Cardiologist Explains What Foods to Eat for Heart Health

In the case of hypertension (high blood pressure), in addition to medication, in the early stages of the disease, you can improve the condition by following a number of rules related to nutrition. This was stated by the famous cardiologist Tamaz Gagloshvili.

According to him, it is necessary, first of all, to reduce the amount of salt in the body, to give up the main provocateur of cardiovascular diseases – smoking, and to include in the diet foods that contain enough fiber.

“You need to get enough fiber. It is found in green foods, buckwheat, oatmeal, and lentils. I want to dispel the myth that it is difficult to get fiber out of season, or that you can find products with a lot of it, but for a lot of money. So, ordinary cabbage contains a huge amount of fiber,” the doctor said.

Gagloshvili clarified that cabbage is an excellent source of dietary fiber if there are no problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

The more fiber in the diet, the lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and the lower the risk of hypertension progression, the cardiologist summarized.

Earlier, doctors claimed that salmon is a potential breeding ground for the Chinese coronavirus COVID-19. The infection in its meat can be viable for more than eight days
