Heart disease is an umbrella term for all heart diseases: myocardial infarction, also known as myocardial infarction. The common factors are mostly coronary artery occlusion, interruption of blood flow, and local necrosis of the myocardium due to persistent ischemia. According to WHO statistics, an estimated 17.9 million people died of cardiovascular disease in 2016, accounting for 31% of global deaths.
Unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, smoking and drinking can all threaten cardiovascular health. Therefore, more and more people are beginning to try to develop a corresponding health management plan for themselves including controlling their diet, strengthening exercises, quitting smoking and drinking, etc. How can you build a healthy heart for yourself through a proper diet? Here are some eating habits that can help your heart be healthy:
Eat more fiber-rich foods
Make sure you’re getting enough whole grains and other fiber-rich foods as these foods are essential for promoting healthy gut bacteria. Healthy gut bacteria can help to lower cholesterol levels.
Eat less foods high in saturated fat
When choosing foods, consider choosing foods that are high in unsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats instead of saturated fats.
Use less salt
A high-salt diet can lead to high blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. The NHS salt recommendation for adults is no more than 6 grams per day, or one teaspoon.
