Healthy Blood Vessels

Ready Set Go

Healthy blood vessels are essential for the proper functioning of every organ and every tissue in your body.  Elevated blood sugar, high cholesterol levels, chronic stress, smoking, alcohol consumption, and lack of physical activity can overtime damage your arteries, the blood vessels which bring oxygen-rich blood to your organs and tissues.

When your blood vessels are healthy, you can experience:

  • Improved mental clarity

  • Better stamina & athletic performance

  • Healthy skin tone and color

  • Less muscle cramps

  • Reduced headaches

  • Less nerve discomfort

A healthy diet can significantly reduce and reverse your risk of cardiometabolic disease. Smart food choices help you control your blood sugar, reach a healthy weight, and reduce cholesterol levels as well as blood pressure. What's on your plate can be one of the most powerful ways you can improve your health and age well.

 

The Mediterranean diet is one of the most studied and healthiest ways of eating. It consists of a high intake of anti-inflammatory foods like olive oil, nuts, seeds, fish as well as fresh vegetables and fruits with only a small portion of dairy products. It also consists of reduced meat consumption as well as minimal amounts of processed foods, refined carbs, and foods high in sugar.
