Heart disease is the number one killer in the developed world. Intensive research has shown that a healthy diet and lifestyle, combined with regular exercise, are still your best weapons to fight cardiovascular disease. The heart is the most important muscle in the body, and if it breaks down or conks in – so will you! It is also the hardest working muscle you have, beating on average 60 or 70 times each minute that you are alive
The heart is also subject to loads of abuse which is mostly brought on by ourselves, because of poor eating and lifestyle choices.
In spite of widely-publicised research outcomes, millions of people worldwide are still unaware of the benefits that healthy foods and natural compounds offer to prevent heart disease. You could lay claim to optimal health if you took some simple steps to begin giving your hard-working heart the protection and support it needs.
The silent killer
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, as it is generally known, is a major cause of heart disease. Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against artery walls as it is pumped throughout the body by the heart, providing oxygen and energy to the body organs. If arteries leading to the heart are narrowed or blocked, the heart has to work harder to get the blood flowing and the oxygen out. This leads to hypertension and compromises the entire cardiovascular system, which can potentially lead to organ damage from a lack of oxygen, as well as a heart attack or a stroke, especially if the artery becomes completely blocked by plaque or a blood clot.
Narrowed arteries and high cholesterol can cause all sorts of problems by hindering the blood flow to all parts of the body. This includes the genital areas of both men and women.
Especially impacted by the restricted blood flow are the testes and the penis. The sperm and testosterone are produced in the testes and need a good blood flow to function properly. Fertility and sexual function may be impacted if there is not enough blood flow to keep the production up to speed. The penis needs a strong blood flow to help with achieving and maintaining an erection.
How to help your heart
Here are some simple, but life-saving, things you can do to support your heart.
- Embrace a healthy eating plan, and begin a regular exercise regime. A good, nutrient-rich diet should include a variety of fruit and veggies, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, skinless poultry and fish, lean cuts of red meat, nuts and legumes.
- Limit sugar and refined foods such as rolls, cakes and deep-fried anything!
- Give up smoking, or at least cut down drastically.
- Lose some weight if you are even slightly obese.
- Use alcohol only moderately, and sugar-free mixers if possible.
- Try and cut down on your stress levels by avoiding situations that you know will stress you out.
Stress can be a killer if not controlled or reduced. It is one of the major causes of heart disease which you need to avoid at all costs to keep your sexual health on track.
