Much attention is focused on breast cancer prevention in women — and rightly so. Yet we often forget that the number one killer of women in America is heart disease.
Exercise and a healthy diet are key to a heart-healthy lifestyle. New studies are suggesting women may want to consider adding multivitamins to their fight against heart disease. Continue reading “Take Vitamins to Heart”
In your family, special mementos, such as your great-grandmother’s china, may be passed along through generations. You may also inherit Uncle Fred’s prominent nose, Aunt Bertha’s musical talent — or your mother’s poor heart health. Family provides the foundation of well-being, physical attributes and our health — good or bad.
Many health problems, including major illnesses like heart disease and diabetes, as well as contributing risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, can be rooted in genetics. If your family has a history of these health issues, you’re at higher risk for developing them. Continue reading “Health Is All in the Family”
The numbers are looking better and better for 74-year-old Santi Lombardo of Miami, Florida. He and his wife, Sonia, were thrilled to learn how nicely his cholesterol levels had improved after just three months of adding Relìv’s CardioSentials® to his heart health regimen.
The couple was already enjoying the benefits of Relìv’s essential nutrition, when they learned from their daughter-in-law, Relìv Distributor Annie Lombardo, about CardioSentials, which has been clinically shown to be safe and effective in reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol and lowering blood glucose levels.
At the time, Santi’s serum cholesterol levels were still troubling, despite close monitoring by a cardiologist and trying a number of medications, including statins, which caused muscle pain. Santi started adding CardioSentials once daily to his Relìv shakes. A recent round of tests confirmed what Santi and Sonia already knew: It was working! For the first time in a long time, Santi’s various cholesterol levels were within acceptable ranges across the board.
“Santi just feels better,” says Sonia, who has noticed that her husband doesn’t seem so tired any more. “He’s working in his garden again, something he hadn’t been doing. And he’s asking for his shakes. He knows this is working. I think I’m going to start adding CardioSentials to my shakes, too!”
These surgeries sent Steve into a prolonged period of inactivity that led him to gain 80 pounds. A visit to his doctor for a physical confirmed his fears: “Everything my doctor told me was bad,” he says. “In addition to being overweight, my blood pressure was high, all my cholesterol levels were bad, my triglycerides were off the chart and my blood glucose level was averaging over 260.” Continue reading “Getting His Life Back in His Hands”
We know, based on multiple studies, that your diet can either work for or against you when it comes to heart disease risk.
