'Easy ways to boost heart health', by Innovite

Did you know that nine out of ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease?

That sounds scary, but here’s the good news: almost 80% of heart disease can be counteracted by efforts to lower blood pressure and cholesterol if it’s caught early enough.


What can I do to boost my heart health?

Whether you have high cholesterol and blood pressure, a family history of heart disease, or just want to keep your heart in tip-top shape, here are some things you can do to support your cardiovascular system:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Manage stress when possible
  • Cut down on alcohol consumption
  • Avoid smoking
  • Eat healthy whole foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Watch salt intake
  • Focus on healthy fats (Omega 3’s, 6’s, and 9’s)


Consider extra support

So you’re exercising regularly, keeping calm, and eating a healthy diet. What else can be done to ensure a healthy ticker? Well, there are always supportive supplements to complement a healthy lifestyle.

Consider these options:

Red Yeast Rice

Red Yeast Rice has been long used by traditional medicine practitioners to naturally lower cholesterol. It’s a natural source of statins, which inhibit enzyme activity that builds cholesterol.

Krill Oil

If you’re looking to load up on healthy omega-3 fats, but aren’t a huge fan of fish, Krill Oil is the answer. Fish oil is commonly known as a reliable source of omega-3’s, but krill oil, which comes from wild krill, delivers higher absorption and raises omega-3 levels faster than fish oil. Plus, krill sits at the bottom of the food chain, meaning it contains lower levels of toxins than fish.

Nothing beats a healthy heart! With these simple measures, you can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease.
