Love avocado on toast? Great! They’re packed full of potassium that is good for helping to control blood pressure.
These citrus fruits contain hesperidin, which help to protect the arteries and maintain a stable blood pressure.
Salmon, mackerel and sardines are great oily fishes rich in omega-3 fatty acids making them great healthy heart foods. Omega-3 fatty acids have been show to lower the risk of plaque build up in the arteries, which when it builds up can cause a blockage.
We’re talking walnuts, pistachios, peanuts and almonds that are a great source of healthy fats and fibre, which are good for your heart if eaten as part of a balanced diet.
Dark Leafy Greens
