Lera Lavsky advised eating wild-caught redfish at least three times a week, as well as flax seeds and pine nuts.

Cardiovascular diseases are among the top three causes of death in the world. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain vascular health. Nutritionist and nutritionist Lera Lavsky told us which foods are most beneficial for the heart and blood vessels.

The expert recommended monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol levels. “Vitamin C, which is most commonly found in rose hips, sauerkraut, black currant, and kiwi, will help strengthen the walls of blood vessels,” Lavsky advised.

“Omega-3 fatty acids also support vascular health. Eat wild-caught redfish at least three times a week, as well as flax seeds and pine nuts,” the nutritionist recommends.

Collagen in bone broths is also a product that is beneficial for the heart and blood vessels. Weakness of the vascular system is often associated with a lack of collagen. It is a structural element of the walls of blood vessels.

“Magnesium in nuts and seeds maintains normal blood pressure levels because it can reduce stress,” said Lavsky.

“To reduce high cholesterol, which directly affects the health of the cardiovascular system, eat onions and garlic daily. As well as B vitamins, which are found in legumes, offal, and wholemeal bread,” the expert summarized.
