Based on research published one month ago, it is becoming more clear that PRO-INFLAMMATORY DIETS increase risk of heart disease by 38% and high cholesterol while ANTI-INFLAMMATORY diets reduce the risk of heart disease.

So I wanted to share with you advice about PRO-INFLAMMATORY FOOD (=Not good for the heart) and ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOOD (= good for the heart).

NOT HEART HEALTHY

– Red meat, processed meat, and organ meat

– Refined carbohydrates such as white bread, white rice, and many desserts

– Sweetened beverages including colas and sports drinks.

HEART HEALTHY FOOD

FIBER

  • Fruits & vegetables
  • Beans, nuts and seeds

PHYTONUTRIENTS

  • Red, orange, and yellow vegetables and fruit
  • Dark green leafy veggies like kale, spinach
  • Spices: turmeric, curcumin, peppers, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, onions, etc.
  • Green tea and black coffee

HEALTHY FATS

  • Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (olive oil, canola oil, sesame oil)
  • Omega-3 fatty acids (fatty fish like salmon and mackerel)
  • Flaxseeds and walnuts

Thank you.
