Ways to improve your heart’s health
It’s important to take care of your health
Ways to improve your heart’s health:- Sivachenduran B, the Co-founder of Danvanthiri Medical Tourism has explained that cardiovascular diseases are growing and that too at an alarming rate of 9.2 percent annually, with a growing mortality rate in India.
While one of the effective ways to deal with it is to control the risk factors, another simple way is to further inculcate a few simple habits into your routine for a healthy heart. Here are some you can start with.
Laugh out loud: The old adage, laughter has always been the best medicine and this still holds true. A jolly laugh not only relieves physical tension and also boosts the immune system but also further relaxes the muscles. When you laugh, the hormones get released which later help in fighting stress, which can damage the inner lining of the blood vessels and also hinder blood flow. So to promote proper functioning of blood vessel and heart health, keep on laughing.
Pet therapy: According to various studies by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), US, owning pets can not only improve your heart and lung function but also further lower the rate of mortality due to heart disease. This is because animal lovers can do more than just lifting your mood after a strenuous day at work.
Drink Red Wine: (but not other alcoholic beverages): If you have to drink, then just ditch other alcoholic beverages and start having wine made of red wine grapes. The skin of the grapes is rich in flavanoids and antioxidants, resveratrol, which further flushes out chemicals and toxins from the body, thereby lowering the risk of blood clots and also arterial damage, which can put you at risk of heart disease. But keep in mind that moderation is the key.
Walking: The health benefits of walking 10,000 steps a day cannot be underestimated. Right from aiding in weight loss to improve your heart health, brisk walking is a good way to workout. As, it not only helps you to keep your weight in control, but also further aids in improving blood flow to the heart.
