The circulatory system provides for a continuous flow of blood in all the organs of the body, to ensure the supply of oxygen and nutrients to organs and tissues.

The main organ of this system is the heart , which with constant force and in a regular and continuous way pumps blood through a dense network of arteries, capillaries and veins.

Stressful rhythms of life, an irregular diet and some bad habits favor the onset of cardiovascular diseases; following a healthy lifestyle is therefore of fundamental importance to keep the heart in good health and help it work at its best .

Here are some simple rules within everyone's reach to prevent and combat the occurrence of diseases and problems of the cardiovascular system.

1) Reduce the consumption of salt : currently, the average daily consumption of salt in the Italian population is around 10/12 grams, while according to the LARN (Reference Intake Levels of Nutrients and Energy for the Italian population) and the WHO (World Health Organization) this value should not exceed the 5 gram threshold. This allows to improve circulation both in the blood and lymphatic level, and to reduce hypertension .

2) Consume more fruits and vegetables : some vitamins such as E, C and A, of which fruits and vegetables are rich, offer effective protection from conditions such as hypertension and atherosclerosis. The most suitable amount of fruit and vegetables to consume is five servings a day: the ideal would be based on the consumption of fruit and vegetables of different colors.

3) Maintain a correct body weight : Conditions such as overweight or obesity combine to increase the amount of visceral fat, especially in the abdominal area, the most dangerous for the heart. Therefore it is essential to pay attention to your weight, so as not to subject the heart to excessive strain.

4) Reduce the consumption of refined foods

Refined foods (i.e. based on white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated fats), following their production process, are no longer in their natural state but treated with additives and other substances which, to improve their organoleptic characteristics, modify their values nutritional. In addition, it is also important to decrease the intake of sugary drinks. Excess can lead to an increase in blood sugar and the onset of diseases such as diabetes, which can have negative consequences on the heart and the cardiovascular system in general.

5) Reduce alcohol : alcohol, in addition to being an enemy of the liver, also has consequences on the cardiovascular system as it helps to increase the fragility of blood vessels.

6) Perform regular physical activity: aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, cycling, skiing and swimming, is ideal for reducing fat mass, for reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels and for maintaining healthy, strong and vital heart. Instead, it is better to avoid short and intense efforts that risk overloading it. Physical activity should be carried out for at least 40 minutes, two to three times a week.

7) Keep cholesterol under control : for this purpose it is useful to control at least the cholesterol taken with the diet and therefore avoid foods rich in animal fats (such as butter, fatty cheeses, lard) and instead, take foods containing Omega 3, 6 and 9 (oily fish, salmon, extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, linseed) which lower the level of bad cholesterol and promote the elasticity of the arteries.

8) Avoid smoking : as countless studies confirm, those who smoke are 5 times more likely to develop cardiovascular problems than non-smokers. Smoking increases blood pressure and is harmful especially for those suffering from hypertension.

9) Use CoenzymeQ10 to keep the heart in good health : there are ad hoc formulated products, such as VitaquoreQ10 , a supplement that in addition to promoting the well-being and correct functionality of the heart thanks to coenzymeQ10, a cardiotonic molecule, simultaneously helps to rebalance blood pressure thanks to its other valuable ingredients: pine, hawthorn and zinc ..

Try VitaquoreQ10 .

10) Use products containing amino acids such as L-arginine, Taurine and Citrulline , such as Nitrocs Capsule, which cleans the arteries by preventing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, hypertension, the possibility of heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases.

Don't miss out on Nitrocs Capsule .
