Your cardiovascular system is made up of your heart, blood, and blood vessels. These provide a vital network for the transportation of nutrients, gases, metabolic waste and chemical messages throughout your body. The life and performance of every single one of your cells is therefore essentially bound to the health of your cardiovascular system.
There are a number of circumstances that can negatively impact the efficiency of your circulatory system. One main reason for the normal loss of cardiovascular integrity is the age related decline in your hearts energy production caused but mitochondrial dysfunction. Other key limiting factors are progressive arterial damage arising from free radical assault and the destabilization of normal triglycerides, lipoprotein and sugar levels in your blood.
