Many people are very active as kids and while in high school, but during college and then working those long office hours as a young professional – the physical activity can dramatically decrease. This age is also often a time when fast food is an essential and drinking alcohol is a part of every weekend. Unfortunately, these types of lifestyle choices in someone’s 20s can have a negative impact on their heart health in their 40s.
According to a study conducted by Northeastern Medicine, unhealthy diets, weight gain and decreased physical activity in adulthood can lead to high cholesterol and blood pressure, diabetes and an increased risk of cardiovascular problems.
“In this study, even people with a family history of heart problems were able to have a low cardiovascular disease risk profile if they started living a healthy lifestyle when they were young. This supports the notion that lifestyle may play a more prominent role than genetics,” said the study author, Kiang Liu.
Taking an all-natural supplement may help support a person’s healthy lifestyle. Gold Standard Protein is one product available at Dr. Newton’s Naturals that can promote healthy weight loss and an overall better quality of life.
