8 Great Foods For Your Heart

By Dr. Daryl Gioffre 

Happy Heart Health Month! You should be maintaining a heart-healthy diet year-round, but if it weren’t for the packages at the grocery store advertising “heart healthy,” would you know what to pick up?

You might be familiar with a few foods notoriously known for heart health — salmon, dark chocolate and red wine, for instance — but many of the foods on that popular list are also high in acid.

Eating healthy for your heart doesn’t mean you have to compromise your body’s pH balance. A low-acid, high-alkaline and plant-based lifestyle is naturally heart healthy, helping to lower cholesterol, control blood sugar levels and combat heart disease. You don’t need red wine for that! Scroll through above to find out what foods are best for your heart and promote alkalinity.
