Your heart is the most important organ and muscle in your body. Nothing in your body, not even your brain, works well unless your heart is pumping smoothly.

Your heart is an intricate pump that can easily become slowed with clogs of plaque, cholesterol, and other filth that cause heart disease. Heart disease is the top killer of both men and women in the U.S. and it’s nothing to be taken lightly.1

Your heart needs to be kept clean and running like a well-oiled engine. February is the perfect time to clean out your arteries and get your heart in tip-top shape. Here’s how:

Everyone knows you have to work out to get stronger. And you've probably heard of cardio workouts, too. Your cardiovascular system is your heart system, so when you do a cardio workout, you're doing a workout for your heart–strengthening it. Cardiovascular workouts usually consist of running, swimming, hiking, or any other endurance exercise and should be endured for at least 30 minutes a day.

Your diet should include lots of polysaccharides (complex sugars) found only in fruits and vegetables. Monosaccharides and disaccharides (simple sugars found in candies, sweets, and fast foods) are bad for your heart. Minimize oils and fats in your diet to keep your cardiovascular system clean of plaque and cholesterol. Certain oils are better for your heart than others, but those good oils aren't used in fried foods. So stay away from fried foods. Also be careful with your meat selection. Overconsumption of animal fats causes the bulk of heart diseases because those fats digest directly to your fat storage and are full of cholesterol.

FiberWise Drinks, Bars, and Cereals are packed full of fiber, which is great for your heart as well as your digestive system. But not just any fiber, psyllium husk fiber. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) agrees that psyllium husk fiber can help lower your cholesterol levels.2

The common ways to maintain a healthy heart, like diet and exercise, aren't always enough to keep a good blood pressure level. ProStolic is the only supplement to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels using a proprietary blend of tripeptides, potassium, pomegranate, and passionflower to protect your heart–naturally.2

The plant-derived phytosterols in Phytomega mimic cholesterol in your body. Phytosterols help effectively block your body's absorption of cholesterol in the intestine. The unabsorbed cholesterol then passes out of your body as waste. Phytomega also contains omega-3 fatty acids, good fats, which actively lower cholesterol.2 By lowering cholesterol levels, Phytomega may help reduce your risk of heart disease.3
Your entire body's health leans on the health of your heart. You can burn fat easier, gain muscle easier, and have a clearer mind just by caring for your heart. So put in some effort this February during Heart Health Month.

Let's talk!  Make 2009 a new start for a new YOU!  A healthier YOU, Give the gift of YOUR health to YOUR family!
