Thrive patch

The Thrive Patch is a transdermal patch, or plaster, that allegedly helps weight loss by releasing active ingredients into the skin. Proponents recommend it as part of an 8-week weight management course. The Thrive Patch is part of an 8-week weight management and lifestyle experience. Although it contains a few ingredients that scientific research has shown can help weight loss, there is a lack of research looking at the benefits of the patch itself. There are some potential risks of using a Thrive Patch. These include weight gain after use and, possibly, anxiety. More research is necessary to examine the potential long-term risks. It may be worth approaching the Thrive Patch with a bit of skepticism.

AFib diet

AFib is a type of arrhythmia that affects the upper chambers of the heart. The electrical impulses that control these chambers fire in a disorganized way, which leads to an irregular heartbeat. AFib itself is not a life threatening condition. However, it can increase the risk of stroke, blood clots, and congestive heart failure. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommend that people who experience AFib consume foods low in saturated fats, trans fats, salt, and cholesterol. A 2017 review found that a plant-based diet high in fruit, vegetables, and whole grains can decrease obesity and hypertension. As these are risk factors for AFib, such dietary measures may help prevent someone from developing the condition. There is also evidence to suggest that the Mediterranean diet may help reduce the risk of AFib. A 2014 study suggests that olive oil, in particular, is a beneficial part of the diet. Diet can help reduce the risk factors that cause AFib and, in some cases, reduce its symptoms. The Mediterranean diet or a plant-based diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and unsaturated fats may benefit overall heart health, lower cholesterol, and reduce the risk of a heart attack. Other changes that may improve AFib include doing moderate exercise several times per week, getting high quality sleep, stopping smoking, and prioritizing time to relax and reduce stress.
