Healthy Heart in Women: Healthy Heart Vs Burning Heart!

Healthy heart in women is it, but the benefits therein extend to all and sundry. The young, the elderly; (you really don’t get old when you are equipped with healthy heart!), the rich, the not-so-rich,  (you may argue this out for all you care if I say again that you are potentially rich and not really poor when you are endowed with healthy heart!); whatever category you place yourself, you are not left out. I tell you indeed, just try and listen carefully to the air or to the ground; if you know how to do it, so you can perceive the unmistakable sound of healthy heart raging stronger and stronger each day.                                                                                                                                                                                       
        The reason for this development is not far fetched. In recent times, experts are discovering from various researches that a greater percentage of deaths among mankind are resulting from problems relating to healthy heart. Many professional bodies have also been making clarion calls to all (of us who are still quite lucky to be alive!) to listen, adjust to and adopt life portraying healthy habits, to start gradual practice of healthy activity as well as indulgence in moderate consumption of healthy and nutritious food items. The right time is now because no one knows what happens the next moment.          
        There are various systems of the body operating and performing specific functions towards the enhancement of healthy heart. Some of the systems include: the digestive, nervous, circulatory, excretory and skeletal systems, to mention a few- all largely dependent on the healthy heart to perform their functions adequately. On the other hand, the healthy heart also needs the ‘cooperation’ of the other adjoining organs to be able to perform its functions maximally. Taking a closer look at the digestive system, we all know the vital roles being played by the mouth, esophagus, small intestine, liver, and the other related organs of the body.                                                                                                   
     Digestion actually takes place in the small intestine where the food is broken down and converted into such form that can be absorbed by the intestinal wall into the blood stream which is kept running courtesy of the unrelenting pumping force of the healthy heart. From there, it is transported by the microscopic capillaries which later converge into the portal vein that enters into the liver. At that point, the liver helps in further refining the digested food and stores it in the body for subsequent use. What you are required to know here is how to select easily digestible healthy and nutritious food items that include fresh fruits and vegetables. 
      Women mostly hold the responsibility of choosing food items for the family and thus in the right position to contribute towards enhancing healthy heart in the whole family. Improper functioning of the digestive system could result in that painful feeling known as ‘heart burn’. It could also be caused by excess acidity in the stomach. To overcome it, observe such foods that result in the feeling and avoid them. However, you also need to avoid alcohols, over cooked or fried foods and acidic foods like lemon. Dear women, try and promote healthy heart today!
