Reverse vascular dysfunction-its possible!!

Short ten minutes walk at work reverses vascular dysfunction. By breaking up desk time with a short  10 minute walk can off-set the harm that prolonged sitting causes to vascular health.

When sitting straight for 6 hours or majority of an eight hour work day, blood flow to legs reduces considerably When there is decreased blood  flow, the friction of the flowing blood on the artery walls called ‘shear stress’ is also reduced. Low levels of shear stress is detrimental and reduce the ability of the artery to dilate.

Dilation is a sign of vascular health. The more the artery can dilate and respond to stimuli, the healthier it is!!
