Keeping Your Heart Healthy

Keeping Your Heart Healthy

Jul 06, 2021 Alex Brecher

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., but it is largely considered preventable. Healthy lifestyle choices that you make can improve risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high blood sugar. 

Another daily choice you can make to support a healthy heart is to get all of the nutrients you need to maintain optimal nutrition. Certain vitamins, minerals, and other factors are all linked to heart health. PatchAid Patches can provide a range of nutritional components.

Heart-Healthy Diet and Lifestyle

Natural ways to support heart health include the following.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight or losing excess pounds.
  • Quitting or avoiding tobacco.
  • Getting plenty of physical activity.
  • Managing stress. 
  • Increasing sleep.

A diet that is high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and low in unhealthy fats and sugar, can also lower heart disease risk. Foods such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains, nuts, low-fat dairy products, fish, and beans can all improve heart health. Fried foods, sugar-sweetened foods and beverages, red and processed meat, and refined grains such as bread, pasta, and rice can all have the opposite effect.

Vitamins, Minerals, and More for Heart Health

Having good general nutrient status can support heart health. Some vitamins, such as folate, are directly linked to heart health. Others may indirectly support heart health. For example, iron is needed so you have energy to exercise without fatigue, and sufficient chromium can enable proper blood sugar regulation.

The PatchAid Multivitamin Plus Patch with or without Iron is available to promote vitamin and mineral sufficiency. Another patch, the Omega-3 Plus Patch, has long-chain and plant-based omega-3 fats, as well as antioxidants that can support cardiovascular health.

There is no need for concern if you are already taking one or more PatchAid Patches for other reasons, such as the Calcium and Vitamin D3 Patch for bone health, or the Glucosamine and Chondroitin Patch for joint support. PatchAid patches are designed to be safe if you use more than one at a time.

Easy Nutritional Support from PatchAid

PatchAid Patches are easy to use. You can put them on anytime, without worrying about taking them on a full or empty stomach. There is also no concern about indigestion or needing to swallow large capsules, which can be the case when you take oral supplements. 

Instead, just put your PatchAid Patch on a clean, dry area of skin without hair. Then take it off 8 hours later. The nutrients are absorbed through a transdermal delivery system, without going through your GI tract. The patches are flexible and designed to stick even through heavy sweating. That means you can go exercise and give your heart a good workout to keep it even healthier!

Nutrition needs to play a role if you are determined to keep your heart as healthy as possible. Along with choosing the right foods, it may turn out that taking some extra vitamins might keep your heart in tip-top shape. Be sure to check with your healthcare provider about any health concerns, and to ask which PatchAid Patches might be the right choice as a convenient way to get the nutrients you need.
