REVERSE Heart Disease for 10 Cents a Day
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
It seems like everyone is telling you to eat more fiber these days.
And with good reason — this miracle nutrient is key to keeping your blood sugar balanced, your bowels healthy and your waist trim.
But there’s one more reason you should be eating fiber — your heart.
You see, according to European researchers, a certain type of fiber can help you REVERSE heart disease.
And the best part — it only costs about a dime a day.
I’m talking about inulin, a powerful prebiotic fiber that encourages the growth of “good” gut bacteria.
And since having a balanced gut can boost your overall health, a team of French and Belgian scientists wanted to see if inulin had a direct effect on heart disease.
For the study, researchers split mice that were already suffering from heart disease into two groups.
They were both fed unhealthy, Western-style diets — but one group also got inulin supplements
Next, they tracked damage in endothelial cells, which line the walls of blood vessels. Any damage to these special cells is a clear indication of heart disease.
After the 12-week trial, the scientists found that the inulin had completely REVERSED endothelial damage.
It’s as if this special fiber erased any damage done by the poor diet.
This means the inulin can help negate the effects of poor diet and stop heart disease before it starts!
Of course, this doesn’t give you the green light to gorge on French fries and doughnuts. Instead, it’s an all-natural way to help keep your heart in tiptop shape while following a healthy diet.
Experts believe inulin is so effective at shielding your heart because it increases the number of bacteria in your gut that produce nitric oxide, a powerful chemical that improves blood flow.
Plus, inulin ups the amount of a special gut bug called Akkermansia, which helps fight the negative effects of obesity, like heart disease.
You can get inulin supplements at your local natural health store or through internet retailers like vitacost.com for about 10 cents a day.
Better heart health for pennies a day? Sounds good to me.
