Hi everyone, it’s podcast host, Marissa here!
Welcome back to another episode of the wellness on purpose podcast!
One of the leading causes of death in Canadians is heart disease. After further research on the causes of heart disease, I found that heart disease is more common in those who were deficient in omega 3. Consuming different types of fats has become a controversial topic in regards to heart health, which is why I have asked our friends Darren Wright and Diana Gifford- Jones to join us to chat about how healthy fats that contain omegas 3’s can in fact help to reduce the risks of developing heart disease.
In this episode, we are sharing ways in which you can make changes to your lifestyle and dietary habits to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease starting today.
