According to statistics, there are more than 120 million adults in the United States who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, many of these diseases are caused by a chaotic lifestyle and an unhealthy diet full of saturated and trans fats.

It has been shown that people who stick to a healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains, and less red meat are less likely to develop cardiovascular disease. Medical experts recommend that you focus more on improving your lifestyle and changing your diet, because physical exercise and a plant based diet can help lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels and prevent heart attacks, strokes and type 2 diabetes.

In addition, many studies have shown over time that exercise can have a big impact on reducing your risk of developing heart disease. So, all you have to do is to move your body regularly, whether you prefer walking, cycling, cardio or yoga. Medical experts recommend that everybody get at least 30 minutes of exercise at least five times a week.

A heart-healthy diet emphasizes produce, fiber-rich whole grains, fish, nuts, legumes, and lean proteins. It is low in saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, and added sugar.”

That being said, here are some healthy foods that you should eat more often to improve your heart health. Read on for more info!
