What Is Cardiovascular Endurance?

Cardiovascular endurance measures how well a person can perform exercises that involve their entire body at a moderate to high intensity for an extended time. Improving your cardiovascular endurance makes it easier to accomplish daily tasks and activities without strain. Most importantly, cardiovascular endurance is one important measure of overall heart health.

Here, I’ll highlight the importance of cardiovascular endurance and introduce the potential health benefits  of Angelica (Aralia elata) herbal extract.

Cardiovascular Endurance Support: Try Angelica

Scientific research suggests that regular consumption of Aralia elata (Angelica) herbal extract may increase cardiovascular endurance. The constituents of Angelica support the function of the heart under stress. Specifically, Angelica is thought to protect cardiac muscle from hypoxia (low oxygen) damage. Angelica also supports the mitochondria in cardiac cells. By increasing hypoxia tolerance Angelica allows an athlete to exercise harder for longer. This can improve the overall health of the heart.

Saponins and polyphenols in Angelica show a clear dose dependent anti-fatigue effect. The antioxidant properties of these constituents may reduce free radical accumulation and thus slow down the rapid declination of exercise capacity when doing sports. Increasing exercise capacity can help improve overall heart health in those who participate in exercise programs.

In addition to supporting cardiovascular endurance, Angelica may adaptogenically modulate the calcium and potassium channels involved in heart function. It may help to reduce cardiac dysfunction and pathological damage to cardiac muscle caused by imbalances in Ca2+ channel current and the transient outward K+ channel current.

Heart Health Benefits

Used regularly, Angelica (Aralia elata) herbal extract may improve the heart’s ability to function during stress. This can enable the heart to become stronger with less risk of damage to the heart muscle during strenuous exercise. The plant is well recognized as being an adaptogen with specific benefits to heart health. It may help moderate blood pressure and regulate the heartbeat rate. Having the heart work in optimal health can improve overall physical wellbeing and performance.

Aralia elata has a long tradition of use in Asia. Much of what we know about the plant and its benefits comes to us via the Russian pharmacopeia. This body of reference material sits at a unique intersection of eastern and western medicine. During the Soviet era, for example, scientists conducted a great deal of research on performance improving plants. In many of these studies, Angelica stood out for its ability to improve cardiovascular endurance.

Polysaccharides in the herbal extract may also reduce oxidative stress, thus helping to restore the metabolism of biological macromolecules. This helps to enhance proper coronary blood flow and cellular energy, which boosts the cardiovascular endurance of the heart.

According to a study published in Phytomedicine, “Promising stress-relieving effects of Aralia are reported for people whose work requires a high level of attention. Its proposed ability to moderate stress-induced damage and dysfunction in the cardiovascular tissue might make Aralia the adaptogen of choice among patients with higher risk for cardiovascular diseases.”
