With heart disease being the number one cause of death in the United States, individuals spend countless hours with their doctor or trying on their own to figure out how to lower their cholesterol and ultimately keep their heart healthy.
Whether it is a new food that is considered a breakthrough find or a new medication that limits side effects but works efficiently at keeping your heart healthy, the search seemingly never ends to find a close to perfection as you can in relationship to staving off any signs of heart disease.
One super food that seemingly comes to the forefront as being a front runner for not only heart disease but cancer are those filled with antioxidants. Specifically, foods like raspberries, strawberries and cranberries work wonders for the body and boosting your immune system. Those who suffers from diseases that suppress your immune system have to pay particular attention to making sure to include servings of those aforementioned fruits into their daily regimen of delicacies.
Grapes also have chemical compound that remain healthy for the heart and liver, suggesting that the "apple a day" mentality needs rethought. Grapes commonly are found in wine, which says that the daily glass of wine you have (or aren't having) is actually doing more good than harm. Of course, moderation still remains the main event as it relates to wine but assuming that alcohol of that ilk isn't going to do you any favors from a health perspective are totally inaccurate.
That doesn't mean dinner should include polishing off an entire bottle, but a glass has not only the heart healthy compound but cancer fighting properties. Grapes, to their credit, lower blood sugar levels and limit the amount of fat that attaches to your liver, both paramount in not only feeling well but living a longer, healthier and more productive life.
