Leave a comment

Your heart has a big job to do — and a healthy heart plays a huge role in your overall health. “A healthy heart and cardiovascular system is at the center of well-being,” says Karol E. Watson, MD, associate professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine and co-director, UCLA Center for Cholesterol and Lipid Management Office in Los Angeles.

“The heart pumps blood through your vessels to all your vital organs, including your brain, so chronic heart or blood vessel disease can lead to not only stroke and heart attack, but depression and decreased brain function,” adds Dr. Watson. Here are eight steps you can take starting right now to prevent heart disease and maintain a healthy heart.
