Living a long, healthy life with high cholesterol or high blood pressure is easier than you think. There are simple things you can do to reduce your risk for heart disease and help your heart be healthy and strong — including eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate, and adding some heart-healthy supplements to your diet.
Studies show there are a number of nutrients that contribute to a healthy heart — try adding fish oil, vitamin E, CoQ10 or garlic to your diet. Learn more about these proactive approaches for heart health in the Vitamin Guide. (Always remember to talk with your doctor before taking supplements, as different people have different nutritional needs.)
Even healthy people can benefit from taking a multivitamin, and it’s even more important if you’re trying to reduce your risk for heart disease. Ensure you’re getting the nutrients and minerals you need by taking a daily multivitamin formulated for heart health.
The letter vitamins, from vitamin A to zinc, all work together to keep your heart healthy and strong. In addition to a multivitamin, consider adding vitamins B12, D and E to your diet since they’re critical for protecting your heart.
An important element of managing your heart health is keeping track of your blood pressure. Your doctor may recommend that you have a blood pressure monitor at home for regular use, saving you from making office visits for routine diagnostics.
One of the healthiest things you can do for your heart is get regular aerobic exercise, like walking. Having the right shoes will help your comfort, posture and stamina. A pedometer clipped to your waistband will help track how far you’ve walked each day.
Controlling your weight can help keep your heart healthy and strong. The best way to monitor your weight and help you achieve goals is by owning an accurate, easy-to-read scale. From simple, spring-based to scales that track your results over time, look for a scale that best suits your needs.
Keep track of your heart rate throughout the day, and especially when exercising, by using a heart rate monitor on your wrist (looks and functions similar to a watch). Depending on your needs, you can choose from simple monitors that just measure heart rate, to advance models that keep a history of readings and track other data like calories burned, and your average and maximum heart rates.
Consult with your doctor about prescription drugs used to help manage heart-related issues such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since it can be both costly and time-consuming to keep your prescriptions filled, be sure to look into services like auto refills and free home delivery.
