Heart health consists of these four conditions are associated with heart disease, cardiovascular disease: atherosclerosis, insulin resistance, high homocysteine and angina pectoris.
Atherosclerosis is a condition in which cholesterol-rich plaque builds up along the arterial walls.
Get more exercise.
This will help maintain the health of the vessels leading to the heart, as well as strengthening the heart muscle itself.
Eat a low-glycemic diet.
b. Nutrition and Supplements
Fish oil. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish and fish oil supplements have been shown to be an effective preventive strategy against heart disease. They can lower triglyceride levels, increase HDL cholesterol, help minimize inflammation and blood clotting, and keep blood vessels healthy. Our products, OmegAvail Synergy and XanthOmega Krill Oil.
Coenzyme Q10 (our product Q-Evail). This antioxidant is thought to be one of the most important antioxidant supplements for protection against many forms of cardiovascular disease. It helps protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation, maintain healthy blood vessels, protect against clots and plaque rupture, and support optimal functioning of the heart muscle.
However, one’s ability to convert ubiquinone from Coenzyme Q10 to ubiquinol may diminish with age and with increased oxidative stress in certain individuals. Therefore, these individuals would want to take the product CoQnol. CoQnol™ is a non-GMO form of ubiquinol, which is the reduced, antioxidant form of CoQ10. Both ubiquinone and ubiquinol are critical to the cellular ATP (energy) production cycle. Without the presence of both ubiquinone and ubiquinol within the body’s cells, cellular energy cannot be generated or sustained.
Resveratrol with Quercetin (our product Resveratrol Supreme). This antioxidant combination has demonstrated in research to be cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective at nutritional doses.
2. High Homocysteine
A high homocysteine level is primarily a sign of an inadequate intake of folic acid or vitamin B6. In short, if you don’t have enough of certain critical B vitamins, your homocysteine level can rise. At elevated levels, homocysteine is thought to contribute to plaque formation by damaging the arterial wall. High levels may also act on platelets and increase the risks of clot formation. Our product Homocysteine Supreme
a. Nutrition and Lifestyle
Genetics. There are genetic variations in folic acid absorption and utilization. Some individuals therefore need much more folic acid than the RDA of 400 mcg in a genetically acceptable form.
Stress. Epinephrine and norephinephrine are stress-induced neurotransmitters. Their metabolism in the liver involves methylation, a process that uses methyl groups, and can increase need for methyl donors like folic acid.
Coffee consumption. As coffee consumption increases, homocysteine levels increase.
Inadequate amounts of folic acid, vitamin B6 or vitamin B12 in an absorbable form. Our products Liposomal B Supreme or B Supreme caps or Primal Multi.
3. Insulin Resistance and the Heart
The biggest roadblock to weight loss is blood sugar. So many of us just eat too many carbohydrates and our blood sugar gets way too high. When blood sugar is high, your body changes the sugar into fatty acids and sends it to storage in your fat cells. And then you get FAT!
If you have been in this high blood sugar cycle, then your cells may not be able to use sugar anymore.
This causes high blood sugar, high insulin, and high triglycerides that transition into a diagnosis of diabetes, or pre-diabetes, or insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome. There are lots of names for this problem.
Berberine One of the top supplements for helping your cells to learn how to use sugar is called Berberine. Studies have shown that Berberine (a component found in Indian Berries) can help to lower blood sugar and insulin and decrease triglycerides. Our products Berb-Evail or Berberine Synergy.
Alpha-lipoic acid This antioxidant nutrient improves the cells’ response to insulin and can help stabilize blood sugar levels. Our products Berberine Synergy or Lipoic Acid Supreme
