Your Heart is in Your Hands

Since the early 20th century, Cardiovascular Disease has been the leading cause of death and claims more lives each year than the next three leading causes of death combined.
One of the most simple and effective ways to determine the general health of your cardiovascular system is to have your cholesterol level checked on a regular basis. Why is this important? Because health officials estimate that roughly 50 percent of all adults have unhealthy levels of cholesterol and 42 million adults have dangerously high levels—and you could be one of them without even knowing. Lower your cholesterol level, and you’ll lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
There are four known approaches to lowering harmful cholesterol.
- Block Re-Absorption of cholesterol in the intestinal tract,
- Block Absorption of cholesterol that comes directly from food
- Reduce the cholesterol produced by the liver
- Enhance enzymatic breakdown and removal of LDL cholesterol
Despite advances in modern medicine, the fate of most heart patients is in their own hands. Their lifespan depends on their lifestyle choices. Your decision to actively prevent cardiovascular disease is the most important factor in determining the length and quality of your life.
