High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a condition in which the force of the blood pumped by the heart is consistently elevated due to the resistance of the arteries against the blood flow. Blood pressure is measured as the pressure of the heart beat (systolic) over the pressure of the heart at rest (diastolic). Hypertension is defined as a blood pressure of 140/90. Normal, or healthy, blood pressure for average adults should be 120/80 or less.
According the American Heart Association, nearly one third of adult Americans have high blood pressure, and 30% of them don’t know it! This is why hypertension is also known as “the silent killer.” It has no outward warning signs and no definitive cause. Left unchecked, high blood pressure elevates your risk for heart attack, stroke, kidney damage, and other conditions that may result from too much pressure in delicate blood vessels and tissues. Your heart also enlarges as it struggles to pump blood effectively through the body, which decreases its efficiency.
While there is no known cause, there are risk factors (besides age and genetics) that you can control. These include:
- Obesity. Those who are overweight or obese are up to five times more likely to have hypertension due to excess weight.
- Sodium. Too much salt in the diet can elevate some people’s blood pressure. Don’t consume more than the daily recommended amount.
- Alcohol consumption. Drinking too heavily or too often doesn’t just affect your liver! It also affects your blood pressure.
- Lack of exercise. Physical activity is important to controlling weight and improving the overall health of your body and your heart’s efficiency.
- Stress. Some people are unable to handle stress well, and this also puts them at risk of elevated blood pressure. Long term stress can seriously affect your heart health.
Blood pressure should be checked as part of your regular doctor’s visits. Your doctor may monitor your pressure over time to determine if you have high blood pressure or if you have risk factors for it. Once it’s determined you have it, hypertension is easy to treat and control with proper oversight, but almost 65% of those with high blood pressure do not have it under control and continue to put their health at risk.
Chelation therapy from Cardio Renew can help you relieve hypertension. The primary ingredient, the EDTA chelator, binds the excess metals and minerals, like calcium, that collect in the plaque blockages in arteries. Once bound, the EDTA-calcium complex is removed from the body. Circulation improves as your body is better able to clear the plaque deposits and arteries become more elastic. Your heart can then pump more efficiently and you’re able to return your blood pressure to a healthy level. Start with the six-week chelation therapy pack and Krill Oil Soft Gels to put yourself on the road to better health!
Along with a healthy diet and exercise, liquid chelation therapy can bring you many health benefits. Good blood flow and heart health are necessary to a healthy life, and at Cardio Renew we’re committed to helping you achieve that. We stand behind our oral chelation therapy, which is made of 100% fresh ingredients, and have a money back guarantee should you not be satisfied
