Heart Disease remains one of the leading causes of death in the UK
Experts say most cases of premature death from heart disease are completely reventable.
So here’s the good news: preventing heart problems, keeping your heart healthy, avoiding heart disease and leading a better lifestyle are largely matters of choice for most of us. And at Herbalife Nutrition, we are doing our part to help our customers – and the public at-large – make those smart choices.
Three Ways to Improve Heart Health
Fortunately, the decisions in front of us are pretty logical and straightforward. Indeed, a healthy heart begins with three simple steps:
- Getting Active – just 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise can dramatically improve your prospects for cardiovascular wellness.
- Achieving and Maintaining a Healthy Weight – if you’re overweight or obese, getting into the habit of shaving off a few pounds can significantly improve your cardiovascular system.
- Eating Healthy – more nutrition, more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-sodium foods, and low-fat dairy, add up to a heart healthy diet.
Obviously, this isn’t rocket science. Yet that doesn’t make any of it easy. It requires shifts in people’s routines and habits, and it demands a level of discipline and focus that many people’s lives, jobs, and family situations may not allow. Still, though, we have to get back to the basics and encourage as many of our friends and neighbours as possible to get on board.
