Product Description

A healthy heart...what could be more important? A diagnosis or family history of heart disease requires lifestyle changes to regain or retain heart health. This thoughtful basket not only shows you really care, but also educates the recipient on how certain foods can help the heart. The Super Deluxe Heart Health Basket is also a perfect gift for yourself once you've decided to make important heart-healthy dietary changes.

Heart health has many facets, and a variety of foods, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals are necessary to address each one.

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 sources such as almonds and chocolate (yes, chocolate--it's also a good potassium and flavonoid source).

Cherries are a wonderful source of pectin, a soluble fiber that helps control blood cholesterol levels. To reap the benefits of these delicious, juicy fruits, we've included dried cherries in our dried fruit and nut mix.

For a powerful cholesterol-fighting start to your day, try a breakfast of delicious steel cut oatmeal topped with flavonoid-rich dried blueberries. Flavonoid-rich foods lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by quenching harmful free radicals that contribute to atherosclerosis. Other great sources include broccoli, carrots, white grapefruit, chocolate, oranges, apples, lemons, pomegranates, limes, chocolate, soybeans, tomatoes, and onions. For an extra punch at breakfast, drink the Orange Veggie Flavored Vruit Juice.

Flaxseeds may lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease, and control high blood pressure, so we've included delicious flaxseed cookies that are great for snacking or dessert.

Since fiber is such an important part of a heart healthy diet, we've included some delicious high-fiber pasta that tastes just like regular pasta! For an especially delicious treat, try tossing the pasta with heart-healthy garlic and olive oil. Olive oil helps control LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels.

Finally, no heart-healthy diet would be complete without the Omega-3 Fatty Acids found in salmon and walnuts.
