Jumpstart Your Heart Action Plan

The heart is perhaps the body’s most beautiful muscle. Roughly the size of a clenched fist, this amazing machine beats approximately 100,000 times in a day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. This powerful pump circulates oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to every cell in the human body. Have a heart and take good care of your ticker. Follow these heart-healthy steps to live better and longer.

Healthy Supplements

The right supplements can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and even help prevent a heart attack. Make these 4 heart-healthy superstars part of your daily regimen: CO-Q10, shown to help maintain healthy blood vessels (100mg twice per day); fish oil, prized for its cholesterol-clearing good fat (600mg DHA once a day); a fiber supplement to help you get at least 25mg fiber a day to lower your risk of heart disease; and low-dose aspirin to lower blood pressure (2 pills per day, 81mg each).
