5 Factors to Control Your Risk For Heart Attack and Stroke
Did you know that heart disease is the second highest cause of death for Hispanic adults? It’s a sobering statistic, but the good news is that you have the power to lower your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. (1)
Here’s one heart-healthy change you can make today that may surprise you: cut out added sugar. Researchers found that adults who got more than 10% of their calories from added sugars had much higher rates of death from heart disease. (2)
Too much sugar overloads your liver, which converts that sugar to fat. Over time, this stress on your liver can lead to diabetes, a risk factor for developing heart disease. Not only that, sugar can raise your blood pressure, so skip soda and eat fresh, not processed, foods. (3)
Your heart is the hardest-working muscle in your body. In fact, it beats around 100,000 times each day—nearly 3 billion beats over your lifetime—so it needs every bit of TLC you can offer.
Here’s some TLC straight from Santo Remedio, our Take Care of Your Heart Bundle.
