Healthy Heart: Take Care of Your Ticker

June 01, 2013 2 min read

Having a healthy heart is the most important thing to focus on in your day-to-day lifestyle. Your heart is the hardest working muscle in your body, so take care of it. Use these easy day-to-day tips to keep maintain a healthy heart.

Bottoms Up!

A study of 38,000 US men revealed that men who drink 1-2 alcoholic beverages 3 times a week are 32% less likely to have a heart attack compared to heroic drinkers or teetotallers. We recommend opting for anti-oxidant rich red wine.

Make Friends with Mr. Sun

A healthy heart thrives off of vitamin D, which lowers your likelihood of having a heart attack. We’re saying to bake yourself, but get outside, soak up some sun. At least 30 minutes a day of sun exposure is optimal. Cloudy day? Dig into some oily fish instead. Atlantic herring packs 74% of your RDA.

Don’t Hold It!

A Taiwanese study shows that people who try to hold their urine increase their heart rate by 9 bpm and constricts their blood flow by 19%. The result is added stress on your heart.

Viva la France

Next time you’re perusing the aisle of your liquor store looking for a premium vintage, consider picking up a bottle from France. Research shows that French wines contain 4 times more artery protecting enzymes than German ones. Mais oui!

Start Scaling

Blood sugar imbalances contribute to heart disease, but men who took up a 6 week mountain climbing course saw a 43% improvement in their blood sugar levels. Don’t feel like spending your weekend scaling the side of a mountain? Fair enough. Why not hit up a stair climber? Just 4 times a week will get results.
