Foods Rich With Antioxidants

Antioxidants are substances that lower the risk of having heart diseases and fight free radicals in the body. Luckily, you can find antioxidants in the foods you eat everyday. In fact, 70% of heart diseases can be avoided if you just choose the right food to eat. There are many kinds of food that are overflowing with antioxidants. Read on to learn more.

There’s just one little trick to turning your kitchen into a hub for heart health: Don’t stick to the same few foods. The secret is in varying the types of fish, vegetables, whole grains, and other items you enjoy every day. With that in mind, we’ve compiled the world’s 25 top foods for your heart—mix and match a handful of them every week to eat your way toward a healthier you.

Wild salmon

Broiled, grilled or baked, this tasty, fleshy fish is replete with omega-3 fatty acids that improve the metabolic markers for heart disease. It also has rich levels of selenium, an antioxidant that studies have shown boosts cardiovascular protection.


These spiny little creatures are also loaded with omega-3s in the form of fish oil, which increases “good” cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of sudden heart attacks in people who have experienced previous attacks. Stick to fresh ones to avoid the canned variety's high salt content.


Liver contains fats that are good for the heart.


This nut is chock-full of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, Vitamin E, and folate, all of which promote healthy hearts. It's also high in polyunsaturated fats. Eat them unsalted, of course.


Like walnuts, these crunchy, meaty nuts are big in omega-3s, and provide an alternative to folks who may not like the bitter bite of fleshy walnuts.

Chia seeds

Just a spoonful of this plant-based omega-3 powerhouse contains only 60 calories and helps reduce bad cholesterol and plaque buildup. Mix them with yogurt, soup, or sprinkle on a salad.


The highly publicized benefits of eating your oatmeal have long shown it's a wonder meal for reducing cholesterol. But eat only the plain, non-processed kind. Instant and flavored oats are often drenched in processed sugar.


These dark berries are packed with resveratrol and flavonoids, another antioxidant that helps prevent coronary disease. Put them in your oatmeal, in a smoothie, or in yogurt.


Studies have shown that coffee is high in antioxidants and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. Up to three cups a day also increases cognition levels and helps decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
