How can we maintain a healthy heart?

There are three fundamental axes for the heart to work well: eating well, exercising and managing stress. We start with food.

First, eat green, red, or purple foods.

The scientific journal The Lancet published a review of studies led by the WHO.

This concludes that a high-fiber diet reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

On the other hand, maintaining physical exercise in the daily routine helps to lower blood pressure, promotes good blood circulation, and increases good cholesterol (HDL).

It is important not to smoke since the cigarette promotes the acceleration of atherosclerosis.

This disease occurs when the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body (arteries), thicken and support, restricting blood flow to the rest of the organs and tissues.

The consumption of magnesium through food or as a supplement helps reduce stress, which causes diseases of the heart and other organs.

It is also advisable to consume foods with Omega 3 since it has anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant effects, reduces the risk of heart disease, among other benefits.
