The heart makes its first beat during the tenth week of an embryo’s life. When it will make the last one depends solely on us. In this article, we will talk about the most efficient ways to make our “engine” work without fail.
With no congenital abnormalities a human heart should work without fail during the whole life. For a heart to be healthy, there are some simple rules that are easy to follow!
Scientists estimate that each heart can make about 3 million beats until it stops forever. It is obvious that the easiest answer for a long and happy life is to teach the heart to work in a steady rhythm. Cardio exercises are an easy and available way to ensure that the engine pumps most efficiently. When used to physical exercise the heart, like any other muscle, can bear any strain with more ease and work in the “red zone” less often. Regular exercise trains the heart to perform optimally even when under extreme physical stress.
The World Health Organization encourages each of us to take a step to a long life. To be exact, 10 000 steps a day! This will protect you from most health problems, cardio diseases included. That’s about 7 km a day. This distance includes all your walking, even what you have covered in the office or on the way home. You should know however that on average each of us walks no more than 3 km a day! The easiest way to follow these numbers is to use a fitness tracker worn on your wrist. There are plenty of gadgets like this available, some will not only count your steps for you but will also give you a reminder if you haven’t moved for a long time.
According to Dr. Gordon Blackburn from Cleveland Clinic, swimming is the easiest and the most effective kind of cardio exercise that strengthens the heart muscle. Besides, this kind of exercise is recommended even to those who have recently had heart surgery. Researchers emphasize that even those who cannot swim should get into the water. For cardiovascular disease prevention you can take classes in aqua aerobics in shallow waters or regularly go walking at a comfortable depth.
15 MINUTE PRACTICE
Do you keep complaining about not having enough time for full time sports classes? Research has proven that only 15 minutes of physical activity is enough to ensure the heart doesn’t malfunction. Find time for a few exercises in the morning or a short practice in the evening. Physical activity reduces the heart muscle inflammation, lowers the levels of bad cholesterol and keeps the vessels elastic.
People tend to take better care of their expensive cars than of their priceless bodies. The problem of modern medicine is a delayed diagnosis of diseases. Those who could be easily treated come to see a doctor too late when a disease (a hear disease for example) has progressed too far and has developed complications. Regular ECG and annual clinical examination is the best way to prevent the development of serious illnesses.
A healthy heart and bad vessels sound absurd. When the vessels are not elastic and blocked, the circulation is impaired, which leads to heart disruption and overall malfunction of the body. Data shows that 60% of people with a heart disease in Russia have a high level of cholesterol. The foremost issue for a healthy lifestyle is to change the diet.
Even slight magnesium deficiency can cause heart disease. Magnesium is involved in many processes in the body: from energy production to vascular and muscular stress and relaxation. Magnesium is a physiological calcium antagonist. When your body suffers from magnesium deficiency, magnesium is replaced by calcium which makes the body muscles 0 the heart muscle too – contract, and does not allow them to relax. An international study has found that in most cases, heart attack patients had 42% less magnesium in the damaged part of the heart than in the unaffected part. Include in your diet foods that contain magnesium. Foods rich in magnesium normally form the so-called medical diet number 10 which doctors prescribe to patients with cardiovascular diseases. This essential element is found in wheat bran and grain, buckwheat and legumes (beans, lentils).
Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids
Include nuts in your diet. They are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the cardiovascular system. It has been proven that they lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of blood clots, and prevent tachycardia attacks. Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in cod, red salmon, sardines, flax seeds and soya beans. To prevent cardio disease, it is enough to take 2 portions of food containing a sufficient amount of the element each week.
Biologically active food supplements
With a good diet food supplements compensate for certain beneficial nutrients and minerals in the body aiming at the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, biologically active food supplements help adapt and change nutrition regimen and its chemical composition, enhance micro circulation and have a strong antioxidant effect.
LC Balance reduces the level of “bad” cholesterol without reducing the “good” one. It also prevents the absorption of cholesterol through the intestines and blocks the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver. Phytosterol extract from purified sea buckthorn oil has high contents of active components and has a unique biological effect. It cleanses the vessels from cholesterol plaque and therefore prevents the development of cardiovascular diseases like atherosclerosis, hypertension, thrombosis, heart attack and stroke. It also improves the quality of blood and facilitates the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.
The basic ingredient of Mega is Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids extracted from fish oil. Another important ingredient is evening primrose oil (oenothera oil) which is a source of Omega-6 polyunsaturated acids. These active agents reduce the level of cholesterol, prevent blood clots and normalize the adrenal glands and gonads. They also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and improve memory and cerebral blood flow.
Extracts of orange fruit and citrus peel are the basic ingredients of this vein tonic; they contain effective bioflavonoids diosmin and hesperidin. They relieve venous congestion, reduce capillary permeability, strengthen the blood vessels, reduce the accumulation of edema in the legs and are beneficial in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency. Extracts of grape pomace, gotu kola and papaya enhance the effect of bioflavonoids and help relieve swelling and pain. You will regain a light walk and forget about swelling and pain in the legs.
Do you know why the French have the lowest records of cardiovascular disease but at the same time they do not refrain from fatty foods? They drink red wine daily which has an antioxidant effect. Food supplement Vinex from Vision acts like the best wine but more efficiently and with no risks because it has no side effects and contains more natural beneficial substances. Each capsule of Vinex is equal to 2 glasses of red wine but it has no alcohol. It helps the heart to perform optimally, the vessel walls to get stronger and more elastic, and causes you to feel confident of good health at any age.
I am impressed with Vision and the vast variety of formulas it produces to harmonize the metabolism and the cardiovascular system. Such dietary supplements of selected natural ingredients greatly benefit the human organism. Eventually, it helps to efficiently prevent diseases.
