Since your body can’t produce essential omega-3 fatty acids on its own, you need to consume a diet rich in these nutrients that help reduce inflammation, boost circulation and lower bad LDL cholesterol levels. Foods rich in these fatty acids include salmon, mackerel, tuna, walnuts, flaxseeds, olive oil, kidney beans and winter squash. As an added bonus, salmon is also rich in the mineral selenium and several B vitamins.
