<<Give yourself a happy heart treat by eating the foods that support good heart health or alternatively by taking beneficial supplements. Here are 4 recommendations.
GARLIC Besides making food taste more delicious garlic is said to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Research suggests that is slows plaque build up in the arteries, lowering the risk of blood clots. The sulfurous compounds in garlic appear to expand blood vessels and keep them relaxed, helping manage blood pressure. Powerful phytonutrients have anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects on the blood vessels and blood cells.   OMEGAS High quality sources of Omega-3 fatty acids can slash levels of triglycerides (unhealthy fat) in your blood by up to 30%. Omegas may also promote healthy blood pressure. Seafood, walnuts and flaxseed all contain omegas. If you aren't getting enough of these foods then supplementing is recommended.   PSYLIUM HUSK Fibre is an essential part of a healthy diet. Psylium husk, in particular, has been shown to lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol. It can affect your heart by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening heart muscle. When adding psylium to your diet, start off with a small amount and slowly increase it. This helps prevent any possible gas or cramping. Remember to drink enough liquid throughout the day.   COENZYME Q10 Your body naturally makes small amounts of this enzyme, also known as ubiquinone and ubiquinol. If your levels of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) have diminished through age, medication or lifestyle factors, it's highly beneficial to supplement. CoQ10 has been attributed to helping lower high blood pressure, and has been used as a treatment for the side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins.
