Found within your chest cavity is an organ, about the size of a clenched fist, with a tireless duty. Each day of your life, the heart will pump 2,000 gallons worth of blood, carrying oxygen and nutrients, to every corner of your body. Over the course of your lifetime, it will beat more than 100,000 times a day, more than 30 million times a year, and more than 2.5 billion times in about 70 years.
Keep Your Heart Strong
Step 1: Lose excess fat, especially visceral fat, with an Isagenix system.
Excess body fat, the worst kind being visceral fat, increases blood volume flowing through your vessels, which raises blood pressure and puts stress on your heart and arteries. (Read more about deadly visceral fat here.) In a well-designed clinical study, subjects on an Isagenix system consisting of Cleanse Days and Shake Days lost 56 percent more weight, 47 percent more body fat, and twice as much visceral fat in comparison to a well-established “heart healthy” diet recommended by medical doctors.
Step 2: Snack on SlimCakes for soluble fiber.
Each delicious oatmeal-and-blueberry flavored SlimCake provides 5 grams of fiber including 3 grams of heart-healthy soluble fiber. A diet high in soluble fiber helps you reduce the amount of cholesterol absorbed into your blood stream to support the maintenance of lower levels of LDL cholesterol. You can get plenty more soluble fiber by eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
Step 3: Treat yourself to green tea-infused IsaDelight Plus Chocolates.
Last February, just in time for Valentine’s Day, a systematic review and meta-analysis confirmed both the short- and long-term cardiovascular benefits of eating chocolate. The research found that chocolate eating was linked to better toned blood vessels, better blood flow, and better maintenance of healthy blood pressure. But keep in mind, not all chocolates offer the same benefits. The most of your daily indulgence can be made with flavanol-packed, green tea-infused IsaDelight Plus Chocolates.
Step 4: Get your Ageless Essentials Daily Pack for vitamin C, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), selenium, and fish oil.
The pack contains an assortment of micronutrients and bioactives that are good for your heart. These include vitamin C, coenzyme Q10, and selenium, a combination that a controlled trial has found to improve the elasticity of blood vessels when taken over the long term. In addition, the pack contains fish oil’s long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep blood vessels healthy, and are supplied in amounts that meet the American Heart Association recommendations.
Step 5: Take Product B to support the integrity of your telomeres.
Telomere length is linked to heart health, research has found. The natural botanicals within Product B, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can help you protect your telomeres. In addition, research has shown that ingredients in Product B, including milk thistle and turmeric, may also support the heart in other ways such as through improved blood flow or maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels when combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
