Product Description

Our Super Deluxe Heart Healthy Birthday Basket is the perfect birthday gift for heart patients, those on a heart-healthy diet, or anyone concerned about heart health. Great for friends and family members with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or other risk factor for heart disease.

Heart health has many facets, and a variety of foods, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals are necessary to address each one.

Magnesium protects against heart disease and is also important for regulation of heart rhythm and blood clotting. In light of this evidence, we've included magnesium rich sources such as almonds and chocolate (yes, chocolate--it's also a good potassium and flavonoid source).

For a powerful cholesterol-fighting start to your day, try a breakfast of delicious steel cut oatmeal topped with flavonoid-rich dried blueberries. Flavonoid-rich foods lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by quenching harmful free radicals that contribute to atherosclerosis. Other great sources include broccoli, carrots, white grapefruit, chocolate, oranges, apples, lemons, pomegranates, limes, chocolate, soybeans, tomatoes, and onions. For an extra punch at breakfast, drink the Orange Veggie Flavored Vruit Juice.

Since fiber is such an important part of a heart healthy diet, we've included some delicious whole wheat pasta. For a delicious, cholesterol-lowering meal, try tossing the pasta with heart-healthy garlic and gourmet extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil helps control LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels.

Apples are also a great source of soluble fiber. For a heart-healthy snack, munch on the tasty dried apples.

Finally, no heart-healthy diet would be complete without the Omega-3 Fatty Acids found in salmon.
