If you drink green tea regularly it has the power to increase your metabolism, lower cholesterol, and prevent diabetes. It can even help prevent stroke. Green tea has lots of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory activities, so it helps reduce your risk of skin, breast, lung, colon and bladder cancer.

Salmon

We know fish is brain food, but it is so much more. People who are heart smart know that eating fatty fish is great for your diet. The high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in fish reduce your blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots. In people who have already had heart attacks, omega-3 fatty acids reduces the risk of arrhythmia, ultimately reducing the risk of death from heart problems.
