Strawberries are natural anti-inflammatories, and help lower C-reactive proteins, making them powerful allies for preventing and reducing the risk of heart disease. Rhubarb is another super booster that can help increase the levels of good cholesterol, especially since it is high in fibre. The rhaponticin in rhubarb also helps stabilize blood sugars, and can help prevent/combat diabetes, further decreasing your risk for related heart disease
