Insulin Resistance & High blood pressure.
The mechanism is unclear, but studies suggest that the worse the blood pressure, the worse the insulin resistance.
Insulin Resistance and Blood Vessels
If you’re overweight, there is a fair chance that the cells in your body are resistant to the insulin produced by your pancreas. According to a 1988 review in the journal Diabetes, 25 percent of non-obese people also exhibit insulin resistance. When your body doesn’t respond normally to insulin, your pancreas produces more of this hormone to keep your blood glucose under control. According to Dr. Gerald Reaven, professor emeritus in medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, this compensatory rise in insulin damages the lining of your arteries, because insulin tends to make your arteries “stickier” and more attractive to white blood cells that cause inflammation.
Inflammation, Cholesterol Plaques and High Blood Pressure
With time, inflammation created by white cells adhering to your arterial walls makes the arteries less pliable. This loss of elasticity increases your blood pressure – much like forcing water through a rigid pipe generates higher pressures than pushing it through an expandable rubber hose. Additionally, inflammation of the arterial lining sets the stage for the formation of cholesterol plaques, which narrow the arteries and further increase blood pressure.
Putting It All Together
Since 1988, physicians have recognized the link between metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease, says the journal Diabetes. Insulin’s contribution to arterial inflammation, increased blood pressure and atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is well established. As more Americans develop metabolic syndrome, the incidence of heart disease is expected to rise. Reducing your insulin levels and your risk for heart disease may involve lifestyle changes that include weight loss, regular exercise, a diet that includes fewer sugars and processed foods and, perhaps, medications.
To increase blood flow and reduce your blood pressure the healthy way, you can use the Manna Blood Circulation Support tablets. However, to reduce insulin secretion in the body, you need to take the Manna Blood Sugar Support caplets with every meal. This product not only controls blood sugar levels, but assist the body to require less insulin production from the pancreas.
