If you’re concerned about heart health it’s a good idea to avoid low fat diets, alcohol, refined foods, grains and artificial fats. Too many grains, such as rice & quinoa, can be harmful because they contain phytates, which bind on to essential nutrients such as zinc and manganese and prevent their absorption. These nutrients are needed to produce powerful antioxidants.

Ingredient Benefit
Berries contain soluble fibre, which lowers cholesterol plus powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals.
Kale & spinach contain fibre and antioxidants and they also lower enzymes that contribute to heart disease.
Almonds & sesame seeds contain calcium required for the action of the heart muscle.
Oat bran, pumpkin seeds & spinach contain magnesium, which is involved with heart muscle contraction and also helps to lower blood pressure.
Avocado, cucumber & apricots contain potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure.
Nuts & avocado contain essential fatty acids which help to thin the blood, plus they’re both high in vitamin E, which helps to lower levels of saturated fats. Nuts also contain zinc which is an essential antioxidant.
Spinach helps to lower homocysteine levels. Homocysteine interferes with enzymes that will affect elasten and collagen that will therefore damage arteries. Effectively homosytene affects enzymes that are needed for the integrity of arteries. It also contains folic acid and B6, which help lower homocysteine.
Probiotic help the excretion of cholesterol from the body.
Blackcurrants & strawberries contain vitamin C, which helps to lower cholesterol. They are also powerful antioxidants and help to convert fat into energy, preventing fat build up and atherosclerosis.
Coconut water contains bioactive enzymes that aid digestion, is full of potassium and is also good for a bit of extra flavour.
