Take Flax Seed for Optimum Heart Health

triglycerides. Flax seed also contains high levels of ALA, which indicates that it would
also have these same effects.

Reportedly those who have diets with a high ALA content are much less likely to have
a heart attack. Two fatty acids that ALA produces, EPA and DHA, help with avoiding
clots and prevent plaque build ups occurring, which both contribute to heart attacks.

Often those who have had one heart attack are at a higher risk of experiencing
another possibly fatal one. Adding an omega 3 fatty acid supplement containing ALA,
DHA or EPA can reduce this risk considerably, possibly preventing serious strokes or
even death. This Means flaxseed is a perfect supplement for anyone with a history of
heart attacks in the family or having had one before themselves.

A natural way to lower your blood pressure is by taking omega 3 fatty acids. Many
people choose to take flax seed oil instead of fish oil because there isn't the risk of it
having high levels of damaging mercury.

If heart disease runs in you family, you have had a heart attack previously, have high
blood pressure, high cholesterol or blood clots, start supplementing your diet with
flax seed. There is a powder form you can put onto your cereal or in smoothies,
milkshakes or salads. You can use the oil in all the above also, or if you are
extremely fussy and sensitive to taste, the capsule form would be more suited to
you.

Heart health is definitely one of the most important aspects of your physical being.
So don't wait until it's too late and you have a heart attack, or worse, a fatality.
There are so many benefits overall to taking

dietary supplement, you will notice you start feeling better in not much time at all.
Your skin will glow, and you moods will elevate, contributing to less overall stress and
less pressure on your heart.
