Don’t Smoke – Pack-a-day smokers experience more than twice the risk of having a heart attack than do nonsmokers, and smoking affects others. It is estimated that roughly 35,000 nonsmokers annually die from heart disease as a result of second-hand exposure to tobacco smoke.
– There are numerous studies that have found regular exercise can help reverse problems that lead to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Work gradually to achieve 30 to 45 minutes of exercise, three to four times per week.
Limit Alcohol Consumption – While moderate amounts of alcohol can protect the heart by raising HDL (good) cholesterol and reducing arterial plaque, more than three drinks a day can lead to an enlarged and weakened heart, congestive heart failure, a higher triglyceride level, high blood pressure and stroke.
Eat Well and Control Weight – Maintain a healthy weight with a Mediterranean-style diet which is known for its low incidence of heart disease. This diet features whole grains, fruits, vegetables, seafood and healthy fats. Also to ensure good cardiovascular health, take a daily natural supplement that specifically benefits heart health – these can be found through natural supplement websites.
