Basil: Lower stress lev­els and the risk of heart disease by us­ing herbs like basil, which has a calm­ing ef­fect. It’s a good source of vitamin A, which pro­tects your body at the cel­lu­lar level, and mag­ne­sium, which prompts mus­cles and blood ves­sels to re­lax for bet­ter blood flow. Kai lan, bak choy and brus­sels sprouts: Th­ese leafy greens are rich in mag­ne­sium and B vi­ta­mins, which aid mus­cle con­trac­tion and re­lax­ation (af­ter all, the heart is one big mus­cle!). Have them stir-fried with low-sodium soy sauce or try roast­ing the bak choy and brus­sels sprouts. Av­o­ca­does: They’re rich in mo­noun­sat­u­rated fats and omega-3 fatty acids that keep the ar­ter­ies clean and lower blood choles­terol lev­els.
