Heart diseases are the primary cause of death in India and around the world. Almost a quarter of all deaths in the country are due to heart disorders. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study of 2016, nearly 1.7 million Indians died that year because of heart disorders. This is alarming and needs awareness like most of the heart disorders can be controlled by following a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The heart is a vital organ of our body whose health is essential for a healthy life. The right diet and exercise routine are a must to keep the heart healthy. But if a person continuously ignores their health and keeps following an unhealthy lifestyle, there will be an increased risk of developing health problems such as obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, etc. These are called lifestyle disorders and can cause multiple heart diseases and also increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

How to keep the heart healthy

After reading the above, the first query that might come to mind is: “How does one keep the heart healthy?” Well, the answer to this can be described in a few words: “Follow a healthy diet and lifestyle”. This is the simplest way to maintain heart health and keep diseases at bay.

Every individual should follow a healthy, balanced diet that is low in fat and sugar and high in fiber, with plenty of fruits and vegetables (five portions in a day). Cutting down on salt, quitting smoking, and doing regular exercise are all beneficial for heart health. Read the label on food and drink packaging to see how many calories and how much fat, salt, and sugar the product contains.

One should not forget to take Omega 3 as its consumption can reduce the risk of cardiac death. The body cannot make Omega 3 by itself, so it needs to be ingested through the diet or via supplements.
