As we inch closer to Christmas, we take a look at how what we eat can impact our cardiovascular health.
In this episode we discuss a number of different diets such as DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and the Mediterranean diet, as well as individual foods. We ask the question is butter or margarine better for your heart health?
We also delve into the world of supplements that are often suggested for heart health, such as fish oil, turmeric and red yeast rice
