American Heart Month is the perfect time to take inventory on what you’re doing to support your heart health. From exercising to the foods we eat and the supplementation we may or may not be taking, is there one thing you could be doing to drastically increase the support for your heart-health? As always, the food we are consuming should be at the root of achieving wellness. Lucky for all of us, many heart-healthy foods are delicious. What about supplementation? Again, lucky for us, because Market America has a system just for this.
Berries: Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are packed with nutrients that are crucial in heart health. They are also rich in antioxidants, specifically, anthocyanins which help support oxidative stress and inflammation. Not to mention, berries taste delicious and can be added to so many things include the TLS Nutrition Shake for added protein.
Whole Grains: Three rich nutrients make whole grains, specifically, whole wheat, brown rice, oats, rye, barley, buckwheat and quinoa, beneficial to heart health. Because high grains are high in fiber, they help support the “bad” cholesterol levels.
Leafy Greens: A great addition for so many benefits but especially heart health with the vast amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Vitamin K is of the the prominent vitamins and helps support arteries.
Fatty Fish: Salmon and tuna are well known sources for Omega-3 fatty acids which have been extensively studied for their heart health benefits. Try adding salmon into your diet a couple times per week, if you aren’t already.
Dark Chocolate: Quite possibly our favorite heart-healthy option, dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids which can support heart health. Its recommended to choose a high quality dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa.
Heart Health System: Our enhanced Heart Health System was released in September during MAIC 2020. American Heart Month may be the perfect time to revisit this system and its essential benefits to supporting your cardiovascular health. With an enhanced formula to bring our customers the very best, the Heart Health System is comprised of three components:
Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil with Vitamin E: provides the three grams of EPA† and DHA† that studies reveal is an effective amount to promote overall cardiovascular health.
Heart Health™ Advanced LipiTrim® Ultra: a powerful antioxidant that contains 500 mg of Capros, an ingredient that has been used in Aruyvedic health practices for centuries, as well as the benefits of 250 mg of Prickly Pear to help support normal cholesterol levels. This formula also contains hesperidin which supports cardiovascular well-being.
Heart Health™ TriActive™: targets three major areas, the arteries, cholesterol and homocysteine levels to support the healthy performance of the body’s cardiovascular system.
