Do Your Part: Take Care of Your Heart

The Gaspar’s Best Guide to Heart Function and Supplements

Your heart health is central to overall good health. It’s responsible for pumping nutrient-rich blood throughout your body, it supplies oxygen while removing toxins and waste. As the center of your cardiovascular system, it is vitally responsible for just about everything that gives your body life, ranging from the transportation of oxygen to the success of your immune system.

Given the heart’s never-ending workload, it’s a wonder it performs so well, for so long, for so many people. But it can also fail, brought down by a poor diet and lack of exercise, smoking, infection, unlucky genes, and more.

Although many people develop some form of cardiovascular disease as they get older, it isn’t inevitable. A healthy lifestyle, especially when started at a young age, goes a long way to preventing cardiovascular disease. Lifestyle changes and medications can nip heart-harming trends, like high blood pressure or high cholesterol, in the bud before they cause damage. And a variety of medications, operations, and devices can help support the heart if damage occurs.

Signs of heart failure include:
  • Fatigue and weakness.
  • Swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet.
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat.
  • Reduced ability to exercise.
  • Chest Discomfort. It’s the most common sign of heart danger.
  • Nausea, Indigestion, Heartburn, or Stomach Pain.
  • Pain that Spreads to the Arm.
  • You Feel Dizzy or Lightheaded
  • Reduced ability to exercise.
  • Persistent cough or wheezing with white or pink blood-tinged mucus.
  • Swelling of the belly area (abdomen)

If you are experiencing any of the above, you will likely want to make some diet and lifestyle changes immediately. By making smarter lifestyle choices, you can protect your heart and reduce your risk for developing life-threatening conditions. Making these small decisions can have a large impact on the health of your heart and your overall well-being. As always, however, speak with your doctor before taking new supplements or if you suspect that you may have serious health issues.
