Strengthen Blood Vessels

Tuesday, 13 December 2011 08:00 AM

Question: I lost two good friends to ruptured aneurisms, one cerebral and one aortic. Is there any natural supplement to strengthen blood vessels?
Dr. Hibberd's Answer:
Aneurysms are ballooning in the artery walls. They develop as a result of thinning and degeneration because certain sections of the artery walls become weaker. As such, specific lifestyle modifications could help you prevent forming aneurysms. They include not smoking, limiting caffeine intake, avoiding straining (forced exertion), eating a healthy diet, and following a regular moderate exercise routine.
Garlic and the herb ginkgo biloba are natural supplements that are rich in antioxidants and have been known to protect and strengthen the lining of the blood vessels. You could include these in your diet to prevent atherosclerosis which damages the lining of the blood vessels.
