Definition and Causes of Chronic Angina
Chronic angina (also stable angina) is a syndrome that is manifested as chest pain emerging when it becomes hard for the heart to work. It occurs due to discrepancy between the requirements of the myocardium in oxygen and the possibilities of its delivery. The cause of angina pectoris, as well as ischemic heart disease, is the atherosclerosis-induced narrowing of the coronary vessels. Angina attacks develop with a narrowing of the lumen diameter of the coronary arteries by 50-70%. The more serious atherosclerotic stenosis, the more severe angina occurs. Although attacks of the disease usually develop suddenly, vascular lesions can develop gradually over years.
Is melatonin is a risk-free hormone for pregnant women?22 May of 2017
Some patients with sleep problems know already that melatonin treats insomnia perfectly. In fact, this substance is not a medicine, but our own hormone, produced in the brain. It is manufactured in the form or natural supplements.
What is it – melatonin?
It is a natural regulator of sleep. With the onset of darkness epiphysis secrets it, and in the light this process is inhibited. With age melatonin synthesis gradually decreases. Scientists believe that young people suffer from insomnia less than the older generation. Melatonin efficiently relieves the symptoms of the time zone change syndrome, reduces anxiety, eliminates symptoms of sedative withdrawal and increases the number of platelets. There is a suggestion that taking supplements with melatonin also helps people with fibromyalgia and patients complaining of hot flushes. The result of the experiments shows that melatonin in low dosages speeds up falling asleep and normalizes the internal biorhythms of the body. It does not have the toxic effect typical for other sleeping pills. In addition, melatonin improves overall health, strengthens immunity and protects it against free radicals. Meanwhile, it affects the other hormones including those that are important for reproduction.
Thus many females waiting for a baby ask: “Is melatonin safe for pregnancy”?

However, incorrect or uncontrolled use of antibiotics can result in adverse effect.
