Heart Health Tips
Weve got the beat: Be good to your heart
It is hard to imagine a more important, harder working muscle than the heart. The heart is like the worlds greatest heavy weight champion of the body. It toils for us day in and day out and it never, ever takes a break. When we work or play hard, our heart is there to support us. Therefore it is imperative to nurture it every day. Remember that if you take good care of your heart it will undoubtedly return the favor. But what are some of the best ways to ensure good heart health? Its always an excellent idea to map out a proactive health plan. This plan should include varying methods such as exercise (aerobic, walking, swimming), eating right, smoking cessation and getting as many vitamins and minerals per day as possible. Be kind to your heart, and it wont let you down.
Listen to your heart: Preventative measures
Heart failure is a chronic condition, meaning that it is usually long-term and tends to gradually become worse. More than 5.7 million Americans are living with heart failure and 670,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, according to the American Heart Association.1 But take heart, there is some good news. This condition can be managed and even thwarted, if there is a steadfast commitment to taking care of your heart and your overall health-every day.

There is a multi-tiered process to ensuring good cardiovascular health. It includes plenty of aerobic exercise, aiming to keep your heart rate between 135 and 165 beats per minute*, which in turn will cause the heart to pump slower while at rest. Eating a properly balanced diet needs to be a priority and should include lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains while remembering to limit intake of high fat foods. It is also advised to drink in moderation and of course not to smoke (or quit promptly if you do). All these methods can aid in building and maintaining a healthy heart.
Have a heart: Take charge of heart health
However we all know that sometimes its hard to fit in all the right foods on any given day. The office vending machine is never filled with carrots and the greasy fast food restaurant is right around the corner and easy to dine at in between meetings. And there is no treadmill in the conference room. Other days, it just seems to be too much of an effort to even go for a walk, perhaps because of low energy. But dont get discouraged. Even on days like this, you can be proactive about your health. There are vitamins and supplements that can fortify your healthy heart every day. Some ideal choices for a daily supplement regime would include Solanovas Super QNolŽ Ubiquinol CoQ10 which helps to strengthen the heart muscle and Omega-GelŽ, to help support vascular circulatory, brain and eye health.

After all, youve got a lot of living to do!
