Adopt Heart Healthy Habits!


Adopt a new heart healthy habit this month – drink more tea. Research shows that tea drinkers have a 20-30% lower risk of heart disease and 40-60% lower risk of stroke. Tea has also been shown to boost brain health, and slow the aging process. Enjoy it hot or chilled. If you need a sweetener, add a slash of 100% fruit juice instead of sugar. Tip: when preparing hot tea, keep dunking the bag, rather than plopping it into the water and letting it sit. The motion helps to release more heart healthy antioxidants from the tea into your cup!
