The nutrients that we provide to our body every day with food have a significant impact on its daily work. Disorders that occur in our bodies, various types of pain, diseases, diseases or recurring skin problems, in most cases, are caused by the lack of important elements and minerals in our daily diet.
A healthy diet for the heart - what to choose to make it like a bell?
The heart is our pacemaker, if it fails in any way, many other organs also work improperly. In order for this most important element in our body to fulfil its role, it is necessary to devote some attention and care to make it serve us for many years. Currently there are many supplements on the market that guarantee the improvement of the quality of heart function, of course, with regular use. However, before we start stuffing ourselves with pharmacological agents that contain a lot of chemistry and other compounds, not necessarily healthy for our body, it is worth considering natural supplementation and looking for support in an appropriate diet.
Green, red, white and chocolate?
A diet that supports our heart does not have to be boring, what is more, it can have a positive impact on our whole body. Above all, we must declare war on hard-to-grasp products made from processed ingredients and containing a lot of salt, sugar and saturated fats. Unfortunately, we will not be able to tolerate fast food or sweets in wholesale quantities. However, it is not so bad that we have to give up eating pleasures completely. However, it is necessary to approach the matter rationally and choose healthier alternatives. For example, it is better to eat chocolate with a high content of cocoa solids (preferably above 70-80%) than white chocolate. The ingredients contained in cocoa beans, which are the basis for such a high percentage chocolate, increase pressure, improve mood, and increase body temperature, while the less cocoa pulp, the more artificial fillers are in it, which certainly does not make such a snack a healthy alternative.
It's worth starting to play with food, using fresh, natural ingredients to make tasty and nutritious meals. Due to the fact that we live in a zone where we have very wide access to different kinds of fruit and vegetables, most of them can be grown in our local backyard, so why not use them?
Playing with food that will help our heart and thus our whole body is above all playing with colors. We have huge opportunities to use the whole palette of colors, ranging from yellow (pumpkin, potato, courgette, onion), orange (carrot, pepper), red (meat, preferably beef, tomato, ), green (leek, spinach, parsley, celery, kale, cucumber) or white, such as fish, poultry meat and seafood.
A well-balanced diet will support not only our heart, but will help to keep a slim figure, help in digestive problems, hypertension, diabetes, lower the level of bad cholesterol, allowing us to enjoy health for a long time..
