Cardiovascular diseases are a series of diseases that affect the heart and the blood vessels and are currently the second leading cause of death, after cancer.
Pollution, combined with a lifestyle that is increasingly sedentary and characterised by an unbalanced diet and abuse of alcohol and tobacco, are the main causes of this sad statistic.
The prevention of cardiovascular disease is therefore, about the specific need to reduce the above-mentioned risk factors.
Combatting “poor nutrition” is therefore key and is therefore, a factor on which we can take steps ourselves directly (unlike others over which we have no control, such as ageing or pollution).
To reduce risk factors more effectively, it is important to combine a correct and balanced diet with supplements that participate in vascular protection, lower cholesterol and protect against the genetic mutations responsible for cardiovascular diseases.
