The month of February celebrates Valentine’s Day, and Aster Pharmacy is encouraging everyone to take some time and give their hearts some extra love! A human heart requires nurturing, attention and good care if it is to be healthy and functioning perfectly. With a major shift in lifestyle and daily routines, one tends to overlook the care and attention given to one of the most important organs in the body.
Many health conditions and lifestyle choices contribute to cardiac diseases, which is the No.1 cause of fatalities around the world. These include high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity. Unhealthy diets, smoking and leading a sedentary lifestyle, among others, are also key contributors to cardiac diseases.
The good news is that cardiovascular diseases can often be prevented when people make healthy choices. Daily exercise and drastically reducing or eliminating certain types of foods such as canned foods, frozen, processed and packaged meals. Incorporating foods such as fish and flax seeds rich in omega-3,
phytonutrient rich berries, oatmeal filled with fiber and vitamins, carrots, sweet potatoes and red peppers, oranges and papaya rich in potassium and magnesium can go a long way in ensuring that not only your heart but your body gets only the best of nature’s produce. Minimizing salt-intake can help to greatly improve the overall functioning of the heart through lowered blood pressure.
Undergoing regular health checkups are very important to an individual’s well-being as it allows you to monitor and find potential health issues before they become a problem. By getting the correct health services, screenings and treatment, you are taking important steps toward living a longer, healthy life. Besides regular heart health screenings, BP and glucose monitors to monitor your health regularly and introducing supplement essentials formulated from the best ingredients are other simple but important ways to maintain a happy and healthy heart.
