Purple Corn Lutein and Atherosclerosis

imagesAtherosclerosis is a diseases of the arteries. It is characterized by plaques of fatty material clinging to the arterial inner walls. As the patient eats more fatty food high in cholesterol, the plaques thicken and the pathway of the blood decreases in diameter. As this decrease in diameter progresses (vasoconstriction), atherosclerosis makes the patient hypertensive. And once the pathway closes with fatty deposits, a fatal stroke occurs.

Stroke can either be a heart attack or a cerebral hemorrhage or stroke. A heart attack due to stroke means a blood vessel near the heart (or to the heart) is totally blocked or has ruptured. A brain stroke means a blood vessel near the brain (or to the brain) is totally blocked or has ruptured.

The remedy for atherosclerosis is to widen the portion of the blood vessel where the blockage is building up without damaging the blood vessel. Some synthetic vasodilatory medicines that dilate (enlarge) blood vessels through a ballooning action can later make the vessel brittle and crack, in danger of suddenly rupturing or creating a fissure.

Thus, the better remedy is to take purple corn supplements regularly. Purple corn lutein does 3 things to remedy atherosclerosis:

  1. Promote blood vessel health to firm it up and prevent rupturing.
  2. Enable the blood vessel to be flexible for a ballooning effect when vasodilation happens.
  3. Prevent eventual cracking up of blood vessels.

When your blood vessels are stressed by fluctuating blood pressure (rising and lowering from time to time), they sometimes sustain light cracks. Fat deposits later cling to the cracks in the interior walls of blood vessels and build up there. Sometimes, calcium deposits join them, toughening the resulting plaque on the wall. When that happens, you have chronic hypertension, or long-term hypertension. This often creates complications on the kidneys. The more you need to take purple corn supplements regularly.

Purple corn anthocyanin can gradually lessen the clogs in your blood vessels through its antioxidant action. There are times when purple corn gets rid of the atherosclerosis and the patient is set free from hypertension. This however depends on several factors:

  1. The regularity of purple corn intake.
  2. The healthy lifestyle of the patient.
  3. The temperament of the patient.
