10 Top Heart-Healthy Foods You’ll Love Eating

Our diet plays a major role in heart health, but this can play in our favor. “The foods that we eat can either increase or decrease the risk of heart disease,” says Dr. Roshini Malaney, cardiologist with Manhattan Cardiology. “It’s all based on the particular ingredient’s composition and its effects on our body.”

According to Dr. Malaney, foods can actually have a direct effect on your blood pressure and even how your blood clots.
