Description

Cardio Health Support formula provides the foundation for a healthy cardiovascular system by supplying the many nutrients, herbs, and other cofactors that help protect against the damaging effects of free radicals and homocysteine and help support cardiovascular function.

FUNCTIONS

The average heart beats approximately 100,000 times a day, pumping close to 2,000 gallons of blood through its chambers. This level of activity requires significant nutritional support. In addition to the heart’s nutritional needs, compounds like free radicals and homocysteine are a constant threat to its health and function. Cardio Health Support can be regarded as two separate formulas – nutritional support for metabolic requirements and protective support to fend off free radicals and lower homocysteine levels.

Nutritional support starts with magnesium, which helps support normal heart rhythm. Since the heart’s primary fuel source is fatty acids, carnitine is added to assist in fatty acid metabolism. The heart has some of the highest concentrations of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in the body. Without CoQ10, the heart – and the rest of the body – ceases to function. Hawthorn has traditionally been used for heart conditions and there is evidence to suggest that it exerts and inotropic effect that may help support heart function. Like hawthorn, the amino acid taurine helps regulate the contractile force of heart muscle. Additional studies demonstrate that taurine may reduce the secretion of apolipoprotein B100, a compound that is considered a major risk factor for heart disease.

The protective function of Cardio Health Support stems from the blend of antioxidants and nutrients to lower homocysteine levels. Vitamins E and C are important fat- and water-soluble antioxidants respectively. Other antioxidants include green tea, grape seed extract, citrus bioflavonoids, and CoQ10. Horsechestnut contains several compounds shown to support healthy vascular function and tone. Vitamins B-6, B-12, and folic acid help to maintain healthy levels of homocysteine. Finally, numerous studies on niacin and soy support their roles in supporting healthy cholesterol levels.
