Changing your lifestyle can save your heart!
The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, blood vessels and blood. Powered by the heart, it is responsible for transporting oxygen, nutrients and waste products throughout our body.
Heart disease is the leading cause of premature death in most developed countries. It is most commonly caused by narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries (the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). While we don’t have control of some risk factors for developing heart disease (e.g. increasing age, family history, heart disease primarily affects men and women after menopause, etc.), many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with making healthy life-style choices and affecting modifiable physiological factors (e.g. smoking, poor diet, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, obesity, physical inactivity, and stress are all modifiable factors).
Hence, the key to reducing the risk of developing heart disease is making healthy choices and supplementing our diet with natural products that strengthen our blood vessels.
