Why are Superfoods Considered to be Heart Healthy?

Thanks to ongoing studies in the medical science communities, the list of healthy attributes awarded to superfoods is constantly expanding. From broadening brain function to boosting the immune system to helping aid recovery, superfoods are well recognized as top-notch tools of wellness, delivering valuable nutrients essential for optimum living. Among these virtues, one of the most widely discussed accolades is heart health – a benefit for which many superfoods are quite sought after. But one look at the state of our country’s health and this popularity is easily explained.

A Few Sobering Facts

Every 40 seconds, an American dies from heart disease, which equals almost 2,200 deaths a day. More than 7% of all Americans have experienced some type of cardiovascular disease and more than 7 million Americans have had a heart attack. What’s more, one out of every six deaths in the United States is linked to heart disease, ranking it the number one source of fatalities in the country. These numbers don’t need to be that high, as heart disease is preventable – and even treatable – through positive habits.

 

Eliminating the Disease
Human-based studies have shown that heart disease is virtually eliminated through the control of just three factors: cholesterol, smoking and blood pressure. That means that two out of three imperative components of a healthy heart are largely dependent on a healthy diet, along with movement and stress regulation. Plant-based diets in general are an enormous step in the right direction to enhancing coronary health and lowering blood pressure, and superfoods, with their saturation of important nutrients, can help expedite this process even further.
