Medicinal Foods for Heart Failure

Generally speaking, heart failure occurs when the contractile activity of the heart muscle can no longer maintain a blood flow that will meet the needs of the body, a fact that causes signs and symptoms such as excessive tiredness, shortness of breath and leg swelling. Heart failure is a serious condition that must be investigated and treated by a specialist, but there is still something you can do yourself and that is making sure you eat enough of certain foods that have been proven to be of help either by traditional use or by modern scientific studies.
