Healthy Heart - Do’s and Don't for ultimate care

Everybody knows the heart is a fist-sized organ that pumps blood throughout your body. But do you know the effective foods to keep the heart healthy?

We all are familiar with the quote “Health is wealth” But just being healthy from the outside is just not enough, internally smooth functioning of the body is equivalently important. The heart is the most important organ in the entire human body as it supplies blood to the entire body. Hence caring for it should be a top priority.

The key to overall good health is having a healthy heart. It circulates nutrient-rich blood throughout your body, provides oxygen, and removes waste and pollutants. If you have a family history of a heart or circulatory disease, you might have a higher risk of developing conditions that can lead to a heart attack or stroke. states “The annual number of deaths from CVD in India is projected to rise from 2.26 million (1990) to 4.77 million (2020) Coronary heart disease prevalence rates in India have been estimated over the past several decades and have ranged from 1.6% to 7.4% in rural populations and from 1% to 13.2% in urban populations.”

“12 Lakh Youngsters Die of Cardiac Arrest Every Year in India.” by So maintaining a healthy heart is important for everyone.

Here are some foods enlisted to make heart healthy:

  • Leafy green vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Fatty fish and fish oil
  • Nuts 
  • Berries
  • Dark chocolate
  • Tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Food made in Olive-oil
  • Green tea
  • Oats

Food alone won't be able to keep your heart healthy if you do keep doing unhealthy practices. So, getting rid of smoking and limiting the intake of alcohol should be the top priority. Foods that are high in salt, sugar, and fat can risk your heart attack chances. Fast food, deep-fried food, candy, red meat, and soda should be avoided.

Additionally, regularly exercising, staying at the required weight (BMI), and taking less stress can significantly improve heart health to a large extent.

The good news is that you can reduce your risk by changing the way you conduct your life. Even if you have a family history of heart disease, you may use prevention to your advantage.
