Welcome to this detailed info-graphic that will show you how everything you need to know about improving your heart health and how much influence this vital organ has over almost every part of our body. The heart beats about 2.5 billion times over the average lifetime, pushing millions of litres of blood to every part of the body. This steady flow carries with it oxygen, fuel, hormones, other compounds, and a host of essential cells. It also helps to remove the waste products of metabolism. We all know how important the heart is for when the heart stops, essential functions fail, some almost instantly. If you ever complete a first aid course and have to do CPR they teach you to never stop applying compressions for even if the person is no longer breathing you can still bring them back to life as long as their heart is still beating. It has the power to influence whether we live or die so it makes perfect sense to look after it as best as possible. Sometimes we forget to appreciate that it is a part of our body that never stops. It runs 24-7, 365 days a year and as a result it requires fuel in the form of nutrition and exercise as well as maintenance in the form of rest and recovery. Given the heart's never-ending workload, it can easily be brought down by a poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and illness caused by neglect to other parts of our body. This info-graphic explains very simply what you need to know about improving not just your heart health but your overall health.
