In almost every country Coronary Heart Disease or one or more forms of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is listed in the top 5 leading causes of death.
Over a Billion people worldwide suffer from one or more forms of Cardiovascular Disease which includes all the diseases of the heart and circulation including coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack, congenital heart disease and stroke.
IS HEART DISEASE A LIFESTYLE DISEASE?
Heart Disease can be called a lifestyle disease that is caused by poor eating habits, smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, lack of physical activity, stress, lack of sleep and pollution.
Newer scientific research has now shown that the real cause of heart disease is arterial inflammation. The processed foods we eat, aging in general, stress, and pollution cause an inflammatory reaction on a cellular level in the arterial wall.
Inflammation is the body’s protective response to irritation or injury. The same healing mechanism that helps a paper cut heal is the same response inside the arterial wall that’s clogging our arteries. It’s an immune response.
NITRIC OXIDE TO THE RESCUE
It turns out, many lives could be saved from heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular disease if more people were to discover the miracle properties of Nitric Oxide (NO).
