Healthy Heart Tips For Men
The heart drives life in all other parts of the body, hence considered
the most important organs of all. A healthy heart is therefore vital
for a person’s well-being, which is why you need to be careful with it.
With more men dying out of heart diseases than any other illnesses,
it’s important that one works hard to ensure his heart is in top
condition. Some of the factors that lead to heart conditions include
poor lifestyles, obesity, poor nutrition, lack of body exercise,
depression, and cigarette smoking among others. You can however protect
your heart by:
1. Eating healthy:
Proper nutrition is the key to a healthy heart. Choosing the
right, and nutritive, foods for your diet plan is therefore essential
for your health and heart. Although processed and fast foods may
be enticing, it would be advisable to go for healthy options such as
whole foods, cereals, brown bread, brown rice, lean meat, chia seeds,
carrots, and fresh vegetables. You also need to ensure each meal is
balanced for better health. Including lean meat, high-quality
carbohydrates, essential oils, and veggies provide your body with all
the essential nutrients. In addition to this, whole foods help reduce
LDL levels in the body hence reducing heart attack or hypertension
2. Eat more fruits
and vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are healthy sources of
vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and essential oils. Vitamins are
some of the most powerful antioxidants that help get rid of toxins from
body cells (heart tissue) while essential oils are vital for tissue
health. Including more fruits and vegetables in your diet plan also
helps improve HDL levels in the body.
3. Maintain the
recommended BMI: If you are obese or overweight, you could
be overworking your heart. Trying to shed down some weight by
exercising and reducing overdependence on fast foods can be helpful to
your heart. Losing weight also reduces pressure on heart muscles and
blood vessels hence a healthier heart.
4. Regular body
exercise: Just because you have a physically fit body doesn’t
mean your heart is healthy. You should try to get at least 30 minutes’
worth of body exercise every day to help promote heart health. Since we
cannot all fit in a gym, you could try swimming or brisk walking every
day. Brisk walking comes in handy especially for seniors who may not be
capable of lifting weights or even jog in the morning.
5. Drink plenty of
water: Pure water is also recommended for your overall health.
Although more than 70% of your body is made of water, you still need to
drink at least eight glasses of water daily to maintain perfect body
ph. Water also helps wash away toxins and toxic waste from body cells
thus facilitating improved health and performance.
Although regular body exercise and proper nutrition are required for a
healthy heart, you still need to grasp at least 8 hours of sleep/rest.
Our body cells and tissues regenerate while we sleep, which is one of
the reasons you should get plenty of rest. You may also want to reduce
alcohol intake or quit cigarette smoking for better health.
