Are you the “Chief Health Officer” in your household—the one who makes the appointments, picks up the medications, encourages healthy habits, and helps family members make health decisions? To help you and your family make heart-healthy choices whenever you can, we’ve put together expert tips and favorite products in honor of American Heart Month (February).
First, do a lifestyle check-in.
- How’s your exercise? Experts recommend regular physical activity as an important step in supporting heart health. Aim for at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise each week.
- What’s your eating pattern? For heart health in particular, eat a rainbow of whole foods, especially foods high in fiber and low in salt.
- Get checkups as your healthcare professional recommends, including blood pressure and cholesterol screenings.
Next, think about building a heart-healthy supplement regimen. Here are our top 5 New Chapter products for heart and cardiovascular support.
1. Fish Oil with Heart
Wholemega™ fish oil supplements provide effective heart-health support* and may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. † Other fish oil benefits include brain, eye, and joint health support.* Delivering Nature’s profile of 17 whole Omegas, sustainably sourced Wholemega is extra-virgin, fresh-pressed, certified responsibly caught, and made with Non-GMO Project Verified salmon oil.
Get daily Omega 3 fatty acids with ocean-friendly fish oil.
2. Clinically Studied Superfoods
Clinical research shows the one-two combination of Black Seed and Turmeric can deliver impressive health results. Golden Black Seed from New Chapter ® is the first herbal formula to deliver a clinically matched dose of these two botanical powerhouses to support metabolic health goals, including cardiovascular benefits such as maintaining cholesterol levels already in the normal range and supporting normal blood pressure.*
Seek clinically studied herbs for metabolic health support.*
3. Nature’s Ingredients for Blood Pressure
The main ingredient in Blood Pressure Take Care™ is an effective and clinically studied natural Grape Seed extract, shown to maintain blood pressure already within normal levels.* This high-quality, patent-pending extract is a potent combination of 7 varieties of wine grapes. Blood Pressure Take Care is also formulated with complementary Maitake mushroom, potent Black Currant, and pure Holy Basil (Tulsi).
Dial in to retaining healthy blood pressure.*
4. The Healthy Aging Antioxidant
CoQ10 is a chemical naturally produced in the body, but our levels decrease with age. CoQ10+ Food Complex from New Chapter delivers this important nutrient in a fermented, highly active form—more active than typical unfermented CoQ10 (as shown in preclinical lab testing). Our fermented CoQ10 benefits include protecting cells from free radical damage and supporting multiple facets of cardiovascular health.*
Replenish with highly active CoQ10.
5. Focus on Blood Sugar
Cinnamon is known for its ability to help the body retain healthy blood sugar levels, key for cardiovascular health, and it helps maintain normal blood glucose following a meal.* Cinnamon Force™ from New Chapter is expertly formulated with two types of Cinnamon, and for each type delivers two kinds of extracts for Cinnamon’s full symphony of plant chemistries.
Choose supercritical blood sugar support.*
While the cardiovascular system is incredibly complex, simple steps help support it each day. Put your heart into the little things, and it can add up to a big difference.
