A Quick Tip to Prevent a Heart Attack

The major cause of death for diabetics isn’t sugar related. Actually, it’s usually due to heart disease.

Weakened blood vessels caused by diabetes make the heart more susceptible to cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.

But researchers just reported that there is one sure-fire way to prevent your heart from
ever getting there.


I know, I know, it’s annoying to hear that again. But if you hear it so many times and all with such positive results, don’t you think they might be onto something?

In this particular report, the researchers compared exercise levels among 1,664 heart attack victims. Of those victims, 425 died immediately due to the heart attack.

What they discovered was a pretty overwhelming trend.

People who practiced exercise were significantly less likely to die from a heart attack. The correlation was pretty strong, showing that the more physical activity the patient had leading up to the heart attack, the less likely they were to die.

Specifically, patients with light or moderate exercise enjoyed a 32% decreased risk while those with high levels of activity were 47% less likely to die from a heart attack.

Of course, to be fair, the researchers couldn’t get a full self-report from the patients that had passed immediately after having a heart attack.

Exercise strengthens the heart and improves overall blood flow, working as a daily natural “Drain-O” in your vessels. The lining of the vessels in the heart is strengthened so that if a blockage occurs, they are more able to continue functioning.

This is particularly helpful for people that are prone to heart disease and heart attacks (*ahem* diabetics) because it provides a safe and natural way to reduce your overall risk of dying due to heart failure.

Exercise is also a great natural tool to stabilize blood sugar, reduce weight, regulate hormones and increase metabolism … but who is counting, anyway?

Also, it’s worth mentioning that you don’t need to become a marathon runner to achieve the same benefits as a one. Just a 30-minute walk around the block each evening after dinner will do the trick.

So if you aren’t exercising already then now is the time to start! Get your blood pumping and your blood vessels nice and strong, you’re going to need it!
