Information
Summer is the most prosperous season of yang, but also the period of significant enhancement of human metabolism, at this time, the natural yang is the most fierce, once the excess of yang, the heart is too strong, it is easy to be irritable and angry, thereby reducing the body's immune function and causing various diseases.
 
According to statistics, when the temperature in nature exceeds 33 ° C, the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases will increase significantly.
 
There is a cloud in the Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic: "The fiery heat is summer, and the inside should be in the heart, and the heart is the main blood and the god is hidden." ”
 
Therefore, summer health, do not forget to nourish the heart! The so-called summer to nourish the heart is not simply to prevent cardiovascular events.
 
 
 
Nourish the heart and eat more "red"
 
The theory of health care in Chinese medicine says that "five colors into the five internal organs", red food into the heart, into the blood, can benefit the heart, promote blood circulation.
 
Eating more red foods in summer is very beneficial for protecting the heart and brain.   
 
Tomato
 
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which can lower blood lipid levels, prevent "bad" cholesterol from being oxidized, and help prevent atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
 
Chinese medicine believes that tomatoes have the effect of dispelling heart fire, quenching thirst, stomach digestion, anti-diarrhea and dampness, and are suitable for people with heavy limbs and loss of appetite in summer.
 
It should be reminded that eating tomatoes raw on an empty stomach is easy to cause stomach bloating and stomach pain, and sensitive people can make them into tomato soup to eat.
 
 
Carrot
 
Carrots are known as "little ginseng" because they are extremely nutritious.
 
Quercetin contained in it can increase coronary blood flow and reduce blood lipids; Potassium succinate helps prevent hardening of arteries, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure; Folic acid can reduce the incidence of coronary heart disease.
 
Beetroot
 
Beetroot contains nitrates, which can increase the concentration of nitric oxide in the blood, which in turn promotes vasodilation and plays a role in lowering blood pressure.
 
However, its blood sugar rise rate is faster, and people who are obese or have high blood sugar should eat less.
 
Watermelon
 
Watermelon is the main melon fruit in summer, which has the effect of clearing heat and dispelling heat, eliminating annoyance and thirst, diuresis, and cardiovascular protection.
 
Many people are prone to sweating on high temperature days, appetite decline, fire and long mouth sores, refreshing watermelon is a good choice.
 
Cherry
 
Chinese medicine believes that cherries can quench thirst, and their rich iron content is more commendable, which helps to replenish the heart and nourish the heart, which is very suitable for summer consumption, but those who suffer from constipation, hemorrhoids, and sore throat should eat less.
 
Chinese wolfberry
 
Studies have shown that the polysaccharides in goji berries have the functions of lowering lipids and lowering blood pressure.
 
However, goji berries are hot, eating too much is easy to get on fire, the daily consumption is best controlled in more than a dozen grains, you can directly chew to eat, soak water to drink or boil porridge.
 
 
Red beans
 
Ancient Li Shizhen called red beans "valley of the heart", it can clear the heart fire, but also to replenish the heart, rich in crude fibers help lower blood lipids, lower blood pressure, improve heart function.
 
Sweet potato
 
Sweet potatoes are rich in flavonoids and anthocyanins, which are beneficial to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health.
 
It should be noted that the sweet potato protein content is low, can not completely replace the staple food, eat sweet potatoes with other foods and vegetables.
 
Cultivate good habits
 
Daily "nourishing the heart" In addition to paying attention to less oil and less salt in the diet, eating more red heart-protecting foods, we must also pay attention to these tips:
 
Exercise does not sweat much
 
Exercise to achieve a certain intensity has the effect of preventing diseases, but the intensity cannot be too high.
 
In general, when exercising, the heart rate is maintained at the level of "170-age". (Generally suitable exercise heart rate is "170-age", for example, 50-year-old people, exercise heart rate control at 120 times / minute is appropriate, too fast indicates that the amount of exercise is too large, can not achieve the effect.) 
 
It should be noted that summer sports are best selected in the cooler temperature period, beware of excessive sweating. Because of the summer heat, the human body sweats a lot, and too much sweating can consume sad qi and blood, so that the heart is scattered, and uncomfortable symptoms such as lack of energy, palpitations, and fatigue occur.
 
 
Regular medical check-ups
 
People with abdominal obesity for more than 7 or 8 years, people with diabetes for more than 7 years, people with high blood pressure, people with high blood lipids and people with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases in the family, etc., are all high-risk groups of cardiovascular diseases, and regular physical examinations are required to find problems in time.
 
Eat less cold drinks
 
"The heart is the mother of the spleen", the summer weather is hot, people often eat some raw cold and cool food or drinks to cool off the heat, which is very easy to damage the spleen and stomach, and the function of spleen and stomach transportation is weakened.
 
Weak temper, in Chinese medicine will lead to "son thief mother's qi", resulting in lack of heart qi, suffering from diseases.
 
The spleen and stomach transport disorders will also cause wet turbidity in the body, and the wet turbidity block in the veins will induce chest tightness, chest pain and other symptoms, and severe cases will cause myocardial infarction.
 
Often rub the "heart point"
 
Inner Guan Cave
 
 
It is a strong heart acupuncture point, and it is necessary to rub the Neiguan acupuncture point for at least 2 minutes every day, which can effectively alleviate cardiac dysfunction.
 
Pericardial meridians
 
Rubbing the Yin Pericardium Sutra every day can improve the ability to resist external evils.
 
 
The method of rubbing the pericardial meridian is also very simple, from the elbow socket along the middle of the forearm to the wrist direction slowly slide and knead, from the elbow to the hand, each arm can be kneaded 5 to 10 times a day.
