3 Foods to Protect Heart Health

It’s easy to assume that making just one healthy choice doesn’t matter all that much. But it does! One healthy food or drink can have a direct impact on the endothelium, the organ that produces and releases Nitric Oxide (NO) and a handful of other hormones and chemicals that influence all aspects of cardiovascular health. Here are three foods and drinks that protect the heart:

Green tea

Herbalife Green Tea

Research shows that green tea has an “acute beneficial affect on endothelial function.” Enjoying a cup or more of green tea daily, or taking green tea extract as a supplement, is an excellent way to support heart health. Herbalife Green Tea is a delicious option that requires no brewing.

 

Pomegranate3 foods to protect heart health

More than just a delicious snack or drink, pomegranate is one of the most powerful antioxidants for supporting endothelial health. Pomegranate has been shown to support NO, which supports the function of the endothelial cells.

Garlic

Herbalife Mega Garlic Plus

Garlic is an excellent food for supporting healthy circulation and blood pressure, maintaining cholesterol levels already within a normal range, providing antioxidant protection, and enhancing immune system function. Youcan add garlic to your diet or take it as a supplement. Herbalife Mega Garlic Plus supports circulation and cardiovascular health, releasing active ingredients once through the stomach for full absorption.*
