The American heart has become an almost superhuman machine.
Our bodies are designed to sustain us for centuries, from the earliest times of agriculture to the present.
And yet, as we age, our hearts become more efficient, allowing us to work longer, play more, and eat more.
And when we die, our bodies are going to suffer the consequences.
The American Heart Association (AHA) says we are in danger of losing a generation of Americans.
This is bad news.
The AHA has released its new guidelines to reduce heart attacks and strokes in America, which we can read in full below.
Exercise in moderation.
Exercise is good for you, but it is also good for your heart.
A healthy heart requires regular exercise to strengthen and repair damaged tissue.
But it’s also important to do it with care.
You should exercise at least once a week to help prevent the buildup of plaque in your arteries.
Avoid sports that involve heavy lifting and can damage your heart and blood vessels.
Avoid strenuous activities that can damage the arteries, such as jumping rope, or activities that increase your risk of heart attacks or strokes.
You can also reduce your risk by reducing your activity level.
Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol levels low.
Low blood pressure is a risk factor for heart disease.
And low cholesterol can lead to heart disease and stroke.
The goal of the AHA guidelines is to lower your blood sugar levels to 5 percent or less and your triglycerides levels to less than 20 percent.
Limit caffeine consumption.
Caffeine is a stimulant, which is why people who have low blood pressure or cholesterol levels may find that drinking coffee, tea, or a caffeinated beverage may help them sleep better, think better, or concentrate more.
Catechin, the compound found in coffee, is a major player in your body that promotes your metabolism.
In addition to its health benefits, it’s good for the brain, too.
Catechins are found in many foods and beverages, including some processed foods, like coffee, sodas, energy drinks, sports drinks, and energy snacks.
They’re found in fruits and vegetables and in dairy products.
So don’t worry about caffeine.
It’s not addictive.
Eat foods with omega-3 fatty acids, like fish, avocados, and nuts.
Omega-3s are a group of essential fatty acids found in salmon, flax, flours, nuts, and seeds.
The amount of omega-6 fatty acids that your body needs to function optimally depends on your omega-4 intake.
Eating foods high in omega-7 fatty acids like flaxseeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, hemp, walnuts, and sesame seeds, as well as fish, salmon, walrus, and wild salmon, will help your body get the necessary omega-5s.
Keep a healthy weight.
It takes an average of 6 to 8 months to lose a pound, but if you don’t follow these tips, you may lose another pound or two in a matter of months.
The body naturally loses weight in the middle of your adult life.
If you’re overweight, you have more chance of developing obesity and heart disease later in life.
In the ABA’s guidelines, the average weight loss is between 6 and 10 pounds.
If your body weight is between 5 and 7 pounds, you should have a low risk of developing heart disease or stroke.
And if you weigh less than 5 pounds, the risk is about the same.
In any event, the American Heart Foundation recommends that you do not start a new diet or exercise regimen until your body is healthy and you’re in good physical shape.
And it says that you should follow the guidelines if you have a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart failure.
