Hostility & Antioxidants

New research, published in the January, 2008 American Journal of Epidemiology, suggests that certain heart-healthy antioxidants could lower the risk of heart disease associated with the hostile personality, so frequently linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

Epidemiological studies strongly suggest that hostile individuals are more likely to smoke, drink and suffer micronutrient deficiencies, which all affect antioxidant status.

Does this research suggest the possibility of a full-spectrum multiple becoming the first line of heart-health defense for hostile people?

Which supplements specifically help? I know someone who is considered a "hostile person" who is going to give themselves a heart attack so I would like to tell them would vitamins they should be taking.

Hi John,

I recommend that you tell your hostile friend to take a full-spectrum multiple like Oculair or Macula Complete. They both include all of the antioxidants associated with heart health.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the nation's single leading cause of death for both men and women. At least 58.8 million people in this country suffer from some form of heart disease.

And on the whole, cardiovascular diseases (the combination of heart disease and stroke) kill some 950,000 Americans every year.
Still, there are many misconceptions about heart disease: "The biggest misconception is that heart disease only happens to the elderly," said Elizabeth Schilling, CRNP with the Center for Preventive Cardiology Program at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

In fact, according to the American Heart Association, almost 150,00 Americans killed by cardiovascular disease each year are under the age of 65. And one out of every 20 people below the age of 40 has heart disease.

So, it is now a wise decision to keep a constant monitoring of your health. Why to take a chance if we have the option. I was in the similar misconception that heart disease are far away waiting for me to get aged. But to my surprise, I was found to be having a calcium deposit in my coronary arteries. I need to have my advance diagnostic scans due reassure whether something really deadly is waiting for me. Though it was some dreadful going on in my life, but I never felt any kind of discomfort in advanced diagnostic facility. They were having some of the latest diagnostic equipments and non invasive techniques which made me feel safe.
