Women's risk for heart attacks continues to be high.

And the heart attack is just the beginning . . .

According to new data presented at the American College of Cardiology, women tend to die more often at the hospital following a heart attack.[1] And the American Heart Association reports they tend to fare worse than their male counterparts if they survive.[2]

However, while the statistics continue to be disheartening when it comes to women and this health challenge, there is plenty women can do to defy these stats.

By making simple lifestyle changes, you can buck this trend and keep your heart beating strong. As research indicates, activity and diet continue to factor heavily into whether you're at risk.

How Exercise Keeps Heart Attacks Away From Women

No medicine in the world does more for your body - and heart in particular - like exercise. Simply by getting your heart pumping a little extra 2 or 3 times a week, you can reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke and or blood clots by as much as 20%. This is according to a study that followed over a million women with an average of 56 years for an average of 9 years.[3]

And just to help you understand how manageable this is – the study found simple physical activities like gardening or walking counted. You just need to get to a point where you sweat a little and get your heart pumping a little faster.

Use Diet To Prevent Heart Attacks

With all the hard work your heart does, it needs all the good nourishment you can give it. Volumes of research show that when women eat well, their heart pays them back generously.

There are particular nutrients your heart needs. Vitamin B12 reduces homocysteine levels. And high homocysteine levels have been linked to increased heart disease risk. Because of the low level of vitamin B12 in a vegan diet, vegans are particularly at risk here.

And the large scale Nurses Health Study revealed that the highest intake of vegetables – particularly leafy greens – was associated with the lowest risk for heart disease.[4]

Another important nutrient to make sure you’re getting in your diet is magnesium. Increasingly cardiologists are recommending their patients get more dietary magnesium. Why? Magnesium acts as a vasodilator, helping your blood vessels to expand, allowing more blood to flow. Current research indicates constricted blood vessels may be a significant factor in women’s risk for heart attacks. If so, then magnesium may be a potent heart protector for women.

Bonus for all you stressed and tired women: Magnesium also helps you feel calm and energized.

Want to get all of these dietary advantages in one easy mouthful? Chlorella is one of the few plant sources of the kind of vitamin B12 our body can use. It contains a nice supply of magnesium. And it gives you the kind of dense antioxidant, vitamin-rich nutrition associated with leafy greens – like chlorophyll and vitamin A.

Women, Prevent Heart Attacks With Smart Choices

It’s sometimes hard to imagine your heart conking out on you when you’re going through your day –

Your heart is “Old Reliable”. It never misses a beat . . .
That is . . . it does have trouble and stumble instead of beating strongly.

And as the data shows, women seem to experience more dire consequences from a heart attack.

Start giving your heart the support it needs before it gets to this point.

Give your heart the best medicine . . . healing power that surgery can’t come close to matching. Get moving. And eat right.

When you put this simple formula together, you’ve got a powerful recipe to keep your loyal heart beating strong well into the future.
