February is Heart Healthy Month ~ Go Red This Friday! MySpaWater News Letter:
“Go Red” This Friday!
Friday, February 3rd is National Wear Red Day. The American Heart Association created this annual campaign to help raise awareness about women and heart disease. On this date, they are encouraging everyone to wear red and to share with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about the importance of living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
This Friday, we are going to make some Raspberry Lime Spa Water (on page 5 of our Spa Water Book), a delicious recipe provided by the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa,since it is ”red” in color and offers many nutrients that are so good for the heart. Berries are rich in powerful antioxidants that provide many health benefits to the cardiovascular system (and beyond).
According to Nutrition Now, clinical research suggests adequate hydration may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by 46% in men and 59% in women. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is important as it will also help flush out toxins and impurities that can be taxing to our bodies. This February, take the time to be good to your heart by exercising daily, eating a healthy diet, lowering stress levels and drinking plenty of water (#1 elixir of life).
If you are planning a ”Go Red for Women” event or just want to start making heart-healthy drinks, then be sure to give the Raspberry Lime Spa Water from the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa a try.
