Every year, thousands of people die from cardiac arrest. Despite the rapid arrival of rescue services, 95% of victims do not survive. Faced with such a situation, one wonders if it is possible to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The answer is yes.
Leading researchers say that simply spending time outdoors, in the sun, exercising and, above all, eating well can already reduce the risk considerably. Doing sports and walking for a good thirty minutes a day can also balance one’s health. Fortunately, nature gives us everything our body needs for better health. Garlic is scientifically proven to have cardiovascular health benefits.
The benefits of garlic
Scientific studies show that garlic can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and increase the number of healthy years of life. Garlic is rich in allicin, glycosides, lectins, prostaglandins, vitamins B and E, anthocyanins and flavonoids which may have cardio protective effects. Consuming 4 g of fresh garlic daily can supplement your food intake in the form of a nutritional supplement of at least 10 mg of allicin per day. Garlic can also reduce the production of fatty plaques on the arteries and helps to balance your cardio balance.
The benefits of L-carnitine
L-carnitine is a red meat compound responsible for atherosclerosis. It is a dietary supplement that reduces overall all-cause mortality by 27% in patients who have had a first myocardial infarction by taking a dose of 1000 mg/day for 12 weeks. More specifically, carnitine is associated with a 65% reduction in dangerous ventricular arrhythmias and a 40% reduction in heart attacks. Carnitine improves blood cholesterol values by lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increasing HDL (“good”) cholesterol. It also has a direct protective effect on the heart.
The benefits of CoQ10
CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant and protects against “bad” LDL cholesterol. Researchers have found that sick people have lower coQ10 levels than healthy people. CoQ10 may help reduce the side effects of certain cholesterol-lowering drugs such as statins. CoQ10 can treat heart failure, various heart conditions or poor cardiovascular health and help control high blood pressure. The best sources of CoQ10 are meats, fish, canola oil, soybean oil, nuts and seeds. In terms of dosage, it is recommended to take 100 to 150 mg of CoQ10 per day.
