Every year heart disease kills millions of people around the globe. In fact, it’s the leading cause of death.
Forty percent of deaths in the US are caused by heart disease, and in many cases it’s completely preventable.
The solution is relatively simple in theory, eat healthy, manage stress, and exercise.
However, putting those words of wisdom into practice can be tricky.
It’s particularly challenging because there are so many factors that affect the health of your heart – from good sleep to the type of foods you eat and how you exercise.
Let’s explore some of the surprising facts about heart disease to help you take better care of your health.
#1 The Silent Killer
Since 1984, heart disease has killed more women every year than men. It’s more deadly to women than all types of cancer combined. And when women have a heart attack, they don’t often understand their symptoms.
For many women the symptoms of a heart attack feel a lot like the flu. Common symptoms include nausea, indigestion, and shoulder aches. Men generally experience chest pain.
#2 Get a Flu Shot to Cut Your Heart Disease Risk
What’s the connection between your heart health and the flu? According to physicians at Harvard Medical School, when you get the flu, your body has a significant immune response, which causes inflammation.
This inflammation causes the plaque inside your blood vessels to become unstable and cause blockages and potential heart attacks.
Additionally, changes in your lungs from the flu virus lower blood oxygen levels.
Your heart has to work harder to deliver the same amount of oxygen to your brain and tissues. Finally, the flu virus can directly damage heart muscle cells.
What does this mean? It means that getting a flu shot can cut your risk of a heart attack or stroke by up to 50 percent!
#3 The Diabetes Link
There are things you can do to take control of your health. A healthy diet and exercise are essential and can reverse type 2 diabetes and reduce your risk of a heart attack. Learn your risk by having a few tests done. Knowledge is power.
#4 The Stress Connection
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that stress has an impact on heart health. However, you may be surprised to learn that you’re more likely to have a heart attack on Monday morning than at any other time of the week.
Additionally, women who go on vacation at least twice a year less likely to suffer a heart attack or die from heart disease.
#5 Laugh More, Eat Dark Chocolate, and Have Sex
All three of these joys of life have a positive impact on heart health. They’re certainly a fun way to stay healthy.
Heart disease may be the number one killer but it doesn’t have to be your story. Talk to your doctor, know your risk and take steps today to begin to reduce your risk.

Additionally, the ingredients in Cardio Support overlap their abilities, to enhance one another’s effects, increasing long-term heart health and protection against degenerative disease.
Cardio Support is the only natural supplement that we are aware of which utilizes enteric coating technology to safely release the active ingredients in the stomach.
This delivery method not only protects the enzymes such as Nattokinase but also greatly enhances the efficacy of other ingredients present such as Resveratrol and L-Glutathione.
No other formula covers so many ‘angles’ to manage and protect your cardiovascular system, and yet Cardio Support is still natural with no known side effects.
