Podcast: #385 Women & Heart Health

Finally, an episode about heart health screening and risk factors just for women! In this show I cover simple blood tests that can help you understand your risk factors for heart disease, heart attacks and atherosclerosis that go beyond the standard total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL. I also cover how functional medicine testing can be helpful too as they uncover issues with other factors beyond cholesterol such as stress, inflammation and estrogen. Women experience heart attacks differently then men and our stress component is unique – no surprise there, right? Please share this episode with a woman that needs it!

In honor of Valentine’s Day a big I love you to all my listeners! I so appreciate you all.

Most of us need more of it’s prebiotics and antioxidants in our diet and Manuka honey from Manukora is my new fav way to sup up my protein shakes and afternoon cup of tea as it’s got three times more of these compounds than regular honey! And ‘tis the season for getting sick and the thick, carmel-like Manukora 850+honey also has antimicrobial compounds to help us stay healthy.

We all know the downsides of alcohol, but it is still something many decide to enjoy on occasion. Most of us also notice that especially as we get into our 40s and beyond that one glass of wine feels like way more than a glass the next day. If you choose to indulge, one dose of ZBiotics before drinking any alcohol can make you feel way less yucky the next day! Cool…but how? The yuck the day after having alcohol is due to a buildup of acetaldehyde (a byproduct of alcohol metabolism). ZBiotics is a probiotic formula that helps you break down acetaldehyde in the gut so you can have a great workout and a great day even after a drink the night before.
