In a study of nearly 4,000 people, owning a cat significantly reduced the risk of dying from a stroke over a 20-year period.1

Animals are natural stress-busters. Owning and stroking a pet cat or dog can not only help reduce the risk of a stroke, but it can also help reduce blood pressure and improve your mood. 

If you have a pet that you can take for a walk, then you are generally healthier than those who do not, thanks to all that enforced exercise, thanks to your four-legged friend. 

Adio features a wide range of different tools to help to lower your blood pressure and risk of heart disease, including our free total health reset, Refresh. Refresh is a 30-day programme to kick-start a better way of eating, with foods to nourish, replenish and rebalance your body. The guide features detailed explanations of why we need to choose the right foods, what those are and how to make better choices and a range of recipes to suit even the most fussy eaters. 

We also have exercise videos and in-depth articles that cover modern medical science and how that can help with heart health and stroke reduction and alternative ways to protect your heart, from ancient and Eastern medicine. 

We also have a pet health area and group, so you can learn more about taking care of your pets’ health too. As a nation of animal lovers, we are constantly looking for the best ways to protect the life and health of our animal companions. We have natural vets on hand who can advise on different approaches to pet health, and a group, where you can connect and chat with other animal-loving Adio members.

Discover what an Adio membership can do for you (and your pets) when you choose to take advantage of our free trial.
