10 Heart-Healthy Foods

When it comes to helping the body run well, eating the proper foods is important. The heart needs all of the support it can get to continue pumping blood efficiently. A person’s blood flow is how oxygen and other important nutrients get transported to various parts of the body. This means that being educated on the right foods to eat for proper heart health can be very beneficial in the long run.

Whether they are strawberries, blueberries, acai berries, or many others, berries in general are known for promoting heart health. Most berries are known for being high in fiber and rich in Vitamin C, which are both great for helping the body function normally. On top of this, some berries are known for widening the arteries, which helps blood flow through them more efficiently.

Incorporating berries into meals is easily done. Mix them into cereal or yogurt to start the day off on a healthy note. Otherwise, baking them into a pie or crisp is a fun way to incorporate them into a meal when a few extra calories can be afforded. If all else fails, most berries are delicious eaten plain.
