Stress can lead to increased levels of cardiovascular problems. This can happen through stress-related increases in blood pressure (hypertension ). It can also happen because people under stress may be more likely to engage in unhealthy activities such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating unhealthy comfort foods. In due course, these factors conspire to increase the risk of incapacity and even death from high blood pressure, strokes, and heart attacks.
It’s now possible to find out how damaged key arteries deep inside the body are by using a non-invasive, quick, painless test called the Bio Test. The Bio Test measures the speed of the pulse wave, in meters per second. In order that you can best understand your result the Bio Test displays it by converting the speed to biological age. To better understand the concept of speed of pulse wave travel, imagine two identical sized tubes side by side at a slight angle to the floor, the first one is made of smooth hard metal and the second one of soft rubber. If you were to drop a golf ball down the metal tube it would find little or no resistance and would consequently hit the ground very fast. However when dropped down the rubber tube the flexibility and softness of the tube would make the ball take longer to hit the ground. Likewise stiff arteries present less resistance and consequently the pulse wave travels faster.
