They succeeded in lowering the systolic and diastolic blood pressure by 4.5 points to 4.2 points, with compounds flavonoids – antioxidants found in dark chocolate. Even then again, these habits can reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems by 20 percent over 5 years. But you have to choose the exact type of chocolate in question. Dark chocolate contains more antioxidants and less sugar content. Choose dark chocolate with a minimum cocoa content of 65 percent.
2. Have sex
To maintain blood flow remains smooth, it is recommended to have sex at least 2-3 times a week. A recent study by the New England Research Institute found that men who make these recommendations have a chance to 65 percent less heart disease than those who had sex less than once a month.
In a 2006 study at the University of Paisley, Scotland, people have sex at least once during the two weeks had lower blood pressure than those who do not engage in sexual activity, andhave lower stress levels. Researchers believe, during sex hormone, the body of oxytocin – which reduces the risk of stress.Sex can be a great exercise to burn 60 calories per half hour in bed.
3. Listen to music
Music is the perfect tool to loosen your blood vessels. 30 minutes a day listening to music “rhythmically homogenous” (a highlight), combined with breathing exercises, can lower systolic blood pressure of more than four points after three months, according to a study in Italy.
Randall Zusman, MD, director of the division of hypertension at the heart of Central Massachusetts General Hospital said, inhaling and exhaling slowly 1-2 times while listening to music (slow), will make your blood vessels release.

Laughter seems to bring its own advantages, especially in maintaining arterial health. Laugh at the funny scenes cause blood vessels to dilate by 22 percent, according to a 2006 study from the University of Maryland. Laughter causes the tissue that forms the inner lining of blood vessels expand, allowing increased blood flow and blood pressure decrease, says Dr. Miller.

Glass of Wine Each Day Could Healthy /glass-of-wine-each-day-could-healthy.html /glass-of-wine-each-day-could-healthy.html#comments Thu, 08 Sep 2011 15:03:42 +0000 qhiqy /?p=908
Excessive alcohol consumption is bad for health. But if we know the limits of alcohol consumption, particularly wine is healthy, especially for women.

Recent studies show that people aged 50 years and consume a little wine on a regular basis when the dinner hour are more likely to prevent diseases ranging from cancer to heart disease than those who drink to excess.

A large study concluded that the impact of wine consumption in moderate amounts can make the spirit of a stronger person, body shape and be in better mental health. Even so, experts say the study should not be used to justify that alcohol is always good for health.

According to researchers, excellent health is also associated with other factors, such as management of a healthy diet and regular exercise. They also show that alcohol can cause people who are elderly are most at risk of falling.

Researchers at Harvard University studied 120 000 nurses aged 58 years (group of moderate drinkers) and observed their medical history until the age of 70.

The results showed nearly 11 percent of those who tread 70, a good health. They are known to be free of 11 types of diseases that commonly encountered in old age, such as cancer, stroke, heart attack and diabetes.

They also mentally strong, far from Alzheimer’s disease and physically fit. This also applies to those who consume alcohol regularly with mild to moderate doses, as reported in the journal PLoS Medicine. Researchers say drink 15g to 30g of alcohol a day can improve overall health in a few years later by 28 percent, mainly drink wine.

The researchers recommend that women can consume 15 g of alcohol per day (to avoid the possibility of breast cancer). This amount is equivalent to about two glasses of wine, and has the potential to improve health in old age (nearly 20 per cent).

The study also showed that daily consumption of alcohol is more profitable than just occasionally or twice a week. According to them, daily drinkers are 50 percent more likely to have a healthy old age than those who never drank.

Seaweed Healthy Heart /seaweed-healthy-heart.html /seaweed-healthy-heart.html#comments Mon, 15 Aug 2011 13:03:15 +0000 qhiqy /?p=762
The heart is one of the most important organs of the body and is the main engine of the drainage of blood. Therefore, maintainingheart health is important. The efforts that you can do is to avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, eating a balanced diet and regular exercise.

One way that can potentially help heart health is the consumption of algae. Scientists have identified that the algae (seaweed)have great potential as a food that is heart healthy.

Article published in the Journal of Agricultural and FoodChemistry of the States, the algae can compete with dairy products as sources of nutrients called “bioactive peptides”.

Researchers made ​​byDr. Mary Hayes, Ciaran Fitzgerald,Eimear Gallagher, Deniz Tasdemir, and the Food Research Centre, Teagasc, Ireland has conducted a study on the use ofalgae as a source of protein that has properties such asbioactive peptides.

“Bioactive peptides” which are found in dairy products, not onlyprovides nutrients, but also has the same effect with the drug and prevent some diseases.

Algae is also known as an alternative source of macro-algaefood rich in nutrients. Communities in East Asia for centuries and other cultures eat seaweed.

Review of 100 studies concluded that seaweed contains a protein that functions as boiactive peptides in dairy products.Bioactive peptides are useful for lowering blood pressure and almost the same as ACE inhibitors that are popular.

“Marcoalga various species and the environment in which they are located and the ease of cultivation make algae is relatively unexplored as new bioactive compounds. It should be moreefforts to exploit its potential to be used and marketed food products”, said the researchers in a report.
