How can arterial stiffness be improved?

Arteries can stiffen with an unhealthy lifestyle; typically this can begin when an individual is in their 20’s or 30’s, although the more prominent symptoms don’t tend to appear until an individual is in their 40’s.

Therefore, the BioClip® Cuff testing device can offer you the chance to see changes in your stiffness index, to alert you to take changes in your lifestyle and diet and then monitor those improvements you are making- to enable you to keep your arteries in the best possible condition.

Typically all of the following methods have been documented to help improve arterial condition:

  1. Make sure you get proper sleep.
  2. Don’t smoke or consume narcotics.
