Strawberries

Strawberries are heart-healthy and packed with vitamin C. They are also an excellent source of folate, which is a nutrient that's suspected (but not proven) to help protect your heart.

Like blueberries, they contain compounds that help widen the arteries, which may prevent plaque buildup.

Another benefit? They whiten your teeth naturally!
