Strokes Linked to Triglycerides

Elevated triglycerides (fats and oils found in foods or the body) have, for the first time, been linked to stroke. 

An eight-year study recently reported in Circulation found that people with triglyceride levels in excess of 200 mg/dL had a significantly higher risk of stroke, in fact 30 percent higher. The American Heart Association's recommendation is to keep triglyceride levels below 150 mg/dL.

To keep your levels low, stay off of sugar and white flour, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and adopt a sensible nutritional supplement program such as BarleyLife Xtra.
