Eating for a Healthy Heart

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

February is National Heart Month – so I visited KUTV’s Fresh Living to talk about my favorite foods and supplements for bolstering heart health. See the segment HERE.


Choosing the right foods can improve heart health by lowering inflammation, reducing cholesterol, improving blood flow, and boosting energy levels.

Healthy fats can help reduce inflammation (fish, nuts, seeds) – and when you can’t eat enough servings of FATTY fish (salmon, trout, tuna, mackerel, sardines, anchovies, bluefish, etc), then you can supplement with a high-purity high-potency fish oil product like OmMega.

Brightly-colored fruits can help protect heart cells from oxidation (berries, citrus, peppers) – and when you can’t eat enough fresh fruits/veggies, you can get the phytonutrients from 3-servings of fruits/veggies in one serving of GBX SuperFood.

Beans and nuts provide fiber that can help reduce blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol levels – and when you can’t eat enough of these foods, you can get more fiber and phytonutrients from GBX SeedFiber.
