New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Best Diet for Heart Disease (or Heart Attack)?
so the question today is what will be the best diet for heart disease well let’s look at the things that can actually cause the heart attack first of all the coronary artery okay it becomes clogged that is going to obstruct blood flow to the heart muscle and the heart muscle is gonna cramp and your heart attack okay that would be one okay so now let’s talk about arrhythmias you have a problem with the pacemaker the rhythm of the heart is off and blood can pool in different parts of the heart and then it can develop a clot that clot can then spread and clog an artery and then you have a heart attack and then we have the heart muscle itself let’s say you don’t have a clogged artery but the heart muscle itself just cramps to the point where it’s like a muscle cramp at a new heart and you just basically die of a heart attack so these are three different mechanisms so let’s reverse engineer and look at the whole sequence of events that happens that leads up to some plaque or a clot so you don’t just end up with plaque you and you start with inflammation okay so we have some type of damage going on in the wall of this coronary artery then the body starts accumulating cholesterol protein and calcium as a band-aid okay and so you start developing clacking you can also develop a clot and then when it gets big enough it can either dislodge or to stop the flow of the artery and then we don’t we no longer have oxygen to the muscle tissue so what causes inflammation or oxidation is high levels of insulin usually okay and also low nutrients it’s a deadly combination it’s the nutrients specifically the antioxidants that protect the tissue against the oxidation or inflammation so if you don’t consume enough vegetables to get your vitamin E or your vitamin C or foods that have the beet complex then you set yourself up for more damage in the artery so we want to make sure that your diet is not high in insulin okay that’s number one so of course we want to get rid of the refined sugars and the refined carbohydrates okay and how do we get our antioxidants a lot of vegetables will do it okay so as far as the b-complex goes because the B vitamins are on a lot of foods but if you’re consuming the refined sugars and carbs that’s going to deplete the B vitamins think about when you buy food with flour why do they enrich it with B vitamins because when they refine the flour they take out the B vitamins and so when you consume that flour without the B vitamins you basically you create a deficiency of more B vitamins because it takes those B vitamins to metabolize that carbohydrate okay the more carbohydrates you consume the more B vitamins you need to metabolize that consuming a lot of refined grains and sugars depletes the B vitamin complex all right now let’s talk about arrhythmias what nutrients control the rhythm of the heart electrolytes okay specifically potassium and magnesium so what foods contain potassium magnesium you guessed it vegetables things like avocado leafy green anything leafy green would have magnesium in it and it just so happens that both of these minerals are in vegetables so if you’re not consuming any vegetables and you’re consuming a lot again refined carbohydrates you set yourself up for depleting the electrolytes and by the way when you develop insulin resistance you you don’t absorb potassium or magnesium that well so that can exaggerate the problem all right let’s talk about the heart muscle itself let’s see you don’t have a clogged artery but you are very low in vitamin E okay vitamin E has a very specific purpose of increasing oxygen in the heart muscle itself but if you’re low in vitamin E the heart has to work harder and it will have a tendency to cramp up and this could create angina and lead to a heart attack a vitamin B deficiency will also do it as well so you need vitamin B and vitamin E for the heart muscle and by the way by the mini as an antioxidant protects the lining of the artery okay so it’s a very protective nutrient and I mentioned this before the way you become deficient in vitamin E and in vitamin B is consuming refined grades so it’s not always about just not consuming that nutrient it could be that you’re consuming things that are depleting that nutrient a lot of refined grains as in white flour will deplete your vitamin E and your vitamin B’s okay and of course you probably see this all the time that you have to consume whole grains for a healthy heart but in reality and most of those whole grains come with a lot of refined grain which they’re saying that’s acceptable but any amount of refined grains will deplete these nutrients so and the problem with whole grains is yes whole grain does consume a lot of vitamin E and to be complex but as soon as you grind the grain which is the seed of grass it oxidizes and you lose those nutrients so yes it’s true that whole grains do contain quite a bit of vitamin E and we think about wheat germ oil okay wheat germ oil it’s low to fight a mini and even to be complex but when you grind the grain into flour that’s when you oxidize those nutrients so when you buy this a whole grain bread you’re you’re not realizing that they made that bread weeks before and they I don’t know when they ground the flour it probably wasn’t fresh so they grind the flour it sits in the shelf it oxidizes and then they make the bread out of whole grain well those vitamins already destroyed unless you yourself are able to grind your grain and then make your bread but of course if you did that you’re going to be raising insulin because of the nature of the carbohydrates so yes you’ll have the vitamins in there that will protect you to some degree but you also have the spike in insulin so we’re recommending not doing grains on this eating plan you know I just realized something this really resembles the ketogenic plan doesn’t it it does Wow what a coincidence so how if the keto is what I’m gonna recommend for supporting a healthy heart so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications daily notifications that sounds weird well I’ll just remind you on a daily basis how about that

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the best diet for heart disease and the several causes of heart attack.
Causes of Heart Attack:
1. Clogged Coronary Artery – It abstracts the blood flow to the heart muscle.
There is always some type of damage or inflammation beforehand happening in the wall of the coronary artery – then the body starts accumulating cholesterol, protein and calcium as a Band-Aid which causes to start developing plaques, clot and if it became big enough, it can either dislodge or stop the flow of the artery which couldn’t supply oxygen to the muscle tissue.
The cause of inflammation is high levels of insulin and low nutrients.
2. Arrhythmia – problem with the pacemaker, the rhythm of the heart is off and blood can pull in different parts of the heart which could develop a clot and the clot could spread and clog an artery.
Potassium and magnesium are the nutrients that control the rhythm of the heart.
3. Heart Muscle (Muscle Cramps) – vitamin E has a very specific purpose of increasing oxygen in the heart muscle. But if you are low in vitamin E, the heart has to work harder and it will have a tendency to cramp up that could lead to angina and heart attack.

Healthy ketogenic diet is recommended to support a healthy heart.
