What you eat, affects you heart. If you eat unhealthy food, your heart may not like it. But if you eat healthy, your heart would love it. So how about you learn a list of things that are healthy for your heart? Cool, no?
Things that are heart healthy:
Dark chocolate is definitely a good option. This is because of the fact that they are rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols work to reduce the number of free oxygen radicals that are very harmful for the cell and it thus protects our heart from the damaging effects of free radicals.
If you love tea, you are lucky. Tea, whether green, black or white are overloaded with flavonoids which is good for heart and it increases blood flow.
It is surprising that keeping your teeth healthy affects the health of your heart in a positive way. So take care of your dental hygiene and minimize the risk of myocardial infarction.
Enjoy your self and laugh. Laughing has a very positive impact on your heart.
Meditate. It reduces the risk of strokes and MI.
Sleep more. Sleeping keeps the coronary arteries, the arteries that supply blood to your heart, from clotting and hence keep your heart healthy.
Recall pleasant memories. By doing this, you enhance your overall health and strengthen the most vital organ that is the heart.
Watch less TV. Sit in front of the TV for less than two hours because more than that doesn’t do well to your heart.
