Foods for vascular health ratchet up eating habits’ power to slow artery stiffening. That’s part of how people can be the same age, but differ in “vascular aging”.
This is more than just an interesting concept. – Vascular aging affects heart and brain health even before atherosclerosis and high blood pressure develop, and predicts your risk of heart attack and stroke.
As you get older, your blood vessels show aging by becoming stiffer, less able to relax and contract as they should, and more prone to inflammation and thickening of the walls. But people differ in how fast this vascular aging develops.
So it’s worth looking at how your eating habits may be affecting the aging of your blood vessels.
