On the occasion of World Heart Day, Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre wishes you a Healthy Heart & a Happy Life. We care for your heart – which is why we want you as well as your family members to get screened for cardiac health.

Below is a list of some of the questions we received from people like you and the answers posted by our expert team of Cardiologists and Cardiac Surgeons.

  • How helpful are workouts and walks for healthy heart.

    thank you for your query. Workouts and walks are very important exercise for heart. Brisk walking for 40 mints a day for 5 days in a week is considered one of the best exercise for heart. This increases the heart rate and causes blood vessels to expand which increases the blood supply to heart. There are lot of other benefits of brisk walking. I would suggest you to keep walking and doing workouts and keep your heart healthy.
