3 steps to a healthy heart

Our lifestyle plays an important role in our risk of heart disease but sadly, many people do not quite take it to heart, thinking that heart disease only happens to those who are elderly.…

Do you know that if you but just maintain these three healthy lifestyle habits, you would be preventing nearly 90 percent of heart disease…

So what are the three healthy lifestyle habits?

1.   A healthy diet which include wholegrain cereals, legumes, fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts in your diet and lower your risk of heart disease. Cut down on sugar, salt and processed food…. Eat more oily fish like tuna, sardines or salmon that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and will boost your good cholesterol. Switch from milk chocolate to dark chocolate which is good for your heart... 


And last but not least, add the Nestle Omega Plus into your diet... You can actually manage your cholestrol level with just two glasses of the Nestle Omega Plus a day! Or get the ready to drink ones in those small tetrapaks and just slip it into you handbag or backpack...(my favorite!!)

2.   Being physically active (walking/bicycling ≥40 min/day and exercising ≥1 h/week) It has been said that if you would just walk briskly for 30 minutes a day, you could reduce your risk of heart attack by one third. 


How amazing is that….. you do not really have to do high impact exercise unless you want to… and when you exercise, and watch what you eat, you will also lose weight and maintain a healthy waist circumference (waist circumference <95 37.4="" cm="" inches="" o:p="" or="">

3.   Quit smoking now. You might not know if, but twelve months after quitting, your increased risk of dying from heart disease will be half that of a continuing smoker. And another amazing point would be can you imagine if you just stop smoking, you would have saved a staggering RM4350 for a year without cigarettes (I am just estimating using RM12 per box / per day – a box of ciggies cost more than RM15 nowadays!!!)


Be sure to take the opportunity to join the Nestlé Heart Health Challenge campaign and stand a chance to be surprised with a little something from Nestlé Omega Plus!

All you have to do is take a photo of how you keep your heart healthy and post it on your instagram with the following 3 hashtags:  #SaveAHeart  #NestleOmegaPlus #HeartHealthChallengeMY

So why not make a difference and take charge of your own heart now and inspire the people around you to do the same…
