Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, supports recent research that shows how certain risk factors may increase the incidence of stroke in the general public
According to a recent medical report published in the journal Stroke Research and Treatment, certain risk factors may increase the incidence of stroke in the general public. Using a study population consisting of approximately 1,027 stroke patients, the proponents of the study examined the features of the study participants, including age, gender, and other diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. This research design allowed the investigators to directly determine specific risk factors that may influence the development of stroke.
The study population classified the patients according to age groups, namely young adults, who were below 50 years of age, middle-aged, or those who were within the age range of 50–80 years old, and very old, or those individuals who were 80 years old and above. Each group of study participants was then examined in terms of the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and gender.
The results of the study showed the male participants experience a cerebrovascular incident or stroke at a younger age than female participants. In addition, young adults were more active in drinking and smoking, as compared to the middle-aged and very old age groups. When all these variables are factored in, the analysis showed that the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases might be higher among young adults if they are engaged in heavy drinking and smoking. It is thus important to monitor the heart health of individuals even during young adult ages because this may provide information on whether cardiac care measures need to be adapted by an individual.
This recent medical report provides helpful information in understanding how heart health can be improved even during younger adult years. Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “The report showed that despite the advanced age of the other study participants, the risk for cardiovascular disease might be lower if they are leading a healthy lifestyle that includes eating fruits and vegetables and avoiding alcohol beverages and smoking. On the other hand, the heart health of a young adult might be of less quality if he or she is frequently drinking huge amounts of alcoholic beverages.” Coupling heaving drinking with smoking may also further facilitate in the deterioration of heart health.
Physicians and health-focused government agencies have actively campaigned for healthy lifestyles, including regular exercise and the consumption of nutritious food items. These efforts may serve as cardiac care measures that may result in a healthy body. Following a healthy lifestyle may also decrease the incidence of mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, which is generally considered as a preventable and lifestyle disease.
CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang, “Consumption of fruits and vegetables may increase the amount of vitamins and minerals that enter the body, as well as serve as a source for antioxidants that help in the repair of damaged tissues.”
