Heart disease is the leading cause of death, affecting one out of every four men in America. Nearly half of all men have at least one of the top three heart disease risk factors: high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, or they smoke.
In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional proclamation designating Men’s Health Week every June leading up to Father’s Day. Intended to heighten awareness of preventable men’s health problems and encourage national dialogue for early detection and screening, it is sobering to realize American women still outlive men by five years. The fact is men are less likely to seek medical help until a situation reaches dire consequences.
The good news is heart health benefits can be realized by following some common-sense guidelines:
The prostate gland likewise benefits from a heart healthy diet, regular vigorous exercise, and proper weight maintenance efforts. Studies show a correlation in reducing incidents of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia, aka enlarged prostate) and ED (erectile dysfunction).
To advance men’s health, consider these two innovative QOL supplements:
June also happens to be National Dairy Month, celebrating the benefits of consuming dairy foods since 1937. While nutrition guidelines constantly evolve, experts agree heart-healthy diets can and should include daily servings of reduced-fat cheese, yogurt, and milk. Vitamins and minerals supplied by dairy products are helpful in reducing high blood pressure and protecting from the risk of heart attack and stroke.
For people with lactose intolerance, QOL’s Ameal BP® with AmealPeptide® is an effective way to ingest casein, a component of milk protein. Designed to maintain blood pressure already within normal range, this supplement uses a proprietary enzymatic process to make active small proteins (known as tripeptides VPP and IPP) available to the body.* Free of side effects with an undetectable lactose level under .05%, Ameal BP® is meant to promote flexible arteries and increase sodium excretion.*
So, start summer off with a list of fun outdoor activities. Enjoy the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Stay cool with frozen treats. Most of all, count your blessings for another day with your friends and family.
