Alternative Ways to Boost Your Cardiovascular Health

  • Get a pet. Dogs, in particular, have shown to lower your risk of heart disease.
  • Reduce stress. Chronic stress can damage your immune system, increase your risk of high blood pressure, and eventually contribute to heart attacks and strokes.
  • Optimize your sleep. Sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, is strongly linked to heart disease. A good night's rest can protect your heart.
  • Meditate. While research is not clear, there is some evidence that meditation can lower blood pressure.
  • Dental checkups. Many studies have found that gum disease increases your likelihood of having heart disease.
  • Drink tea. Studies show that tea contains potent compounds that lower inflammation, protect the endothelial cells that line the arteries, and positively affect blood lipids.
  • Drink wine, especially red wine. It improves HDL cholesterol. But it should still be limited to one drink a day for women and two for men.
  • Taking a walk in the forest among trees and plants promotes relaxation. Plant compounds circulating in the forest air may also provide health benefits.
