Delicious Snack STOPS Heart Attacks
When your doctor tells you to start eating healthier, it can send chills up your spine.
You start seeing images of steamed kale, endless salads, beet juice, and other less-than-exciting options.
Sure, you can eat those things if you like them.
But whoever said that eating healthy means depriving yourself of tasty treats?
Not me! I only eat things I love.
And as a recent study showed, one of my all-time favorite snacks can actually help prevent a heart attack.
Even if you’re already at risk.
This healthy, tasty treat is yogurt!
Yogurt is already well-known for being a healthy food staple. It’s been shown to prevent osteoporosis, improve digestive health, and strengthen your immune system.
But researchers from Boston and Howard Universities wanted to find out just what kind of impact it could have on cardiovascular disease.
To determine this, they examined two studies that included 55,000 women and 18,000 men who had completed food questionnaires and that also detailed major health events (such as heart attacks or stroke).
The results were impressive.
Women who ate the most yogurt had a 30% reduced risk of heart attack, and men had a 19% risk reduction.
In fact, anyone who ate more than 2 servings per week had a 20% lower risk of major coronary heart disease or stroke.
What’s even more impressive is that the people in the study already had high blood pressure, which means they were at a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and more.
If eating yogurt could achieve these kinds of results in such a high-risk group, imagine how beneficial it is in healthy individuals.
In fact, you don’t have to imagine. Numerous studies have shown that eating yogurt reduces the overall incidence of heart disease.
One of the key reasons is because yogurt contains phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium—all of which play a role in keeping your heart healthy by regulating blood pressure and metabolism.
It can even help you lose weight!
That’s a tasty health snack that packs a powerful health punch.
I like to put yogurt in my smoothies, and I also enjoy eating it with some blueberries and granola. Of course, the options are endless.
However you like yours, just make sure it’s plain and full-fat, that it contains live probiotics, and that there’s no added sugar.
To a brighter day,
Dr. Richard Gerhauser, M.D.
