5 Ways to Keep Your Heart Healthy

five ways to keep your heart healthy

The heart is the most important organ of our body, so it requires much more specialized care and attention. The heart is the internal engine of our body. If it were to stop, we would cease to exist in a few seconds.

As important as it is, it is easy to care for, not requiring expensive food or sophisticated treatments. However, the heart remains a delicate organ of our body, an organ to which we must offer certain things that it needs.

Here are five ways to keep your heart healthy

Eat more walnuts. A diet low in nutrients dramatically affects the health of the heart, making it to no longer function within normal parameters. If the heart suffers, then your entire body suffers as well. How can you bring more nutrients to your body? You could do that by eating walnuts. As their shape shows (well they kinda look like a brain), they help us to stimulate the brain and mind. Researchers have shown that average consumption of nuts can reduce a lot the risk of developing respiratory diseases, diabetes, and infections.

Consume more vegetables as they are healthy foods, not just for your heart only, but for your entire body as well.
Consumed raw, cooked or baked with olive oil, they give us that energy and good mood we need.

Avoid depression. Stress can kill, but depression can have the same effect. Researchers say that depression triggered by past or present events increases the risk of developing heart disease far more than genetic or environmental factors. The explanation is that the heart of people with mental health problems is subject to chronic inflammation. In some cases, treating psychiatric disorders may contribute to the disappearance of cardiovascular disease.
People who received antidepressants have improved their blood flow due to slower aggregation of platelets (thrombocytes).

Eat seeds of any kind. Consumed in different states, they also play an equally important role in stabilizing the rhythm of the heart and the human body.

Include tomatoes in your daily diet. You should consume, every day, a glass of red juice with lycopene, a nutrient that reduces bad cholesterol production. People who drank about one or two glasses of tomato juice, every day for three weeks, managed to lower bad cholesterol values by 8.5 percent, according to a study.

To keep your heart functioning at its best, you must reduce the consumption of salt, fats, and sugar.
