CardioPhyt™ - Research Brief:
The heart is one of the most important organs in the entire human body. The heart pumps the blood, which carries all the vital materials, necessary for all body’s function and remove the waste products that we do not need. For example, the brain requires oxygen and glucose, which, if not received continuously, will cause it to lose consciousness. Muscles need oxygen, glucose and amino acids, as well as the proper ratio of sodium, calcium and potassium salts in order to contract normally.
In normal adults, the mass of the heart is 250-350 g (9-12 oz), or about three quarters the size of a clenched fist. It consists of four chambers, the two upper atria and the two lower ventricles.
The function of the right side of the heart is to collect de-oxygenated blood, in the right atrium, from the body and pump it, via the right ventricle, into the lungs, so that carbon dioxide can be dropped off and oxygen picked up. The left side collects oxygenated blood from the lungs into the left atrium. From the left atrium the blood moves to the left ventricle which pumps it out to the body. On both sides, the lower ventricles are thicker and stronger than the upper atria. The muscle wall surrounding the left ventricle is thicker than the wall surrounding the right ventricle due to the higher force needed to pump the blood through the systemic circulation.
Starting in the right atrium, the blood flows through the tricuspid valve to the right ventricle. Here it is pumped out the pulmonary semilunar valve and travels through the pulmonary artery to the lungs. From there, blood flows back through the pulmonary vein to the left atrium. It then travels through the bicuspid valve to the left ventricle, from where it is pumped through the aortic semilunar valve to the aorta. The aorta forks and the blood is divided between major arteries which supply the upper and lower body. The blood travels in the arteries to the smaller arterioles, then finally to the tiny capillaries which feed each cell. The deoxygenated blood then travels to the venules, into veins, then to the inferior and superior venae cavae and finally back to the right atrium where the process began.
The contraction of the cardiac muscle tissue in the ventricles is called systole. When the ventricles contract, they force the blood from their chambers into the arteries leaving the heart. The left ventricle empties into the aorta and the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery. The increased pressure due to the contraction of the ventricles is called systolic pressure. The relaxation of the cardiac muscle tissue in the ventricles is called diastole. When the ventricles relax, they make room to accept the blood from the atria. The decreased pressure due to the relaxation of the ventricles is called diastolic pressure.
Cardiac muscle requires uninterrupted supply of nutrients and oxygen delivered with blood flow through coronary arteries. If coronary artery is blocked, the blood flow is interrupted, cardiac muscle is not receiving nutrients and oxygen, and this can cause the myocardial infarction and failure of the heart to contract effectively or stop contracting completely – cardiac arrest. The most common cardiac dysfunction is the appearance of atherosclerosis plaques – low density cholesterol deposit inside the artery that lead to decreased or total cessation of the blood flow to different organs.
There is a whole list of factors that can contribute to a development of cardio-vascular diseases:
1. Smoking. The statistical death rate from heart attack in smokers is 2-3 times higher than in non-smokers in the same age group.
2. High blood pressure.
3. Insufficient physical activity. Regular physical exercises promote better cardiovascular health support.
4. Eating greasy food. In the countries where people traditionally eat more fruits and vegetables, and less saturated fat, the number of cardiac diseases is rare in occurrence.
5. Stress. People, who experience stress on a job, are more prone to cardiac diseases.
6. Increased body weight.
7. Low anti-oxidant level in the body.
9. Age. The risk of heart attack increases with age, especially after 45 years.
10. Sex. The statistics shows that cardiac disease happens in women 10 years later than in men, and heart attacks – 20 years later. Scientists attribute this fact to the protective quality of women’s estrogen hormone. The production of estrogen decreases with age, especially during menopause, which increases the risk of heart disease development.
According to cardiologists, the most effective methods of cardiac diseases prophylaxis are: reduction of “bad” cholesterol blood level, control of arterial blood pressure and body weight, physical exercise, proper nutrition, smoking cessation, and dietary supplements for healthy heart.
