Pedroncelli Friends RedSave $1 We love this wine for Valentine’s Day — it has a bright red label and a smile on top of its cap! Plus, as a red wine, it’s heart-healthy. From our own Dr. Liz: “According to research, red wine helps boost heart health in several ways. Red wine is rich in flavanols, which act as powerful antioxidants. They keep the bad carrier of cholesterol, LDL, from damaging artery walls, thus lowering heart disease risk. Other compounds such as quercitin found in red grape skins also protect the heart by keeping blood substances called platelets from becoming sticky, thus lowering the risk of artery-clogging blood clots.” This wine is a great value at only $9.99, save $1.

Plus, you can download a list of heart-healthy items on our grocery aisles to assist you while you shop. Along with these new heart-healthy icons, you will also find lists and icons for items that are local, 100 percent organic, fair trade, imported, gluten free, low sodium, sugar free, and dairy free.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Heart-Smart Eating

Consider this: Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both women and men, and what you eat (or don’t eat!) has a significant impact on your heart health. The American Heart Association recommends focusing on healthy eating and a physically active lifestyle rather than a “don’t eat that” approach.

Follow these basic heart-smart eating guidelines:

  • Know your fats: Emphasize heart-healthy fats such as olive and canola oils in cooking, and avocado and trans-fat free margarines as spreads. Limit full-fat dairy and hard cheese to cut back on saturated fats. Include a small handful of nuts 4 times per week and eat fish (3 to 4 ounces) two times weekly for essential omega-3 fats vital for heart health.
  • Eat fiber-rich whole grains and beans: Select whole-grain cereals (especially oat-based) and breads along with brown rice and beans (canned or dried). Ample fiber intake helps maintain healthy circulating levels of cholesterol and steady blood sugar control.
  • Go for produce: Aim for three pieces of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables (raw and cooked) daily. Produce supplies both fiber and the mineral potassium, which helps maintain healthy blood pressure. Fruits and veggies also contain special compounds that protect artery walls from damage that leads to heart disease.
  • Shake the salt: High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and for some people, too much salt (sodium) in the diet has a negative impact. Use less salt at the table and during cooking, and check food labels for high sodium levels – keep under 500 milligrams per serving of processed food.
