Foods that Will Help Prevent Heart Attacks!

This are the lists of food that may help you prevent heart attacks. This food are actually proven to help prevent any heart attacks in the future. This wonderful article is courtesy of Bottom Line Health and DJ Tesh of 93.1 FM.

1. Salmon- is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and make your blood less “sticky.” This prevents plaque – fatty deposits – from clogging your arteries. The American Heart Association recommends eating six to nine ounces of salmon each week.

2. Spinach-It has a lot of folate – one of the B vitamins. Folate helps prevent the build-up of homo-cystine - a certain type of amino acid in the blood that’s a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Two cups of cooked spinach have the recommended daily value you need. Just make sure it’s fresh or frozen.

3. Pomegranates-will help prevent heart attacks. That’s because they’re loaded with polyphenols. These are antioxidants that help maintain cardiovascular health by scooping up free radicals before they damage your arteries.
