Heart Health: Vital to a Healthy Body
Overall cardiovascular health
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and the Centers for Disease Control estimates that every year about 785,000 Americans have a first heart attack. Clearly, maintaining heart health and a strong cardiovascular system are vital to a healthy body. And clearly, diet and exercise are the most important factors. Scientists and doctors both agree that a program of preventive health today is preferable to a treatment program tomorrow. But unfortunately, most Americans don’t eat enough heart-healthy foods or get enough exercise. That’s why many of us turn to natural supplements.
Maintaining normal triglyceride levels*
Triglycerides are a form of stored fat found in the bloodstream and body tissues. Keeping these levels in a healthy range is important for helping to support the health of the heart and blood vessels.* The following are generally accepted guidelines for triglyceride levels:
- Normal: Less than 150 mg/dL
- Borderline High: 150 - 199 mg/dL
- High: 200 - 499 mg/dL
- Very High: 500 mg/dL or above
- Source: Centers For Disease Control, 2010
While there is absolutely no substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle, the omega fatty acids in fish oil offer many health benefits, including nourishment of the cardiovascular system*. In fact, New Chapter’s Wholemega® fish oil has been shown in a clinical trial to lower triglyceride levels.*
