3. Restart Your Heart

If you want to restart your body, the number-one organ you must take into consideration is your heart. Heart disease comes in many forms and has many different causes – from hereditary factors to poor lifestyle choices. High blood pressure (HBP) and high cholesterol can increase plaque formation inside the arteries, which can trigger a heart attack. High blood pressure also forces the heart to have to pump harder and harder, which can lead to an enlarged heart that can result in congestive heart failure. Over time, the aortic valve can calcify and stiffen, preventing blood flow and causing blood to leak back into the heart. What you may not realize is that these cardiovascular problems can occur as early as in your 20s. To restart your heart, follow Dr. Oz’s Extended Warranty For Your Heart.

Take 600mg DHA Omega-3 Supplement Daily

While many people know about the importance of taking an Omega-3 supplement, not everyone realizes that DHA Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil is the most powerful when it comes to lowering cholesterol, preventing new plaques from forming, and reducing triglyceride levels. Make sure your Omega-3 supplement is labeled DHA Omega-3 supplement. Take 600mg once a day and store it in the fridge to make it last longer.

If You’re Over 40, Take Two 81mg Low-dose Aspirin Before Bedtime.

Also referred to as baby aspirin, low-dose aspirin has been shown to lower blood pressure when consumed before bedtime. Be sure to take this over-the-counter medication with 8 ounces of water. Drink half the glass before and half the glass after you swallow the aspirin to avoid stomach irritation. If you have a bleeding disorder or have a history of stomach ulcers, be sure to check with your doctor first.

Eat Two Servings of Soluble Fiber Daily

Soluble fiber found in foods such as oatmeal, apples, pears, citrus, beans, peas, carrots, quinoa and barley wicks bad cholesterol away from your arteries. Aim for two servings per day. Be sure to increase your fiber intake gradually to avoid gas. And drink with plenty of water since fiber can’t do its job in a dehydrated system.
