Love is a universal human emotion that fulfills every aspects of our lives. However, we often neglect to show ourselves the same love we devote to others. Instead, we should prioritize our needs and listen to our body trying to warn us when things are out of balance, especially with our cardiovascular system. Be proactive!Hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, inactivity, and being overweight are all risk factors of cardiovascular disease. Almost half of all people with high blood pressure don't know that they have it, according to a 2013 Canadian study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It’s time to have a little TLC! What makes ME feel happy? Without a strong healthy heart, we wouldn’t be able to care for our loved ones, enjoy our passions, and accomplish great things in life. The cardiovascular system, which is composed of the hearth, blood vessels, and blood, helps deliver nutrients and oxygen to the cells, remove wastes and process CO2, protect and defend the body against pathogens, and maintain body temperature. Keeping our blood pressure healthy, reducing the workload on our heart, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle are simple things we can do every day to strengthen our heart and support our cardiovascular system. Flora has an amazingly delicious heart tonic that will help take care of your sensitive heart. Cardio•Essence® (US/CA) nourishes your heart and blood vessels, and increases oxygen delivery to your heart and body. This herbal elixir contains all 3 medicinally used parts of the hawthorn tree: blossoms, leaves, and berries. Hawthorn’s cardioprotective benefit is mainly attributed to its high flavonoids content, particularly the oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), which provides strong antioxidant effect in reducing oxidative stress. Passion flower is included for its calming/relaxing effect and antispasmodic (relieve muscle spasms) qualities. Hibiscus nourishes and strengthens blood vessels while normalizing blood pressure and also contains protective antioxidants. Flora Cardio·Essence® helps improve cardiovascular health naturally! We are there for you every step of the way—follow your heart and stay healthy! Happy Valentine’s Day XOXOXO About the author: Kelly Hoang Product Information Specialist. Been with Flora for 8 years.
