Tips to Prevent Heart

Disease

 

013

* DO NOT SMOKE
Smoking restricts the circulation of blood and at the same time increases your body's requirement for vitamins A, C and E. It can also increase blood pressure and cause irregular heartbeats.
 
* REDUCE THE INTAKE OF CAFFEINE
Coffee, tea and chocolate contain caffeine. They should be taken in moderation. Limit yourself to two cups of coffee a day.
 
* EAT A HEALTHY DIET
Eat a diet high in fresh fruit and vegetables or one that is high in fibre. Reduce the intake of red meat or diets high in animal fat. This can help to prevent the hardening of arteries which is one of the main causes of high blood pressure, strokes and heart disease.
 
* LIMIT THE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL
Alcohol should be taken in moderation. Excessive intake of alcohol can lead to the hardening of the liver and other heart ailments.
 

* LEAD A LESS STRESSFUL LIFE

Stop worrying and learn to relax. People who are aggressive and impatient have a higher incidence of heart disease. Take up a hobby and make time for yourself.
 
* EXERCISE
You need to exercise 15 to 20 minutes three times a week to lead a healthy life. Exercise helps you to relax and is a great way to manage stress.
 
* MAINTAINING THE CORRECT BODY WEIGHT
Try and maintain the correct body weight relative to your height. Being overweight reduces your fitness and increases the load on your heart.
 
* SUPPLEMENT DIET WITH GOOD FAT
Supplement your diet with good fats such as fish oil and evening primrose oil. These oils provide essential fatty acids that can protect against the development of heart disease.
