There’s more to lowering your risk of heart disease than just watching the fat in your diet. There are many good-for-you foods that provide nutrients that may decrease your chance of having a heart attack. B vitamins — in particular vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid — have a role in maintaining a healthy heart.
B6, B12 and folic acid may help keep homocysteine levels low in your blood. If homocysteine levels are too high, blood can clot more easily, which increases the chance of a heart attack or stroke.
In general, B vitamins can be found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, especially dark leafy green vegetables, whole grains, dried peas and beans, lean meat, seafood and low-fat dairy.
Follow these general guidelines to include adequate B vitamins in your diet:
Even with food, adding B vitamins such as the B complex + C or B12 into your daily rotation will help your overall health. Add our B complex + C to your cart or add it to your subscription bundle with an easy click.
