Happier Heart

You already know that your heart is a vital organ. It's the pump that keeps blood moving throughout your body so that every part of your body gets the oxygen it needs.

Because we can't see our heart, it can be hard to remember that this important muscle needs attention, too. We need to strengthen it, nourish it, and check in on it to make sure it's functioning properly. This guide will give you some tools and tips to help your heart be healthy and happy.

Eating for a Happy Heart

Our hearts need nutrients to stay healthy. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean protein and low-fat dairy will all give your heart the variety of nutrients it needs. Try out these recipes and healthy eating tips below.
