25 Foods You Need in Your Heart Healthy Diet

What if I told you there was something we sold in our stores that was just as effective as any statin drug prescribed? 

The only requirement is that you take it at least 5x every day for the rest of your life. It had no side effects and is a fraction of the cost of a prescription. Would you consider it? What if I told you it was fruits and vegetables?
