Richly Colored Foods Help the Heart

Older adults who eat moderate amounts of foods rich in compounds called flavonoids are less likely to die of heart disease or stroke, according to a recent study. Flavonoids, found in a wide range of brightly colored fruits and vegetables — blueberries, plums, apples, cherries, oranges, strawberries, spinach — help to protect the body’s cells from damage that may contribute to cancer and a host of other maladies. Flavonoids are abundant not only in these foods, but also in dark chocolate, nuts, red wine, soy products and tea.
