Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- According to statistics, there are around 600,000 individuals in the United States who die due to heart disease. The condition is considered to be the leading cause of death in the country, and what people commonly suffer from is coronary heart disease.
The American Heart Association recommends the ideal diet and lifestyle changes for cardiovascular health. Having a healthy lifestyle and diet have always been considered to be the best weapon in fighting cardiovascular disease.
"For many individuals, doing this can be extremely challenging. However, there are some simple steps that can significantly help sufferers make some dietary and lifestyle changes. These changes can potentially provide them with long-term health benefits," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to the American Heart Association, one of the best ways for sufferers to protect the heart is to simply burn as many calories as they consume. They can do this by knowing the amount of calories they should be eating, and increasing the intensity and amount of their physical activity. Engaging in physical activities can significantly help sufferers lose weight; one example is engaging in 40 minutes of aerobic exercise three to four times a week.
Experts also suggest that people consume a variety of foods that are loaded with nutrients. Nutrient-rich foods often contain fiber, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, while remaining low in calories. Eating plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, is one secret to maintaining a healthy weight and controlling cholesterol and blood sugar.
"There are many food varieties that sufferers can choose, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, poultry, fish and nuts. It is similarly important that they limit their intake of red meat and other foods and beverages that are sugary," added O'Sullivan.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the American Heart Association has been suggesting eating plans and diets, such as Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH). These diets can significantly help sufferers make healthy food preferences and improve their overall heart health.
Recent research also revealed that eating fish that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids at least twice each week can significantly help individuals lower their risk of death from heart conditions, such as coronary heart disease.
Today, many people who want to improve their overall heart health not only make dietary and lifestyle changes, but they also take fish oil supplements. These supplements contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which, according to several studies, are potentially beneficial to heart health (http://www.amazon.com/Omega-Fish-Oil-Supplement-Softgels/dp/B00O8NS20K/?ie=UTF8&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=fish+oil).
