food-heart-300x300Are you looking to support the health of your heart? Here are five simple ways to promote cardiovascular wellness:

1. Get active. Just 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day will help support a healthy endothelium and NO production.

2. Lose weight. Even a small amount of weight loss can have a huge impact on your cardiovascular system.

3. Eat well. Cut out fast food and add more fruit, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy to your diet.

4. Increase your Omega-3 intake. In 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a qualified health claim for Omega-3 fatty acids and reduced risk of coronary heart disease for conventional foods and dietary supplements that contain EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids and meet other requirements laid out by the FDA.

5. Get your nutrients. Specific cardio products help supplement key nutrients to support your heart health.
