The surprising secret to heart health
Take a moment today to pay tribute to your body's unsung hero -- the one you hardly ever notice.
When your immune system is firing on all cylinders like it's supposed to, you could get exposed to all kinds of nasty germs... and yet never get so much as a sniffle.
But that's not even close to everything your immune system does. Even if you THINK yours is working right... even if you haven't had so much as a sneeze in years... it could be just a little bit off.
And that could set the stage for something you CAN'T feel until it's too late.
New research shows how your immune system plays a key role in heart health -- and if yours is anything less than optimal, you could be leaving yourself open to a heart attack.
The new study looked at the levels of several disease-beating, germ-fighting, and downright life-saving antibodies, including immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin M (IgM), and the antibodies that work against the oxidized form of LDL cholesterol.
While regular LDL isn't the villain it's been made out to be (and often plays a key role in protecting you -- as you'll see in a study I'm going to share next week), the oxidized form really can do a number on you.
So not surprisingly, folks with the lowest levels of these three antibodies faced the highest risk of a heart attack.
What IS surprising is that the most important antibody of all for heart protection wasn't the one that fights off oxidized LDL.
It was IgG, the immune-system antibody best known for battling viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Folks with the highest levels of IgG had the lowest risk of a heart attack -- and that protection level was completely independent of other risk factors such as blood pressure and cholesterol.
That means boosting your immune system could be the single most important step you could take for heart protection -- and fortunately, you don't need a drug with side effects for that.
There are simple, safe, and effective ways to arm your immune system for battle so it can fight off everything from the common cold to a killer heart attack.
I recommend starting with glutathione, the "master antioxidant" that's one of the most powerful immune-boosters around -- and it's proven to protect against some of today's leading killer diseases including cancer, Alzheimer's, and heart disease.
I shared the full story on glutathione, including a simple way to see if your own levels might be too low, in the February 2015 edition of my subscription newsletter, Health Revelations.
