1. Food Intake:
Eat heart healthy foods--lots of fresh organic vegetables, foods rich in healthy fats such as salmon, avocado, coconut oil, chia, flax or hemps seeds. The seeds are also rich in fibre, supporting all systems.
Making sure you are hydrated is essential, as is a high level of electrolytes or minerals in the body. Fresh vegetable juices with a variety of dark leafy greens will supply the body with an ample amount of minerals, and a quality sugar free coconut water can work as a wonderful electrolyte.
2. Supportive Supplements:
Omega 3 supports the cardiovascular system by keeping cholesterol levels balanced and by supporting blood flow.
A good quality multi-vitamin is very important to ensure proper mineral and vitamin levels, supporting all functions of the cardivascular system.
Garlic capsules will also support blood pressure and flow, as will hawthorn berry which comes in capsules or tea.
3. Nutrient 'L'
No matter what you do, don`t forget the most potent of all Heart Healthy nutrients--LOVE!
Make sure you share this nutrient with those close to you, and have gratitude for their contribution to your life---studies have shown the impact of love on humans, and the absolute necessity of it!
Happy Valentine`s Day Everyone!
