Keeping your heart healthy

Keeping your heart healthy

  1. Saturated fat affects blood cholesterol levels, so try to eat less full-fat dairy products, cakes, cookies, pastries and burgers. Replace these with monosaturated fats such as olive oil.

  2. Reducing salt intake can help reduce blood pressure. The recommended level is 6g a day for an adult.

  3. Make exercise a regular part of your life. Each day, do at least 30 minutes of physical activity that raises your heartbeat.

  4. Too much fat, especially around the abdomen or waist area, increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. So cut down abdominal fat.

  5. Maintaining a healthy weight helps you reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
