Where to start when it comes to heart health

Healthier choices for better health

We’ve heard the statistics, watched the documentaries, read the books, and even listened to healthcare professionals. We know we should be making healthier choices,  but how many of us actually are? The current obesity epidemic in America has led to an array of health concerns such as immobilization, diabetes, and heart disease. Yet so many are still not making the necessary changes. Instead, many people wait to make changes after a major health complication – one which could have been prevented with lifestyle changes.


According to the CDC, 600,000 Americans die from heart disease a year; 1 out of every 4 deaths and the leading cause in deaths for both men and women. [1] Just think about how many of these deaths could have been prevented. While there is a lot of progress being made in detection of heart disease and treatment, there is little to no progress being made in lifestyle changes and prevention. The simplest way to prevent heart disease, and many other deadly diseases, is to live a healthy, active lifestyle. If we can increase our chances of not only living longer, but of living a life without constant doctor visits, pain, and medication, why wouldn’t we try it?

What can you do to live a healthier, longer life?

  • Do your best to consume healthy, nutrient-rich meals
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Make exercise and physical activities a priority
  • Limit your alcohol consumption
  • Avoid smoking cigarettes

Making just a few healthy changes can make the world of a difference. If you haven’t started your healthy lifestyle change, why not start now?  You can start with the Better Health Challenge to get you started on weight loss goals. Additionally, you can boost your health health with products that support a healthy cardiovascular system.


Prevent yourself and loved ones from disease and get started on a healthy transformation now.
