Are you looking for a way to get an advantage in the fight against preventing cardiovascular disease? Is your cardiovascular health becoming more of a priority, but you don’t feel like you can take back the control you’d like to have?
Recent studies have shown that short-chain fatty acids can have a drastic effect on your ability to fight cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, and much more.
What are Short Chain Fatty Acids?
Science daily describes short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in their article here as:
“Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which include acetate, propionate, and butyrate, are produced by bacteria in the gut during fermentation of insoluble fiber from dietary plant matter.”
Where Can You Find SCFAs?
Though there aren’t specific foods that contain short-chain fatty acids, there is a simple way to increase the amount your body has available. As stated in the definition, SCFAs are produced in the gut during the fermentation of insoluble fiber.
Thus, the only way to increase the amount of SCFA present within your system is to increase your intake of fiber on a daily basis.
This is good news! Increasing your fiber intake can be done simply by adding foods to your diet on a daily basis such as those provided here. As any change in the diet can be difficult, you will notice that many of the foods you may already love are full of fiber.
Being intentional about the food you eat and ensuring that you’re getting the proper amounts of fiber can impact your health in big ways for years to come.
How Will Increased Short Chain Fatty Acids Change Your Cardiovascular Health?
Research shows that there is evidence that increased fiber intake and the increased secretion of SCFAs could impact your metabolism and affect your ability to lose weight. Weight loss, or the ability to control your weight, can have a large impact on controlling your cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors.
This study by J. Cardiovasc Nurs from 2006 shows there is evidence of, “an increasing number of observational findings have reported a lower incidence of coronary heart disease in subjects who report consuming diets high in fiber.”
There are multiple risk factors for CVD that can be affected positively by the increased intake of dietary fiber. How much fiber do you get daily? Is it time to increase that? Your heart says it is.
How Can Mind Muscle Memory (M3) Help?
M3 is on the leading edge of nutritional guidance in the fitness industry. With the development of the Original Sticky Fiber Diet protocol, we have developed a diet that is focused on the implementation of more dietary fiber on a regular basis.
This program will help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and will help you fight many of the diseases that lead to the cause of death of Americans today.
