Diet to prevent blood viscosity increase

As the age increases, the mechanism of lipid metabolism or blood clotting in the body gradually becomes imbalanced, blood components, blood vessel walls, and blood flow velocity gradually change, resulting in increased blood concentration and viscosity, and accumulation of blood cells. Increased coagulation, decreased blood flow and dispersion, etc., make the blood undergo a qualitative change, which is hyperviscosity. People often feel dizziness, chest tightness, palpitation, shortness of breath, tiredness, and even physical numbness, memory loss, tongue darkness and other symptoms.

There are many reasons for the increase in blood viscosity. In terms of diet, there are several factors that can be summarized:

Ingestion of foods containing high-fat and high-cholesterol foods increases the lipid levels in the blood and exceeds the normal range, causing excess calories in the body to cause hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis. People often mistakenly believe that vegetable oils are more tolerated. In fact, vegetable oils often contain more N-6 unsaturated fatty acids, which will also promote the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins in the plasma, making the blood sticky and prone to atherosclerosis and thrombosis.

The longer the fasting time, the greater the possibility of body fat accumulation. Therefore, there are people who do not eat breakfast or drink water habits, or go to sleep at night to eat sweet foods, very prone to cause platelet activity and increased blood viscosity.

Those who like to eat salty foods, or who are addicted to tobacco or alcohol, or who are emotionally depressed and irritated, can all induce increased blood lipids and blood viscosity.

The key to preventing blood hyperviscosity is to:

1, a reasonable arrangement of diet. Control intake of high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-sugar foods such as egg yolk, crab yellow, animal viscera, fat, sweets, and butter. Pay attention to refreshing low-fat foods, eat more fresh vegetables and fruits with high vitamins, such as tomatoes, onions, leeks, mushrooms, celery, kelp, black fungus, strawberries, grapes, etc., these foods are rich in pyrazine, It can reduce the platelet aggregation rate to less than 50%, which is beneficial to blood dilution, promote flow, and change blood viscosity. In recent years, scientists have confirmed that Ginger contains a special substance. Its chemical structure is similar to that of salicylic acid, and it can reduce the amount of thrombin in the body, thus reducing platelet aggregation.

2, insist on eating breakfast every day. American medical scientists ranked "daily use of breakfast" as the second most important factor in the eight longevity. At the same time, you must avoid too late dinner and eating process.

3, should develop a sufficient amount of drinking habits every day. In particular, fasting in the early morning and drinking some warm water or light green tea before going to bed at night in order to supplement the water in the body will help dilute the blood and keep the blood flowing. It is also helpful to prevent blood viscosity from increasing. Avoid smoke, alcohol, and coffee.

In addition, we should maintain an optimal health condition that is both physically and mentally happy, bleak and elegant. Avoid inappropriate mental stimulation such as dejection, anxiety, depression, irritability, incitement to emotions, and self-depression.

For those who are already in the state of high blood viscosity, besides, they usually stick to diets, eat moderately, change bad living habits, but also use drugs under the guidance of doctors, and do not blindly choose drugs.
