Critical in lowering the risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia.
  5. Nuts recommended as a heart healthy food, by the American Heart Association, offer a great source of unsaturated fats, offering benefits similar to olive oil.  They are also a source of concentrated vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, including antioxidants.
  6. Red Wine – Drinking red wine in moderation protects against heart disease.  Red Wine has been the focus of many studies and research.  Containing resveratrol, a compound that contributes to its benefits, may assist in the activation of genes that slow the cellular aging process.
