No Pressure! A natural approach to heart & cholesterol health

How to take a natural approach to heart & cholesterol health

More and more people are choosing natural remedies to control cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure and keep their hearts healthy. While conventional medicines have always been the go-to treatments to treat heart health, natural remedies are also proving to be very effective.

Here are the top 6 natural remedies to treat heart and cholesterol health:

 1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Did you know that omega-3 fatty acids can help to protect your heart?  The EPA and DHA found in fish oil helps to lower cholesterol levels and maintain good heart health. Eating one or two servings of fatty fish such as such as salmon, trout, tuna, herring or sardines per week can make a significant difference to your heart health. But don’t forget to include other foods rich in omega–3 fatty acids such as canola oil, flaxseed oil, soybeans or walnuts into your diet. Taking omega-3 fatty acid supplements such as Solgar Omega 3-6-9 or Flaxseed Oil from Absolute Organix regularly will also reduce your chances of heart disease.
