10 Heart Healthy Foods

Incorporate these foods into your diet to support a healthy heart.

According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and about 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. That’s one in every four deaths. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease. It kills more than 385,000 people annually and costs the United States $108.9 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.

With these scary stats in mind, there’s no better way to end Heart Health Month than by stocking your cabinets with foods that love your heart in return. Try some familiar favorites like oats and dark chocolate or add some variety with chard and sardines. There’s plenty to choose from when it comes to heart-healthy foods.
