Heart Health Extra Gift Basket
Heart-healthy foods join together to make up our Heart Health Gift Basket that's perfect for family and friends on heart-healthy diets.Magnesium
protects against heart disease and is also important for regulation of heart rhythm and blood clotting. In light of this evidence, we've included magnesium-rich almonds and dark chocolate (yes, chocolate--it's also a good potassium and flavonoid source). Vitamin E
, found in nuts, is associated with a reduced risk of coronary artery disease. It appears to protect the cholesterol in our blood from oxidative damage that contributes to heart disease.
Curb mid-morning or mid-afternoon cravings with flavonoid-rich blueberries. Flavonoid-rich foods lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by quenching harmful free radicals that contribute to atherosclerosis. Cherries
also make a great snack and are a wonderful source of pectin
, a soluble fiber that helps control blood cholesterol levels.
Since fiber is such an important part of a heart healthy diet, we've included a delicious whole wheat pasta to enjoy with the pasta with heart-healthy crunchy garlic nuggets and the included gourmet extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil
helps control LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels while garlic is helpful in lowering both blood pressure and cholesterol.
