February is ‘Heart Month’ and with Valentine’s Day approaching, what better time for you to think about your own heart and the heart of your friends and family.

Why don’t you test out the Heart Age Calculator and take action to make lifestyle changes to improve your heart health?

You just need to input simple lifestyle information including your weight, height and smoking habits. The tool then provides you with the following information:

  • Your heart age compared to your real age
  • The importance of knowing your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers
  • Advice on how to reduce your heart age

This tool is collaboration between NHS Choices, Public Health England and the British Heart Foundation.

To find out if you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check and for further information and lifestyle advice please visit the NHS Website.
