Blood clots that form inside arteries are the leading cause of death in the Western world.

Most heart attacks and strokes are caused by a blood clot that obstructs the flow of blood to a portion of the heart or brain. When blood flow is interrupted, cells are deprived of oxygen and die.

Blood clots kill more than 600,000 Americans every year, yet conventional medicine has largely ignored well-documented methods of reducing abnormal blood clot formation.

Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death in the US, and also is a major cause of disability and loss of independence and quality of life.4,5

Up to 40% of strokes can be fatal. Prompt treatment can significantly reduce the risk of disability and death.42

Here are some statistics: 
  • Approximately 795,000 people suffer a stroke each year. Most, about 600,000 of these, are first attacks, while 185,000 are recurrent attacks.
  • Stroke risk more than doubles each decade after age 55. Almost three-fourths of all stroke victims are over age 65.
  • However, strokes can and do occur at any age. Almost a quarter of all strokes occur in those under the age of 65.
  • African-Americans have a higher stroke death rate than whites, even at a younger age.
  • Every 40 seconds on average, someone in the United States suffers a stroke.
  • In 2005, stroke mortality was 137,000.
  • Current smokers have almost double the risk of nonsmokers of ischemic stroke after adjustment for other risk factors.
  • Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an independent risk factor for stroke, increasing risk about 5-fold.
  • The top risk factor for stroke is high blood pressure.

 Paralysis or the inability of a muscle to move is one of the most common disabilities resulting from stroke. Among people who survive a stroke, as many as nine out of 10 have some degree of paralysis immediately afterwards.44

While mainstream medicine has identified many of the risk factors for stroke, they too often omit other documented risk factors of stroke such as elevated blood levels of homocysteine,35,36,44,45 C-reactive protein,46-49 fibrinogen,49-53 LDL,54-57 and hormone imbalances.58-60

Annual blood testing, along with regular monitoring of blood pressure, are critical elements of a stroke prevention program.

Key Facts
Together, heart disease and stroke are among the most widespread and costly health problems facing the nation today. On a personal level, families who experience heart disease or stroke have to deal with not only medical bills but also lost wages and the real potential of a decreased standard of living.

  • Approximately 1.5 million heart attacks and strokes occur every year in the United States.
  • More than 800,000 people in the United States die from cardiovascular disease each year—that’s 1 in every 3 deaths, and about 160,000 of them occur in people under age 65.
  • Heart disease kills roughly the same number of people in the United States each year as cancer, lower respiratory diseases (including pneumonia), and accidents combined.
  • Heart disease and stroke cost the nation an estimated $316.6 billion in health care costs and lost productivity in 2011.

Costs & Consequences
Heart disease and stroke can be fatal, but they can also lead to serious illness, disability, and lower quality of life. Suffering a stroke may lead to significant disability, such as paralysis, speech difficulties, and emotional problems. Following a heart attack, individuals frequently suffer fatigue and depression, and they may find it more difficult to engage in physical activities.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW :
  Preventing Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Spending long periods sitting can lead to deep vein thrombosis, which can trigger a deadly pulmonary embolism.
  • Nattokinase and French maritime pine bark extract help prevent deep vein thrombosis by inhibiting unhealthy clotting, promoting leg microcirculation, and supporting vein flexibility.
  • A human study has shown that this dual-extract blend safely prevented deep vein thrombosis while also decreasing leg swelling.
  • These two extracts represent a safe, effective option for preventing the potentially deadly dangers associated with sitting for long periods of time.
