Cardiovascular health and nutrition

The Heart Foundation has published its latest report on cardiovascular health and nutrition: Summary of evidence : Antioxidants in food, drinks and supplements for cardiovascular health. The main recommendations for Australian adults are:

1. Consume at least two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables every day.
2. As part of a healthy balanced diet, drink black or green tea or cocoa made from raw cocoa powder (without sugar and with low fat milk).

Normal chocolate, red wine and antioxident supplements are not recommended for improving cardiovascular health.
