7 Foods That Can Help Prevent Heart Disease

Recent studies have shown that out of every 10 people, eight could be on a path to heart disease. The main reason why this is so in our generation is mainly because of the kind of foods we eat daily.

This  statistic can be turned around only if people take their diet and nutrition seriously. Heart disease can be prevented today simply by eating more foods that are heart healthy.

Consider the following 7 heart healthy foods if you’re really interested in greatly lowering your chances of having heart disease.

1. Black Chocolate


Chances are that you’ve heard that chocolates are good for you heart’s health. Well it’s actually pure black chocolates to be more specific. A nine-year study was done on Heart failure and it was discovered that women who ate one to two servings of high-quality chocolate per week had a 32 percent lower risk of developing heart failure than those who didn’t. And it was discovered that this was because cocoa contains polyphenols and flavanols, which are anti-inflammatory compounds that help protect the heart.

It is important that you carefully choose the type of chocolate you eat. If you’re really serious about having a healthier heart, don’t eat any chocolate that has under 60 percent pure cocoa.

2. Tomatoes



Funnily we were told as kids to eat tomatoes because it’s good for our hearts, probably because of its color. That was just one of the ways our mothers got us to eat our vegetables. However, they weren’t wrong about tomatoes being good for our hearts. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that is very nutritious for the heart. Researchers suggest that a regular intake of lycopene-rich tomatoes greatly lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, skin damage and certain cancers.

3. Walnuts


Walnuts, as delicious as they taste, also contain a lot of healthy nutrients for our hearts. They contain a lot of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that can massively reduce the risk of heart disease.

4. Whole grains

Whole grains

Whole grains contain a substantial amount of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, phytochemical compounds, and fibers which when combined together protects the heart in ways we can’t even imagine. All you need to do is to simply replace your everyday white bread with bread containing whole grains.

5. Green tea

Green tea


Green tea is not only helpful for weight loss and improving your mood, but it is also helpful at protecting your heart.
Studies show that people who drink no less than two cups of green tea a day have a 16 percent lower risk of having heart disease than those who do.

6. Garlic



Lots of people use garlic a lot because of the flavor it adds to foods. However, garlic doesn’t only give your food more taste, but also contains a compound called allicin which studies have shown, can help lower blood cholesterol.

7. Salmon


Salmon and other fatty fish are really healthy for your heart. This is because they are very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which studies have shown greatly reduces the risk of heart disease. Replace meat with fish in your diet if you’re really interested in your heart’s health.
