The cardiovascular system carries nutrients, hormones and oxygen in the blood and removes waste products through an amazing network of ever smaller blood vessels until it reaches every cell in the body. The pump that drives this process is the heart, a muscle that works tirelessly and beats some 100 000 times a day.

The health of this incredibly important system is largely dependent on the food we choose to put in our mouths.

One of the great disservices to the public in the last century is the promotion of so-called ‘heart healthy’ processed vegetable oils which have turned out to be anything but healthy, especially for the heart. The most vilified fats have been the saturated fats, like Coconut Oil, which ironically may just be the very best thing you can do for your heart.

 

ANAEMIA

When there are lower than normal red blood cells, the condition is known as anaemia. Iron is often given to correct the problem but too much iron can cause severe problems. Natural oils help restore the balance.

ATHEROSCLEROSIS

Atherosclerosis is the term for hardening of the arteries where fatty deposits, cholesterol and calcium form plaques that accumulate in the lining.

CIRCULATION

These oils boost circulation, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to the cells, making them healthier and more capable of fighting disease.

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE

Many oils are cardioprotective because they prevent the build-up of ‘bad’ cholesterol and because their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities contribute to good heart health.

HIGH CHOLESTEROL

These oils all have positive effects on the type of cholesterol in the blood, lowering the ‘bad’ and supporting the ‘good’ type.

HYPERTENSION

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is extremely dangerous if left unchecked and medication does nothing to address the root cause. Dietary changes are a far better solution:

STROKE

Strokes occur when there is an interruption in the blood supply to the brain, causing a lack of oxygen and then brain cell death.
