Healthier Heart 


            Last week Sunday’s newspaper had an interesting article on knowing your numbers for a healthy heart.  I would like to share with you the information from the “Spry Living” newspaper article.

ü  129 Let your “bad” LDL rise above this number – your heart disease risk climbs.

ü  119/79 The blood pressure reading to aspire to.  Blood pressure represents the force of blood against artery walls- the more force blood exerts the greater your risk for heart disease and stroke.

ü  7 The limit of daily saturated fat intake.

ü  6 The number of teaspoons of sugar women is allotted per day. Men 9.

ü  Less than 150 Where triglycerides should be to keep your heart disease risk down.  (Sweets & alcohol raises this level)

ü  25 Grams of fiber daily

ü  1500 Salt intake.

Therefore, it’s imperative to see a doctor yearly to find out how your body is progressing and to make sure you are in the numbers.  Remember catching an illness early can help jump-start a proper healthy cure.  So learn what foods and natural herbs can help keep your body in range and live a painless and medication free life.
