The Details: Love for Your Heart
There are two primary compounds found in pears that may lower your risk of heart disease. The first is found in the peel and is called quercetin. This antioxidant decreases inflammation and is thought to reduce contributors to heart disease like high cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
The other is procyanidin, a polyphenol abundant in pears that may decrease heart tissue stiffness, increase good cholesterol (HDL) and lower the bad LDL type.
Celery is also high in antioxidants in the form of phytonutrients that can help reduce oxidative stress, reducing inflammation which may help reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s also quite high in Vitamin K, which may also lower heart disease risk through its potential ability to reduce cardiovascular calcification.
The Vitamin B folate found in parsley is believed to benefit heart health by lowering levels of homocysteine, an amino acid whose high levels are shown to alter the structure and function of our arteries.
