New follow-up research shows that middle-aged women are now increasingly at risk of heart disease. Generally middle aged men were thought to be in the higher risk group. Women's hormones gave a protective effect against cardiovascular problems. However increasing rates of obesity are eroding the protection that hormones give and causing a higher risk of heart attacks and stroke.
Heart health can be improved and protected with healthy eating and healthy living. Reducing weight and increasing exercise is the first step to cardiovascular health. The risk of strokes and other heart disorders can be further mitigated by herbs and herbal supplements such as Arjuna and Abana.
Arjuna is a herb that contains COQ10 apart from other compounds. This herbal extract is actually the bark of the Arjuna tree found in India. Arjuna is known to protect against heart disease and strengthen heart muscles.
Abana is a herbal and mineral formulation containing herbs such as Arjuna, Guggul, Ashwagandha for a total of more than 40 herbs and minerals. This formulation is designed as a heart tonic and helps improve cardiovascular health. It improves blood circulation, blood pressure and also controls cholesterol levels.
