Preventing Heart Attacks and Blood Strokes

There exist quite a few hazards that cause cardiovascular diseases, the major ones being arterial hypertension, blood cholesterol and sugar content higher than normal, high blood viscosity and exuberant thrombosis. The risks are even higher if the above hazards are accompanied with excess weight, physical inactivity, permanent stress.   

What is the Danger of Hypertension?

Blood hypertension makes the heart work more intensively, which   results in its weakening and significant aging. Moreover, it is hypertension that causes vessel rupture and hemorrhage that result in one of the blood stroke types.

What if Sugar and Cholesterol Levels are Higher than Normal?

The human body produces insulin, a hormone that helps the body cells to retrieve sugar from blood to generate energy. When insulin is insufficient or when it is not utilized properly, for instance, in diabetes, blood accumulates sugar. This accelerates the development of atherosclerotic vascular disease, i.e. arteriostenosis and arterial adhesion. A similar situation takes place when blood accumulates an excessive content of fats, viz., cholesterol and triglycerides. These pathological processes dramatically enhance the likelihood of heart attacks and blood strokes

If you have instable arterial blood pressure and blood cholesterol, and sugar level higher than normal, try to change your way of life to reduce the impact of the above factors on your health: eat a balanced diet with high rate of fruit and vegetables; reduce the consumption of sugar, salt and alcohol; increase physical activity; quit smoking.

If the above measures are insufficient, draw your focus toward natural medications that are targeted at comprehensive solution of quite a number of these problems.

What is the Result of Thrombosis?

Blood clots are yet another serious danger for the health of the cardiovascular system. Despite the fact that thrombosis is a natural process for human body, sometimes its rate and activity exceed the acceptable norms. It happens when atherosclerotic plaques that affect the vessel walls, are located in the vessel lumen and cause significant luminal occlusion. The body response is formation of a blood clot up to 1 cm in length. It is this clot that induces an arteriospasm and stops the bloodstream, which result in myocardial infarction. Besides, the blood clot can detach and cause a blood stroke.

To prevent excessive thrombosis, blood thinners should be regularly administered.
