Study on Function of SoftenClean Capsule in Lowering Hyperlipidemia Risk, Treating Unstable Angina and Its Protecting Effects on Vascular Endothelium

Authors: Wenfeng Chung, Fujun Yan, Seth Martin and Wendy Ying – ABSTRACT Objective: To observe the clinical effect and protection of vascular endothelium of SoftenClean Capsule (SCC) in middle-aged and senior people with unstable angina and hyperlipidemia. Methods: Six hundred and fifty patients with unstable angina were randomly divided into SCC group (340 cases) and control group (310 cases). Conventional statin therapy was given to both groups, with SCC group receiving additional SCC treatment. Data […]

What Are The Causes and Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure

What causes heart failure? Heart failure is caused by many conditions that damage the heart muscle, including: Coronary artery disease (CAD), a disease of the arteries that supply blood and oxygen to the heart, causes decreased blood flow to the heart muscle. If the arteries become blocked or severely narrowed, the heart becomes starved for oxygen and nutrients. Heart attack. A heart attack occurs when a coronary artery becomes suddenly blocked, stopping the flow of […]

Rather, it means that the heart’s pumping power is weaker than normal. Blood […]

Cholesterol and Congestive Heart Disease

“There is absolutely no correlation between saturated fat intake, cholesterol levels, and heart disease. The most accurate research looking at this issue in different countries is the MONICA (Monitoring of Trends and Determinants in Cardiovascular Disease) study that started in the mid-1980s and is run by the World Health Organization. If you look at the figures, it’s extremely clear that the countries whose populations have the highest saturated fat intake tend to have slightly higher cholesterol levels, but all have […]
