Six superfoods for a healthy heart

Heart disease is one of the most common causes of death among both and women. With so much being said and written on how to prevent the disease, one would imagine that the number of deaths caused by it would be drastically reduced. Unfortunately, that is not the case, as elaborate diets, excessive work out regimes and diligent weight control often seem like too much work. For those of you who are too lazy to incorporate massive changes into their lifestyles to prevent heart disease, begin including a few of these superfoods into your diet. Not only are these foods easily available, they are also relatively easy to consume. Sardines: An excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and niacin, sardines, when eaten in moderation, help prevent major heart disease Oatmeal: This wondrous food is full of fiber and provides lasting energy throughout the day, killing ravenous hunger pangs   Walnuts: For an easy and quick omega-3 boost, consume a handful of walnuts as a midday snack. Despite the fact that they may be high in fat, the fat is only polyunsaturated, in other words "good fat" Plums: Plums are one fruit renowned for their laxative capabilities. Not only is this fruit a good source of fiber and iron, it also reduces the LDL cholesterol in the blood with regular consumption Kidney beans: Kidney beans are a low-fat, highly soluble source of protein, alongside being cholesterol-free and having a low glycemic index. This perfect health food is truly a wonder Chickpeas: Chickpeas are extremely high in fiber and have multiple heart benefits. Not only does a bowl of chickpeas provide a comforting meal, it also helps keep your heart in good condition
