Your cardiovascular system or circulatory system is where the heart pumps blood throughout your body through the circulation of blood in various blood channels called blood vessels leading up to different parts of the body. It allows the passage of nutrients, gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, and various hormones to exert their effect on the target organs or tissues. Good cardiovascular health is the key to an active and fulfilling life.
Of late, the heart and blood vessels are plagued by numerous illnesses such as obesity, hypercholesterolemia which means high blood cholesterol, hypertension which is high blood pressure, atherosclerosis or stiffening of arteries, heart attack, heart failure and cerebrovascular stroke which means bleeding into the brain. This sudden rise in heart and blood vessel disorders is due to the adoption of various unhealthy habits such as over indulgent lifestyles, smoking and poor dietary habits.
Cardiovascular health can be restored by meticulously following a low-salt, low-cholesterol diet, regular exercise, quitting smoking, and dietary supplements.
It has been used for managing hypertension and heart disease in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It is known to increase red blood cell generation and improve circulation to various tissues.
