A new study has proved that inflammation has a huge impact on the heart and that reducing levels of excessive inflammation will be really important. Inflammation of the lining around the heart can either cause no sensations whatsoever of course or could cause chest pains and an accumulation of fluids around the heart. Equally, arteries can become inflamed.
A good food program is, of course, vital especially removing sugar. But herbs can and will/also really help enormously and the common ones I’ve often talked about will be relevant. Such as olive leaves, ginkgo leaves, hawthorn leaves, flowers and berries and my favourite heart food, beetroot.
The nitrates in beetroot help improve blood flow as it expands blood vessels. Other anti-inflammatory compounds in beetroot help further, for instance, betaine, also termed trimethylglycine (TMG). Betaine plays a role in the breakdown of homocysteine in our body, liver detoxing and bile production and generally protects cell proteins and enzymes from environmental stress and inflammation. It has also been found to increase levels of a crucial amino acid called glutathione, one of our body’s most important anti-oxidants. Its naturally occurring nitrates help to make another vital substance in the body called nitric oxide, again very protective overall for inflammatory levels.
Hawthorn, Ginkgo and Olive
These are all rich in anti-inflammatory organic compounds, helping the heart to pump properly and provide enough blood to other organs and systems in the body.
Do not use Hawthorn herb if on heart medication
