Women's Heart Health

Finding new ways to eat healthy doesn’t have to be a tough nut to crack. Just grab yourself a handful of walnuts, almonds or pistachios and you’ll be well on your way to improving your heart. Over time, these snacks can help lower cholesterol, reduce the buildup of plaque in the arteries and prevent blood clots. Try eating nuts a few times a week to reap the greatest nutritional benefit.
