FEBRUARY IS AMERICAN HEART HEALTH MONTH. HERE ARE A FEW SIMPLE HABITS THAT YOUR HEART WILL THANK YOU FOR.
A recent study at Indiana University showed that healthy adults who entered an exercise program with a partner were significantly more likely to stick to the program. Make a commitment to your partner and to your heart to exercise regularly. Challenge each other to see who can rack up the most miles, or pick a local race to train for and compete in, together.
The American Heart Association recommends eating at least 4.5 cups of fruits and vegetables a day. One of the best things about eating fruits and veggies is that you will be less hungry and less likely to splurge. For optimum heart health, try to eat these 10 foods every day: apples, avocado, bananas, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, kale, oranges, spinach and tomatoes.
Tip: If you are finding it hard to fit all of these in, be sure to supplement with Fields of Greens ® (Item #:068) or Forever Nature’s 18 ® (Item #:271).

Recent findings by Chicago Medical School show that people who sleep less than 6 hours a night are twice as likely to have a heart attack. Good ‘sleep hygiene’ can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. How can you achieve this? Keep a set schedule, avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed, create comfortable environment in your bedroom and start a relaxation routine.
To calm down at night try Aloe Blossom Herbal Tea ® (Item #:200).

Keep your oral health in check
Did you know that heart disease and oral health are linked? There are two different connections between heart disease and your oral health:
- Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum (periodontal) disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gums.
- Oral health holds clues to overall health. Studies have shown that oral health can provide warning signs for other diseases or conditions, including heart disease.
To assure healthy teeth and gums, try Forever Bright® Toothgel (Item #:028).
