The men in my life have typically suffered from more heart related complications and problems which first brought up my own fears and concerns about hearth health. While many men suffer from heart disease The American Heart Association now reports that heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases are the No. 1 cause of death in American women. With heart disease striking men and women in equal numbers.
This isn’t a topic brought up to scare anyone. But with February being a month dedicated to Heart Health it’s a great time to help educate on the importance of heart health and simple ways we can all improve upon our own heart health.
Quaker has been a staple in our home for years and I support the brand not just because we enjoy the product, but the soluble fiber in Quaker Oats can help lower cholesterol, which has obvious benefits for the heart. They are a brand committed to heart health and education. For Heart Health Month, Quaker is teaming up with Chef Fabio Viviani to energize and inspire women to take action for their hearts, in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement by inviting women to start their day with a hot heart-healthy breakfast video. Check it out!
Although quite humorous, Chef Fabio Viviani lays it all on the line in letting women know nothing is more important than a healthy heart. Even if we start off simple by replacing that breakfast on-the-go for a hot bowl of Quaker Oats we will be putting our best foodt forward, starting on our way to a healthy heart. As women we play a mighty role in the lives of those we love and they deserve to us at our very best as much as we deserve to feel our very best, inside and out.
