When we talk about Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease, the stories in your head automatically go to your dad, or grandpa, or and older man in your life. You think of a male figure. It’s not often that the words Dementia, or Alzheimer’s, are mentioned in the same sentence as mom or grandma. But, more and more we’re seeing these diseases popping up in women…

Women who develop high blood pressure in their 40s could be much more vulnerable to dementia later in life, a new study suggests.

New studies are showing how high blood pressure can play a crucial role in how the brain progresses with age….

According to WebMD:

A healthy circulatory system is key to a healthy brain, said Keith Fargo, director of scientific programs and outreach for the Alzheimer’s Association.

“The brain is a very metabolically active organ in the body. It requires an outsized amount of oxygen and other nutrients,” said Fargo, who wasn’t involved with the study. “Because of that, there’s a very, very rich blood delivery system in the brain. Anything that happens to compromise that is going to compromise the overall health and function of the brain.”

…women who developed high blood pressure in their 40s did have an increased risk of dementia, even after the researchers adjusted for other factors like smoking, diabetes and excess weight.

L-Arginine

It’s crucial that you talk to your doctor about how L-arginine might be able to help you lower high blood pressure, especially with diet and exercise.

L-arginine has been clinically proven to increase vasodilation, or the widening of the arteries, which has been shown to lower blood pressure and help with cholesterol levels.

If you are living with hypertension, or pre-hypertension, please talk to your doctor about adding L-arignine and Cardio Juvenate Plus to your daily routine.
