Heart & blood vessels

The human body's cardiovascular system consists of the heart, blood vessels, and blood, and is also known as the circulatory system. Within this system, we can distinguish two types of blood vessels, namely arteries and veins. The system is responsible for pumping blood, which transports nutrients, waste products, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hormones throughout the entire body. The amount of blood in an adult body depends on factors such as age, gender, and weight. On average, an adult woman has about 4.5 liters of blood, while an adult man has around 5.6 liters. This blood is pumped around the body by the heart, which typically beats at an average rate of 60 to 100 times per minute. Did you know that the total length of all the arteries, blood vessels, and capillaries in the human body is approximately 100,000 kilometers? There's a lot you can do to keep your heart and blood vessels in good condition, such as avoiding stress, not smoking, and getting enough exercise. With a bit of support, you can often give your heart and blood vessels a helping hand!

What Is Blood?

Blood is essential for our bodies. Without blood, we cannot survive! This vital red fluid serves numerous functions in our bodies and consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. A little less than half of our blood is composed of red and white blood cells, while the other half is plasma, which is primarily made up of water and plays a crucial transport role. Blood cells and platelets are suspended within the plasma, along with nutrients, hormones, and oxygen. Perhaps the most important function of blood is transporting oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and carrying carbon dioxide back to the lungs. Additionally, blood ensures that tissues and organs receive essential nutrients. Blood also transports waste products, which are then expelled from the body through the intestines or the bladder. Furthermore, blood plays a vital role in our defense against pathogens.

The Role of the Heart

The heart is a powerful muscle, about the size of a clenched fist, located slightly left of the center in your chest. Its primary function is to pump blood throughout the body. On average, the heart pumps around 7,000 liters of blood every day, which is equivalent to a tank truck full of blood! Blood circulates through the body via two primary circuits: the systemic circulation and the pulmonary circulation. The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs, which is then pumped throughout the body by the left ventricle. Conversely, the right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body, which is pumped by the right ventricle to the lungs. In the lungs, blood gives off carbon dioxide and absorbs oxygen. This oxygen-rich blood flows back to the heart through the pulmonary veins and is then pumped out to the rest of the body. Tiny blood vessels, known as coronary arteries, run along the outside of the heart muscle to supply the heart muscle itself with adequate oxygen and nutrients.

Heart Health

Many people are aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. They often seek natural ways to support heart and blood vessel health. A balanced and varied diet is crucial. Omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA and EPA are beneficial for heart and blood vessels, as they help maintain normal blood fat levels, support healthy blood pressure, and contribute to the normal functioning of the heart. Vitamin K supports blood clotting, and foods rich in vitamin C, as well as walnuts, are good for blood vessels. Vitamin C is known to promote collagen formation, which is essential for maintaining strong blood vessel walls. With ingredients like these, you can also support heart and blood vessels with high-quality supplements!
