Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Although one in three women will suffer the effects of heart disease in their lifetime, it doesn't have to be this way.
Heart disease can be prevented. Women need to make their heart health a priority. February is Heart and Stroke month and one of the ways that women can take charge of their heart is with femMED Heart Health. A doctor-formulated, multi-ingredient solution made just for women, femMED Heart Health includes an essential blend of omega-3 fatty acids, coenzyme Q10 plus six other heart healthy ingredients to help support and maintain cardiovascular health.
Sherry Torkos, pharmacist and author of the Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine is a leading voice in the campaign to keep women’s hearts healthy. “Heart disease is largely preventable. Women need to do everything they can to protect themselves against their number one health threat. Among my recommendations are that women eat a heart-healthy diet, get regular exercise and take a supportive supplement, such as femMED Heart Health."
The effects of heart disease can be devastating not just to yourself but to those you love. Be proactive with your heart health and take the necessary steps to prevent heart disease. Start by looking at your lifestyle and evaluating what you can change to improve your heart health. The following are the top five risk factors for heart disease.
1. Smoking - women who smoke have two to three times the risk of heart disease; exposure to
second hand smoke is also a risk factor.
2. Inactivity - Not getting enough physical activity (couch potato lifestyle) doubles your risk.
3. Stress - Increases in blood pressure, cholesterol, and the formation of clots are all
associated with both stress and heart disease.
4. Excess weight – carrying excess weight increases blood pressure, cholesterol, and the risk
of diabetes—all factors that also increase your risk of heart disease.
5. Poor Diet- Studies indicate that a high intake of saturated and trans fats or a low intake off
fibre can increase the risk of heart disease.
