Heart Health: Vital to a Healthy Body
Understanding Cardiovascular Health
The cardiovascular system is an amazing network designed to provide all of your body’s living cells with nutrients. It also transports waste products away from cells for elimination. The cardiovascular system is powered by the heart, which typically pumps oxygen-rich blood to every part of the body, including itself, 100,000 times a day. Blood travels through thousands of miles of blood vessels so every cell can get what it needs. These days, many people are taking more proactive steps to maintain their cardiovascular health. While the cardiovascular system may be complex, there are many simple steps you can take to support your cardiovascular health every day.

Experts generally recommend supporting your heart with healthy lifestyle choices that include a heart-healthy diet, such as limiting sodium and eating more high-fiber, low-fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans.
