Fit Fathers

Men Have Hearts Too

Cardiovascular/Heart disease is common in men and you can help prevent your Dad from health complications. This condition can affect how blood flows through the body. Proper blood flow carries oxygen to the body and carries away waste. Heart disease can lead to issues with blood vessels, blood clots, or even the heart itself. While this can sound scary at first, a Heart Health conversation with your Health On South Rx Pharmacist can help prevent your Dad from disease and heart concerns. If Dad takes any blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, or high cholesterol medications, he should take advantage of this exceptional offer. Heart Health consultations always keep you informed and up-to-date on your current health. There are several OTC items at your pharmacy that can help Dad’s heart health which include:

Before using supplements, Dad should always consult with his healthcare provider for professional recommendations. During your next visit to Health On South Rx, Dad can book a Heart Health Conversation to discuss his heart meds and any other questions he might have about living a long and healthy life.


Healthy Meal Choices for Dad

Dad’s diet plays the biggest role for his overall health and wellness. Food is fuel for the body, and some foods are better than others. Dad should still enjoy his favorite foods but also incorporate healthy choices for a well-balanced diet. When Dad eats right, he enjoys:

  • Optimized heart health

  • Improved cholesterol control

  • Increased exercise endurance

  • Better sleep


Your Health On South Rx Pharmacist can help make sure Dad is eating to improve his health and wellness. A Healthy Plate Consultation will help Dad:


  • Make better food choices

  • Plan healthy meals for the family

  • Learn what foods are best to prevent heart disease

  • Be aware of what foods can affect cholesterol levels
