Pump up your heart health



Your “ticker”, it’s the one muscle in the human body that none of us can afford to ignore. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for one in three deaths, and is the number one killer of American men and women. That’s why February is American Heart Health month, and is a great time to evaluate what you are doing to improve yours! Healthy diet and exercise are the best weapons available to fight cardiovascular disease. Exercise can serve to make your heart stronger and more efficient, lower your blood pressure, reduce high cholesterol, and decrease your weight.  Along those same lines, eating a well-rounded, healthy diet can control weight, and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to keep your heart at its peak operating efficiency. Sometimes though, diet and exercise are not enough.  No matter how hard we try, issues like high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure can prove to be stubborn, and we need some outside help. While there are many prescription drug options for cardiovascular issues, many people may not be aware of some supplements which may help to support and improve the overall health of your heart:

High Cholesterol:

  • Mega-10: A combination omega supplement which provides both Omega 3 and Omega 7 essential fatty acids, which helps to support cardiovascular health and cholesterol levels

  • Cholesterol Complete: A specialized formula designed to manage and promote health cholesterol levels in the body, as well as healthy homocysteine levels, a marker of heart disease

High Blood Pressure:

  • Perfusia SR: a form of the amino acid, arginine, which has been shown to help relax the arteries,  leading to decrease in blood pressure and better overall heart health

Overall Heart Support:

  • H2Q: a specialized form a Coenzyme Q10, which is a powerful antioxidant and helps to support energy production in all muscle tissue, including the heart

  • Cardiogenics Intensive Care: a comprehensive blend of herbs, amino acids, and minerals that help to maintain healthy blood pressure and heart muscle function

So whether your “ticker” is in top notch shape, or could use a little extra “TLC”, February is a great time to keep heart health on the mind!
