Heart Disease Prevention

Heart disease is one of the top killers of men and women in the United States. Due to poor diets and lack of exercise, we are seeing more and more cases of this condition every year.

Heart disease can lead to heart attack, stroke, organ damage, and much more. However, there are simple changes anyone can make in order to prevent this from developing at all. If you are interested in heart disease prevention, then here is information you need to know.

The Tips

To begin with, let’s talk about some tips and tricks to lower your risk of heart disease. These small changes will make a big difference for your wellbeing.


  • Avoid sugar. People don’t realize how bad sugar actually is for them. Sugar causes insulin spikes, which contribute to inflammation and oxidative damage. Both of these things will contribute to heart disease. Sugars include refined sugar, white bread, and pasta.
  • Get active. Even exercising for half an hour five days a week can assist in heart health noticeably.
  • Lose weight. If you are overweight, then body fat being stored in the body causes inflammation and oxidative stress as well. This, again, will contribute to heart disease.
  • Stop smoking. Smoking does damage throughout the body, not just in the lungs. It causes arteries and veins to narrow extensively and leads to inflammation too. This can have a big impact on the heart.
  • Avoid industrial vegetable oils. They are full of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which can promote inflammation and oxidative damage.

In addition to following through with these heart-healthy tips, you can also turn to something else very simple to prevent heart disease.
