5 OF OUR FAVORITE HEART HEALTHY SUPPLEMENTS
Every day, our heart beats 100,000 times, sending 2,000 gallons of blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels. It is crucial that our hearts are functioning optimally to ensure whole body health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. When it comes to promoting the health of the heart, we typically recommend healthy lifestyle changes in support with food-based or herbal supplementation.
At Wholebody, we have seen great results with these heart healthy supplements:
Garlic is known to be a heart healthy food because it contains a beneficial compound called Allicin. When attempting to achieve therapeutic benefits from garlic, you must crush or chew a few cloves of garlic followed by 8 ounces of water. Unfortunately, our stomach enzymes can inhibit the beneficial Allicin compound. This is why we recommend a convenient supplement that is enteric coated to ensure effective results. By extracting these beneficial compounds from fresh garlic bulbs, we are able to create a potent and effective garlic supplement. These compounds help maintain normal cholesterol levels and support cardiovascular system health. Garlic Forte is also know to support immune system health as well as a healthy respiratory tract. Save the overwhelming garlic breath and consider Garlic Forte supplementation, where each tablet consists of 12 milligrams of Allicin.
Hawthorn is a plant that has been used in cases of heart disease since the 1st century. Starting in the 1800s, it has been used for centuries to relieve circulatory and respiratory conditions. The beneficial substances in this plant are called flavonoids. These flavonoids may help dilate blood vessels, improve blood flow, and protect blood vessels.
MediHerbs Hawthorn supplements contain oligomeric procyanidins, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds. The substances in Hawthorn work together to support healthy functioning of the heart muscle, help promote cardiovascular system health, and provide antioxidant activity.
Cardiotrophin PMG provides a unique profile of minerals, nucleotides, and peptides that support the heart and cardiovascular system. This product is essential to heart function because it supports normal heart cell growth and differentiation. It supports heart and muscle function where repair or maintenance is needed. It is also essential for any autoimmune insult related to the heart and musculature. It is effective in the utilization of glucose in the muscle, especially for diabetics and should be taken just before sleep. It is the best source of naturally occurring coenzyme Q10 (essential to the electron system and oxidative phosphorylation), and it increases the energy metabolism of the muscle (ATP), needed in myoneural junction disorders.
Cardio-Plus supports the healthy functioning of the heart and other muscles. It also supports healthy coronary blood flow and provides ingredients with antioxidant activity. It supports increased oxygen demand during exercise while providing a good source of vitamin C. It is known to supports nerve, muscle and overall cardiovascular maintenance. We use this product often in cases of abnormal blood pressure, heart weakness, and angina pectoris. Cardio-Plus provides important elements of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP.Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. Therefore, those organs with the highest energy requirements-such as the heart and the liver-have and need the highest CoQ10 concentrations.
Cataplex E is a combination of vitamin E, selenium, and a proprietary blend of beneficial substances. This product supports cells and cell processes as well as healthy thyroid function. It provides ingredients with antioxidant activity, and supports cell signaling and regulation of gene expression. It is known to promote tissue repair rate, act as a nerve relaxant, while also increasing cellular activity and tissue response to stress.
Want to learn more about your heart through our Heart Sound Recorder?
Your heart is the most important muscle in the body. The HSR evaluates the nutritional efficiency of the heart. To function optimally, it is vital that the heart has the proper nutrients to maintain its correct rate, rhythm, and tone. The Heart Sound Recorder is a general wellness cardiac stress monitor that in return reflects the efficiency and deficiencies of heart function. Through the use of the HSR, we can measure the heart sound as a reflection of balanced body chemistry, nutrition, and overall function of the body’s systems. The HSR looks at your heart function as a window to health and longevity.
