Take This Simple Step To Fight Heart Disease

Researchers looking at the health of more than 9,000 people who were having blood sugar problems have discovered a simple step you can take to significantly cut your risk of heart problems.

Even if you do nothing else, this easy lifestyle change can save your life.

The simple step is to simply take more steps…

Walk away from heart disease

The study found that if you take an extra 2,000 steps a day (about a half hour of walking) you can shrink your risk of heart disease by about 8 percent.

And taking even more steps reduces your chances of heart problems even more.

According to researcher Thomas Yates, “Our results provide novel evidence that changing physical activity levels through simply increasing the number of steps taken can substantially reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke. Importantly, these benefits are seen regardless of bodyweight status or the starting level of activity. These novel findings provide the strongest evidence yet for the importance of physical activity in high risk populations and will inform diabetes and cardiovascular disease prevention programs worldwide.”

In this research, scientists analyzed the health of 9,306 people from 40 countries who had impaired glucose tolerance. The people were given pedometers to record how much they walked daily during a one-year period.

Editor’s note: There are numerous safe and natural ways to decrease your risk of blood clots including the 25-cent vitamin, the nutrient that acts as a natural blood thinner and the powerful herb that helps clear plaque.
