"Heart-Healthy Habits for a Stronger, Healthier You"

A healthy heart is the main source of your strength!

February celebrates Valentine's Day and National Heart Month. This month is designed to allow us to focus on matters of the heart. Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death in women, killing seven times more women than breast cancer.

Your heart works tirelessly, beating 100,000 times a day and pumping thousands of litres of blood throughout your body. However, we often overlook the needs of our hearts and fail to realize there are simple and effective ways to improve heart health.

Diet may have the greatest impact on supporting a healthy heart. We can show love to our hearts by making healthy food choices. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and omega 3-rich fish. Your heart loves all of these choices.

What your heart dislikes are foods that contain refined sugars, carbohydrates, fats, and other highly processed ingredients. These are full of toxins that can damage the heart.
