Promoting a Healthy Heart

 Prevention is better than cure, this applies to all however he heart is one of the most precious things. It needs to be maintained at peak condition if one is to feel good, healthy and have a normal life.

One of the most important things to maintain a healthy heart is to understand how it works and what it does, and that however complicated that must be there is simple ways of describing it. Basically the heart aches the blood around the body blood which carries out several tasks one of them is to take oxygen to all parts of the body, so in order to do that the heart must work unstressed and without difficulties, having said that the heart is a muscle and like any other muscles it must exercise, and this is achieved when you exercise yourself, which improves oxygen intake and makes the heart beat faster which is a good exercise for it.

You must not forget that your heart is aided by your veins and they carry the blood pumped by the heart around the body so these too must be maintained in good working order, they like water pipes in a big city and if the water supply is cut who knows what services it may affect, as it could be an hospital or a school etc. The same as with your veins if blood supply is lost somewhere in your body and organ or organs may suffer from blood starvation and therefore oxygen which can/will cause illness, thus the importance of keeping both working well and in harmony.

First miraculous natural product that aids the heart via the blood maintenance is the garlic, simple hum!!!Garlic, or Allium sativum (Latin), is a popular herb for cardiovascular health.
