Study: Small Cluster Of Cells Responsible For Controlling Blood Pressure


Study: Small Cluster Of Cells Responsible For Controlling Blood Pressure    




High blood pressure is usually treated with medicines and a change of habits. However, it has been discovered that a small cluster of cells located near the carotid artery can cause high blood pressure. Researches removed this body the size of a rice grain and it resulted in an immediate drop in blood pressure. Apparently, this body monitors the oxygen level in the blood, informing the brain to increase the blood pressure, and this monitoring can give false readings. Click here for more info.

Magnesium Shortage Leads To High Blood Pressure


Magnesium Shortage Leads To High Blood Pressure    




Magnesium is a fundamental mineral for the proper functioning of the body. It is necessary for the operation of more than 300 enzymes. Also, it is essential for the activity of muscles and nerves, hormones, immune system, and food processing. Low magnesium intake has serious consequences. Among them are high blood pressure, diabetes, migraine headache. Also, there are fatigue, confusion, anxiety, muscle cramps, nausea, among others. Check all the list. More details click here.



 

Check These Ways To Reduce Salt Intake


Check These Ways To Reduce Salt Intake    




It is well known that excess salt intake is related to high blood pressure. The main component of salt is sodium, which together with potassium, are necessary for the body processes. The danger occurs when there is excess sodium. There are ways to control this, such as eating fruits and vegetables rich in potassium to balance the sodium. Also, replace the salt with herbs when cooking. Additional info click here.



 

Lower The Risk Of Heart Attack By 50% By Walking Or Cycling


Lower The Risk Of Heart Attack By 50% By Walking Or Cycling    




A study has shown that people with moderate activity, such as walking or bicycling reduces the risk of a heart attack in almost 50%. It is suggested to increase the activity in a progressive way, limiting it to 150 minutes of weekly activity. Click here for more details.



 

Negative Effects Of Sleep Apnea On Blood Pressure


Negative Effects Of Sleep Apnea On Blood Pressure    




Sleep apnea occurs when the air passage in the body is interrupted when sleeping, resulting in loud snoring and in breathing interruptions which can last from ten seconds to one minute. This leads to poor sleeping and a sense of fatigue on the next day. Among its consequences are high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and a high risk of heart attack, depression, and diabetes.

After A Cardiovascular Injury, Immune Cells In The Bloodstream Prevent The Heart From Healing


After A Cardiovascular Injury, Immune Cells In The Bloodstream Prevent The Heart From Healing    




They Inhibit The Curative Action Of The Immune Cells Located Inside The Heart    




Researchers have found that immune cells can help relieve heart disease or worsen it, depending on their location. They showed that immune cells located inside the heart are activated after an injury, reducing the risk of cardiovascular damage. But if the cells are located in the bloodstream and arrive at her heart, they worsen the disease. This occurs considering that both cell groups are of the same type, which is macrophages that consume cellular debris. They have different functions, depending if they are located inside the heart, or are located in the bloodstream and arrive at the heart after an injury. The cells in the bloodstream prevent the local cells from performing its healing job. Researchers are working on ways to inhibit the effect of immune cells in the bloodstream when they enter the heart. More Information click here.
