Heart Health

This World Heart Day, we’re asking Kiwis to take extra good care of their hearts, because we know that healthier hearts mean a longer, healthier life.

In New Zealand more than 175,000 live with heart disease, with one person dying every 90 minutes. Sadly, cardiovascular disease is still New Zealand’s single biggest killer.

Looking after your heart is about staying active, heart-healthy eating, managing stress, getting a good sleep, and keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check.

We want everyone to live long and healthy lives, free of heart disease, so take extra special care of your heart this World Heart Day.

Heart-Healthy Meals

Here are some tips on giving your meals a heart-healthy spin from the Heart Foundation

Heart Foundation Quiz

With the amount of information out there, it can sometimes be hard to know what is true and what isn’t.  Take the Heart Foundation’s fun quiz to find out how much you know when it comes to facts about the heart. You never know – the truth might even shock you!

Knowing your blood pressure numbers can help you live a longer and healthier life. Check yours today at participating Unichem and Life Pharmacies and receive personal advice on what your readings mean.
