As you probably know, this is a topic of critical importance to us here at Natural Health Wise. You may remember that Co-Editor Daniel lives with Congestive Heart Failure and we work together every day to manage his condition and improve his quality of life. With the information here, we hope to take care of your heart health as well. So, read on…
In the United States alone, 1 in 4 people die each year from heart disease. There’s a way to set yourself apart from the thousands that suffer from cardiovascular illness – and in a way that tastes good at the same time! With so much information about what heart disease is, it can leave many wanting to remain ignorant about the causes, effects and risks of this potentially deadly disease. But, if you don’t know what role you play in your own risk for heart disease, you could find yourself causing damage to your heart, damage that at some point down the road could become painful, costly, or even impossible to reverse. In the United States alone, heart disease is the number one killer for both men and women. Got heart disease in your family? Could you already have high blood-pressure or congestive heart failure and not even know it? Do you have a heart murmur, or heart palpitations? Do you stress out more than you smile? Then make sure you keep reading. There are several types of heart disease, including the hardening of coronary arteries, irregular heartbeat (which often, but not always, goes away with age) and disease within the heart valves. Many people who have heart attacks are completely unarmed and unprepared. In other respects they are actually very healthy, but they may have high levels of stress. Not taking proper care of your heart can result in energy-zapping symptoms ranging from not getting enough oxygen to your arteries to a development of weakness of your heart muscle. there are numerous reasons why you must eat your greens And your fruit too!
Every day, eat these top three foods to help fight the risk of heart disease:
Oranges, just like many other fruits, contain vitamin C, antioxidants, and a variety of other vitamins. These natural boosters can pick up your mood when it’s lacking and pep you up right before an important meeting at work. As it turns out, oranges also have the power to fight off heart failure. Daniel eats several mandarin oranges every single day. But oranges don’t just taste great – juicy, delicious and refreshing. The fruit also contains pectin, which works to absorb the cholesterol we consume (like magic!). Oranges also contain a great source of potassium. And when you get your daily fill, you’ll have the ability to keep your cholesterol and blood sugar in balance. This means you’ll have a better chance of lowering your risk of heart attack. You can also reduce your risk of developing scar tissue around your heart, which will lower your risk for heart disease altogether. Eat up!
One of the best greens you can eat – if not the very best – kale is often called a superfood. Along with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and plenty of antioxidants, it also contains something extra to help you ward off heart disease for good. Nrf2 is a special type of protein that works hard to protect your arteries from building up plaque. When you don’t get enough of this miracle protein, Nrf2, you’re putting yourself at risk. So, enjoy kale raw or cooked. Kale is extremely easy to cook with and can be a delicious, nutrient-packed ingredient to use with any meal throughout the day. Put some kale in a salad, or inside of a turkey sandwich. Sauté kale to serve alongside dinner, or simply mix it into your scrambled eggs or a quiche.
As delicious as chocolate tastes going down, it tastes even better when you realize how many benefits it offers. Who knew a piece of indulgent, rich dark chocolate could drastically improve the health of your blood vessels, allow you to have a more restful night’s sleep, and even alter how happy you feel? Chocolate (the darker the better) can positively affect your mind, your body and the future of your overall health. Want to live to be 100? The answer may lie here… Eat just a few pieces of dark chocolate daily to reduce your chance of suffering from a stroke, improve your heart health, and lower your risk for getting heart disease in the first place. Make it even better by choosing the kind that contains almonds since they are superfoods in their own right.
You deserve to not just feel great today. You deserve to feel your very best every day. Focus on the foods you eat today, and improve your future tomorrow.
