The cardiovascular system provides oxygen, proper nutrients, hormones, and various important substances to your body cells. A healthy cardiovascular system is an ultimate powerhouse that keeps you going throughout the day.
But with a desk-bound job, it’s tough to stay healthy these days. A sedentary lifestyle may burden your cardiovascular health resulting in several diseases such as coronary cardiac failure, stroke, heart arrhythmias, valve issues, and heart attack. Several risks that may pave the way to cardiovascular disease include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, stress, and more.

How to turn down the Cardiovascular Risk Factors
- Staying active is the ultimate key to good health. When you are on a regular exercise regime, it can increase your exercise tolerance and you can perform better with every passing day.
- Excessive body weight can be an obvious reason for unwanted cardiovascular diseases. Obesity has a consistent connection with cardiovascular disease. A sudden rise in body fat cells may trigger heart disease followed by ventricular enlargement. Reducing your body weight can help in maintaining good cardiac health.
- Controlling your blood pressure is another convenient way of keeping your cardiovascular disease at bay.
- Modifying your diet can be a good decision for improvement in cardiovascular health. Try to cut down extra sugar, junk food, oily and spicy food from your diet; add leafy green vegetables and fruits instead. Drink a lot of water to stay hydrated.
- Stop alcohol consumption and smoking right now if you want to keep your heart healthy.
- Lack of sleep can cause cardiac diseases. Sleep for at least 7 hours a day and let your muscles rest.
