Strong social integration builds a healthy heart

Feb 05, 2015
It is evident that having a healthy social circle is not just good for your social standing, but apparently it is also good for your heart. Studies show having a few friends, lack of family closeness as well as poor social support reduces the quality of life. This leads to depression in men and women as well as increased risk of developing cardiac health diseases. People with friends and family have a companionship network that offers help, advice, information, emotional support as well as material and financial support when needed. This support has a very powerful effect on the overall health of a person, especially after an illness; improving their chance of recovery. So, bank on the values of love and friendship for a healthy heart.
