      Fat around the belly is a risk factor for heart disease. Research mentions in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology that excess belly fat can lead to higher blood pressure and unhealthy blood lipid levels.

      Beans are rich in soluble fiber and this reduces your level of low-density lipoprotein which is commonly known as “bad Cholesterol.” You can also go in for other rich sources of soluble fiber such as oats, barley, apples, pears, and avocados.

      Laugh

      Laughter is good for your heart.  You will be surprised to know that this will lower stress hormones, bring down inflammation in your arteries, and increase the levels of high-density lipoprotein (HLD), or “good cholesterol.”
