High blood pressure is a very common condition that can derive from many causes such as: hormonal alterations , a diet rich in salt , stress but also kidney diseases .
Some symptoms can be a wake-up call, including: headache and tiredness up to symptoms of greater entity such as chest weight and breathlessness.
Exercise and a balanced diet are essential to contain blood pressure values, but they are often not enough and before resorting to drugs it is preferable (obviously in less severe cases), to start a path with natural-based supplements.
VitaquoreQ10 is a food supplement based on ubiquinol , pine, hawthorn and zinc .
Ubiquinol is the reduced, active and antioxidant form of CoenzymeQ10 , it is effective in slowing down the aging process , protecting the body's cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals . The presence of hawthorn allows the regulation of blood pressure and the functionality of the cardiovascular system, promoting relaxation.
Who is coenzyme Q10?
CoenzymeQ10 is the key to the production of ATP, the main energy source of our body. It is essential for the functioning of the heart muscle and has an antioxidant action and protects cells from free radicals . In particular, it is effective against peroxides that damage collagen and elastin which are the main constituents of the dermal structure .
VitaquoreQ10 is useful in case of hypertension and for the prevention of heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases and skin aging.
The amount of coenzyme Q10 decreases over the years or as a result of taking drugs such as statins.
The heart is responsible for pumping blood to organs and tissues, blood pressure is the pressure the heart exerts to circulate blood in the body.
What is the difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure?
Systolic pressure is measured when the heart contracts and pumps blood into the arteries, while diastolic is measured between two contractions, as the heart relaxes and fills with blood.
The pressure is considered optimal when it does not exceed 120 mmHg for systolic and 80 mmHg for diastolic.
When is pressure measured?
Blood pressure should be measured in the morning when the values are higher and in the evening when they are lower .
To get an exact result, the measurement must be repeated 2/3 times , possibly in a quiet and distraction-free environment.
