The Heart/Brain Connection

Most of think of the brain as the organ in charge.

But actually, there are neurons in our heart, the same as our brain. That’s one reason why the heart speeds up when you get excited and slows down when you are relaxed.


And of course blood flow effects how the brain functions. Good heart health is important for good blood circulation. Here are some ways to help your heart function well.


Maintaining a healthy weight.


Aerobic Exercise like brisk walking, swimming, or jogging for at least 30 mins 3-5 times a week.


Eating fish or taking supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids.


Drinking black tea which improves blood vessel health. Healthy blood vessels help improve circulation.


Managing stress.

And if you smoke, decrease the amount or quit altogether.
