A Healthy Heart! That is What We're After!

Almost two years ago Chad went in for his yearly physical. Imagine our surprise when almost a week later his doctor's office called to schedule an appointment to discuss the results of his lab work. We were floored and didn't know what to expect.

Chad came home the next day with news that absolutely terrified me. He was told to totally change his lifestyle, diet, and step up the exercise. His good cholesterol was practically nonexistent and his bad cholesterol was off the charts. That in combination with a family history of heart disease, he was a heart attack waiting to happen. Things had to change.

SO. We changed our diet. He was already riding his bike, but added running and swimming. We as a family began to make healthier choices. Chad was/is determined to do this without a prescription. His doctor gave us some ideas and Chad took them and ran with it.

Over the last two years he has worked HARD. We were thrilled to discover that so much of what his doctor has suggested he try is available in AdvoCare products. Fish oil was one of the first thing his doctor had him start taking. AdvoCare offers a GREAT product called OmegaPlex.

He has been very pleased with the OmegaPlex. In fact, at his last physical we saw some improvement in all his numbers.

Here are a few tidbits of information on OmegaPlex:

Supplies 1,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per serving
Contains both EPA and DHA fatty acids
Plays an important role in the transportation of nutrients*
Helps support normal blood flow and healthy blood pressure*
Promotes cardiovascular health in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise*
Helps promote healthy metabolism*
Helps maintain a healthy immune system*
Promotes maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails*

This journey to a healthy heart is full of choices. The choice to choose grilled fish instead of fried chicken. The choice to get up early for a run instead of sleeping that extra hour. Choices.

We are seeing the results of healthy choices. AdvoCare products like OmegaPlex are working hand in hand with those choices to make a difference in the heart health of my husband.

I pray you never receive news like we received two years ago. But if you do, can I encourage you to take a look at the AdvoCare products? If you have any questions, Chad and I would be honored to help you!

  1. Medical diagnosis on cardiovascular system such as congestive heart failure, heart attack, hypertension and alike can be determined through vital signs monitoring, food intake, daily activities and leisure. So it is very important to have an active lifestyle and appropriate food choices to prevent such diseases.
