Heart Health Supplements
BioActive Nutrients offers heart health supplements that can help to improve your cardiovascular health. Cardiovascular Health means different things to different people.
For some, it means simply nourishing the heart, itself, for general wellness. Some need blood pressure normalization. For others, it means cholesterol control. Others have been told that their lack of energy is a side effect of a sluggish heart. Whatever your needs are for seeking heart protection, we can help.
Our foundational heart health supplement is called Heart Life. Doctors recommend this product for their patients who either have a family history of heart disease, or simply need to maintain already healthy heart beat and stroke volume. Though it is not a treatment or cure for any disease, the ingredients in Heart Life have been shown time and again to help support overall cardiovascular fitness. While most people have heard of the basic B-vitamins, magnesium, and Co-Q10, they may be less familiar with the cardio-friendly effects of hawthorn, ginger, linden flower, and motherwort, all of which have been found to be incredibly effective by herbalists for centuries.
Our first-line product to help maintain already-healthy blood pressure is Cardio Health. Cardio Health contains a number of herbs, fruits, and natural extracts that have an extraordinary effect on blood pressure. Garlic, hawthorn berry, and Co-Q10 are the most popular heart-friendly nutrients available. We combined them with ginger and grape seed extract for circulation, and a special form of collagen protein from fish that has been shown to have a surprisingly positive effect on blood pressure. Many customers tell us that this is the most effective product of its kind that theyve ever tried.
For maintaining your normal cholesterol, we suggest Red Rice Plus. We knew that red yeast rice extract had been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to help maintain normal blood fats. But even we were surprised by how much more powerful it became when combined with niacin for relaxing blood vessels, and a blend of spices such as cayenne pepper, turmeric, and ginger to help maintain normal inflammation levels. This has become one of the most elite products of its kind in the nutritional industry, and we challenge you to find try it if you have any concerns about a safe, effective way to maintain already-normal cholesterol.
As for individual nutrients, the best of the best are Co-Q10, Ribose, and L-Carnitine.
Co-Q10 is now a staple in doctors offices. Its a nutrient that helps nourish the powerhouses of cells, which are called mitochondria. Nowhere is power more crucial than in the heart - the muscle that never sleeps. Co-Q10 is often depleted when people take a certain class of prescription cholesterol-lowering medication. It seems unthinkable, but this class of medication could actually weaken the heart. This is why doctors are recommending that their heart patients take at least a maintenance dose of Co-Q10 every day. (And the good news is that the only side effect of normal Co-Q10 supplementation seems to be more energy!)
Continuing with the idea of energy and mitochondrial function, another related nutrient is L-Carnitine. There is a lot of hype around this simple amino acid, but heres what it does. Remember that the mitochondria is the power plant of the cell; well, L-Carnitine helps to deliver fats and other nutrients into the mitochondria for the purpose of being used (burned) as fuel. Since the heart uses an extraordinary amount of fuel, L-Carnitine is a staple among nutrition-minded cardiologists. And because of its ability to help the body burn fat for fuel, some have deemed it the weight loss amino acid. Much of this has been over-sold, but the fact is that L-Carnitine is does help the body to be fueled by fat and to help maintain the energy of the heart.
One other energy-boosting, heart health supplement is Ribose. Ribose is a good-guy sugar. (Yes, good sugars do exist!) Its not like table sugar at all, and it doesnt raise blood sugar. What Ribose does is help increase ATP, which is the bodys chemical form of energy. Once again, because the heart uses so much energy, doctors have begun using Ribose to help fuel the heart. But what theyve found is that just as with Co-Q10 and L-Carnitine, people who use Ribose also seem to have more overall energy. In fact, many of our Ribose PLUS customers have no heart issues whatsoever, but instead are taking it because of the huge energy boost it gives them. This is a terrific use for Ribose PLUS, as it is totally safe.
By the way, the PLUS in Ribose PLUS is because we combined high-quality Ribose with high-antioxidant chardonnay grape powder. We did this not only because of the heart-friendly effects of chardonnay grape, but also because scientists we worked with to make Ribose PLUS tell us that there is evidence to suggest that less Ribose is needed when combined with an antioxidant-rich food source, such as grapes. Using less Ribose is great because it can be an expensive nutrient. If we can use less Ribose but have the same effect as higher-dose Ribose, you save money. This is what makes our Ribose PLUS totally unique in the nutrition industry.
So, whether youre needing a broad cardiovascular supplement, or something narrow and specific, or you just want the healthy energy side effects from some of our standard heart health supplements, our broad array of cardio nutrients will put your heart at ease.
