Herbs to Prevent Heart Disease


(OrganicJar) Cardiovascular disease is the No 1 cause of death in America with at least 58,800,000 million Americans suffering from some form of heart disease. The shocking part is that most heart attacks can be prevented by simple changes in your lifestyle. Besides the obvious eating healthy food and exercising, herbs have been scientifically proven to keep your hearth health.

Here are some of the most potent ‘hearth healthy’ herbs:

Garlic: One half clove of garlic daily will help lower blood cholesterol levels by about 9%. It can also lower triglycerides and LDL (’bad’) cholesterol levels. Garlic also makes blood platelets less sticky, so they do not adhere to the walls of your heart’s arteries, forming dangerous blood clots and plaque. It also lowers blood pressure and improves the flow of blood to all organs. To avoid garlic breath, you can take Kyolic, a liquid odorless garlic preparation.

Gugulipid: This plant extract can be found in health food stores, and has been known to lower cholesterol by 21% and triglycerides by 25%, in as low as three to eight weeks! HDL (’good’) cholesterol rose during this time period. Gugulipid also helps to prevent blood clots.

Ginkgo Biloba: This is a wonderful herb used by Chinese Healers for centuries and is widely used in Europe to heal the heart and improve memory loss. It increases blood flow to all organs and cells, and reduces stickiness in the blood.

Capsaicin: Red Peper lowers cholesterol levels and reduces the tendency for blood clots, which also reduces your risk of heart attack. Some people get heartburn from this, so it is best to take this just before eating a meal. Capsaicin also helps you lose weight because it boosts metabolism, which is also an added benefit to a healthy heart.

Vitamin E: Vitamin E, taken either by supplements or in food, can help to prevent heart disease. Vitamin E seems to help prevent coronary heart disease, which is a disease that is caused by fatty plaque clogging the arteries that feed the heart. Some food sources for Vitamin E include oils, nuts, seeds, and green leafy vegetables.

  1. I’m pleased to see this list, as the multi-vitamin we recently switched to has 4 out of 5 on this list in them. That’s good news, we used to take Centrum until we discovered most of Centrums ingredients were synthetic and difficult to digest, and they were lacking adequate levels of the most important things.

    Here’s what we switched too, very potent stuff. You feel the energy increase from taking them and it lasts through the day. I recommend taking them with breakfast or lunch, the energy can keep you awake at night.

  2. Thanks for the article, very nice!

  3. A close friend of mine died of a Heart Attack, his heart condition is caused by him being so obese.-,*

  4. I wonder if you’ll simply have to take these raw, like the garlic, or if you can incorporate some of these items into your dinners or lunches. I know that some of these are probably supplements, but then again, I think i would feel much more comfortable putting these into my regular diet.

  5. Heart attack could be prevented with exercise, diet and some food supplements like CoQ10..;,

  6. Garlic is very good and that is why I have it every day.

  7. Is there any other kind of herbs that can help you recover in heart disease?
