Just over half (51%) of adults are still not aware that heart disease is the biggest health-related cause of death in the UK, according to research from Sirco, a scientifically proven drink to help maintain cardiovascular health and benefit circulation of the blood.
As a consequence of this lack of awareness, 20% of all British adults have never done anything to actively try to improve their heart health.
And, despite the fact that heart disease is one of the main causes of death in the UK, less than half of adults say they exercise more, while 39% have cut down on their intake of saturated fats, and 37% have cut down on their salt intake.
Beverley Brealey, from Sirco, said: “It is disturbing that awareness of the dangers of heart disease is still very low. More worrying is that as a nation we are not doing enough to look after our heart health and taking simple precautions, such as diet and exercise.”
While there are plenty of products on the market to reduce cholesterol, Sirco is a simple and no hassle way to improve platelet function and prevent blood clots. Sirco contains water soluble tomato concentrate, which contributes to healthy blood flow.
Sirco is made from natural ingredients and contains only naturally occurring sugars so is an ideal alternative to fruit juice.
Beverley added: “Inspired by the Mediterranean diet, Sirco contains Fruitflow which has an EFSA health claim and is a natural, active ingredient from tomatoes that helps keep the heart healthy from the very day you drink it.
“Sirco prevents the blood in the arteries from getting “sticky”; just like low dose Aspirin but with no side effects. A daily glass of Sirco (about 250ml) contributes to normal healthy blood flow. It also works within three hours of drinking and lasts up to 18 hours in the blood, so it takes no hassle.”
Sirco is available on QVC, in 334 large Sainsbury’s Superstores, Ocado, Amazon, independent health stores and for more details log on to: www.sircoheart.com.
