[Alert] Hidden Heart Disease Trigger Discovered in Women!
Heart disease doesn’t discriminate.
While most people think that it primarily impacts men, the reality is that heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the US.
But there’s a certain trigger that can send your risk skyrocketing. And it’s not high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or stress.
Yet it’s something that impacts up to 75 percent of all women.
Knowing if you’re at risk can help you take the necessary steps to stay healthy—and alive.
At some point in time, all women go through “the change.”
And for 75 percent of those women, hot flashes are a part of that transition.
For some, they’re merely uncomfortable. For others, these sudden increases in body temperature are so severe that it can make it difficult to function.
But either way, they’re still considered benign.
But instead of viewing them as a symptom of menopause, you should view them as a warning sign of something much worse.
After reviewing data on over 23,000 women, researchers found that women who experienced hot flashes or night sweats had a much greater risk of suffering a heart attack.
Postmenopausal women with vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes were 70 percent more likely to have cardiovascular disease.
And experiencing vasomotor symptoms before menopause increased the chances of having a cardiovascular event by 40 percent.
The severity of the hot flashes played a bigger role in the risk than frequency or duration.
In fact, those with the most severe hot flashes were more than twice as likely to experience cardiovascular events than those with no vasomotor symptoms at all.
However you slice it, the connection is clear: Having hot flashes increases your risk of heart problems.
And the connection makes perfect sense.
Hot flashes are technically vasomotor symptoms—which means that they’re related to the constricting or dilating of your blood vessels.
And problems with your blood vessels are the number one cause of heart problems—and ultimately of heart attacks.
So if you’re dealing with hot flashes, don’t just try to fix the symptoms.
Take it as a wake-up call that your heart could be at risk—and take the necessary steps to improve your heart health.
Maintain a healthy weight, get your blood pressure under control naturally, exercise more, reduce stress, and spend more time in the sun.
