The Way to a Better Heart with Native Hawaiian Food

published by jennifer eiffel01 on Nov 30, 2012

Centers for Disease Control say in new research that women who are Hawaiian and eat a native diet have 52% less cases of heart disease than the rest of the U.S., it doesn’t count if a person is Hawaiian and most meals are from fast food restaurants as that type of perso from Hawaii has just as much heart disease as other states.

Sweet potatoes aren’t just for Thanksgiving anymore. Many Hawaiian dishes make sweet potatoes an ingredient in a lot of recipes.The great part is in Hawaii there is no sweet potato season, instead they grow there throughout the year. I guess that’s why they are in so many recipes because they harvest all year the potatoes. This is also good news because out of every vegetable that is grown in this world it has 25% more antioxidants than all those other vegetables. A sweet potato is considered a vegetable. If you want to lower your heart attack risk by 56, eat three cups of sweet potatoes weekly.

A good fat to keep your cholesterol in check is called palmitoleic acid, macadamia nuts have 19% more of this fat than even olive oil which we are always reading how good it is for the heart. Well, now new research shows that macadamia nuts are better than olive oil. These nuts are so good at making your heart healthy that all you have to do is eat 1 ounce of macadamia nuts a day and that would work better a meticulously followed low fat diet!

Want to lower your blood pressure by 12 points in three months then eat one cup of pineapple or papaya a day. If I had high blood pressure I would experiment if it was really high and eat a cup of both a day, don’t try it without your doctors permission! These are both considered tropical fruits and are full of plant enzymes and these enzymes calm and relax your muscles around your blood vessels according to Mark Stengler , N.D. author of The Natural Physician’s  Healing Therapies.
