Tuscany Tuna Fillets

Contributed by: NAPSA

A Daily Dose Of Love, Along With Diet And Exercise, Is What The Doctor Ordered For Heart Health (NAPSA) - Research shows that people who feel loved have substantially less blockage in their coronary arteries. But unfortunately, love doesn't conquer all when it comes to living a longer, healthier life. Experts agree that a diet rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables, tomatoes and lean fish, along with regular exercise, is necessary to maintain a healthy heart.

Tuscany Tuna Fillets
According to Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and Director of the non-profit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, "Studies show that eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean protein can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases. In addition, the omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water, deep-water fish such as tuna have been shown to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death by as much as 50-80 percent."

Following are some simple tips to help you eat your way to a healthier heart:

  • Just One More: Add just one more serving of fruit, vegetables and tomatoes daily, and one more serving weekly of tuna, to your diet to live a healthier life. Stock your pantry with convenient products from brands such as Del Monte and StarKist Tuna that deliver on nutrition and taste.

  • Add Soluble Fiber: Consuming soluble fiber, such as that found in carrots, beans and peas, decreases your LDL levels.

  • Eat More Tomatoes: The lycopene in tomatoes may reduce heart disease through anti-inflammatory properties, and research shows that lycopene is absorbed more efficiently in processed tomato products.
