HOW GENES AND WHAT WE EAT AFFECT OUR HEART HEALTH

Caffeine

Some people increase their risk of high blood pressure and heart attack if they consume more than two cups of coffee per day, while others don’t have this risk.

Sodium

For some people, reducing their salt intake can help reduce their blood pressure, whereas others don’t experience the same benefits.

Omega-3 Fat

Depending on your gene type, Omega-3 fats can significantly help reduce your risk of heart disease by reducing your triglyceride levels. For people with a variation in their NOS3 gene, they may experience little benefit.
