Heart Care

Magnesium May Help Control Blood Pressure
A healthy diet is a cornerstone of good health. And research has found another reason why: An important mineral may help keep blood pressure at normal levels.

‘Silent’ Heart Attacks Are Common
Up to half of all heart attacks may not have the typical symptoms of crushing chest pain, shortness of breath, and cold sweats. Instead, they may be “silent,” researchers say.

Caffeine and Heart Rhythm: Moderation May Be OK
Having that morning cup of coffee probably won’t trigger heart rhythm problems, a new study says. That goes for tea and chocolate, as well.

Too Much Salt Still an Issue in U.S. Diets
It’s better for your health if you cut back on the amount of salt in your diet. That’s been the advice from health experts for a number of years, but the message apparently hasn’t gotten through, the CDC says.

Keep Your Heart Healthy for Brain Health
Recent research suggests that unhealthy heart habits may affect your brain, too. This is true no matter what your age.

High Blood Pressure Still a Major Killer
In a recent study, researchers found that death rates from high blood pressure rose by 23%. But those from all other causes dropped by 21%.

Do You Need That Heart Test?
A heart attack can sometimes be the first sign that you have heart disease. That frightening fact makes early detection important. Certain tests may help to diagnose the condition. But if you are at low risk for or have no symptoms of heart disease, experts continue to advise against such screenings.

Can Yoga Help Your Heart?
Despite its popularity, yoga is no exercise fad. The practice has been around for thousands of years. Poses like Downward-Facing Dog and Lotus speak to a balance between the body and mind. Many people who do yoga believe it promotes better health. This perk may even extend to the heart, suggests a recent review.

Americans Are Still Eating Too Many Trans Fats
A slice of apple pie, a tub of popcorn, a bag of cookies. Ever wonder what makes these tempting foods so bad for you? It may well be the trans fatty acids, or trans fats, hiding inside. These dietary fats can seriously harm your heart. The good news: Americans are eating less of them overall. But we’re still eating too many, according to recent research.

Better Heart Health No Matter What Your Age
Your heart is one of the hardest working muscles in your body. It’s constantly pumping blood. Heart disease can make it tough for your heart to do this job. Fortunately, research shows making healthy lifestyle changes—even later in life—may stop and actually reverse heart damage.
