Four of the latest tips on how to take care of your heart

by , 29 May 2015

“Heart problems? Me?” - if that's your reaction when you hear heart-healthy messages, here's a wakeup call:

The fact is, heart disease is more common than you think. And it's fatal. It's also true that preventing heart problems is getting easier.

Below, I've gathered some of the latest tricks for you - all backed by quality research - to help you take care of your heart…

Take care of your ticker by following these new tips
 

#1: Consume lots of dairy

A new study sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute found that, among people who didn’t eat lots of saturated fat, those who consumed more than three daily servings of dairy (milk, yoghurt or chees) had systolic blood pressure (the top number) – almost four points lower than those who ate only half a serving daily.
 
High blood pressure  damages your arteries and can, in turn, increase your risk for heart attacks and stroke. Researchers say that low-fat dairy is the smart choice, because it’s lower in saturated fat.
 

#2: Try out some new moves

Try thirty minutes of yoga or even tai chi (a gentle Chinese martial art that includes sequences of slow, relaxing movement). These exercises can help lower your blood pressure.
 
In one new study, researchers found that after 12 weeks of tai chi, participants showed a decrease in systolic blood pressure of almost 16 points.

#3: Enjoy fruit juice with your meals

Fruit juice isn’t only tasty, it’s wonderful for your health – and heart – too! Pomegranate juice specifically staves off artery hardening. Some studies suggest it may even reverse it. 
 
A recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that pomegranate juice reduced the rate of cholesterol plaque build-up in mice by 30%.
 

#4: Use soy sauce when you cook

A daily dash of dark soy sauce (not light) in marinades, dipping sauces, salad dressings and soups can help fight off heart-damaging substances linked to obesity, smoking and diabetes, according to research from the National University of Singapore. 
 
The tasty sauce has ten times more antioxidants than wine, and it’s perfectly heart-healthy in moderation. But watch out: They often contain a lot of salt, which can raise your blood pressure. Check labels for low-salt versions.
