Just a quick note to say hi! Healthyself2, Saw your comments to a post (can't remember which) and tend to agree with most on your profile. Let me introduce myself: I'm 82 years old and had bypass 13 years ago which left me with hemiplegia (right side limp and no use of hand). Recovered somewhat, but angina came back a few years ago. Just started taking SEANOL with TREMENDOUS results. Will have to see what second month brings, but NO angina first month after daily or weekly attacks.Suspect having small veins contributes to angina.
