Maintaining heart health isn’t all about cutting foods out. Adding soy protein, such as tofu, unsaturated fats and antioxidants from nuts, beta-glucan fibre from oats and omega-3 fatty acids from oily fish can help reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
If you’ve already got high cholesterol, then try adding foods fortified with plant sterols and stanols.
Choosing foods low in saturated fat and sodium will keep your heart pumping and help you enjoy life for longer.
