Did you know February is American Heart Month?
American Heart Month provides awareness of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle to support your heart. There are a lot of scary statistics out there when it comes to your heart health. The great news is that most heart disease is preventable by making healthy choices such as; not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight through nutrition and exercise and controlling blood sugar and cholesterol.
Below, we are highlighting two ingredients found in our products that can aid in heart health: Omega-3s and CoQ10.
Many reputable research studies link Omega-3 fatty acids to maintaining a healthy heart. Benefits leading to heart health may include:
- Decreasing Triglycerides
- Lowering Blood Pressure
- Reducing Blood Clotting
- Decreasing the Risk of Stroke
- Decreasing Heart Failure Risk
- Reducing Irregular Heartbeats
Coenzyme Q10, more commonly known as CoQ10, is an antioxidant that your body produces naturally but declines with age. As an antioxidant, it can help protect cells from oxidative damage, which in high amounts can interfere with cellular functions and could lead to potential health conditions.
CoQ10 is an absolute requirement in creating ATP, which is your body's form of energy created within your cells. While present in all organs, it is more concentrated in organs that require more energy, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver. By supplementing with CoQ10 you're giving your body a boost to create more ATP, fight free radicals and improve alertness.
How can I add Omega-3 & CoQ10 to my routine?
OMEGA-3 FISH OIL
At SFH we know our products are only as good as the sourcing. Our fish oil is wild-caught and sustainably sourced in the Alaskan Bering Sea. We utilize molecular distillation to be able to deliver the most concentrated level of EPA & DHA on the market. Check out our two omega-3 options, if you need help deciding which is right for you we're here to help!
Just like the name states, you can find Omega-3 in our Super Omega-3 oil. Not sure which flavor to get? Try our sample pack.
Not a fan of liquid fish oil? We also carry Fish Oil Capsules. Using enteric coating is applied to each capsule to maximize GI absorption and minimize fish oil burps.
While there are no products named after CoQ10, like our Omega-3 oils, CoQ10 can be found in 2 of our products: REVIVE, and RECOVER.
SFH REVIVE is a non-caffeine energy boost. You can find CoQ10 in SFH REVIVE in combination with Ribose and Carnitine. This formula is designed to enhance the mitochondrial synthesis of ATP, which is our body's only true energy molecule.
SFH RECOVER is our post-workout whey protein. It includes supplementation to improve recovery time, so you experience less downtime in between gym training. With 100mg of CoQ10 to help support the strongest muscle in your body, your heart.
