You give from the heart and you love fully with your heart but what are you doing to keep your heart healthy? Heart disease is the number one killer in our country taking one life every 34 seconds. Shocking isn’t it, that we are willing to eat so poorly that we put ourselves at risk for heart attack and strokes (which is a brain attack). The good news is you can prevent it by just taking better care of yourself. If you won’t do it for yourself what about doing it for your wife, husband, mother, father, brother, sister, especially for your son or daughter.
Your lifestyle has a tremendous effect on your heart health, it’s time to make some changes in your life. None of us are guaranteed a tomorrow so start now, you may be preventing a potentially deadly disease. Some of the changes will be done easily while others may be a bit more challenging for you but you are worth it don’t you think!
Start with a little exercise and build from there. Make better healthier food choices. Eating smart for your heart involves a diet rich in lean protein, fresh fruit and vegetables, soluble fiber, whole grains, low-fat dairy, unsaturated fats, plant sterols, and foods rich in B-vitamins.
Here are some examples: lean protein-Turkey Breast, skinless chicken breast, egg whites, lean red meats, low-fat yogurt, skim or 1% milk, low-fat cheese, beans and lentils, all seafood and fish, split peas, chickpeas, and tofu.
Fruits and Vegetables that one is easy but try to eat as many different colors, believe it or not different colors in fruits and vegetables give you different vitamins
Soluble Fiber: Oats, brown rice, barley, oat bran, dried beans and peas, rye, seeds, vegetables ( carrots, corn, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes). Fruits, ( apples, strawberries, oranges, bananas, nectarines, and pears).
Whole grains: whole wheat, multigrain, rye, millet, oat bran, oat, and cracked wheat. Read the labels although it may say wheat don’t be fooled it’s a blend of white and whole wheat, it must say 100% whole wheat. Cereals usually pack in tons of sugar so check labels carefully, pick ones that have 6 or less grams of sugar per serving, as well as 2 grams or less of fat per serving.

Why should Core Complex become part of my daily routine?
Core Complex daily supplement packets target four key areas of heart health
maintenance: cholesterol, triglycerides, homocysteine and oxidative stress.
Cholesterol is an important marker for heart health, but triglycerides,
another kind of blood fat, are also important markers of cardiovascular
health. Homocysteine is an amino acid found naturally in your body, although
excessive homocysteine levels in the blood often lead to serious heart health
conditions. And perhaps most importantly, along with a low-fat diet and
exercise, supplementation is the first line of defense against numerous heart
health risk factors. (Herbalifeline® softgels and Tri-Shield® Neptune Krill
Oil softgels are included in Core Complex.)
How is Neptune Krill Oil unique?
Neptune Krill Oil or NKO® comes from a tiny crustacean in the
Antarctic. NKO® is unique from fish oils in that it contains three groups of
heart-healthy compounds: not only the Omega-3 fatty acids, but also a healthy
blend of phospholipids and antioxidants. This unique blend helps to maintain
cardiovascular health by counteracting oxidative stress.* In other words,
NKO® is a powerful antioxidant.
Why is it important to start taking heart health supplements now?
A: Don’t wait.
The best way to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system is to start now,
before you have developed risk factors for heart disease. Along with a
low-fat diet and exercise, the active ingredients in Core Complex, Tri-Shield®
, Niteworks® , Herbalifeline® and Mega Garlic Plus help
maintain key heart health indicators already within a normal range.**
wise to consider a heart health program today. Foods containing at least 0.65
gram per serving of plant sterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily
intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and
cholesterol, might reduce the risk of heart disease. A packet of Core Complex
supplies 1.3 grams of plant sterols.
