BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven Joyal, MD, from Life Extension, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla organization dedicated to health & wellness,  appears on The SUZANNE Show this week to reveal 12 "super foods" that promote cardiovascular health.  His appearance is one in a series devoted to easy solutions for healthy living, airing Wednesday, October 24, at 7 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.

Dr. Joyal selected foods, spices, and herbs based on studies that support strong health benefits.  "We showcase a variety of nutrients with a focus on heart health, given the fact that cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in American women," he explains.  "Although some of the nutrients will be familiar, many will be new."

Some of the unusual selections include Purslane, an exotic salad green that offers benefits to cellular longevity. Another is Natto, a fermented Japanese food rich in vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is critical to arterial and bone health, helping to keep calcium out of blood vessels and in bones. Others include raspberries and blueberries, loaded with powerful antioxidants, and turmeric root, scientifically-studied for health benefits involving the brain. 

"The goal is to work these tasty foods and beneficial nutrients  into your routine as much as possible," Dr. Joyal says.  "Make them regulars on your grocery list, and you will reap the health benefits."

Positive effects of super foods include immune system repair, heart health improvement, detoxification, and illness prevention.  Tune in this Wednesday to learn how to prolong your life without depriving your taste buds.  For more information on Life Extension, visit
