A Quick, Simple, Heart-Healthy Guacamole Recipe

Show some love to your heart by using Olive Your Heart® single-serving packets daily. They're delicious, convenient, and heart healthy. Olive Your Heart® is a supplement that combines the cardiovascular benefits of extra virgin olive oil and omega-3s from Norwegian fish oil.
 
The Health Benefits of Omega-3s and Olive Oil
Olives and extra-virgin olive oil contain phytonutrients, called polyphenols. Oleuropein is one of the most researched of the polyphenols and has been found to support healthy blood vessels, promote healthy blood flow, and help maintain healthy blood fat levels. All of these body functions are essential to heart health.
 
Omega-3s also provide many vital health benefits, including promoting heart, brain, joint, vision, mood, and even skin health. In regards to heart health, omega-3s help maintain healthy triglyceride levels already within normal range, and support healthy blood vessels, circulation, and arterial wall elasticity. Omega-3s are essential to good health, and since our bodies cannot make them, we have to get them from the food we eat. That includes fish like salmon, cod, mackerel, and sardines. If you’re not eating these types of fish on a regular basis, Olive Your Heart® is a tasty, easy alternative.
 
Tasty Ways to Use Olive Your Heart®
Olive Your Heart® comes in four different flavors: basil, lemon, garlic, and natural. You can drink a single serving packet directly out of the packaging, you can add it to salads as a dressing, stir it into yogurt, mix it into dips, or drizzle it over cooked meat or vegetables (note: Olive Your Heart® should not be heated.). Each packet contains a whopping 1,480 mg of omega-3s.
