Heart failure’s not a death sentence — but it’s about as close as you can come to having one foot in the grave.
Half of the folks who’ve experienced it end up buried within five years.
You don’t have to be one of them, my friend, because the latest science reveals a simple and safe way to fight this disease and win.
Ready for the best part? This little trick is available to everyone, everywhere for just pennies a day.
A major new clinical trial put vitamin D3 up head to head against a placebo in heart failure patients, and the supplements did something that no drug in the world can do.
They actually REVERSED some of the damage of heart failure!
Heart failure, as I’m sure you know, is when your heart can’t pump blood as well as it’s supposed to. One way to measure how well it’s pumping is with a test called ejection fraction.
It’s not a math test. It’s when they use an echocardiogram to see how much blood is pumped out by your ticker with every lub-dub.
If you’re healthy and never had a heart problem, your ejection fraction will indicate that about 55 to 70 percent of the blood gets pumped out with every rock-steady beat.
Heart failure is generally considered below 40 percent — and the lower it sinks, the bigger your risk.
In the new study, the folks with heart failure were all the way down at 26 percent at the beginning.
One year later, the placebo didn’t move the needle at all… but not so with D3.
The folks on supplements saw a stunning 30 percent improvement, with their ejection fraction jumping up to 34 percent.
That’s not perfect, obviously. You’ve got heart FAILURE after all, so odds are it’ll never get high enough to hit that healthy percentage again.
So at this point, your real goal is to stop your ejection fraction from falling any further — because at 26 percent, an implantable defibrillator is likely in your future. And if you’re a little older (as most heart failure patients are) there’s no telling how well you’ll handle the surgery… if at all.
An improvement to 34 percent, on the other hand, could put that surgery on hold, perhaps permanently. Heck, you could even ride that 34 percent to a normal life expectancy or beyond and eventually die of something completely unrelated to heart failure.
So make sure you take a D3 supplement daily. It can help your ticker whether you have heart failure or not — and can also help strengthen bone, sharpen the brain, chase off cancer and more.
There’s no such thing as a true “wonder drug.” But vitamin D is as close to a “wonder nutrient” as you’ll find.
