LAS VEGAS, February 3, 2022 — Healthy Extracts Inc. (OTCQB: HYEX), a leading innovator of clinically proven plant-based products for heart and brain health, has launched a new video series focused on cardiovascular health to commemorate American Heart Month.
American Heart Month was introduced to raise awareness of cardiovascular health issues like hypertension (high blood pressure), the leading risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S., according to the CDC.
An estimated 80% of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, are preventable. However, the American Heart Association reports that about 659,000 people in the U.S. die from heart disease every year—accounting for 1 in every 4 deaths—and it costs the U.S. about $363 billion each year. This includes the cost of health care services, medicines, and lost productivity.
In 2021, heart disease deaths amounted to more deaths than COVID. The CDC reports that having heart-related conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies and high blood pressure, can make you more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19.
To address this pervasive health problem, Healthy Extracts’ new video series highlights steps people can take to improve their heart health. The first video in the series, “5 Ways to Naturally Lower Your Cholesterol,” was posted today on the company’s YouTube page here. The company plans to release one video per week this month.
The series is hosted by Healthy Extracts advisory board member, Dr. Kahn. He is widely recognized as “America’s Healthy Heart Doc,” and is a clinical professor of medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine. He has appeared on Dr. Phil, The Doctors Show, Dr. Oz, Larry King Now, The Joe Rogan Experience, and The Show hosted by Bassem Yousef.
In the video, Dr. Kahn discusses natural ways to lower cholesterol: “My favorite way to naturally lower cholesterol is Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™. It predominately grows in Southern Italy in Calabria, where people enjoy exceptional health and that has led to university studies. There are more than two dozen studies in humans just on cholesterol and Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit. I love it so much because it comes in a capsule form and is easy to take.”
“We use a lot of BergaMet Citrus Bergamot in my clinic,” added Dr. Kahn. “We use it alone in place of statin for people who can’t tolerate a statin, and we use it with statin because research shows that combining it provides even more benefits.”
A clinical study demonstrated that the BPF contained in Healthy Extracts’ proprietary Citrus Bergamot formulations can significantly enhance the beneficial effects of rosuvastatin, one of the most prescribed drugs for reducing cardiometabolic risk.
Backed by clinical testing, Healthy Extracts is the only authorized company in the U.S. and Canada to distribute and manufacture the highest strength Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit with 47% BPF (bergamot-derived polyphenolic fraction) potency. This compares to Healthy Extracts closest competitor at only 38% BPF.
Dr. Kahn has authored numerous hearth health articles and books, including Your Whole Heart Solution, Dead Execs Don’t Get Bonuses, The Plant-Based Solution, and Lipoprotein(a): The Heart’s Quiet Killer.
“American Heart Month reminds everyone to take this time to focus on their cardiovascular health,” commented Duke Pitts, president of Healthy Extracts. “It’s difficult for many of us to change our diet and exercise habits, but our Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit makes it easy. Best of all, it has no known negative side effects, while delivering the heart benefits Dr. Kahn so aptly describes.”
Also in celebration of American Heart Month, Health Extracts is offering a limited time discounts for our natural, clinically-backed supplements that support heart health. This includes two new high-potency natural formulations containing its exclusive Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit.
For a limited time, you can purchase two Citrus Bergamot products and receive a third free while supplies last. To order Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit, go to bergametna.com.
