Unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercise tend to increase the blood cholesterol levels. If left untreated, excessive lipids begin to accumulate along the arterial walls, causing narrowing and hardening of the arteries. This progressive process slowly blocks arteries, thus reducing the blood flow to and from the heart. Blocked heart arteries may lead to heart stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease and sudden heart failure.
Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure in which a stent is placed to widen/open the blocked heart arteries. It is a highly skilful procedure that must be performed by a specialized cardiologist and a team of cardiovascular technicians and nurses. Although coronary angioplasty will open a blocked artery, remember that it will not cure atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease. Make sure that you bring healthy changes to your lifestyle by avoiding smoking and consumption of fatty foods. It is also important to incorporate an effective exercise regimen into your daily routine to improve your cardiac health.
You should also use a dietary supplement that helps maintain the health of your cardiovascular system and promotes a healthy blood circulation. Equazen Cardiozen Fish Oil is a popular brand on the market that contains 80% omega-3 long chain fatty acids particularly EPA. EPA is converted into hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins that help maintain the health of your heart. Equazen Cardiozen also contains coenzyme Q10 that plays an important role in the production of energy within the cells of heart muscle and other muscle tissues. Take one capsule per day with food. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
