Is your blood healthy?
Imagine that your body is a car. Your heart is the engine. And your blood is the oil that keeps it running.
If the oil becomes thick like molasses, what happens? It clogs up the system and kills the engine. Right?
Well, that’s what could happen in your body if you have high blood viscosity. Because when your blood is too thick, it puts you at risk for damaged blood vessels, a heart attack, and death.
Most people with this condition turn to blood-thinning drugs, usually aspirin tablets. The drugs come with side effects like ulcers and stomach bleeding. Synthetic blood thinners are even worse. One is Warfarin. It was initially marketed as rat poison. And it’s still used for this purpose. It can put you at risk for excessive bleeding.
Research has shown that people with thicker blood are at greater risk for heart disease, blood circulatory disorders, low/high blood pressure, lymphatic blockages, lymphoma, skin diseases, DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), varicose veins, spider veins, tinnitus, weak eyesight, kidney disorders, strokes, dementia, cancer (via depleted oxygen supplies).
The thickness can be caused by many factors including:
- Lack of oxygen
- Lack or excess of minerals (iron, sodium, potassium, magnesium)
Fluctuating blood sugar levels
- Quality of red blood cells
- Levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL)
- Chronic/acute inflammation
Your blood can also thicken if you smoke, have diabetes, sticky platelets, or genetic/epigenetic sensitivity to thick blood.
Another risk factor is high levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that reflex the level of inflammatory processes in one’s body and has been linked to cardiovascular disease.
