Did you know that eating foods rich in phytochemicals can improve your heart health? “Phyto” means “plant”. Phytochemicals are compounds that are produced by plants.

There is no recommended dietary allowance for phytochemicals. Taking phytochemicals in supplement form probably won’t be as beneficial as eating healthy meals that include 5 or more cups of fruits and vegetables per day. Some phytochemical-rich foods include:

Cruciferous vegetables:
• Broccoli
• Cauliflower
• Collards
• Kale
• Turnips
• Cabbage
• Brussels sprouts
• Watercress

• Berries
• Pears
• Cantaloupe
• Apricots
• Apples

Other Foods Rich in Phytochemicals:
• Garlic
• Legumes
• Onions
• Red peppers
• Soybeans
• Sweet potatoes
• Tomatoes
