Heart Health for Valentine’s Day!

Heart Health for Valentine’s Day!
Kevin Cleary

When we think of Valentine's Day images of playful hearts come to mind.  The traditional expression of love on this day is a big red heart with chocolate inside!

As we celebrate this heartfelt season, let's keep our heart health front of mind. Since our hearts are one of (if not the most) important organs in our body we must adopt and maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle. At Health Products For You we have heart-friendly products to assist you on your wellness quest.

Avoiding Heart Issues

Start by being proactive. By the time an issue becomes apparent, it may be serious. Heart health begins with exercise and avoiding foods that negatively affect your body and heart. Your diet should include:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Whole grains
  • Low-fat protein
  • Fiber-rich foods

In adjusting your diet, you should also control portion size to avoid overeating. Limiting salt and unhealthy fats, like trans fats, can help reduce cholesterol levels while managing blood pressure levels. In a nutshell (nuts are great!) eat less, eat healthier, and move more!

While candy and flowers are gift staples. This Valentine's Day let's think out of the box. Showing our loved ones that we care about their health is the greatest gift. Some great ideas for this Valentine’s Day include:

  • myLAB Box at Home Cholesterol and Lipid Test: This at-home test can test cholesterol and triglycerides for heart health. LDL and HDL levels are also reported from this five-minute mail-in test with results in 2-5 days.
  • Vive ECG Monitor: At-home cardiac monitoring is now easy with this handheld device that accurately detects 14 cardiac conditions including arrhythmia, bradycardia, and tachycardia. Use the Vive Precision app for either iOS or Android phones for safe, accurate tracking and data sharing.

  • Creative Health BioSig Mini Insta-Pulse II Handheld Heart Rate Monitor: Checking your heart rate at any time is what this portable heart rate monitor is all about. Simply keep it in your pocket or purse when on the go and easily monitor your heart rate.
