We become increasingly vulnerable to heart disease as we become older. But regardless of that, there are still many unchangeable factors, such as your surroundings, age, and family history, that can lead to heart disease.
Fortunately, there are some lifestyle adjustments you may make to lower your risk. As a high-quality provider of assisted living in California, we can share with you a few tips on how to help your loved ones lower their risk of heart disease.
- Avoid eating foods that are unhealthy for your heart.Avoid foods that are heavy in sugar, salt, processed carbohydrates, and saturated fat, such as bacon, red meat, soda, and many more.
- Eat well balanced meals which consist of heart-healthy foods. Green leafy vegetables are strong in vitamins and minerals, so we highly recommend that you eat more of them. Some examples of foods that are good for the heart are whole grains, berries, and fatty salmon.
- Maintain a healthy weight and stay active. Regular exercise reduces your chances of acquiring heart disease. Even doing a 30-minute moderate-intensity workout will suffice. Also, do not forget to perform cardiovascular activities from time to time.
