Don’t Let Heart Disease Slow You Down (Heart Health)
If you have heart disease, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should avoid physical activity. In fact, most people with heart disease and those who are at high risk of developing heart disease can benefit from regular light-to-moderate exercise.
Regular physical activity may help you by:
Lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol level
Raising HDL (“good”) cholesterol level
Lowering blood pressure
Lowering triglyceride levels
Reducing excess weight
Improving the fitness of your heart and lungs.
If you have heart disease, talk with your doctor before starting an activity to be sure you are following a safe program that works for you.
