Reduce Heart Disease Risk*
Heart disease is the #1 killer of both women and men in the U.S. Some experts estimate that an astounding 140 million Americans are at risk for heart disease, or 1 out of every 2 people. Unfortunately, most people don’t learn of their condition until it’s too late.
What Causes Heart Disease?
The primary factors for an increased risk of heart disease are:
- High cholesterol & high blood pressure
- A high-fat, high-cholesterol diet
- Being overweight or physical inactivity
- Age, sex and family history
Can Soy Lower Heart Disease Risk?
After years of carefully reviewing human clinical studies on soy and cholesterol, the FDA concluded that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.1 This amount is easy to achieve with just one Revival bar or shake and a Revival snack daily, because each Revival Soy shake or bar gives you 20 grams of soy protein, and each Revival Baked Soy Chips snack gives you an additional 7 grams of soy protein.
Revival's great taste makes adding 25 grams of soy protein or more per day to your diet not only easy but also delicious.
Average Time Until Results: Long-term daily use.
