Different Kind of Vegetable
Both the American Heart Association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommend daily portions of fruits and vegetables, which are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and low in salt, saturated fats, and cholesterol. Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli are high in folic acid and vitamin B, which control the levels of an amino acid - homocysteine - in the blood. Homocysteine can cause nicks in the arterial wall and promote the development of atherosclerosis.
