You Can’t Beet This For Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular related illness is the #1 killer in the industrialized world due to unbalanced lifestyle factors, nutrient-deficient diets, lack of exercise, and stress.  We’ll call these the Fatal Four.  Addressing all sides of the Fatal Four statistically brings vast benefits and reversal of symptoms to many heart disease sufferers.

According to new research, there’s one thing you can add to the diet department that can change your state of health almost immediately.  Researchers at The London School of Medicine have discovered that drinking just 500 ml of beet juice a day can significantly reduce blood pressure.

In fact, they were able to isolate the specific compound in the beets responsible for this improvement.

Do Your Lover A Favor This Year

Most people don’t realize that our intimate relationships impact our health and quality of life more than anything else possibly could.

There are certain chemical reactions that take place in our bodies that are triggered by the love in our life.  These reactions are irreplaceable, and the distinct result of our interaction with our lover.  Secretions of things like oxytocin, dopamine, and endorphins all play an amazing part in keeping us healthy, happy, and connected long-term.

For example, one study by UCLA scientists found that enhanced secretions of oxytocin were found to be protective against depression.  Oxytocin is a neuromodulator that’s secreted in response to general affection, childbirth, and sexual interaction.  Another study shows that dopamine (a reward-driven neurotransmitter) enhances blood flow, protects against renal failure, and helps fortify the circulatory system.

This leads me to the most important organ effected by love and affection, which is the human heart.  Your heart actually has a larger magnetic and electromagnetic field than your brain!  This means that you really do think and feel with your heart, and people who are closest to you will intrinsically impact your overall health the most.
