Drink yourself Heart Healthy?!?

So the question is:  Red Wine, is it good for your heart? The big answer: Mabe?!? Basically there are antioxidants called resveratrol and flavonoids naturally found in the wine.  So yes antioxidants are great for you, but why wine?  Is this just an excuse to drink wine, and if so, how much per day do you need to drink to benefit from the antioxidants? After researching myself, I basically found that yes all wine contains antioxidants.  Red wine has more antioxidants because it is fermented longer with the grape skins.  But, (yes there is a but) if you truly are drinking the wine for the antioxidants, you can simply eat grapes or drink grape juice.  There are many other foods that have antioxidants too!  Examples are:

My conclusion is; if you are drinking wine because you want a glass of wine, then you are adding to your daily list of antioxidants, enjoy!  Yay, two birds, one stone.  If you are drinking wine for the antioxidants it would be better to have a bowl of fruit salad.

So don’t drink for your health, drink to it!

Have a Heart Healthy Day!

Alert the Press!

Heart Smart CPR is now a training site!

As of November 21st Heart Smart CPR is accepting new CPR instructors through our new CPR instructor certification.  This is a huge step forward for our company.  It has been quite a year and it all came together with this step in the right direction.  I plan to expand further in the future, but for now we will focus on training Heartsaver CPR and AED instructors and BLS for Healthcare providers instructors.  Austin CPR is vital to so many different fields, and there is so much room for the American Heart Association to spread life-saving knowledge; and I am so excited to be a part of the expansion.  If you have every considered becoming a CPR in Texas, give me a call and we can talk about if our CPR instructor certification is right for you!
