Cut Your Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke in Half
This is heart healthy month!
Research reveals you can cut your risk of heart attacks and strokes in half within one week, just by lowering your risk of blood clots! If you have already had one heart attack or stroke, then you know that you are 75% greater chance of having another.
A few simple steps will give you almost immediate protection!
Ginger Helps Thin Your Blood
Adding ½ tsp of this flavorful spice to your daily diet can lower your risk of forming an unnecessary clot in as little as seven days. To make iced lemon ginger tea, bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan, turn off the heat. Add 3 tbs, lemon juice and ¼ cup grated ginger root. Steep 20 minutes, strain into a pitcher. Add honey or other sweetener (not white sugar) to taste.
Smiling stamps out harmful stress
The more often you smile, the less likely you are to ever develop clots. In fact, simply putting on a more upbeat expression on a regular basis helped many people cut their clots risk by 27%. Smiling calms your central nervous system, reducing your output of cortisol, a stress hormone that makes blood cells more likely to clump. Do you have more weight and inches around the middle of your abdomen than other places, then you have a lot of cortisol in your body?
Oatmeal offers hours of protection
Having one cup and only one cup of steel oats for breakfast could lower your risk of a blood clot for up to four hours. Oatmeal is rich in compounds that stop blood cells from clumping together and sticking to artery walls. One cup of steel oats, one or two eggs, and a bowl of berries works well together.
Beet Juice Lowers Blood Pressure
Keeping your blood pressure under control helps protect artery walls from the damage that can lead to clots. Drinking 4 ounces of beet juice daily can lower your blood pressure 10 points for 24 hours. Find beet juice in most health food stores, and not powder form. If the taste is too strong, mix it with another juice or a can or diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale. It is the only drink that contains citrate that cleans out your liver. Has to be their diet, and has to be Canada Dry.
Citrus zest keeps blood vessels young.
Zest, the colorful outer skin of citrus fruits. It is natures number on source of hesperidin, a plant compound that could cut your risk of a stroke, or heart attack triggering clot as much as 29%. Similar to L-arginine, but after 90 days L-arginine will actually hurt your blood vessels then help them.
