The Men’s Secret to a Healthy Life

Maintaining good health doesn’t happen by
accident. It requires work, smart lifestyle choices, and the occasional checkup and tests. Studies have also proven that it is important to take increased care of your health as you age, especially your heart as heart-health is linked to various diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and strokes Eating smart for your heart is one way you can improve your health, starting with foods that are rich in fibre, wholegrains, fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as “good” or unsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. These dietary components decrease inflammation which is how our body reacts to outside threats like toxic chemicals, infection, viruses, stress etc. According to research, when our immune system senses any of these dangers then it starts to respond by activating the proteins which are supposed to protect our tissues and cells. Chronic inflammation is the cause behind most chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and lupus. 

Several recent studies have placed inflammation as the root cause of clogged arteries, heart disease, cancer, stroke and even gum disease.

Signs of Chronic Inflammation include:

  • Fatigue
  • Aches and pains – especially joint pain
  • Depression
  • Digestive problems
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Weight loss resistance
