Heart-Healthy Diet Directory
For a healthy heart, diet is very important. A diet filled with sugar, salt, and fat can do irreparable damage to your heart. Fish are rich in omega-3s, vegetables and fruits provide vitamins and minerals, whole grains bring fiber to your diet, and a bit of red wine in moderation can also help your heart. Your doctor can help you determine if there are foods you should avoid or certain foods you should eat more of.
