Alcohol is a widely popular drink that is consumed by about two-thirds of the U.S. population. There are three different types of alcohol: beer, wine, and liquor. Beer, being the most popular among the three, and can be traced back since early civilization.
In the Hispanic community alcoholism is prevalent due to acculturation, for socializing, and “temporary relief” of stressful situations such as a loss of a loved one, family and work issues, heartbreak, to name a few. According the NSDUH (National Survey on Drug Use and Health) 2.6 million Hispanics age 12 and older need alcoholism treatment annually.
Unfortunately, one of the health issues that arise from drinking alcohol is heart disease. According to ISPUB.com (Internet Scientific Publications) heart disease is the leading cause of mortality among the Hispanic population in USA. Heavy drinking as well as moderate drinking may be a risk for heart disease. WebMD™ states in an article, “12-health-risks-of-chronic-heavy-drinking”, heavy drinking makes platelets (blood cells that help control bleeding) more likely to clump together into blood clots, which can cause a heart attack or stroke. It can also cause cardiomyopathy (heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick, or rigid), atrial fibrillation (an irregular and often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow to the body), and ventricular fibrillation (heart rhythm problem that occurs when the heart beats with rapid, erratic electrical impulses).
Make the right choice and take care of your heart today! All you have to do is take Natura-Genics® Anti-Alcoholism Kit™. This is a combination of natural supplements such as B vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids and a 1 oz liquid herbal extract to help with alcohol cravings. It can be combined with Formula CT™ and Red Yeast Rice, which help avoid blood clots.
In order to achieve optimum health you have to discipline yourself by drinking plenty of water not alcohol, eating healthy (living foods), exercising regularly, resting, as well as taking the recommended supplements.
