Keeping your Heart Healthy


You’re never too young - or too old – to take care of your heart. Preventing heart diseases now means making smart choices later that will pay off the rest of your life.

There are many ways we can avoid heart diseases. You can start by changing your key lifestyle areas such as eating, exercising, smoking and drinking and some other factors like stress. Making small changes in your habits can make a real difference to your ticker, show some TLC (Tender Loving Care) moves.

  • Good Choices of Food - Consume potassium rich foods such as dark yellow fruits (banana, nangka, papaya, mango, orange, peaches, lanzones); green leafy vegetables (malunggay, kangkong, pechay, alugbati & camote tops); and root crops (camote, potato, gabi, ube and cassava). Choose lower fat dairy products and poultry.
    You can also eat omega 3 fatty acid foods rich in nutrients like fish (mackerel family fishes, seafood) and fish oil and also vegetable oils like canola, corn olive and soybean oil.
  • Be Physically Active - Aim for 20-30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise a day. Regular walking is also good for you because cardio-vascular exercise strengthens the heart and lungs.
  • Tame your stress levels - If you fail to eat properly due to stress, smoking and drinking too much may increase your risk of a heart attack. Try deep breathing exercises and find time each day to do something you enjoy.

It’s never too early or too late to find out the warning signs. “Take care of your heart, don’t let it fall apart”.
