Eat well to help your heart

2. Fish and Omega-3s
2. Fish and Omega-3s

Omega-3s are a superstar fat that can protect your heart and may improve your blood cholesterol profile. The best place to find omega-3s are in fish and fish oil. Go for fatty fish, such as mackerel, herring, sardines and salmon, because they have a high concentration of omega-3s. (Just be sure to bake or grill the fish, not fry it). The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (especially the fatty kind) at least two times a week. Not a seafood fan? Soy foods (including tofu), walnuts and flaxseeds contain a plant form of omega-3s.
