Do you want to live a long, healthy life?
The answer seems obvious doesn't it? We all want that for ourselves, however our diet and lifestyle doesn't always reflect it. The heart is the king of all organs, and it requires the most love and attention.
HEART DISEASE MURDERS MILLIONS
Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death among both women and men? In North America alone over 600 000 people die every year from a heart related illness. That is absolutely terrifying AND ALSO absolutely PREVENTABLE.
Oh, but that happens to other people, not me. Yea... that's what everyone says until they are on the operating table. YOU DON'T WANT TO BE THAT PERSON.
The good news is that taking care of your heart is simple.

Omega 3 fatty acids for heart health
One of the best ways to protect the heart is to consume plenty of Omega-3 essential fatty acids. These compounds help lower blood pressure and the concentration of triglycerides while also improving the overall function of your love organ.
What a protected heart means for you is that your blood flows better, you have more energy, more vitality and more strength while having less inflammation, less pain, less swelling and less chance of dying early (you're meant to live long and be prosperous).
Why are Omega 3s so important?
Omega 3s EPA/DHA are considered essential fats due to the fact that the body cannot make them itself, therefore they must be consumed from diet and supplements. The easiest way to get optimal levels of bioavailable and readily absorbable Omega 3 fatty acids are from taking a high quality fish oil supplement
