Omega-3s help reduce inflammation and replace heart-unhealthy saturated fats. Good sources include extra-virgin olive oil, walnuts, flaxseed, salmon and tuna. Go green with dark green, leafy vegetables like Swiss chard, which are high in minerals, fiber and antioxidants, all of which control blood pressure. Swiss chard makes a great bed for that omega-3-rich fish when wilted and seasoned with garlic, herbs or pepper. Spread on some sterols to block LDL cholesterol absorption. You can find sterol-fortified margarines, orange juice and soy milk.
