How many times have you heard that you need to lead a healthy life? If you’ve been ignoring this advice for a long time, you may now be starting to worry, increasingly, about the health of your heart.
We know there are no magic solutions against cardiovascular diseases, i.e., those that affect the heart or the blood vessels. In fact, everyone has some genetic risks that determine the probability of suffering from a heart disease. Therefore, since you can’t change those risks, it is important to take steps to change the risk factors connected to your way of life.
And you really can do your bit to enjoy a healthy heart for a long time. The answer is simple: follow a diet low in fat and high in omega 3, do regular exercise, stop smoking immediately and avoid salt and, of course, cholesterol. Because if you don’t control it, over time your cholesterol can lead to very serious cardiovascular diseases, like thrombosis, strokes and heart attacks. Another step that can help you a lot is to increase you intake of omega 3 fatty acids. Numerous studies have shown that omega 3 plays an important role in the cardiovascular system, regulating cholesterol levels, provided that you take the recommended dose, and continuously.
As with any problem, the first step is being aware of it. Therefore, it is necessary to have regular blood tests to check your cholesterol levels, especially if you have a family history of this.
