Healthy Heart - How to Maintain A Healthy Heart

Maintaining a healthy heart is a top priority for many people. Heart disease is one of the top killers in America, so no wonder everyone is conscientious about a healthy heart.

Heart disease is caused by narrowing of the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries carry blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the heart. When these arteries get clogged by cholesterol and fat deposits, you have a tough time getting blood to and from the heart. Hence its important to improve your lifestyle and diet for a healthy heart.

There are many factors which affect a healthy heart, and these include your age, genes, lifestyle, diet, among many other factors. Some of these factors you cannot control, but there are many factors which you could control to improve your heart's health condition.

Some healthy heart risk factors you have no control of:

Your age: as you get older, you have higher chances of having heart problems.

Your gender: men has a higher chance of having heart problems than women.

Your genes: your genes predetermine your level of risk for heart disease. If your family has a history of heart problems, you're at a higher risk as well.

Despite these factors which you can't control that affects your heart's health condition, there a many factors which you do and can control to achieve a healthy heart.

Heart Healthy Diet - your diet is a huge contributing factor to determining whether you have a healthy heart. Eat a lot of fattening, unhealthy food and little vegetables and grains, you're guaranteed to be affected by heart problems. Eating healthy is the first step you should take to maintaining a healthy heart, and overall personal health. Here's an excellent resource to get started. Lowering your meat intake also helps.

Obesity - overweight individuals are at higher risks for heart related problems. All these factors are related to one another. You can dramatically improve your health, weight, and healthy heart if you have a healthy lifestyle, and exercise regularly.

Smoking - did you now that smoking increases your risk for heart disease by 400%? It's one of the 'easier' factors to control - just quit. But then it's never that easy. Just think this way, you can save a few bucks, and live longer. :)

Stress - having too much stress affects your health in many ways, not just your heart. Controlling and effectively handling stress can improve a healthy heart. Learn to relax, and regular exercising can help you reduce stress.

High blood pressure - having high blood pressure increases your risk of heart disease. Consult your doctor about high blood pressure.

So you see, a lot of these factors affecting your heart's health is in your direct control. You CAN have a HEALTHY HEART by keeping these factors in mind, and working to control these factors. That's why I've prepared all this health info to help you. :)
