From our heart to yours. At Kashi, the seven whole grain company, we believe everyone has the power to make positive, healthy lifestyle changes. For over 25 years it's been our mission to provide great tasting, all natural foods made with whole grains to help you live well. That's why we made our heart to heart® foods with more heart healthy Ingredients to: help support healthy cholesterol.
Since high cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 3 grams of soluble fiber per day from whole grain oats may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of heart to heart cereal provides 1 gram of soluble fiber. This type of fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material and as it passes through the digestive system, it binds with cholesterol, removing it from your body. Good sources of soluble fiber include whole grains like oats, brown rice and barley, beans, peas, fruits and vegetables.
Help maintain healthy arteries. Your heart needs healthy arteries to deliver oxygen and vital nutrition to your body. That's why we added nutrients to help neutralize free radicals and help support healthy arteries. Heart to heart cereal is high in antioxidant vitamins e, c and beta carotene. Natural extracts from green tea, white tea and grape seed are also antioxidants. Plus you'll get 100% daily value for heart healthy vitamins b6, b12 and folic acid.
Help promote healthy blood pressure. High blood pressure is another major risk factor for heart disease. Sodium is important to the body, but a high sodium diet is associated with hypertension. Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure, a disease associated with many risk factors. That's why we made sure heart to heart cereal is a low sodium breakfast choice.
