Fortify Your Heart
Anger can eat away at your health, unless you eat away at your anger.
A new study confirms that anger tends to increase the levels of an amino acid, homocysteine, in the blood. Elevated homocysteine levels have been linked to arterial damage and cardiovascular disease. The good news is that foods rich in the mineral folate, such as spinach, orange juice, fortified cereals, and beans, may counter homocysteine's harmful effects.
You can prolong your age: Getting a total of 700 micrograms of folate per day in food and supplements can make your RealAge as much as 1.2 years younger.
