Whole Grains and Heart Health

August 28, 2014

A recent study found that eating whole grains can keep your arteries healthy and protect against heart disease and stroke. Researchers followed a group of men and women and found that those who ate a diet rich in whole grains had the thinnest carotid artery walls and showed the slowest progression in artery wall thickness. Thickening of the lining of the carotid arteries increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. About 90 percent of Americans don't get the recommended three servings of whole grains a day. Add a serving of whole grains to each meal to help improve your heart health.
