Secret Test PREDICTS a Heart Attack
A heart attack is one of the scariest things you can live through… if you’re lucky enough to live through it at all.
The only problem?
Lots of times, you don’t know you’re at risk for a heart attack until you’re having one.
But what if there was a simple test that could predict a heart attack while there was still time to stop it?
Believe it or not, this test exists… but for years, it’s only been used in emergency rooms.
Now, that’s all about to change.
And getting this test right away could end up saving your life.
My father-in-law died a week after getting a “clean bill of health” from his heart doctor.
The problem is that there haven’t been reliable tests that can tell us when someone is going to have a heart attack.
But that’s all changing… thanks to something called “troponin.”
Troponin is a protein which shows up in your blood when there is damage to heart tissue.
The troponin test is quick, cheap and accurate, and it’s long been used in emergency rooms to determine if you’ve had a heart attack.
Now, thanks to Norwegian researchers, we know that a troponin test can tell if you’re going to have a heart attack, too.
These scientists recently thawed the blood samples from a large population study of 9,000 people and found that high troponin levels predicted heart attack.
Some of the people in the study had high troponin levels as early as 14 years before a heart attack struck.
Getting a troponin test could be an easy way to see if you’re at risk for serious heart issues before it’s too late.
But there’s plenty more you can do to protect your heart, too.
Dr. Scott’s Inflammation and Heart Disease Program:
- Exercise: Exercise reduces inflammation, a key driver of heart disease. You don’t have to be too crazy, just get out and move your body around some every day.
- Eat Colorful Foods: This means getting enough vegetables in your diet. If you can’t stand veggies, you can “cheat” by getting your veggies and other superfoods in a powdered form. I take one every day by mixing it into yogurt and some berries.
- Avoid Vegetable Oils: Vegetable oils, especially trans fatty acids, are like setting off tiny bombs in your blood stream which increase inflammation.
- Fish Oil: One of the most powerful anti-inflammatories is fish oil. It works inside your body to keep inflammatory proteins low.
- Curcumin: This extract from turmeric is great at helping the body modulate inflammation. Unless you get a ton of this in your food, you should think about supplementing.
