5 Healthy Heart Tips…

Other than drinking Rose Blossom tea, you may want to follow these tips to help in keeping your heart heathy. (Ref: from clevelandclinic)

 …

1. Eat healthy fats, NOT trans fats

We need fats in our diet, including saturated and polyunsaturated and unsaturated fats. But for trans fat or industry-produced fats found in packaged baked goods, snack foods, margarines and fried fast foods to add flavor and texture are the ones we do not need. This will only increases the chances of you having a heart disease or a stroke over a lifetime as trans fat clogs up the arteries by raising your bad cholesterol levels (LDL) and lowering your good cholesterol levels (HDL). You want to improve the blood flow throughout your body.

Tip: Trans fat appears on the ingredients list as partially hydrogenated oils.

  …

2. Practice good dental hygiene.

Studies have shown that bacteria in the mouth involved in the development of gum disease can move into the bloodstream and cause an elevation in C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation in the blood vessels. These changes may in turn, increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Tip: Floss and brush your teeth daily to ward off cavities fighting gum disease.

3. Get enough sleep

No matter your age or other health habits, if you don’t get enough sleep, you may be at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease. One study looking at 3,000 adults over the age of 45 found that those who slept fewer than six hours per night were about twice as likely to have a stroke or heart attack as people who slept six to eight hours per night. Researchers believe sleeping too little causes disruptions in underlying health conditions and biological processes, including blood pressure and inflammation.

Tip: Make sleep a priority. Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep most nights. (Oh dear! I am so bad at this!) If you have sleep apnea, you should be treated as this condition is linked to heart disease and arrhythmias.

 … 

4. Don’t sit for too long at one time

(Oh dear again!) In recent years, research has suggested that staying seated for long periods of time is bad for your health no matter how much exercise you do. Sitting for long periods of time (especially when traveling) increases your risk of deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot). In addition, increases in cardiovascular events.

Tip: Experts say it’s important to move throughout the day. Park farther away from the office, take a few shorter walks throughout the day and/or use a standing work station so you can move up and down. And remember to exercise on most days.

 … 

5. Avoid secondhand smoke like the plague

The chemicals emitted from cigarette smoke promote the development of plaque buildup in the arteries. Studies show that the risk of developing heart disease is about 25 to 30% higher for people who are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work. Exposure to tobacco smoke contributes to premature heart disease deaths and lung cancer deaths each year. And nonsmokers who have high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol have an even greater risk of developing heart disease when they’re exposed to secondhand smoke.

Tip: Be firm with smokers that you do not want to be around environmental smoke—and keep children away from secondhand smoke.
