil


treat heart disease with fruits and vegetable

Most of the healing foods for heart disease are found amongst fruits and vegetables.

In fact, devouring fruits and vegetables can slash your chances of heart attacks and strokes, even if you have already suffered one. If everyone who has had a heart attack went on a high fruit and vegetable diet, countless lives could be saved.

Such diet could halt and even reverse arterial damage and keep the arteries unclogged and healthy, probably due to their high antioxidant content... read more about how to treat heart disease with fruits and vegetables


read wine for heart disease

You might not think of wine as being one of the healing foods for heart disease, but many studies show that a moderate amount of wine - one 5-ounce glass per day for women and two for men - actually lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease. Beer and liquor don't have the same effect.

Compounds found in red wine help blood vessels to dilate and block production of other chemicals that can lead to build-up of plaque on artery walls... read more on wine for heart disease


green tea and heart disease

Green tea seems to have amazing and diverse pharmacological activity, mainly due to its catechin content, which act as anticoagulant and artery protector.

Tea drinkers appear to have less atherosclerosis and fewer stroke. Find out how all this is possible... read more on green tea and heart disease
