Get heart healthy this Heart Awareness Month with the Laager Rooibos Heart Health Challenge – Witbank News

In South Africa, heart disease remains one of the biggest health threats, with 225 citizens succumbing to the disease every day.

The arrival of Covid-19 means those with underlying heart conditions face a higher risk, which is why this years Heart Awareness Month celebrated in September takes on even more significance.

Laager Rooibos, in conjunction with the Heart & Stroke Foundation of South Africa (HSFSA), are encouraging people to get heart healthy this month with the Laager Rooibos Heart Health Challenge.

HSFSA Nutrition Team Leader, Hayley Cimring note: Heart disease and strokes are currently responsible for one in every five deaths countrywide. Recent studies show that people with a heart condition, vascular disease, or who have suffered a stroke, are at higher risk of complications if they are infected with Covid-19. But the reality is that 80% of heart diseases and strokes can be prevented by simply living a healthy lifestyle, which includes healthy eating.

Laager Rooibos Marketing Manager, Candice Sessions, said that switching out certain bad foods and drinks for good, and adopting a few healthier routines, is all it takes to improve heart health: These lifestyle changes dont require a complete overhaul of daily life, but simply making some healthier choices. After a month, these positive habits become entrenched, and its easier to sustain these changes going forwards.

Partnering with renowned South African dietician, Mbali Mapholi; the team from Laager Rooibos has compiled a list of simple lifestyle changes that will make a big difference to improve heart health this month.
