Heart Health Herbal Food Supplement - The Science Behind



Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the leading global cause of death, accounting for 17.3 million deaths per year, a number that is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030 (American Heart Association). It is estimated that 90% of CVD is preventable.

CVD is a term used to describe all diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The cause of most CVD is the gradual narrowing or blockage of blood vessels. This process is called atherosclerosis and is due to the build-up of fatty deposits in the lining of blood vessels. There are a number of factors that are associated with developing CVD. Risk factors include: High blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, physical inactivity, being overweight, excessive alcohol consumption, diabetes. Many of these risk factors can be prevented and managed by lifestyle changes. A healthy lifestyle plays an important role in the prevention and management of CVD. Olives & extra virgin olive oil, an important component of the Mediterranean diet, may have benefits for those at risk of developing some short of CVD.
