As one of the main organs in your body, it has incredibly important functions like:
- Pumping oxygenated blood
- Providing cells with major nutrients
- Removing waste products from the metabolism through the excretory organs for disposal
- Protecting against diseases and infections
These, among others. Now you probably want to know how to stay safe and healthy, right? Well here’s 5 ways to do it:
FOOD is Key
Healthy eating for a healthy heart is a pattern. We should not focus on one type of food or nutrient, but rather on what we eat day by day.
- Fruits and vegetables
A diet with a variety of fruit and vegetables is linked to healthier hearts and a lower risk of heart disease.
- Swap to wholegrain
Wholegrain cereals have more nutrients like dietary fiber, vitamins B, vitamins E, and healthy fats.
- Make healthy fat choices
The best fats to include in your diet are OMEGA 3, 6 and 9. Of course you can have all 3 in 1 with our OMEGA 369 pills, which have the perfect amount of fatty acids that your heart and other organs need to work properly. It also helps to eat chocolate!
