Improve Heart Health with a Cardiac Diet


The food we eat can have a profound effect on the health of our cardiovascular system. In fact, one study found that almost half of the deaths caused by heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes in a large group of Americans in one year were linked to a poor diet.

Fortunately, following a diet focused on heart health can improve outcomes. In this noontime webinar, you will discover the most up to date evidence on how diet can improve blood cholesterol, triglyceride, and sugar levels, regulate blood pressure, and reduce abdominal obesity with the goal of improving the health of your cardiovascular system.

Following a cardiac diet is a good recommendation for anyone who has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, or family history of heart disease. But even those without cardiovascular health concerns can benefit by losing weight, lowering blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar levels, and reducing their risk of future heart disease.

Note: This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.
