The Shocking “Hidden” Cause Behind Sudden Cardiac Arrest …

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States—and all over the world. For men and women … across most ethnicities; heart disease doesn’t discriminate when it comes to victims.

And while the medical community has made remarkable strides in terms of treating and preventing the consequences of long-term heart disease, the harsh reality is that little progress has been made when it comes to the phenomenon of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is responsible for 50% of the deaths attributed to heart disease; and it strikes with little to no warning.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the reason why otherwise perfectly healthy people can simply “drop dead” from an unexpected heart attack.

It can strike regardless of age, fitness or health. Notable athletes like Olympic Volleyballer Flo Hyman … Basketball player Hank Gathers … even Celtics player Reggie Smith—all succumbed to Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the prime of their lives.

But a barrage of new medical studies from physicians and the American Heart Association are finally shedding light on one of the surprising “hidden” causes behind Sudden Cardiac Arrest …

What we know about Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is usually caused by an electrical disturbance within the body that disrupts the heart’s regular action. And once the heart stops pumping, blood stops flowing, with death soon following.

This happens to about 1,000 people each day in America alone, and only 5% will survive the event. Of these cases, the large majority (75%) are male.

By contrast, in a healthy heart, the minerals Magnesium and Potassium will regulate and manage your heart’s electrical signaling via the mineral “channels” in your cardiac cells.

So scientists decided to take a deeper look at these minerals and turned up a shocking discovery;

They found that men with higher testosterone levels were 25% less likely to suffer Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

They were also able to demonstrate a clear link between lower testosterone levels and the abnormal EKG readings that predispose certain people to Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

This 2014 research confirmed the findings of a litany of studies which link lower testosterone to higher overall rates of cardiac disease—identifying a key primary risk factor for an otherwise unpredictable condition.

 

Confirming the American Heart Association’s Findings

Just one year prior—in 2013—a similar study was published, linking testosterone and cardiovascular disease in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Coming to the same conclusions regarding the health risks of Low Testosterone, the American Heart Association elaborated even further, explaining that low levels of testosterone in men are also associated with:

  • Increased risk of developing coronary artery disease
  • Type II diabetes
  • Increase in stubborn belly fat
  • Insulin resistance
  • Narrowing (stenosis) of the Carotid Arteries
  • Obesity
  • Abnormal EKG (electrocardiogram) results
  • Angina pectoris (pain in chest caused by reduced blood flow to heart)
  • Increased body mass index
  • More severe congestive heart failure
  • Higher rates of all-cause and cardiac mortality (death)

 

These findings shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who understands how testosterone (and other key hormones) work within the body …

After all, our hormones work as chemical “messengers,” controlling virtually every aspect of our physiology. They help to increase muscle mass, manage fat & cholesterol levels, stimulate libido and keep our minds focused. Even dopamine and serotonin—our body’s “Happy Chemicals”—rely on hormones to keep us in a good mood.

And the only way to know your individual hormone levels is to have them tested by a specialist, proactively (which is crucial for every man and woman over thirty).

It’s not the kind of thing that can be guessed or diagnosed by the average physician—and 95% of those stricken with Sudden Cardiac Arrest won’t get a second chance.

 

Don’t Worry; There’s a Solution if You’re “At Risk”

If you are suffering from reduced testosterone levels and at risk of suffering the conditions listed above, there’s a solution …

It’s called “Hormone Replacement Therapy” (or HRT) and it’s the ultimate answer for men suffering from common hormone deficiencies and imbalances.  

Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to prevent these kinds of consequences by safely and scientifically restoring your body’s hormone levels—helping you feel happier, healthier, and more alive than you have in years.

Using hormones that are bioidentical to your own—all the way down to the molecular level—medical specialists can help you turn back the clock and virtually erase decades of aging in a matter of weeks …
