Heart-Healthy Foods

Keep this short + sweet list in mind to support your cardiovascular system (that’s all your blood vessels like arteries and veins, plus your heart of course!).

  • Berries – blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mulberries, blackberries, etc. Rich in antioxidants and polyphenols to help clean up oxidative stress and damage. Choose organic and/or local whenever possible to minimize pesticide exposure.
  • Wild-caught salmon – a good source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Limit to 1x/wk to minimize exposure to heavy metals.
  • Walnuts – the best nut source for healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Garlic – contains antioxidants and antimicrobial properties.
  • Dark leafy greens – spinach, kale, collards, chard, etc. Loaded with antioxidants and bioflavonoids to nourish you. Caution if you’re on blood-thinning medication – discuss with your doctor before changing your intake if so.
