In late January, almost no one had heard of the coronavirus. And even those who had never imagined a U.S. pandemic.
Just eight weeks later, the nation was shut down. And it was pretty much the ONLY thing we were worried about. Certainly not civil unrest and nationwide protests.
Eight weeks after that… well… we all know what happened next.
The fact is no one ever really knows what the next eight weeks will bring to the world outside. Hopefully, we can look back two months from now and say it was a little calm for once.
But I do know what you can do for yourself over those eight weeks. You can make one minor modification that can lead to major improvements where they matter most.
In fact, this one simple change of habit could help…
- SLASH blood pressure
- EASE heart strain
- BLOCK heart muscle injury
Best of all, there aren’t any big sacrifices you need to make to start reaping these rewards.
Supercharge your heart health in just 8 weeks
So are you ready for this “prescription” for better blood pressure and a healthier heart? All you have to do is eat MORE fruits and vegetables.
Really, that’s it. And given the wide variety of tasty, fresh produce in season right now, it’s the perfect time to get started.
The new study shows how this one delicious diet tweak can cut your risk of…
- heart disease
- heart attack
- and MORE
The new report is an in-depth analysis of old data on the more restrictive DASH diet, specifically designed to cut blood pressure.
In the initial experiment, volunteers were put on either a regular diet or DASH. But a third group got a sort of “DASH Light,” plan. It wasn’t nearly as restrictive as DASH but retained one of its core features.
The volunteers had to eat more fruits and veggies. They had 8.5 servings per day, or more than double the 3.5 servings a day in the more typical Western diet.
And the new analysis finds that even without all the other changes, the DASH Light group saw many of the same benefits as the full DASH diet.
Within two weeks, their blood pressure dropped. And those blood pressure levels remained lower for the entire eight-week study.
Tests also revealed lower levels of heart strain and injury to heart muscle over those same eight weeks.
Serve up better blood pressure by labor day
But here’s the most amazing part. These heart-healthy changes took place despite NO differences in sodium levels. And they even showed up when the volunteers DIDN’T lose weight.
You can recreate these same results at home simply by bumping up your own daily fruit and veggie servings.
For example, a small banana is a serving. And a larger one counts for about 1.5. Ditto for apples and pears and other fruits. A half-cup of berries is a serving or one cup of leafy greens.
You get the idea. You aren’t going to have to be eating from sunup until you crawl into bed at night because these aren’t massive amounts. So it’s easy to, say, double up and get two servings at a time with a slightly bigger bowl of berries or fix a simple salad that translates into three or four servings.
In other words, it’s super easy to do. And, as the new study shows, super-healthy too. In fact, if you get started today, you could slash your blood pressure… and drastically cut your risk for a heart attack or stroke… by the time you dig into the fruit salad at this year’s labor-day picnic.
