Everyone knows that a healthy heart is essential to a long life. Here are a few tips to keep that ticker up and running.
Avoid blood clots by drinking lots of water. Drink at least five 8 ounce glasses of water daily and your chance of having a heart attack will drop by 50%. Water thins the blood to make things run more smoothly.
Strengthen your heart muscle. Making love a few times a week gives your heart the exercise it needs to stay healthy, slashing your risk by 50%.
