Some tips on strengthening your heart

Don’t let the term ”heart failure” scare you. It simply means a weakening of the muscles that control the heart, not a failure to operate. Nonetheless, whatever it’s called, it still means your heart is not in the best shape. There are things you can do to make it stronger. Reduce your intake of salt or use a salt substitute. Salt absorbs water and it makes the body retain it. Water settles in your legs, feet and lungs, forcing the heart to work harder getting blood to those areas. You also gain weight, which increases your risk of heart disease. Learn how much exercise is good for you and get into a regular regimen. Most important of all, get regular medical checkups. Get tests done for your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. There are natural and prescriptive products available to help you maintain a healthy heart. Learn what they are and use them.
