TEAS FOR THE HEART to Call Attention to Heart Disease
CONCORD, Mass., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — In recognition of February's National Heart Health Month, Tea Forte, the global luxury tea company, announced today the launch of its new TEAS FOR THE HEART. This collection supports The Hope Heart Institute's mission of research and education to make heart disease – America's leading cause of death – more treatable, beatable and preventable.
"We are excited to partner with the heart health heroes of The Hope Heart Institute and their respected role in the elimination and prevention of cardiovascular and related diseases," states Tea Forte Marketing Director Jane Whitman. "With our new TEAS FOR THE HEART collection we hope to help call attention to the importance of protecting your heart from cardiovascular disease, which takes more lives than the next four causes of death combined."
"This is a very exciting partnership for The Hope Heart Institute because green tea has proven to have so many health benefits," said Mark Nudelman, President and CEO of The Hope Heart Institute. "Research has also shown that drinking green tea helps to lower the risk of heart disease. People who drink green tea have better blood vessel function in just 30 minutes."
Reinforcing its commitment to the cause, Tea Forte is offering the TEAS FOR THE HEART collection in an eye-catching heart-shaped box filled with a selection of delicious, antioxidant-rich, healthy green teas. The box features Hope Heart's recognizable 'heart' symbol to help raise awareness about making healthy lifestyle choices, the efforts being made to prevent and treat heart and blood vessel disease, and to improving the physical, emotional and spiritual quality of life for all at risk of – or affected by – cardiovascular disease.
