Doctors used to warn against eggs for heart issues, but research now shows they are good for you. Eggs boost good HDL cholesterol in your blood which can prevent the buildup of plaque.
Berries are full of fiber and antioxidants which we now know helps reduce plaque that clogs arteries. The Journal of the American Heart Association did a study that found that eating three servings of berries a week reduces the risk of a heart attack by a third in women.
Coffee beans also contain healthy antioxidants. Studies have shown that caffeine can also help your heart by making your blood vessels work more effectively.
Wine, in moderation, of course, may be good for your heart! Red wine, in particular, contains resveratrol that helps lower inflammation in the body and can help you appear ageless.
17. Green tea
If you aren’t much of a coffee drinker, rejoice that green tea is also great for your heart. A compound found in green tea called EGCG has been shown to shrink fatty deposits on your artery walls. It can also lower bad cholesterol.
