Heart Disease Prevention: 28 Day Plan
Dr Oz shared the Heart Disease Symptoms, CRP Test and Healthy Artery Stretch to help you fight Heart Disease, the #1 killer of women. Next, he shared a comprehensive 28 Day Plan to help people lose weight and improve heart health. It may not sound like much, but these simple changes, such as Sriracha Sauce, Beet Juice, and Black Currant Juice, could end up saving your life.
Dr Oz met a woman from the audience who is worried about Heart Disease, since her brother died last year of a Heart Attack at age 55. Now she is taking control of her own health and making it a priority.
Sriracha Sauce Review: Prevents Heart Disease
For week one of his 28 Day Plan, Dr Oz wanted to focus on eating with your heart in mind. Look for Sriracha Sauce, which will really get your metabolism fired up. If you have a taste for spicy foods, you will love this one.
You can also add Kidney Beans, which are rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids that Dr Oz is always recommended. He suggested Sweet Potatoes as well, which are loaded with antioxidants.
Beet Juice & Black Currant Juice
In week two, Dr Oz suggested focusing on drinking for your heart. He suggested Black Currant Juice as a great option. You can also find Beet Juice. Just one glass per day has been proven to lower your blood pressure.
A woman from the audience tried Beet Juice and concluded that it tasted like beets. Dr Oz said if the taste bothers you, you can dilute it with water.
Look for these juices at your grocery store or health food retailer.
Dr Oz: Call For Less Stress
Reducing your stress is another way to improve your heart function. For week three, Dr Oz wanted to focus on the phone. He suggested making time twice per week to catch up with a friend or family member on the phone.
But on the other hand, he said you should not let the phone intrude on your life 24/7. Dr Oz suggested not taking phone calls when you are in the middle of a meal.
Dr Oz: Walgreens Pharmacy Heart Health
For the final week of his 28 Day Plan to fight Heart Disease, Dr Oz invited Stacia Woodcock from Walgreens to talk about the pharmacy chain’s holistic approach to heart health. You can visit your local store to have your Blood Pressure checked.
Walgreens also offers heart health products, and pharmacists can advise you on which products may be right for your personal medical needs.
Those are four easy ways you can tweak your routine to boost your heart health.
