February is American Heart Month

Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S? Over 800,000 people die from cardiovascular disease every year. Women don’t always associate physical signs and symptoms with a cardiac event. As a result, the AHA reports that women are 15 percent more likely than men to die of a heart attack and are twice as likely to have a second heart attack in the six years following the first. The numbers of heart attacks are most frightening– almost every minute in the U.S. someone has a heart attack – and for those who survive the heart attack, they often have severe limitations as a result of the damage done to their heart.

Are you ready for the good news? 80 percent of all heart disease is preventable. That means you have a choice. If you have high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, or are overweight, you are on the pathway to becoming a heart disease statistic. So, let’s talk about what you can do starting today to put yourself on the path to prevention and keep your heart healthy. At Women’s Wellness Comprehensive Care, our mission is to provide our patients with the best healthcare and the most quality products. Below you’ll see four heart-healthy supplements we recommend if you have a family history of heart disease or simply want to pave your way to prevention.
