The No.1 PROVEN remedy for heart health (Hint: it’s NOT statins)
There’s a TIME-TESTED secret to a stronger, better, healthier heart.
This one has been used since Biblical times for better health and a longer life… and now, it’s backed by the latest cutting-edge research.
In ONE STEP, you can:
- LOSE weight
- STOP a stroke
- PROTECT your heart
- PREVENT diabetes
- …and more!
It’s even been proven to help keep bones strong as you grow old.
But today, let’s focus on heart protection, because the latest research proves yet again that when it comes to your ticker…
You need to make some time for the Mediterranean diet!
Now, I know “diet” isn’t a popular word…
But in truth, this is the one diet that feels like you’re hardly on one; instead, you’ll lead a full and satisfying lifestyle – and it’s amazingly easy to follow.
So friends, don’t think of it as a diet…
Think of it instead as the world’s greatest heart “drug.”
The BENEFIT of drugs… WITHOUT the drugs
You know the story with meds that are supposed to “protect” your heart.
Even when they work… even when they deliver… even when they help ensure you never have a heart problem… they can undermine those very same benefits with side effects.
Statins, for example, are often touted for their heart benefits. I don’t buy it; most of the studies behind them have more conflicts than a “Real Housewives” episode.
But even if you believe the highly suspect research, you know the drugs can cause everything from immediate problems such as agonizing muscle pain to long-term risks like diabetes.
Worth it? Not when you have this OTHER option… because the new study found something that STUNNED mainstream doctors.
The Mediterranean diet can deliver ALL of the “benefits” of statins and other common drugs… but without the actual drugs or ANY of the risks!
The long-term study of more than 26,000 older women finds this easy-to-follow lifestyle will dramatically cut your risk of serious heart problems including:
- Heart attack
- Coronary arterial revascularization
- Coronary death
Ready for the most important part?
It works for that all-important and highly elusive “primary prevention,” or preventing a first heart problem.
That’s critical. Once you have a first heart problem, you’re at risk for everything else. Stop that first one from happening, and you’ll keep your risks nice and low.
And in the new study, that’s just what happened.
Women who followed a Mediterranean diet even moderately had a 23 percent lower risk of a first heart problem… while women who followed it even more closely saw that risk plunge by 28 percent.
They also enjoyed:
- Less inflammation
- Better blood sugar control
- Decreased insulin resistance
- A lower BMI
And while the study was on women, men often see the same benefits as well.
Here are the main tenants of the Mediterranean diet…
You’ll give up most carbs (even whole grains) and limit your red meat.
Instead, you’ll focus on fatty fish, poultry, and fresh produce.
And you’ll cook with olive oil, and make liberal use of herbs and spices.
Don’t forget: on this “diet,” you can absolutely feel free to polish it all off with a glass of wine!
