Work your heart out

Did you know that your heart health affects your kidney health? As the heart pumps blood throughout the body, kidneys remove waste and toxins from it and help to regulate blood pressure. Keeping your heart healthy can also help to keep your kidneys in tip-top condition!

Aerobic exercise gets your heart pumping, which improves circulation and lowers blood pressure and heart rate. Engage in at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise every week for optimum heart health. Running, swimming and cycling are all great options! Taking the stairs instead of the lift is one simple way to squeeze some aerobic exercise into your day. No more excuses!

The Heart

Pumps blood throughout the body, supplying oxygen and nutrients to the tissues while removing carbon dioxide and other wastes.

Filter and absorb nutrients from blood, removing wastes, toxins and extra water to make urine
