The Top 5 Ways to Prevent Heart Disease

Thursday, November 14, 2013 2:38:19 PM America/Chicago

 

Although heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States, it is often labeled as an unknown or silent killer, as many people who suffer from it have minor or unrecognizable symptoms. Because women can have very different symptoms from men, heart disease is often diagnosed too late, or in some cases, not at all. 

 

There are ways to prevent the onset of heart disease while you’re still healthy. The proper diet, lifestyle, and exercise can greatly lessen the chances of heart disease taking over your life.

 

 5 ways to Prevent Heart Disease:

 

1. Proper Exercise - Exercise is a major factor in the successful prevention of heart disease. Walking at least 30 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week consistently, is a great way to remain healthy and strengthen the heart.

 

2. No Smoking - If you are a tobacco smoker, it is necessary to stop smoking in order to prevent it from affecting your heart. If you’ve never smoked, it is best to keep it that way. Smokers have a significantly higher risk of getting heart disease than non-smokers. By narrowing the blood vessels, nicotine makes the heart work harder to pump blood through the body. Studies have found that even non-smokers who are consistently around smokers, are in danger of inhaling second hand smoke. So stay clear of the tobacco products as much as possible.

 

3. Heart Healthy Diet - Eating a nutritional diet is one of the best ways to prevent heart disease. Foods low in cholesterol, fat, and sodium, are a part of a heart healthy diet plan. It is good to consume foods rich in healthy fats like omega 3. Salmon is one of those foods rich in omega 3 fats, and olive oil is also a great addition to a healthy eating plan. Steer clear of unhealthy fats, such as, saturated and trans fats. Red meats, deep fried foods, and many pre-packaged items are foods that should be taken off of your list.

 

4. Regular Check-Ups - Visiting the doctor at least once a year, for a physical exam, is another effective prevention method. Getting regular check-ups can help to prevent heart disease and many other health conditions. Finding signs and symptoms ahead of time can make a real difference in preventing and reversing the disease.

 

5. Maintain a Healthy Weight - Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the simplest, yet most challenging ways to prevent heart disease. If you find it difficult to eat healthily and exercise, seek counsel from your doctor who may have suggestions and referrals to a dietician or nutritionist that can help lessen the challenge.

 

Lastly, consider helping your heart by taking natural supplements.  For example, Arginine Infusion supplements from Sante Global can improve your cardiovascular health, especially when you take it in accordance with the aforementioned recommendations.

Natural Ways to Reduce High Blood Pressure

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 9:07:13 AM America/Chicago

High blood pressure is one of the most common ailments afflicting Americans today. Also known as “hypertension,” high blood pressure is a medical condition where blood pressure in your arteries is elevated, forcing your heart to work hard to pump blood.


There’s a long list of why you or your loved one would not want high blood pressure, including stroke, heart attack, heart failure, aneurysms of the arteries, kidney disease, and, to top it off, a shortened life expectancy.

To combat high blood pressure, try reducing the amount of salt and alcohol in your diet. Eat more fresh fruit and veggies. And for goodness sake, don’t just say you’ll exercise, but actually engage in consistent aerobic physical activity a couple times a week. That means take a walk or jog around the block, go for a bike ride, or dance to music in your living room. It’s important to de-stress your life if you’re going to properly deal with high blood pressure.

However, there are also natural ways to combat blood pressure that won’t take up your time or drastically change the way you live your life.  Sante Global makes products with a substance called L-Arginine, an essential amino acid. L-Arginine converts to nitric oxide in the body, enhancing blood flow and supporting cardiovascular health.

When you have high blood pressure, the pressure on your arterial walls is intense. Nitric oxide relaxes those walls. Consider getting L-Arginine products from Sante Global, such as soft gels or berry-blend powder, in order to see if they help you or your loved one with blood flow and overall well-being if you (or they) are experiencing high blood pressure.
