Cardiovascular disease including heart disease and stroke account for more than one – third (33.6%) of all U.S. deaths. In 2010, the total cost of cardiovascular disease in the United States were estimated to be $444 Billion. Treatment of these diseases accounted for about $1 of every $6 spent on healthcare in this country. As the U.S. population ages, this economic impact of cardiovascular disease on our nations health care system will become greater. M y H e a r t M y L i f e.org C. P. R. I n s t r u c t i o n s
Each Year about 950,000 Americans receive angioplasty and heart stents costing health care $150 billion. This potentially life saving procedure allows blood to flow through previously blocked arteries. Limiting damage to the heart muscle from a heart attack is already in progress or preventing a heart attack from happening altogether.
While having the most incompetent President in American History. Research has found that emotional stress created by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.) can worsen heart disease. Depression for instance, increases your risk of heart trouble by increasing low – grade inflammation, which in turn, leads to artery clogging.

With 60,000 miles of blood vessels which “if” laid out would track 2 1/2 times around earth… that’s an amazing fact. These vessels feed every organ, tissue and the trillions of cells in your body.
Heart disease inflicts between 8 & 10 million people +65 years old every year in the United States. There are 2600 heart attacks a minute each year in America ….with 160,000 being between the ages of 35 – 64 years of age. While 50% of these patients happen without warning and 300 known risk factors with 35 being well known. Cholesterol is one of them that gets to much attention and is over stated to often.
Research identifies two types of LDL: fluffy particles (harmless) and small, dense particles tiny enough to penetrate the blood vessel lining and become oxidized. These particles alone don’t cause heart disease, chronic inflammation, oxidation and stress also weakening cells lining inside of your blood vessels. Stress is bad for every cell in your body and has been linked to practically every disease known to mankind.
With some researchers believing: chronic stress is as bad for your health as smoking. When your under stress your nervous system will respond by releasing stress hormones including adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones cause you your heart to beat faster, muscles to tighten, blood pressure to rise. With most work situations being pressure packed today it’s important to get away from it.

Therefore, enjoying these five antioxidants superstar to improve cholesterol function and reduce chronic inflammation.

Also beans are an excellent source of lean protein contain soluble fiber that reduces heart disease risk by binding with cholesterol in the digestive tract, aiding it’s excretion and the liver’s ability to use it. In addition beans also improve insulin sensitivity which reduces insulin sensitivity, cholesterol – molecule damage and increases satiety.
Green tea offers epigallocatechin gallate (E.G.C.G.) a polyphenol that helps liver cells capture circulating LDL, essentially pulling it from the bloodstream. In addition look for green tea blended with tulsi (also called holy basil), an adaptogenic herb shown to relieve heart damaging stress. Think Goodness:dark chocolate may reduce heart disease risk by one third boosting HDL ~ reducing LDL cholesterol. Containing beneficial flavanols, just be sure it contains 60 percent or more cocoa content.
