We are told that diet and exercise are the keys to cardio health. Don’t smoke, don’t drink in excess and eat a low fat/cholesterol diet and exercise and all should be well. Am I correct to assume that you eat a healthy diet and don’t smoke and don’t drink a lot(or at all)? I think most, if not all, would consider biking 20miles per day a sufficient exercise regimen. Those keys to cardio health are spot on but there is one additional and very cheap, very important and very non-patentable thing missing from the equation which is ascorbic acid(vitamin C).
There are only four species of mammals which do not make their own ascorbate(vitamin C). These are humans, gorillas, guinea pigs and fruit bats. Hibernating mammals such as bears have cholesterol levels that exceed 400mg/dl yet they do not have heart disease like humans do. The difference is they produce massive amounts of ascorbic acid in their livers 24/7.

You will find out why your healthy lifestyle has not made you immune to atherosclerosis(blockage/heart disease) and most importantly, you will find out how to reverse your atherosclerosis.
