Health-boosting nutrients

To help your health and nutrition goals, eat more foods that add these protective nutrients to your diet: 1. Antioxidants (almonds, broccoli), which may help prevent cholesterol from damaging the linings of your arteries. 2. B vitamins (sweet potatoes), which help reduce the risk of stroke and peripheral artery disease by lowering homocysteine levels. 3. Dietary fiber (apples, beans), which can help lower your cholesterol level.
