Is it possible to prevent heart attacks?
With the latest technology it is possible for you maintain your cardiovascular system and dramatically lower heart attack and stroke risk.
Did you know that most heart attacks and strokes occur
because arteries become blocked and stop the oxygen
rich red blood cells from reaching either the brain or heart?
This process is called atherosclerosis.

The caffeine in a cup of coffee might help your small blood vessels work better and hep to prevent heart attacks, according to research presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2013.
A study of twenty seven healthy adults showed for the first time - that drinking a cup of caffeinated coffee significantly improved blood flow in a finger, which is an accurate measure of how well the inner lining of the body's smaller blood vessels work. Specifically, participants who drank a cup of caffeinated coffee had a 30% increase in blood flow over a 75 minute period compared to those who drank decaffeinated coffee.
The study adds to a growing body of research about coffee, the most widely consumed beverage worldwide. Previous studies showed that drinking coffee is linked to lower risks of dying from stroke and helps prevent heart attacks. High doses of caffeine may improve the function of larger arteries.
Researchers measured finger blood flow with laser Doppler flowmetry, a non invasive technique for gauging blood circulation on a microscopic level. The study involved participants drinking caffeinated and non caffeinated coffee. Neither the researchers nor the participants knew when they were drinking caffeinated coffee.
Compared to decaf, caffeinated coffee slightly raised participants blood pressure and improved vessel inner lining function. Heart rate levels were the same between the two groups.
