Did you know your heart beats around 100,000 times a day? With every beat it works hard to pump blood through your body, around 5 litres in fact1. Our hearts play such an important role in keeping us all alive and well, but sadly heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter (27%) of all deaths in the UK2.
The good news is there are lots of ways that you can help to reduce your risk of heart attacks, stroke and other heart and circulatory diseases. Loving your heart is like any special relationship: a little effort goes a long way. Making a few simple lifestyle changes can really ‘up your game’ when it comes to caring for your heart. Even if you already have a heart condition, small changes can offer big benefits for your heart.
