What nutrient is most important for a healthy heart?
The nutrients found in apples reduce the bad LDL cholesterol and that’s good news for the heart. A number of components in apples, most notably fiber and phytonutrients have been found in studies to lower blood cholesterol and improve bowel function, and may be associated with a reduced risk of ischemic heart disease, stroke, prostate cancer, type II diabetes and asthma. Preliminary research from Finland indicates diets with the highest intake of apple phytonutrients were associated with a 46 percent reduction in the incidence of lung cancer. Findings indicate that two apples a day or 12 ounces of 100% apple juice reduced the damaging effects of the bad LDL cholesterol.
EFA’s are by far the most important for a healthy heart. EFA’s contain omega 3 fatty acids which are potent heart protectors and lipid correctors. It is important to know that EFA’s DECREASE THE INCIDENCE OF SUDDEN DEATH BY 41% IN HEART PATIENTS! That is more potent than any anti-arrhythmic drug on the market! EFA’s lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and may increase HDL (good cholesterol).
