A Healthy Lifestyle and Diet Make a Healthy Heart

Plaque build-up in the arteries caused by cholesterol is the most preventable, common factor that can adversely affect your heart health.  Adopting a healthy diet full of fiber and a more active lifestyle are your best weapons against poor heart health. A few simple changes such as exercising, not smoking, and eating healthier food can make a big, lasting impact.

To Enhance Heart Health, EAT:

Exercise: Get at least 30 minutes of exercise, at least five days each week. Try brisk walking when out with your dog or parking far away at the mall.

Avoid smoking: If you smoke, quit; if you don’t smoke, avoid second-hand smoke.

Try healthier foods: Enjoy a diet rich in fiber-filled foods and low in salt, sugar, and trans fats.

The Mayo Clinic recommends eating these foods for a heart-healthy diet:

  • Oatmeal
  • Fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna
  • Walnuts, almonds and other nuts
  • Olive oil
  • Foods with added plant stanols or sterols, like certain granola bars and cereals

 Adding Konsyl psyllium products helps to ensure your diet has sufficient fiber.
