A stroke occurs when blood flow is interrupted to the brain either by a clot or by a blood vessel that bursts. It is a "brain attack." The brain damage caused by a stroke can rob us of our vitality and independence. ABC News reports that "silent" strokes affect 11 million Americans each year, and by the time people reach their 70s, one in three has a silent stoke every year.
Science Daily informs us that "silent" strokes are common in people over 60, especially in those with high blood pressure. Even though this type of stroke may occur without dramatic symptoms, they have been linked to memory, thinking problems, and a form of dementia.
Since most strokes are preventable, efforts to eliminate risk factors are crucial. The Melaleuca Wellness Guide recommends taking the supplements in Vitality 6 Essentials + Heart. Included in the Vitality 6 package are 4 Essentials and cholesterol-lowing Phytomega Heart Health and ProvexCV. FiberWise is recommended along with multi-health benefiting Coldwater Omega 3.
The addition of ProvexCV to the diet promotes healthy blood pressure levels. Grapes help the muscles of the blood vessels relax, opening the arteries. Studies show that purple grapes stimulate the release of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps our blood vessels relax and dilate, and its presence helps minimizes the buildup of artery blocking plaque.
Grape seed, grape skin, and red wine are increasingly attracting attention as useful additions in the quest for better heart health, and for reducing high blood pressure. A one month study showed that grape seed extract lowered blood pressure and reduced oxidized LDL cholesterol levels.
Grapes are good for the heart, and each bottle of ProvexCV contains the power of 10,000 grapes. Patented ProvexCV not only contains grape seed and grape skin extracts but also research-recommended levels of resveratrol. In addition it contains quercetin, green tea extract, and bromelain.
We can protect our hearts and brains by maintaining a healthy weight and being active. Studies show that moderate to intense exercise can protect against "silent strokes" and also help keep our brains healthy.

For 30 years I had severe migraines. Normally the headache lasted 12 hours, and for that time I couldn't keep any food down. Vomiting was so severe it would leave tiny-dot bruises around my eye area. A doctor told me if I didn't get the headaches under control I would probably have a stroke. Over 8 years ago I became a customer, and the day after a terrible headache I started the Vitality 6 with ProvexCV. That was my last headache!!!! When I reported it to my doctor he told me that somehow I had improved my vascular health. Strokes do run in my family. I have normal blood pressure and take no heart medications, but always take my Vitality 6 with extra Coldwater Omega-3.
