Today, I’m going to share with you one of the most powerful functional mushrooms that can help reduce your risk of heart disease, and heart attack, and stroke. This is not as well advertised, but definitely, we have a lot of research regarding this functional mushroom, and it is chaga and you’re going to find chaga in our 7M+. I love it. I love it. I love it. Chaga is a powerful Siberian mushroom that has powerful blood pressure-lowering and lipid-reducing influences on your cardiovascular health.
And this is really quite interesting. In the span of our talk already, there have been four or five heart attacks. Every 40 seconds, an individual suffers from a heart attack. One in five individuals are at risk of a heart attack.
That is a crazy, crazy statistic, but I’m going to share with you how you can use chaga to reduce unhealthy LDL levels that tend to be the leading factor, the underlying current, that causes clogging of your arteries and even is an underlying factor with cardiovascular impairment like arterial sclerosis. Also, chaga can, overall, reduce your inflammatory levels, which is a huge factor in terms of supporting your heart health.
Research Shows Chaga Reduces Inflammation & LDL Levels
What we know … Chaga has been studied , so there’s been several different scientific research pieces that have identified that when patients take chaga, their LDL levels are reduced.
Now there’s a direct correlation to this. LDL tends to be billed as like, “the bad cholesterol” and not all cholesterol is bad. HDL kind of they’ll label it like, “the helping HDL,” “the helper cholesterol.” You want more HDL than you want LDL, and a lot of times people are flip-flopped or they’re really low on HDL and moderate on LDL, but you want the ratio to be more prominent in HDL.
Free Radicals Damage the Vascular System
The reason being here is that when we have free radical damage, we have single cells that are roaming through our vascular system, they burn the lining of our cardiovascular channel, the walls of our vessels, our blood vessels, the walls of our arteries, and even impair our heart health. And that damage requires a band-aid.
The Liver Produces a Band-Aid Mechanism to Combat Free Radical Damage
So, I’m just breaking down how I describe, for my patients, what LDL and HDL, the function is. When we have a little burn in our vascular channel from a single free radical – which is not good. We don’t want a lot of free radicals. We want to reduce those. Free radicals are the sign of high inflammatory levels, so an elevation in inflammation. The free radicals damage the lining of the vascular channel, they burn it.
Well, the body has a band-aid mechanism and that mechanism is produced in the liver, and it is called LDL. So, LDL is going to go and, basically, it’s a fat that functions as like a “fat band-aid,” and it allows that wall behind that burn spot to heal. And then when it’s done, HDL, the helper HDL, comes and removes it. So, you want more things removing, you want more HDL removing the LDL, so that’s why we want that quantity of HDL to be higher.
There are two factors here that are influential. Number one, if you are constipated your LDL won’t necessarily be an accurate value when you’re doing labs because there’s this recycling of LDL in the bowels that gets absorbed up through the hepatic vein. The other thing that is influential is inflammation is the source of free radicals, so if we can lower your inflammation, we lower free radical damage. We reduce the need for a “band-aid LDL” to be present.
So, at the end of the day if you can have a supplement, or a functional mushroom in the case of chaga, do two things: reduce your inflammation levels, which is the source of the burn that requires the LDL, and you can have it reduce the LDL, so it helps metabolize it lower, it’s a lipid-lowering type of supplementation, it’s a win-win and that’s what chaga does.
Chaga Lowers Blood Pressure & Balances Cortisol
Chaga also can lower blood pressure levels. It’s very, very powerful as an adaptogenic herb, which is good for lowering stress. And when I say stress, this is internal, physiological, biochemical, neuroendocrine stress, hormonal stress. And the stress hormone is called cortisol. Cortisol is an inflammatory hormone. It serves a function when we’re fighting and flighting, and in a chronic state, it causes a lot of free radical damage. So, chaga addresses stress, it’s adaptogenic, it helps your body adapt to everyday stressors; physiological, and mental, and emotional, and helps to balance out cortisol levels and it has a direct impact on lowering those lipid levels.
So, I love to recommend our 7M+ that has chaga in it. It’s very chaga-forward, which means it’s a prominent part of the cascade of ingredients, and it’s powerful. And I find that individuals in my practice that are taking chaga, and deploying practices where they’re lowering their stress levels by meditating or taking yoga and exercising, that they really can have a significant impact in lowering that overall LDL level.
Try Chaga Instead of a Statin
And it’s better to do that than to take a statin, because a statin … One, long term, it has not been necessarily researched as a lifelong supplement or a medical resource. It’s supposed to be temporary, shorter-term in its function. But at the end of the day, a statin masks the problem, and what we need to do is we need to go deeper and look at that inflammation, the stress, and the reason why you are elevating, or having elevations in lipid levels.
So, I hope you will try chaga or add that to your regimen if you are looking at lowering your cholesterol, lowering your blood pressure levels, and helping support lowered inflammatory levels across the board within your body. It’s so wonderful and the research is definitely in support of using chaga for heart health.
7 Mushrooms from Organixx contains 7 of nature’s most powerful mushrooms for anti-aging, longevity, and immune support. Using centuries-old knowledge of the power of nutritional mushrooms and our breakthrough new formulation process we’ve unleashed the power of mushrooms in a way never before done.
I’m so excited to share with you today four of our favorite, best resources here at Organixx for improving your heart health.
Number one is collagen. Our Clean Sourced Collagens are amazing for helping muscle and soft tissue repair. Our assortment, five different types of collagen, it’s very powerful. These collagen types are helpful at supporting the turnover of the cellular process of your heart health, as well as muscle health, and your vasculature. So, overall, collagen is a good repair agent for supporting the functionality of your heart and cardiovascular health.
2. Turmeric 3D
The second supplement that I love is our Turmeric 3D, or T3D. It’s very turmeric-forward, and turmeric is a powerful herb for supporting our heart health. One of the overwhelming benefits of turmeric is that it’s an anti-inflammatory. So, when we’re talking about heart health, and heart disease risks, and risk factors behind stroke and heart attack, and that kind of vascular inflammatory disorders, turmeric is very helpful at lowering overall systemic inflammation, and it also serves to function as a natural diuretic.
Now, quick warning on this, if you are taking any kind of blood-thinning medication like a warfarin, you want to be very cautious of taking also turmeric. So, turmeric is kind of the nature’s natural alternative to a warfarin or a blood thinner, and that’s the other powerful benefit that turmeric provides, is it does thin your blood and helps to move your blood.
So, folks that have been diagnosed with thicker blood or notate a little bit higher elevations of LDL being transported through the blood, that would be a very powerful resource.
3. Magnesium 7
Now, third is honestly one of my favorites, and it’s our combination, or multi-form magnesium, or Magnesium 7. So, magnesium, overall, is going to be one of the most powerful minerals for your heart health. And simply put, magnesium is like a cardiovascular bouncer. It helps to keep out calcium from all aspects of your vasculature.
So, it will help minimize the buildup of hard, kind of gunky bony plaque, which is simply from calcium that is not being articulated and remineralized in other areas, like our bone or our teeth. So, when we’re talking about magnesium in the function of supporting our heart health, calcium blocking is the core powerful function magnesium provides for your heart health.
Now, magnesium, again, this is all different forms, we’re giving you seven different forms of magnesium. Some forms of magnesium are going to be more functional and helpful at moving your bowels, and that is very powerful at helping lower cholesterol levels, keeping things moving. There’s also a lymphatic function where we get the lymphatic fluid moving, which helps minimize the arterial pressure. This is really complex, but basically, there’s this connectivity between our blood vessels and our lymphatic system. It’s how the blood gets rid of toxicity, and it also is the way that it moves the lymphatic system. And there’s this pressure, there’s this kind of interweaving of vessels where there’s a transport mechanism and there is a pressure. It’s pressurized. Well, magnesium helps to get things moving out and through your blood, your lymphatic system.
So, when we’re talking about, maybe you’ve got some congestive heart failure, or edema, or swelling of the ankles, or even maybe are dealing with gout, all of those things can influence the fluid levels and constrain your heart health. Magnesium is great for helping excess fluid that is in the interstitial space, the kind of open space in our vasculature and in around our body. It helps articulate it and move it out. That is very helpful for reducing the overwhelm the heart has in pushing the volume of blood and other fluids in our body.
4. 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+]
Now, our fourth, and just powerhouse, is a functional mushroom that you’re going to find in our 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+] product. And the functional mushroom here is called chaga. Chaga is one of my favorite adaptogenic functional mushrooms. Adaptogenic, meaning it helps your body adapt to everyday stressors. So, if you are studying and doing a lot of reading and are doing mental work, it helps you adapt to that mental work. If you, later on in the day, are doing a lot of physical activity, it helps your body process and recover and repair after that physical activity.
Chaga also has some really powerful heart-healthy benefits, and I highlight this in another video here this month. I’d have you reference that, but specifically, chaga is great for lowering your elevations of LDL, and it’s an anti-inflammatory.
So, overall, these four supplements, our collagen, our Clean Sourced Collagens, T3D, our MAG7, and our 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+] functional mushroom blend that’s chaga-forward. They’re great. So powerful for helping support your heart health.
And if you are looking at being proactive and reducing your heart health risk and helping reduce the inflammation levels in your body systemically, that is a powerful thing to do to reduce your risk of heart disease, strokes, and heart attack. So, I hope you check out these four items in our catalog here at Organixx. They are great for heart health.

Our next Ask the Doctor question comes from one of our viewers. They say, “Hello, Dr. Melissa. I have a burning question. Doing extensive research, I heard one integrative doctor, Amy Myers, strongly suggest to stay away from fermented food/supplements if you have a fungal infection. Is that right? I’m subscribed to a whole bunch of Organixx fermented supplements, and I love them. Should I continue using them while fighting with the ringworm I got from a feral kitten we adopted recently? Thanks.”
So, this is a fantastic question, and I’m excited to clear up the inconsistencies of information, as well as clear up what we know clinically through scientific research and studies on mushrooms.
So, the first thing I want to clarify is we have two topics. We have fermented supplements, fermented food – the fermentation process is separate from mushrooms specifically. And so, one of the things I want to kind of clear up is a common question that I hear from patients, who are adamant, like, “I can’t take X, Y, and Z functional mushroom,” or, “I can’t take this fermented food, because so-and-so said,” or, “I read that fermented foods and/or mushrooms can cause candida overgrowth.”
So, to clear that up, that is absolutely false information. We do know there are some cross-reactions between mushrooms and fungal infections in the body. But overall, there’s no sort of clinical research that shows that a fermented food and/or a mushroom that is either in raw form that you grab at your grocery store and put on your salads or eating in assorted foods or consuming in a supplement form, liquid or powdered form, will contribute to a candida overgrowth.
Fermented Foods Support Immunity & Provide Greater Bioavailability
So, what I want to clarify is that fermented foods are going to help support your immune process. And one of the things that I really love about Organixx and our supplementation fermentation process is that we will ferment a lot of our supplementation in a very powerful adaptogenic dense liquid that is part of that fermentation process. So, it actually gives greater strength and potency to the bioavailability of the supplement form, but also enhances the stress balancing. It enhances immune response and actually helps your body beyond just that key target area that we’re focusing on.
Address Gut Health & Its Impact on Immunity
So, when it comes to fermented foods, I have to say one of the things that we’re looking at with any type of fungal infection or immune disabling, either we are seeing a weakness in the immune system, maybe a dysregulation of the immune system, or a heightened immune response, (i.e. autoimmunity), we need to zero in on the gut. And so when we talk about the gut, the gut is all about your microbiome – the degree of healthy bacteria in your gut that can help calibrate your immune response, your mental health, can help balance out your hormones. There’s an assortment of things that our microbes, the little bacteria, will do in our body. And they will signal to make certain hormones, to have certain chemical reactions occur. And they support a healthy immune state.
So, when we’re talking about adding in a fermented supplement, like many of the Organixx supplements you’re taking, what I want to recommend is to continue to take them, because that fermentation process, especially in the adaptogenic-rich liquid, you are going to get a huge immune boost. And so the immune factor with the fermentation process and the bioavailability actually is going to really support your immune system, so that you can eradicate the ringworm, or you can eradicate and recalibrate the body’s candida reaction.
Internally & Topically Treating a Fungal Infection
Now, when it comes to a fungal infection, I always recommend internally supporting your system, bolstering and supporting a very dense, rich microbiota, as well as topically supporting your skin microbiome. So one of the things that we’re dealing with, when we have an infection, let’s say ringworm or even candida that might be presenting on the skin, is we want to look at addressing both the internal microbiome in your gut and also your skin microbiome.
So, your skin microbiome can be supported by topical probiotics. I mean, honestly, it’s not anything crazy to apply just clean, plain, probiotic-dense yogurt. You can also apply things like aloe vera. Apple cider vinegar is really good. That’s a fermented process that will recalibrate your skin microbiome, as well as also adding immune-boosting colloidal silver. There are gels of colloidal silver that you can apply on the skin.
And so, there are multiple ways to use both internal resources and topical resources to combat yeast infections of the scalp or the skin or folds of the body. I also recommend using the Magi-Complexx oil that has three really powerful antioxidants. There’s a lot of good skin healing nutrition and antiviral, antimicrobial properties, as well as antifungal properties, in those three oils that could be really helpful.
So definitely, act accordingly, in terms of taking the right actions with ringworm. You don’t want it to get out of hand. And just know that there are a lot of different ways that we can combat it internally and externally, so we bolster up your immune system so that it can expel the ringworm infection.
Keep Taking Your Fermented Supplements & Mushrooms
So, I hope that’s helpful. And just know that fermented foods and supplements with fermentation are very powerful, as are mushrooms. So, mushrooms are definitely not something that we want to shy away from. The mushroom kingdom is so vast that there are so many wonderful benefits from consuming the fruiting bodies of mushrooms that also help to support the recalibration and the balancing of our immune system, so that we’re more apt to fight the unhealthy fungal infections or unhealthy bacterial imbalances that can arise in our body for an assortment of reasons.
So, I hope that’s helpful. And I want to continue to encourage you to keep taking the fermented supplements here at Organixx. There are so many wonderful benefits. And I’m excited to answer any other questions you might have. So, thanks for asking the doctor today.
The powerhouse trio of herbs in Magi-Complexx Essential Oil provides the strongest, most synergistic healing effect, helping sufferers of arthritis pain, constant muscle aches and pains, neuropathy, systemic inflammation, slowed wound healing, circulatory challenges, as well as skin irritations like eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
One of the submissions in the Ask The Doctor series comes from one of our viewers. They say, “Hello. I would like to try your 7M, but I have Candida and have been told to avoid mushrooms. How do you feel about that?”
Well, that is a wonderful question and it’s actually a common misconception that if you are dealing with Candida, or if you consume functional medicinal mushrooms, that that will create a greater overgrowth of Candida. And I’m here to set the record straight that that is totally false.
The Opposite Effect, Actually
So mushrooms, while they’re in the fungi kind of kingdom, mushrooms are not mold, and mushrooms are not yeast. And those are two things that can contribute to the overgrowth of Candida or the development of Candida within your body.
So with that being said, mushrooms, functional mushrooms, categorically these are going to be mushrooms like shiitake, maitake, turkey tail, we’re going to see chaga in this category, as well as an assortment of other commonly consumed mushrooms that have polyspores as a part of their fruiting body. And basically, what that means is that is how we as humans would consume these fungi mushroom combinations in our daily diet or in supplemental form.
So while they’re polysporic, that does not lead to enhancing Candida overgrowth or causes Candida overgrowth. What that does, actually, is protects our body, protects our immune system, and helps the body fight Candida or yeast overgrowth or an over overwhelm of this unhealthy bacterial balance.
Functional Mushrooms Ward off Candida Overgrowth
So, I hope I’ve kind of allayed your concerns and addressed this common misconception that mushrooms, functional mushrooms specifically, have a powerful benefit for anybody who’s dealing with Candida. And when you consume the blend that we have here available in the 7M+, this has all of the right functional mushrooms to support your immune state, to help your body ward off a Candida overgrowth, and to help minimize the overwhelm of Candida systemically within your body.
So, I hope that’s helpful. I hope you’ll click on the link down below and order 7M+ today because it’s so wonderful for your overall immune state. It’s really wonderful for supporting stress management, supporting optimal brain function and rejuvenation of your brain cells, as well as provides your body with an assortment of micronutrients and minerals and even peptides that can be highly beneficial with your body optimized or working in an optimized state. So, I hope that is helpful.
Mold, mold is something you definitely want to avoid, but that is not what you’re going to find when you’re consuming wonderful functional mushrooms. So, I hope that’s helpful.
7 Mushrooms from Organixx contains 7 of nature’s most powerful mushrooms for anti-aging, longevity, and immune support. Using centuries-old knowledge of the power of nutritional mushrooms and our breakthrough new formulation process we’ve unleashed the power of mushrooms in a way never before done.
I’m so excited to share with you an amazing memory and brain supportive kit that we have available for you, that combines two of our most powerful and potent brain health and neuro-supportive supplementation, all in one kit – and it combines Brain Health 8 [formerly Ageless Brain] with 7 Mushrooms.
These individually are very powerful for supporting your brain health. Collectively, they are a dynamic duo to help enhance your mental acuity, help you recall and have better memory, especially if you find you can’t remember where you put your keys or even sometimes how you got home driving because of the brain distraction and brain fog. What I love about blending the Brain Health 8, plus 7 Mushrooms, is we are going to be targeting several different things collectively.
Increase Antioxidant Levels by Crossing the Blood-Brain Barrier
One, we’re going to be focusing on increasing antioxidant levels to your brain. The supplementation, the actual ingredients in here, are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which is very powerful and unique in that this is how we appropriately support our brain’s health with supplementation. Not all supplements have that capacity. So in combination, we’re going to be delivering good nutritional support, both by Brain Health 8 and 7 Mushrooms.
Add Neuro Anti-Inflammatories
The other thing that we’re going to be doing is we’re going to be adding a lot of good, healthy neuro anti-inflammatories. So we have a focus on antioxidants, but also conversely, are going to be lowering the inflammatory levels within the brain.
And one of the things that we see is a lot of brain health challenges, the root of imbalance is both gut-related and inflammation-related. So, these have the capacity to help support your gut, but also specifically are going to support your brain health.
And I love that because we are going to enhance blood flow to the brain. We’re going to support your neurons and the actual communication pathways in our brain. The synapses and the assorted cells that need to be charged up and enhanced, they will greatly be supported by this supplementation. There is maximum bioavailability with our supplementation, and it helps us to deliver your brain the right nutrition to support brain cell rejuvenation.
Support Brain Health with Supplementation
So, I’m going to share with you a few things that I love, specifically about Brain Health 8. So, Brain Health 8 has an assortment of supplementation that are known and researched for supporting brain health and enhancing neuron functionality.
Camu camu is a very powerful supplement that you’re going to find here in Brain Health 8, as well as cat’s claw and Pau D’Arco. I love these for enhancing memory. Really, they’re great at supporting when we have memory loss or failures of recall. Now that can classify as brain fog, and it can also help support folks that have had maybe loss of blood flow or oxygen flow to the brain – this could be from a cardiac event, or it could be a stress or trauma, a traumatic brain injury. Small falls, minor injuries can lead to brain trauma.
And what we see as enhanced blood flow, we can get that cellular turnover. And that’s one of the powerful things here at Organixx is Brain Health 8 has the capacity all on its own to support your brain health and help enhance acuity.
Pair with Functional Mushrooms to Improve Sleep
Now, when we couple it up with 7 Mushrooms, this is our powerful mushroom blend, our functional mushrooms all combined in one that are going to add in co-factors like B6 and manganese and other micronutrients that our brain needs for power. These collectively will help decrease stress and anxiety. They help to balance our neurotransmitter health and will encourage restful sleep, which in turn, nourishes the brain and helps the glymphatics flow appropriately. And if you’re curious about what the glymphatics are, actually I have a YouTube video that you can delve way more deeply into this process of rejuvenation and cellular detoxification that occurs at night only when we’re sleeping. So, enhancing restful sleep helps your brain detoxify.
Literally, we have this process and we know that supplementation like Brain Health 8 and 7 Mushrooms are going to be helpful in enhancing not just sleep function and the glymphatic function, but also will power-up and energize your brain, your body, and supports your nerve function. And I really love that because certain mushrooms like cordyceps and reishi are very brain-focused, and we see a lot of clinical data that supports that enhancement of our brain function.
Counter Cognitive Decline as You Age
And as a Naturopathic Physician in my clinical practice, it’s not uncommon for me to see patients in their 40s and 50s with declining memory and declining brain function. And that might register simply as brain fog or a loss of sense of taste and smell. It may even be presenting as neuropathy or imbalances in our muscular functionality, but all of it’s centered in our brain. And even hormonal imbalance is brain-oriented.
So, if you have any family history, like myself, where we have family members who’ve had dementia or Alzheimer’s, and you’re really, really cognizant and wanting to support your brain health, this Memory and Focus Kit with 7 Mushrooms and Brain Health 8 will greatly help you prevent any type of brain-related inflammation, helps enhance brain cell turnover, and ultimately is going to help you power-up and bolster-up your brain.
So, I’m really excited to share this kit with you. This is such a great way to have these two things together. You can sign up and subscribe and automatically have these shipped to you every month. So, you don’t even have to remember or recall as these supplements are starting to take effect. You can auto-ship it, and you’ll be getting your brain supportive, your Focus & Memory Kit, in the mail every month.
So, I hope you click on the link down below. And I’m excited to hear all about how well your brain function and neurons are firing up and powering your body and your life.
Brain Health 8 and 7 Mushrooms from Organixx: When you combine these two powerful supplements together, you get a synergistic effect that gives your brain the nutrients needed to support optimum memory, focus, and clarity.
If you are looking to prevent heart disease, I’m going to share with you five easy ways to maximize your cardiovascular health.
Cut The Sugar
So number one, this is the least discussed topic with many cardiologists and their patients, but it is at the core root of heart disease. And that is – cutting out sugar. Sugar is actually the number one leading cause of heart disease because sugar causes metabolic syndrome. It increases our insulin levels, it can increase our blood sugar, and it has a direct relation to the increases patients see with their blood pressure levels. When individuals curb the sugar intake in their diets, research shows it decreases the risk for heart disease.
Eat More Fats and Less Carbs
Number two is reach for more fats and less carbs. And this is piggybacking on keto diet focus, where individuals are utilizing more fats for energy than they are carbs. So, a lot of people don’t realize that carbohydrates – even more complex carbohydrates – ultimately end up turning into sugar in the body. And that leads to, again, an increase in insulin, increase in your blood sugar levels. And ultimately, carbs and sugar-dense diets create a situation where individuals present with insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.
The reason why we recommend eating more fat is, fat is an energy. So, consuming healthy fats like coconut oil, and ghee, and even flaxseed oil are going to be healthier than consuming carbs. And carbs actually are the… I’m going to take that back. Carbs can lead to subcutaneous fat increases as well, as visceral fat increases – that’s fat around your organ matter. So, it’s really critical that you look at making some subtle switches and adding healthier fat to your diet. The other thing that adding fat does to support your body is it will help balance out hormone levels. And we often see healthy fats will actually increase your HDL levels.
Increase Antioxidant Levels
Number three is increasing your antioxidant levels. Antioxidants are really important for lowering free radical damage and offsetting oxidative stress. We find that individuals who have heart disease or an assortment of cardiovascular impairments, when we test them, they have low antioxidant levels and high inflammatory markers. So antioxidants and inflammation go hand in hand – we have low antioxidants, we’ll have high inflammatory markers. So, the best way to address inflammation is to level up your antioxidants.
I’m going to share with you some amazing resources that we have here at Organixx. My favorite antioxidant blend is our Turmeric 3D. This is so wonderful because turmeric is a very powerful antioxidant, and this is in a fermented form that makes it way more bioavailable, so you’re getting the max dose of antioxidants in this supplement.
The other thing that we find is that functional mushrooms can also deliver antioxidants. One of my favorite mushrooms is chaga. And the 7 Mushrooms, this is listed as an antioxidant support because of chaga and some of the other mushrooms in the supplement. Chaga is the most naturally occurring antioxidant on what we call the org scale. It is the number-one natural organism on the antioxidant scale.
And so, adding Turmeric 3D and 7 Mushrooms to your diet is a really good way to power up your antioxidant. And another recommendation I have is to add CoQ10. That’s a powerful antioxidant. And if you follow along here this month, because it’s heart disease month, I’ll be talking a little bit more in-depth about CoQ10. So look for that email.
Consume More Magnesium
Now, my fourth recommendation is to consume more magnesium. And I like to recommend a complete magnesium blend, a comprehensive assortment of magnesium forms. And here at Organixx, we have Magnesium 7. This is so fantastic because magnesium is an amazing mineral that directly impacts our heart health.
And in fact, a lot of studies showcase that individuals with heart disease, or folks that have heart arrhythmias, heart attacks, or vascular impairment; they have lower magnesium levels. And my recommendation, if you are dealing with any diagnosed heart disease, is to take Magnesium 7 two times daily. And that would give you a good, broad, continuous level of magnesium supplementation. And make sure you ask your doctors to test your magnesium because unfortunately, that is not considered or evaluated in our normal chem panels, so it’s important to evaluate those levels. And I’ll be talking more about magnesium as well in future content here this month.
Manage Stress Levels
And last and final, number five is to manage your stress levels. Stress can cause heart disease. Stress is the root of a lot of inflammatory disorders and it can stress our cardiovascular system. So, there are some recommendations here:
Exercising obviously is a good one for reducing stress, but exercising 30 minutes or less is really ideal. The other thing I recommend is to meditate or reach for some sort of breathing, lowering-of-your-stress-level activity. It can be transcendental meditation, it can be Kundalini yoga, but incorporating breathing and stress management are very powerful at reducing and preventing heart disease. And then the last and final in stress management is to reach for adaptogens, which you’re going to find in the 7 Mushrooms here. This mushroom blend is rich in adaptogens that help your body adapt to and manage stress every day.
So, those are my five tips for preventing heart disease daily. I’m so excited for you to try these out in your lives.
