MegaHeart Announces Release of New Website

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — MegaHeart.com has announced that its new website is now online. "The new site is easier to navigate, provides more services including our free no salt, low sodium recipes," MegaHeart President Donald Gazzaniga said. "We create new recipes for heart patients, those with hypertension, Meniere's Syndrome and other maladies requiring a very low sodium diet."

MegaHeart's first appearance on the web came about the first week of December, 1998. "Since then, we've grown to the point where over 4,000 visitors a week download our free recipes," Gazzaniga reported.

Megaheart.com's new website has been under reconstruction for the past six months. The new site is expected to attract more visitors and help those who have been steady users to find information more easily.

MegaHeart.com from the start has provided a 28 day meal planning guide that holds sodium to under 500 mg a day. Combined with strict adherence to medication schedules and exercise, this low sodium diet helped Gazzaniga get off the heart transplant list.

The new site will feature an advisory staff of medical professionals who will respond to questions. Also added are additional chefs to create more new no salt, lowered sodium, lowered fat recipes. Registered Dietitians will be online to respond to questions about diets and nutritional values of specific foods. MegaHeart also features its own bookstore for health, cooking and other books. A kitchen store is online, featuring all the kitchen tools used to create and prepare featured recipes. A new pantry section features a no-salt-added and lowered sodium food products for visitors.

"A wealth of information for the heart patient is now available," said Dr. Michael Fowler, Director of the Stanford University Medical Transplant Clinic. "I refer many patients to them."

Free low sodium recipes, and other information and help, can be found at www.megaheart.com. "Visitors can sign up online for our monthly recipe newsletter," said Megaheart's news publicist, Frank Stevens. "With new monthly low-sodium and no-salt recipes, the newsletter has become very, very popular."
