Treat Your Heart Right In February

Treat Your Heart Right In February, And All Year Long

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, are the number one killer in the nation. Since 1963, the president has declared February National Heart Month. You can support the health of your heart with diet and exercise, and a number of supplements.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are naturally-occurring fats commonly found in plants and some fish. The name “Essential” refers to the fact that the human body cannot make these fats on its own, so we must get them from our foods. EFAs have important health benefits for patients at risk for heart disease.

The EFAs, particularly the Omega-3s, have been shown to contribute to cardiovascular health in many ways. Omega-3 fatty acids are natural, mild blood thinners, and seem to work by reducing the "stickiness" of blood cells, which could prevent complications like blood clots and stroke. Omega-3 may also reduce hypertension: studies of large groups of people have found that the more Omega-3 fatty acids people consume, the lower their overall blood pressure levels.

EFAs are also catching the attention of many doctors. As more and more research is published on EFAs regarding their effectiveness for controlling blood pressure and cholesterol, doctors are welcoming the idea of recommending these products for some of their patients, particularly for their patients for whom side effects from prescription medications are troublesome.

How can we increase the amounts of Essential Fatty Acids in our diets? Essential Fatty Acids can be included in the diet by replacing cooking oil and salad dressings with olive oil, and eating less red meat, but probably the easiest way to increase the EFAs in your diet is to take a nutritional supplement. An excellent choice is a supplement that contains both of the Essential Fatty Acids Omega-3 and Omega-6 from plant sources such as flaxseed oil.
