The good condition and effective work of your heart and circulatory system depends on your lifestyle. Tobacco, alcohol, malnutrition and sedentary lifestyle are the main enemies of your cardiovascular system. They deprive cells of oxygen and vitamins, increase the level of toxins in your body, affecting the organs, cause an increase in blood pressure.
But the heart can also seriously suffer from other causes, which at first glance are not conspicuous. Even if you do not smoke and do not drink alcohol, and lead an active lifestyle, and avoid the junk food side, a heart attack can happen. A history of problems with digestion, a lack of nutrients, an abundance of negative experiences, negative emotions, stresses make us vulnerable. They cause a small deficit of vital nutrients, and deterioration in your body can go on unnoticed for many years, and usually heart attacks catch up with us at a mature age. Accumulation of these harmful factors is like a stone fallen from a snowy peak that causes a snow avalanche. The lack of the necessary molecule for the synthesis of an enzyme slows down metabolism, and the exchange of other nutrients is also impaired. And finally, the deficit becomes widespread, and the process of damage to organs and tissues begins, not only in the heart.
Heart attacks are very often associated with malnutrition and impaired cholesterol metabolism. But behind this is a complex metabolic process involving enzymes, vitamins, minerals.
Often in the treatment of heart disorders, the specifics of biochemical processes are not taken into account. Instead, you are offered high-tech, costly surgeries, implantation of pacemakers, shunting of the coronary arteries, and the like. After this, the patient is given large doses of highly toxic drugs to suppress the immune system, antibiotics, etc., leaving the patient vulnerable to other diseases. Isolated treatment of any disease, ignoring the relationships in the body is contrary to a holistic approach to health. By focusing on the treatment of marked symptoms of the disease, they miss other basic pathological processes, metabolic imbalances, which are the main cause of the disease.
The concentration on lipid metabolism only is erroneous, we draw attention to the peculiarities of metabolism that impair the protein metabolism first. When the walls of the arteries lose elasticity, blood pressure rises, liver cells begin to work inefficiently, enzyme and hormonal regulation is disrupted.
Amino acids and their cofactors should be used to improve the treatment of heart diseases. Since they are the necessary starting material for all your metabolic processes, they will work diligently to ensure restoration and eliminate these metabolic disorders that lead to diseases of the cardiovascular system.
Let's consider the first key point–the role of the amino acid methionine in preventing the onset of atherosclerosis. Simply put, victims of atherosclerosis suffer from lipidosis (a disorder of lipid metabolism), and their arteries harden. After that, the blood pressure remains high, and the added stress leads to heart damage. Since the synthesis of lipid metabolism disorder products is one of the main causes of loss of elasticity of the vascular wall, most doctors associate this with an excess of fats in the diet. In the beginning of the 20th century, it was proved that the main cause of it was not the increase in the level of fats but the reduction of protein metabolism and the removal of methionine from this metabolism chain. In this chain, methionine is converted to another amino acid–cystathion. Before the formation of cystathione, methionine is converted to homocysteine. It is this substance that causes atherosclerosis.
In a healthy, metabolically balanced body, this entire process takes fractions of a second. Methionine is converted into homocysteine, which is then converted into cystathion. To convert homocysteine into cystathion, the body calls enzymes for help that are formed from several amino acids with the participation of vitamins. And if at least one element of this chain is absent, the process of transformation will be stopped and homocysteine will begin a free and uncontrolled journey through the body.
But why is homocysteine so dangerous? In simple terms, it looks like a clawed paw. Passing through the vessels, homocysteine mercilessly scratches the delicate vascular wall, and cholesterol and minerals get easily attached to these scratched spots. And the arteries lose their distensibility and get littered. Available space for blood flow is narrowed. And the body reacts straightforwardly: to ensure the flow of blood to the end user, the cells, it increases the pressure in the vessels. The heart starts to pump blood more intensely and more rapidly, but it can not work for a long time in this mode and it weakens. Consequently, the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells is reduced. Hurried diminished breathing, sweating, palpitation are the main symptoms of this disease. And the victim of this process may have a heart attack or a stroke.
Fortunately, the use of special amino acid mixtures and cofactors involved in methionine metabolism will help to avoid such a fate. Nutrients that help create the enzyme necessary for this chain are vitamin B6 and the amino acid serine. And when this element is lost, the body cannot convert homocystien into cystathion.
In a healthy body, homocysteine is converted back to the parent molecule of methionine. Essential for this substance in our body are an adequate amount of methionine, several enzymes and vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12, like vitamin B6, requires a special methionine. It is a large molecule, and its absorption is possible only in the lower parts of the small intestine. If you suffer from digestive disorders, such as diarrhea, a large amount of vitamin B12 will quickly slip through this area and leave the body. And for it to get through the wall of the small intestine, a protein called "internal factor" comes to the aid, which also depends on a certain set of amino acids. Therefore, if you decide to start taking vitamin B12, your intestines should be healthy so that this vitamin can be absorbed. The best way to supply the body with vitamin B12 is to take it together with a special mixture of amino acids. Easily absorbed, they help the pancreas and liver to produce all the necessary digestive enzymes.
Now it becomes clear to you that any scarcity in any part of the body can cause a wide range of problems in the future. This comprehensive approach is awesome. Instead of believing that atherosclerosis arises from eating large amounts of cholesterol, we will look at this symptom as a complex biochemical imbalance. This is how amino acids and their helpers can be used to restore the normal condition, which indicates the importance of maintaining the correct metabolism throughout the body.
Carnosine is another amino acid derivative needed to restore the heart. Lack of this substance leads to disruption of the vascular wall and poor supply of heart cells with oxygen. The use of carnosine will free the blood vessels from fat deposits that will burn in the cell furnace and give extra energy to your heart!
All this will allow the heart to work better even under stress.
Another very useful amino acid is arginine. Studies have shown that regular and even isolated use of this amino acid reduces the number of myocardial infarctions. Its effectiveness is based on the nitric oxide synthesis. This is very important, since it prevents spasms of small vessels in the heart. It also helps to avoid damage to the vascular wall, which, if not paid attention to, would lead to the formation of plaques, hardening of the arteries and increased blood pressure.
By taking a combination of amino acid mixtures you will free your heart from physical overload by eliminating muscle spasm, increasing the supply of cardiac muscle with energy and oxygen. At this time, other amino acids will release the vessels from the sweeping "scraper" of homocysteine, facilitating the removal of fat from the walls of the vessels.
One of the effective amino acids is histidine. Its highly active form, histamine, is a sedative neurotransmitter and the most important substance released from mast cells–the entities responsible for redness. It is responsible for dealing with cardiac disorders, as it causes the opening of capillaries, reduces blood pressure throughout the body, thereby relieving the heart from overload.
We recommend to combine the intake of amino acids with a program of physical activity
