The Details: Healing for Your Heart
Potassium contained in grapes can help regulate blood pressure. This is accomplished through potassium’s ability to dilate blood vessels, plus the secondary effect of allowing the body to excrete excess sodium.
Peaches may lower heart disease risk factors, like high blood pressure and cholesterol. Studies have found that the antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols found in peaches bind bile acids. By binding these acids, the cholesterol attached to them is also bound and then excreted through feces, thereby lowering cholesterol levels in the bloodstream.
The anthocyanins in strawberries may improve heart health by improving blood pressure and HDL (good) cholesterol levels, as well as blood platelet function.
