If you want a healthier heart, reach for red foods. No we don’t mean red meat, but veggies and fruits. If you haven’t heard of anthocyanins, they are the red pigments that have flavonoids in them.
The foods with anthocyanins? Acai, cranberries, Montmorency tart cherries, red cabbage, blood oranges, raspberries, and some not so red foods like eggplant, black raspberries, concord grapes, wild blueberries and more.
It turns out that anthocyanins help reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and related death. That miracle pigment can improve cholesterol, blood pressure and is being looked at for reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes.
