Millions of Americans rely on certain products and remedies to help boost their heart health. But troublesome side effects from some of these products cause as many as three-quarters of people to look for alternatives. In his book, The Hidden Truth about Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs, former pharmaceutical company chemist Shane Ellison says the first step toward supporting heart health is engaging in healthy lifestyle habits, not popping pills.
Ellison recommends adopting these daily habits:
- Abstain from sugar and artificial sweeteners
- Quit smokingor dont start
- Exercise moderately
- Eat more leafy, green vegetables every day
- Drink more purified water
- Limit milk consumption to moderate amounts of milk
- Eat walnuts, coconut oil or freshwater salmon for omega-3 fatty acids
- Minimize refined grains
- Lose body fat
These all can help boost heart health and circulation, which can be further promoted with the addition of the enzyme nattokinase to your daily regimen. Discovered by the Japanese more than 1,000 years ago, this enzyme can help safely and naturally eliminate protein buildupand support healthy blood flow from head to toe. In one scientific study, 173 coagulated blood samples were exposed to various nutrients, but results indicate nattokinase was the only nutrient able to successfully break down the clotted blood.
