Fight Heart Disease
Here are some natural, good-sense ways to keep your ticker tickin’ without the use of potentially dangerous prescriptions:
Lose weight if you’re overweight or obese, and then maintain a healthy weight.
Exercise on most, if not all, days of the week for at least 30 minutes.
Eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
Keep sodium intake to 1,500 milligrams a day or lower.
Consume at least 25 grams of soluble fiber a day.
Ask your doctor about supplements to help lower slightly elevated cholesterol.
Learn stress reduction techniques, and let yourself laugh more.
