5 Ways to Keep Your Heart Healthy

Now that fall is approaching, we all are tempted by savory stews and baked pies to keep our tummies happy but how good are they for your heart?

As obesity continues to rise and heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death for both men and women, we need to be more aware of our heart health and try to nourish our bodies with foods that will make our hearts healthier.

Below is a variety of products to keep your heart in tip-top shape:

· Cardio 1st (FirstFitness Nutrition has created a exclusive, heart-healthy formulation to support cardiovascular health while assisting with removal of toxins from the body)

· Quaker Hearty Medleys (Quaker Oats has reinvented oatmeal by adding real fruit, nuts, and whole grains to help reduce your chance of developing heart disease)

· Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Full of heart-healthy fats, olive oil lowers bad cholesterol and reduces your risk of developing heart disease while helping you create delicious meals)

· Planter’s Mixed Nuts (With peanuts, almonds, walnuts and pecans, eating 1.5 ounces per day may reduce the risk of heart disease. And they work perfectly in pies!)

· Vital Green Plus (Another FirstFitness favorite! Jam-packed with over 50 fruits, vegetables and phytonutrients, two-and-a-half servings of vegetables each day have been shown to cut the risk of heart disease)
