The Importance of Heart Health: How can we help?

Here at ProTec Nutra, we understand the importance and necessity of mental and physical wellbeing to all our clients and their customers during these unprecedented times. Each year, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) declares February as National Heart Month in the UK, raising awareness of the variety of heart conditions and what can be done to prevent such complications from occurring.

According to the British Heart Foundation, Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) is the UK’s and world’s number one killer, with an estimated 163,000 deaths from heart and circulatory diseases each year in the UK, 43,000 of which are premature, and these figures have dramatically increased during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Severe Coronavirus cases are linked to a higher risk of blood clots when the heart is not pumping as well as it should, which could lead to serious complications such as heart failure, heart rhythm disturbances, heart attack, and stroke.

The British Heart Foundation has recommended taking fish oil supplements high in Omega-3 to help reduce blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart attacks and strokes. 

Some benefits of Omega-3 include:

  • Lower Triglycerides 
  • Reduced Risk of Arrhythmia 
  • Slower Rate of Plaque Build
  • Slightly Lower Blood Pressure 

We offer a variety of products and ingredients that have proven to help aid the function of a normal healthy heart. These include: 

  • Folic Acid 
  • Vitamin B12 Cyanocobalamin
  • L-Selenomethionine
  • Flaxseed (Linseed) Flour
