Cardio Health Formula's Heart-Strengthening Nutrients

The heart is without a doubt, the hardest working (and probably most important!) organ in your body. As such, it also requires specific nutrients in order for it to function optimally.  And if you’re a regular exerciser, your heart works a lot harder than the average person’s.

Cardio Health provides the key amino acids, vitamins, minerals and botanicals that it needs for protecting, preserving and strengthening heart tissue.  This translates into improved cellular energy production in the heart, and also helps maintain a healthy blood pressure.  Each of these nutrients has been clinically shown to increase cardiac function and  reduce the risk of vascular disease in those at risk.

Best Uses for Cardio Health:

  • People who struggle with high blood pressure

  • People with high cholesterol

  • Improving overall cardiovascular health

  • High intensity/Endurance athletes who want extra support


Here’s How It Works:

Cardio Health Formula CoEnzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound found in all cells - however it is found in especially high concentrations in the heart.  It serves numerous purposes; the most important being that is vital for the production of the body’s energy currency, ATP.  In other words, it’s instrumental in produce large amounts of energy for the ever-working heart muscle.

L-carnitine is an amino acid which also plays a central role in cellular energy production.  It is essential for transporting fatty acids into the cell’s powerhouse (mitochondria) where they are then oxidized for energy.  Carnitine deficiency leads to decreased energy production and an increased risk of heart disease and angina.

Taurine is an amino acid found in high metabolism tissues like the heart.  Taurine can boost left ventricular function, without affecting blood pressure. It’s been shown to be beneficial in people with high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, perhaps to it’s energizing effect on the heart tissue. 

Vitamin B5 (D-Calcium Pantothenate) is required for metabolism of food energy derived from carbohydrates, proteins and lipids (fats).  It’s included in the formula to assure a steady source of energy metabolites to the heart.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate and Pyridoxine HCl) is another vitamin that has a central role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.  Decreased levels of pyridoxine is associated with elevated levels of C-reactive protein, which is in turn can be a marker of inflammation in the body that is implicated in cardiovascular disease.

Magnesium is involved throughout the body in a number of enzyme systems. Decreased concentration of magnesium (with elevated levels of calcium) is associated with hypertension.

Potassium is an important cardiovascular mineral and required for normal blood pressure. When magnesium is depleted, potassium levels decline as well.

Hawthorne berry contains a number of heart-specific compounds that impart hypotensive (blood pressure lowering) and anti-arrhythmic activity.

Gynostemma Pentaphyllum (Jiaogulan) has broad cardiovascular benefits including the ability to lower cholesterol, increase oxygen absorption and increasing cardiac output.

Cardio Health Formula provides you with the essential nutrients your heart needs to stay strong and perform at it’s peak. It’s an ideal formula for anyone who puts a lot of stress on their heart through activity and training.
