Increased consumption of processed foods, rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles have led to a shift in dietary patterns, observes WHO’s. And, we couldn’t agree more! Amidst a myriad of health problems, heart health happens to suffer the most.

Eating a well-balanced diet on a regular basis has certainly become more tedious and hard to keep up with. Our modern lifestyles seldom allow us the time to arrange meals by its fat-score. Add to that, the fact that the heart, one of the most important organs and also the most susceptible in bringing sudden death, is also the most ignored one among Indians.

Without actively realising, we slip into a point of no return, where medications take the reigns of keeping us alive. It begs the question, if there is a way to prevent the imminent heart problem? 

Rising relevance of heart health

The alarming rise in cardiovascular cases among the young has brought into relevance the debate about whether supplements can play a role in reducing the risks. Critics argue about getting all the nutrients from your diet, but not many can conclude if dietary control is weighty enough to counter the cholesterol raising food. Proactive health enthusiasts don’t mind popping a supplement every day, especially for the heart. Here’s why:

1) Goodbye to nutritional gaps

A regular Indian diet is typically high in carbohydrates. And, might lack many heart-essential nutrients and antioxidants like choline, omega-3 fatty acids and astaxanthin. These ingredients are pivotal in maintaining your heart health.
