“Ignored” Veggie REVERSES Heart Disease
If you’re like most folks, you try to eat healthy.
You load up your shopping cart with carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers… and you try to work some side salads into your meals.
But there’s one “super veggie” I can almost GUARANTEE you’re not eating.
And it works like MAGIC for reversing heart disease.
It has THREE TIMES the recommended daily dose of artery-softening vitamin K in every serving.
And it’s LOADED with antioxidants and other nutrients that can prevent clots and heart attacks.
Can you guess what it is?
Swiss chard is not only a leafy green but it is also a member of the beet family.
Like kale and spinach, Swiss chard is loaded with potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin C and numerous other micronutrients.
But because it is also related to the beet – sort of a hybrid veggie – Swiss chard has a particularly impressive nutritional profile.
You see, foods from the beet family contain high levels of nitrates which are known for lowering blood pressure.
Additionally, Swiss chard is a powerful source of antioxidants that boost blood vessel health and overall blood flow.
A 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that the nitrates in Swiss chard are incredibly beneficial for cardiovascular health.
They can even keep blood platelets from sticking together and causing clots.
Swiss chard is available at most supermarkets – but, like I said, most of us don’t buy it.
But it’s remarkably easy to incorporate into sandwiches, soups, salads, and even smoothies.
Try adding it to your shopping list for the next few weeks. You’ll be surprised how much better you feel.
