Are you getting enough of these heart-healthy nutrients in your diet?

#1: Magnesium for your heart

This essential mineral helps regulate blood pressure, keeps your heart rythm regular, and helps prevent your arteries from hardening.

Magnesium deficiency is common, especially in older people.

Seeds, nuts, spinach and oats are rich in magnesium but if you don’t eat enough of these daily, you can take a magnesium supplement.

Also, taking a vitamin B6 supplement helps the body absorb magnesium.

#2: Vitamin D for a healthy heart

This sunshine vitamin also helps regulate blood pressure and reduces inflammation in the body – which eases some of the pressure off the heart.

Get 15-20 minutes of direct sunlight on your skin every day (without sunscreen) or take a vitamin D3 supplement.

The body uses magnesium to convert vitamin D into its useful state.

Food sources of vitamin D include fish, milk, almonds and black beans.

#3: Iron through vitamin C

We need iron to build red blood cells.

Anaemia causes makes your heart work harder and can cause irregular heartbeats – as well as extreme fatigue.

Unless you’ve been diagnosed with anaemia, don’t take iron supplements, instead increase your vitamin C intake which helps the body absorb iron from food.

Brightly coloured fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamin C. It’s also a good idea to take a vitamin C supplement daily as your body can’t store this essential vitamin.

Foods rich in iron include red meat, dark leafy green veggies, nuts, oats, and legumes.

How to tell if you could be affected by Adrenal Fatigue

You feel tired or weak

•    You need coffee to get going in the mornings…
•    Your daily tasks feel like hard work

•    Get headaches
•    Reduced interest in sex…

Feeling run down and drained all the time doesn’t have to be your normal state-of-being.

Unfortunately, it is for millions of people – all over the world – who just can’t seem to keep up anymore.

And there’s a very good explanation for this…

Researchers at numerous institutions, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins and Stanford University identified that certain chemicals flick the ‘age switch’ on in people over 50, forcing them to slow down.

These chemicals gradually build up in your bloodstream over time as you age.

Until one day the switch finally flicks causing your metabolism to drag along at snail’s pace, dropping your oxygen levels and dipping your hormones until they’re practically undetectable.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!
