Reverse Heart Disease in 6 Weeks?!?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

These days, it seems like everyone has an opinion on how to beat heart disease.

And most of their advice starts with “You shouldn’t…” or “Don’t…”

But as it turns out, an international team of researchers has discovered there’s one thing you should do if you want to keep a healthy heart…

You see, they’ve discovered a special supplement that can keep your ticker going strong well into your golden years.

Even better, it starts reversing heart disease in as little as six weeks. 

For thousands of years, people have been using it olive leaf as a cure-all for fevers, low energy and even to nasty infections.

But it looks like the humble olive leaf has even more to offer… it can help you fight heart disease.

For a new study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers tested olive leaf extract in men who were already having blood pressure problems.

The participants were split into two groups. One took olive leaf extract and the other didn’t.

In just six weeks, folks taking olive leaf extract saw significant reductions in both blood pressure and cholesterol levels — two of the main villains behind heart disease.

And these results were after only six weeks. Just imagine what taking olive leaf extract for a year or two could do for your heart!

Researchers believe olive leaf extract is so good for your heart because it’s chock-full of powerful antioxidants and phenolic compounds that help neutralize free radicals.

You can get olive leaf extract supplements or teas at your local natural health store.

This study used a formula of two compounds found in olive leaves, 136 mg of oleuropein and 6 mg of hydroxytyrosol. Be sure to check labels for proper amounts.

Live well,
