Being heart healthy means taking care of your cardiovascular system. You don't have to be a professional athlete or dietician to keep your heart healthy - all you have to do is make smart choices everyday. These choices include exercise and paying attention to what you eat.
Regular exercise is a great way to keep your heart working the way it should. No matter what your schedule looks like, you can find at least twenty minutes a day to go for a brisk walk, take a jog, or get in a cardio workout at the gym. Keeping up a fitness routine will not only keep your heart healthy but it will also keep your body lean and keep you feeling energetic and upbeat.
What you put into your body is so important for overall health. Eating a well-rounded diet of lean meats, fish, eggs, lentils, beans and vegetables can improve heart health. Heart healthy foods are great because they can help with circulation, promote a healthy blood flow, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, can help clear blockage and blood clots, and help with inflammation. You can also keep your heart healthy by taking certain supplements, like omega-3 fatty acids and fish oil, and plant sterols.
