Product Description

Our Super Deluxe Low-Sodium Heart Health Basket is especially designed for heart patients on a sodium-restricted diet or for anyone interested in watching their sodium intake. The sodium-free and low-sodium foods included have been chosen specifically for their ability to promote heart health--and each one proves that a heart-healthy diet can be absolutely delicious!

Heart health has many facets, and a variety of foods, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals are necessary to address each one.

Magnesium protects against heart disease and is also important for regulation of heart rhythm and blood clotting. In light of this evidence, we've included magnesium rich sources such chocolate (yes, chocolate--it's also a good potassium and flavonoid source), and almonds. The almonds we've included are all-natural, flavored roasted almonds developed by a real physician. Delicious and nutritious without cholesterol, preservatives, added oils, or salt!

Cherries are a wonderful source of pectin, a soluble fiber that helps control blood cholesterol levels. To reap the benefits of these delicious, juicy fruits, we've included Cherry De-Lites Dried Cherries..

For a powerful cholesterol-fighting start to your day, try a breakfast of delicious steel cut oatmeal topped with flavonoid-rich dried blueberries. Flavonoid-rich foods lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by quenching harmful free radicals that contribute to atherosclerosis. Other great sources include broccoli, carrots, white grapefruit, chocolate, oranges, apples, lemons, pomegranates, limes, chocolate, soybeans, tomatoes, and onions.

Since fiber is such an important part of a heart healthy diet, we've included some delicious whole wheat pasta. For an especially delicious treat, try tossing the pasta with Emelia's Special Sauce--a blend of heart-healthy olive oil and antioxidant-rich herbs and spices. Olive oil helps control LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
