Tips for Healthy Heart

With a pledge to improve our health this World Heart Day, let’s look at some of the crucial tips which can healthify your heart really soon:

Eating Healthy: 

You must consume a wholesome and balanced diet. It is advised to eat whole foods, green leafy vegetables, and fruits. Consuming 2-3 types of fruits and vegetables every day can significantly reduce cholesterol levels and have proven to lower the risk of cancer, stroke, and other heart diseases. At the same time, you must cut down unwanted fats, junk or fried food, salt, and sugars from your diet.


If you are just starting, you can begin with slow-paced cardio or brisk walking 20-30 minutes a day and gradually increase as you get the hang of it. Regular exercise reduces cholesterol levels, improves blood sugar regulation and cardiovascular strength. Exercise also helps in better regulation of your parasympathetic nervous system.

Stop Smoking: 

If you smoke, quit today. In addition to permanently harming your heart and blood vessels, cigarette smoke causes CVD by disrupting your blood chemical system and causing plaques to build up in your arteries – the biggest blood vessels that deliver blood from your heart to your body.

Cut Down on Alcohol: 

Alcohol reduces your body’s immunity. Cutting down your alcohol consumption will further help in the speedy recovery of your heart.

Regular checkups: 

Regular visits to a General Practitioner can help you keep track of your heart health. If you already have heart-related issues, Statins to lower blood cholesterol, low-dose aspirin to avoid blood clots, and blood pressure pills are medications that the doctor may prescribe. Expert supervision and medication will keep any future possibilities of health illnesses at bay.
