Eat three types of cardiovascular disease prevention food

United States, "Reader's Digest Network" recently pointed out, for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, in the diet can be more than adequate intake of three types of food.

More tea

A recent study showed that: compared with people who do not drink tea, once a heart attack, tea and more people (more than a couple of drinks a day) 44% lower mortality rate, amount of reduction in mortality of 28 people drinking tea %. The researchers believe that black tea and green tea called flavonoids, a kind of antioxidants to prevent arterial thrombosis, maintaining blood vessel flexibility.

Eat more fish

Fish contains Ω-3 fatty acids help prevent blood clot formation, lower triglycerides, reduce blood vessel inflammation. One study found that in 16 years time eating fish five or more times per week for women, the incidence of coronary heart disease decreased by 1 / 3 chance of heart attack decreased by 50%. Ω-3 fatty acids rich in fish include: salmon, herring, sardines, tuna.


Vitamin C and E, antioxidants can not easily adhered to the arterial wall cholesterol; folic acid can reduce the body with cardiovascular disease-related, a substance called homocysteine. Vitamin C found in many fruits and vegetables; vitamin E found in peanuts, sunflower seeds, wheat germ and vegetable oils; folic acid found in various green leafy vegetables such as spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce in animal foods such as liver, kidney, milk products, also rich in folic acid.

From cardiovascular disease, lifestyle changes

Into the 21st century, cardiovascular disease has gradually increased as the number one killer of human life threatening. Journalists have heard a doctor feeling that once the onset of some cardiovascular diseases, the rapidly fatal, life does not give any chance, these words were chilling. Therefore, cardiovascular disease, prevention is essential. National experts Professor Hu Dayi, said many people are not dying no money, but from ignorance.

Gao Xiumin Ku, season, Hou Yaowen ... ... All these literary celebrities have died suddenly, shocking and sad that reason, they all died of cardiovascular disease. According to related statistics, cardiovascular disease, the mortality rate far higher than the cancer, has become a health hazard to human life the first killer.

19, the domestic well-known expert on cardiovascular health education expert Professor Hu Dayi came to Luoyang, the reporter in the morning in the River Section of their junior affiliated hospital had an exclusive interview, Professor Hu believes that the idea of establishing health, training health way of life, physical and mental health is very important, reporters will be finishing this interview as to readers.

"Heart" disease and heart disease

Reporter (hereinafter referred to mind): I saw some of your writings, I referred to "heart disease" can lead to heart disease, heart disease can lead to "heart disease", specifically how to understand this "two hearts" concept?

Professor Hu (hereinafter referred to as Hu): where "heart" refers to mental health, heart disease is physical illness. Currently, people are more health conscious, but often overlooked mental health problems.但 with economic development and job market competition becoming increasingly fierce, more and more of the people Chengshou Zhao from work, Xue Xi, all aspects of life, Deng enormous pressure Daozhijiaolv, insomnia, fatigue and other circumstances happening, but it for mental health buried a huge hidden problem has gradually emerged, the most typical diseases in the world depression in the rapid rise in the rankings, second only to heart disease and even become a big disease.

Note: So, psychological stress and mental illness will bring great harm to physical health?

Hu: It can be said, a serious mental illness is induced significant risk factors for physical disease. To return to the question, "heart disease" can lead to heart disease, namely anxiety, depression can induce, aggravate heart disease. Because long-term mental stress may induce myocardial ischemia, and depression are often influenced by emotional factors, things could not get any interest, do not care about good health, even if there is physical disease will not well with the treatment, psychological problems serious harm to physical health treatment.

Heart disease can cause "heart disease", that can cause or aggravate cardiovascular disease, depression, anxiety and other emotions. Acute myocardial infarction, for example, because the disease is often sudden, high mortality rate, when patients with serious medical rescue work attitude and the tension will give patients psychological leave my shadow, little knowledge is more likely in patients with the disease to enhance fear Thus, patients very susceptible to psychological anxiety, depression and other emotions.

Reporter: So, how to enhance mental health training and adjustments?

HU: formation of fast-paced city life often stay up late, eating unhealthy convenience of fast food and other living habits, laws, good lifestyle is essential. If poor sleep, poor appetite, poor physical condition are vulnerable to low mood, causing depression. In the case of conditional acceptance can be more sunlight, ultraviolet light can be more or less appropriate to improve a person's mood, and more physical activity can be unexpected mood to relax.

All aspects of modern pressure, if very easy to "depressing", should check their own values and life goals, recurrent low mood, it may actually do not commensurate with the goals, which would easily lead to depression. No matter how busy, but also the appropriate self-decompression, do the things they like to feel relaxed, not to see anything too heavy, so their break through, "name" and "benefits" relationship, so can be happy, from mental illness.

If the depression is very serious, need to regular hospitals for specialized treatment, with the use of antidepressant drugs, there will be good results.

Disease in old age, onset in young people

Reporter: We know that cardiovascular disease, most patients are elderly, not young people can temporarily do not concern the prevention of these diseases?

Hu: The idea is that a serious misunderstanding. Many people only busy young career, ignoring health problems in age emerging diseases, in fact, the root cause of early planted at a young age. Do not think that young people with stroke and nothing to do with the onset of atherosclerosis in young people, education, disease prevention than young adults to prevent 20 times after the start. So I often say that disease prevention and health awareness to children 4 years of age, to strengthen the culture. Children plasticity, should cultivate a healthy and civilized lifestyle, such as refusing "junk food" and tobacco, to prevent the indulgence computer and television.

A U.S. research institute warned that the old bulbs in front of the TV and computer new young generation grow up, got a great chance of heart disease, if not pay attention to diet and exercise, like fast food and low nutrition junk food, which may lead to health deteriorating, more and more people die from coronary heart disease at a young age.

Pay no attention to rules and nutritionally balanced diet, resulting in the emergence of many obese children, life, the first 10 years of obesity will result in two to three years of age in a variety of pathogenic factors in the blood appeared, such as blood lipid and blood sugar, deposited vessel wall fatty streak formation and development to the 34-year-old, may develop into a myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac infarction, may also be on show for the first incidence of sudden death, there is no opportunity for treatment. Therefore, the prevention of various diseases, should the sooner the better.

In addition, smoking is repugnant pieces of things, it is mankind's heavyweight killer, so this should not have got the disease so that early-onset late-onset illness, and must allow kids to develop away from the tobacco habit .

Paradoxical movement out of Misunderstanding

Reporter: You said that appropriate exercise is conducive to mental and physical health, then prevention of cardiovascular disease, what the best exercise?

Hu: Aerobic exercise is the cornerstone of health, such as fast walking, jogging, swimming, Yangko, and so on. These features are low intensity, rhythmic, uninterrupted, long time, can improve human health importance of cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular function, control high blood pressure, increase blood Zong Liang, increase bone density, prevent osteoporosis to reduce excess body fat, improve mental status, increased compression capability. Therefore, to find a suitable aerobic exercise and develop plans to adhere to exercise, heart and soul of the health boost.

Reporter: There are many benefits of exercise, more and more people are now starting to focus on exercise, exercise common point of view of ordinary people the error of what?

Hu: Many people think that the bigger the better exercise intensity, this is the wrong point of view. In general, the 100 m race and so time is short, intensive campaign of anaerobic metabolism, can not effectively improve the human cardiovascular system, but will greatly increase chances of getting hurt. If students with poor or suffering from high blood pressure people to do such a campaign could also lead to disease and accidents at the same time, excessive exercise is not conducive to weight loss, because body fat reduction, more crucial is the duration of exercise. Fitness perseverance, not speed.

Morning and learn well than the evening, this view is incorrect. Morning person's blood pressure high blood cohesion high thrombosis risk also increased, is the high incidence of heart disease, the elderly and patients with cardiovascular disease, a better choice evening practice, but obese people choose Morning better. Therefore to be treated differently.

The most dangerous form of the error view is: that physical exercise to overcome the physical discomfort and pain, pain will be effective. Remember, if in motion dizziness, chest tightness, chest pain, shortness of breath or fatigue, should immediately suspend campaign, especially the elderly, should go to hospital for treatment, to guard against accidents, resulting in regret.

Stop the movement, make fat, many people in favor of this view. In fact, the key to fat calories than the calories consumed, as long as the master of both balance and attention to diet and nutrition with, this situation could be avoided.

There are a lot of fat people think that as long as no sick, do not have to exercise to lose weight, this is a misconception. Obesity diabetes, cardiovascular disease, the risk of fatty liver were 3 times the common people, 2 to 3 times and 7 times, if not early diet, enhance aerobic exercise, and other diseases have occurred too late to regret .

Prevention of cardiovascular disease should focus on key

Reporter: You said that the most fundamental of cardiovascular disease prevention, as we have from all perspectives, the prevention of such diseases, then the prevention of cardiovascular disease, the most important thing is what?

Hu: prevention of cardiovascular disease, the most important thing is good blood pressure, blood fat, stay away from tobacco.

People with high blood pressure, heart beats, it takes more effort to pump the blood into the vascular, cardiac overload work long hours will lead to cardiac hypertrophy and reducing efficiency, the last to failure. And high blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, kidney and eye damage, do not control blood pressure in hypertensive patients, coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke risk is multiplied to increase. Most high blood pressure need to diet, exercise and drug combination therapy. Note that eating less salt, eat eight full, balanced nutrition, more exercise, and to support drug treatment needs to be noted that a process of drug buck, You Shishu weeks can best be used, so do not Guodu frequent Genghuanyisheng and drugs.

Dyslipidemia intervention is primary prevention of myocardial infarction in the top priority. Is the blood lipid cholesterol, triglycerides and lipids in general, high cholesterol, will significantly increase the risk of suffering from cardiovascular disease, especially coronary heart disease risk of myocardial infarction. Dyslipidemia in patients with attention usually eat fruits and vegetables, cereal grains, limiting high-calorie, low nutrition and salt, alcohol intake, limit fat, high cholesterol and high yolk fatty food intake, in addition to the with drug treatment.

Let me say smoking. If a person has coronary heart disease genetic predisposition, so non-smokers 60 years of age may be coronary heart disease, smoking may be sick if earlier age to 40 years old, smoking makes the disease much earlier time. Myocardial infarction patients was about 10% in mortality, smoking can increase mortality rates several times, and passive smoking to smokers of wives and children suffering from cardiovascular disease, the risk of death increased by 2 times, so quit without delay, the sooner the better. In the smoking cessation process may take part in outdoor sports, through a busy shift their attention more to allow smoking in public places, take a deep breath to relieve stress, quit smoking and not smoking in early multi-friend contacts, and so on. Develop healthy habits to prevent flooding, from illness distress.

Taboo in hypertensive patients

Recent studies have found that fatty acids affect not only lipids, but also have an impact on blood pressure, especially significant effect on blood pressure in hypertensive patients.

Saturated fatty acids in the diet in countries with high intake (such as Finland and the United States), have proven that the total content of dietary fat and reduce saturated fatty acids, unsaturated fatty acids increased, so the average population blood pressure fell about 1.1kpa (8mmHg), blood pressure normal and light hypertension were significantly decreased blood pressure, hypertension, blood pressure decreased more significantly. In China, Zhoushan, Zhejiang fishermen found lower blood pressure in fishermen fish-based diet, fish rich in long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which may maintain a lower blood pressure in fishermen, one of the reasons.

Animal fats contain more saturated fatty acids, while plant fat with higher levels of unsaturated fatty acids. China's current small animal food, edible oil with vegetable oil-based, and thus a lower dietary saturated fatty acids, unsaturated fatty acids higher prevalence of hypertension in China than in Western countries, this may be the traditional Chinese diet on blood pressure protective effect of one of the factors. It is noteworthy that in recent years as China gradually improve people's living standards, dietary fat and animal fat content increased, the prevalence of hypertension has increased in recent years.

Therefore, patients with hypertension should eat with unsaturated fatty acids in plant and fish, eat or do not eat animal fat.

Prevention of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease eat onion

Onion dishes in Europe and the United States known as the "Queen", has high medicinal value, according to modern medical research shows that the performance of its medicinal value in:

Blood pressure lowering effect
Onion contains prostaglandins in reducing blood pressure, prevent thrombosis, protect the brain and heart and other major organs have an important role in life. So far, scientists have discovered, only the onion is the vegetable with prostaglandins. Onion in Japan has become a blood pressure of hypertension patients eager to eat food. Japanese scholars believe that after years of research: long-term stability of blood pressure can eat onion, reduce blood vessel fragility, human arteries have a good protection.

Anti-arteriosclerosis, reduce thrombosis
Onions contain flavonoids, which is the general term for a class of plant pigments, known as the "Quercetin", which protects the heart performance is particularly great. University of Wisconsin medical professor Dr. John • Folz, it is an antioxidant. Can prevent oxygen and low-density lipoproteins (if a combination of both, attached to the vessel wall, impeding blood flow). In addition, it can reduce the platelet viscosity. Tests have shown that eating onions, the platelet viscosity can be reduced 34%. Long-term eating onions, prevent atherosclerosis, reduce thrombosis. Onions have cleared the role of intravascular clot, onion onions contained abnormal blood coagulation factors can reduce the risk, lower blood cholesterol, prevent thrombosis, which can be used to control atherosclerosis and thrombosis.

Lower blood lipids
Onion almost no fat, it contains two rare propyl disulfide, and soluble fibrin can activate the activity of blood components. These substances are strong vasodilator, can reduce the peripheral vascular and coronary artery resistance and confrontation in vivo role of catecholamines and other pressor substances.

Containing selenium
Selenium is an antioxidant, and its special role is to make the body produce a lot of glutathione. The physiological function of glutathione is the oxygen for cell respiration, high concentrations of glutathione, would significantly reduce the incidence of cancer, it is also anti-cancer food onion.

If every day to eat 50-100 grams of onion on blood pressure, maintaining normal blood lipids can play a good role, it is recommended in patients with cardiovascular try.

Milk and dairy products are the most effective relief food

Many people know that low-salt diet to hypertensive patients, but few people know, add enough calcium and potassium can reduce blood pressure in hypertensive patients.

Because of increased calcium intake, can make peripheral expansion helps to reduce peripheral vascular resistance. Calcium also diuretic effect; potassium can prevent high blood pressure caused by salt intake, high blood pressure on the light more visible role in blood pressure, increased potassium intake because of help of sodium excretion, therefore, calcium and complement K has a step-down role.

Most effective, the most common and traditional calcium than milk and dairy food, such food is not only rich in calcium, but also rich in other minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin D, can promote calcium absorption and use. As is often accompanied by obesity, hypertension or high blood lipids, therefore, best to drink skim milk hypertension, thus reducing the fat, especially saturated fat intake. Some of the original calcium content of milk on the basis of artificially added calcium, made of high calcium milk, calcium will be a little more, need calcium supplementation can drink this milk. Yogurt is also a very good class of calcium food, it not only calcium, but there are bacteria which can regulate bowel function, suitable for all kinds of people, especially the elderly.

For those who do not like to drink milk or milk intolerant people can eat more of some alternative foods, such as oysters, seaweed and other seaweed, cabbage, cauliflower, kohlrabi, radish, cabbage, Chinese cabbage and other vegetables. Bone soup can also provide the human body needs calcium, but some of the more stress is first necessary to pigs, fish or chicken bones broken, into the water, and vinegar, simmer with the fire until the bones become soft, that they containing calcium have all been dissolved into the soup, and then most of the vinegar has also evaporated. This soup is similar to the calcium content of milk, you can use this soup instead of water or other cooking soup to cook, or cook. The common method of using the bones stew soup calcium is relatively low, can not meet the needs of the human body. Many foods are rich in potassium, in particular, the vast majority of fresh fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, etc., but if accompanied by hypertension and diabetes, we must control the high sugar content of food intake, while the fungus, kelp, seaweed, also rich in potassium, is more suitable for consumption in patients with hypertension and diabetes.

Dark chocolate - cardiovascular protection of God

Chocolate is one food everyone likes. The entrance to the sweet, nutritious and versatile. In general, the main ingredient of chocolate is cocoa fat. Cocoa beans in terms of fat content, to dark chocolate for the top grade, while milk chocolate, white chocolate and chocolate sandwich, followed slightly. In fact, dark chocolate has a high nutritional value in addition, there are some interesting health care.

First of all, dark chocolate rich in flavonoids and flavonoid "cocoa polyphenol", a composition with antioxidant activity. Polyphenol content of more taste more bitter. Polyphenols can promote the body to produce nitric oxide, which enables the heart, brain blood vessels to dilate, thereby reducing vascular resistance, lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation and can increase the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular flow. In general, oral 7 g dark chocolate can lower systolic blood pressure of about 2.9mmHg, diastolic blood pressure decreased approximately 1.9mmHg. In contrast, other types of chocolate such role is less clear.

Secondly, the role of dark chocolate has a puzzle, can improve memory, prevent elderly amnesia. It also can increase the glycogen, increase energy reserves, anti-fatigue. In addition, dark chocolate contains tannins can inhibit plaque, with anti-caries effect. Dark chocolate is rich in magnesium, this element has a sedative, antidepressant effect.

Although chocolate has a good health effect, however, can not eat at any time, consumption should be aware of the following during the two issues.

First, dark chocolate and milk should not be the same drink. Because chocolate contains oxalate, easy and milk in the formation of calcium oxalate and calcium binding emissions from the urine, thereby reducing the body's intake of calcium.

Second, women with migraines do not greedy chocolate. Because it contains serotonin can induce migraine attacks.

The results show that: vinegar can lower blood pressure

Vinegar can be considered as the most healthy condiments, eating properly can not only beauty, weight loss, but also can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, stroke and other diseases. For hypertensive patients, the table may wish to set the regular vinegar PICKLES, Vinegar dish.

Osaka University of Foreign Studies Health Management Center has conducted an experiment, researchers gave a daily consumption of the composition in hypertensive patients with 15-30 ml of vinegar drinks. After 8 weeks, found that blood pressure in patients than in the other group of patients not taking vinegar drink a certain degree of decline in blood pressure.

Therefore, patients with normal blood pressure should eat more vinegar. Vinegar mixed with stinging head, hot and sour Guatiao, Vinegar potato silk, motorcoach, all the delicious dishes suitable for patients with hypertension. Even people without hypertension, the appropriate cooking time add a little vinegar can not only increase the appetite, help digestion, but can soften blood vessel, to prevent deposition of impurities within the blood vessels to prevent hypertension.

In addition, the now popular fruit vinegar is also good for health drinks hypertensive patients, its taste is more gentle than the vinegar flavor, and rich in minerals, potassium, helps to flush out excess sodium, long-term drinking can take the to the auxiliary step-down effect.
