The older we get, the more we feel like we’re in control of our lives. However, we often forget about one of the most important aspects: our health. A healthy heart not only keeps you alive; it keeps you active, energetic and in love with life. Making simple changes to take control of your cholesterol and is the first step towards taking care of your heart.
Cardiovascular disease remains the world’s biggest killer, and around a third of heart disease is caused by high cholesterol. With this in mind, Flora Pro.activ have set a goal to help people take control of their cholesterol.
Believing that every heart matters, together with doctors, nutritionists and several heart foundations, Flora is working hard to help lower cholesterol levels of 250 million adults globally.
Achieving a positive change is largely dependant on each and every individual to make the right lifestyle choices, but there is help to be found. The plant sterols in Flora Pro.activ can actively help reduce cholesterol by up to 7-10%1.
The Flora Pro.activ ‘It takes a village’ programme has seen villages globally wise up to the risks of high cholesterol. The brand visited villages across South Africa, Germany, Australia, Spain and Greece and invited people to participate in the study. Participants that wanted to lower their cholesterol took the three-week cholesterol lowering challenge, consisting of healthy eating habits, exercise and Flora Pro.activ. In just three weeks, an average of 90% of participants reported a significant reduction in their cholesterol levels.
Have a look at the stories of citizens from Symy, a little island from Greece, who decided to take up the Flora Pro.activ cholesterol challenge, last September 2012:
1A daily consumption of 1,5 - 2,4g plant sterols can lower cholesterol with 7-10% in 2-3 weeks as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, with sufficient consumption of fruit and vegetables. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. As coronary heart disease has multiple risk factors, more than one may need to be improved to reduce overall risk of it/coronary heart disease.
