These Simple Things Can Stop More Than 80% of Heart Attacks

Find out how you can stop one of the most fatal diseases in the world!

50% of heart attacks happen suddenly, without any warning signs. They’re caused by a blockage in the blood flow that goes right to your heart, a condition called atherosclerosis. The arteries get clogged and that stops the blood from going to your heart.

If the clogs aren’t removed on time, the heart muscle will start to die, which leads to heart attack.

5 simple lifestyle changes can stop 80% of heart attacks. According to a new study done by Karolinska Institute, certain lifestyle changes can drastically lower your risk of getting a heart attack. A study published in 2004 has shown that 90% of heart diseases can be successfully prevented by making lifestyle and diet changes.

  2. Physical activity (walking, cycling 40 minutes and more on a daily basis/ exercising at least 2 times a week).
  3. Reduced alcohol intake (10-30gr. per day).
  4. Avoid smoking.
  5. Maintaining a healthy waist line (less than 95cm).
Which foods are good for your heart?

Most people don’t know that trans-fat and refined carbohydrates are more hazardous than saturated fat. The reason why people don’t know this is because the food industry started producing low-fat foods and started substituting saturated fat with the damaging trans-fat, refined sugar and processed fructose. This approach of the food industry led to obesity and many heart diseases.

What’s the best diet for having a healthy heart?

The most important thing is to avoid trans-fat and completely eliminate processed foods. If you want to reduce the risk of getting heart diseases, avoid sugar, processed fructose and cereals. Eat more raw organic foods, fruits and organic meat.

Here’s the best source of healthy fats:
  • Avocado, butter made from organic milk, raw milk products, coconut oil, egg whites, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, organic meat…
Should you eat more fruits?

According to a study presented this year at the ESC Congress in Barcelona, people who regularly eat fruits have 40% less chance of getting a heart attack and 32% less chance of developing other conditions. Fruits are rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and all other nutritive substances that can improve your health and stop inflammations.

On the other hand, you should eat fruits in moderation since they contain high levels of fructose, which has a negative impact on the heart.

The worst thing you can do about your health is waiting for heart attack symptoms without doing anything to prevent them. Protect your heart and stop permanent heart damage:

  • Avoid all types of sugars.
  • Eat unprocessed animal fat.
  • Don’t sit more than 3 hours a day.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Take vitamin D.
  • Reduce stress levels.
