Health Brief Qivana
More than 17 million people died from cardiovascular disease in 2008, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes are significant risk factors for later cardiovascular disease. WHO estimates that cardiovascular disease will become the leading cause of death by 2030.
Our arteries are the transportation highway for oxygen and nutrient rich blood to reach every organ, tissue and cell in our body. Nitric Oxide (N-O) is the nutrient that keeps this highway wide-open, flexible and smooth for blood to flow freely. At age 40, a natural but dramatic decline in Nitric Oxide production takes places. A lack of nutrients can cause this to happen even earlier. Without intervention, arteries narrow and stiffen, creating a buildup of plaque and compromising blood flow.
The ability to produce required amounts of N-O, requires a diet rich in herbs and botanicals (nuts and seeds) with high protein levels as well as natural and organic meats and dairy.
While genetic factors play a part, 80 to 90 percent of people dying from coronary heart disease have one or more major risk factors that are influenced by lifestyle. Modifiable factors include vigorous physical activities daily, lots of fruits and vegetables, no tobacco use, maintain a safe weight along with normal vitamin levels and moderate alcohol consumption.
If the ability to reach or maintain these levels prove difficult on an ongoing daily basis the need for supplementation is required.
