As an Adult dietary supplement take 1 to 2 capsules per day or as directed by your Health Care Practitioner.
Some ingredients may be better absorbed if there is some fat present in the digestive tract. Take with food for better results.For additional heart protection exercise regularly (consult your health care practitioner for guidance) and maintain a healthy weight. Include Cardio CVS as part of a healthy diet.
Warning: Many heart medications interact with foods and natural supplement ingredients. Be sure to consult a health care professional before changing your diet or adding supplements to your health care regime.
Cardio CVS is designed to support multiple aspects of cardiovascular health.The vascular system is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to cells, and removing cell waste and carbon monoxide. Heart and circulatory health can be negatively impacted by a poor diet, heavy weight, or certain genetic factors. Atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, and weak heart are just some of the problems that put heart health at risk, affecting not just risk for heart attack and stroke but overall health. Homocysteine may increase platelet aggregation, encourage oxidation of LDL Cholesterol, and encourage atherosclerosis. Folic Acid (B9), B6 and B12 Vitamins work together as metholyzing agents which reduce homocysteine levels in the blood stream.
Ingredient SummaryCoenzymeQ10 Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone or Co Q 10) is vitamin-like substance, an important antioxidant in both mitochondria and lipid membranes in all cells, and responsible for the production of the body’s own energy. In each cell food energy is converted into energy for our body in the mitochondria with the aid of Co Q 10. Almost all our body’s energy requirements (ATP) is converted with the aid of Co Q 10.
l-Taurine Taurine is a conditionally-essential - non-proteogenic - sulfur bearing amino acid like substance, found in the bodys tissues, bloodstream, heart, muscles and the nervous system. Taurine is an amino acid which serves as a nueral inhibitatory neurotransmitter and is found in areas of the body with high electrochemical activity such as the brain, eye and heart. Taurine aids the movement of potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium in and out of cells and thus helps generate nerve impulses. Zinc seems to support this effect of Taurine.
Acetyl l-Carnitine Acetyl L-carnitine is the acetyl ester of the amino acid L-carnitine and is similar in form to the amino acid L-carnitine. Acetyl L-carnitine absorbed into the bloodstream more efficiently than L-carnitine and passes more easily through cell membranes and is utilized more efficiently in the mitochondria of the cell. L-carnitine is a non-essential amino acid normally synthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine in the presence of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in the kidneys and liver. Carnitine occurs naturally in the body within the inner membrane of mitochondria where it is responsible for the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria matrix to be oxidized for energy.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) Cysteine is a conditionally essential sulfur bearing amino acid, derived by the combination of methionine and pyridoxal 5 phosphate (vitamin B6). N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of L-cysteine wherein an acetyl group is attached to the nitrogen atom, and the precursor form to glutathione.
Vitamin C (from magnesium ascorbate) Vitamin C as an ascorbate is an essential nutrient required for metabolic reactions. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, an ascorbate peroxidase substrate, an enzyme cofactor for the biosynthesis of many biochemicals and an electron donor for enzymes. The active form of vitamin C is the ascorbate ion, a strong reducing agent that gets converted to its oxidized form, L-dehydroascorbate in the body by enzymes and glutathione. It is a weak sugar acid structurally related to glucose, which naturally occurs either attached to a hydrogen ion (ascorbic acid), or to a mineral ion (a mineral ascorbate). The biological halflife for vitamin C is about 30 minutes in blood plasma.
Dimethylglycine/Trimethylglycine (trimethylglycine, or TMG) TMG functions closely with choline, folic acid, vitamin B12 and S-adenosyl methionine SAMe. All of these compounds function as "methyl donors." They carry and donate methyl functional groups to facilitate necessary chemical processes. The donation of methyl groups is important to proper liver function, cellular replication, and detoxification reactions. TMG plays a role in the manufacture of carnitine and serves to protect the kidneys from damage. DMG stimulates oxidative enzyme activities and inhibits cholesterol and triglyceride synthesis. Dimethylglycine is a molecule created when trimethylglycine donates one of its methyl groups.
Pomegranate Fruit Extract Pomegranate fruit extract contains polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins and antioxidants. Punicalagins are the unique pomegranate ellagitannins that metabolize into smaller polyphenols like ellagic acid.
Hawthorne Berry Extract Crataegus Laevigata and other related Crataegus Species, collectively known as hawthorn, have long been used as a folk medicine for their neuro- and cardiosedative actions which mainly have been attributed to the flavonoids, polyphenolic contents and the other active compounds vitexin, rutin and hyperoside.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin, Inositol hexinicotinate) Niacin (not niacinamide) reduces very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), a precursor of low density lipoprotein (LDL) or "bad" cholesterol, secretion from the liver, and inhibits cholesterol synthesis. Niacin can help increase the level of high density lipoprotein (HDL) or "good" cholesterol in blood. Niacinamide does not have anti-cholesterol properties. Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin, whose derivatives play essential roles in energy metabolism in the cell and DNA repair.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5 phosphate) The bioactive metabolite of Vitamin B-6, Pyridoxil 5'-phosphate is a coenzyme of many enzymatic reactions. It is the active form of Vitamin B-6 which comprises three natural organic compounds, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine and pyridoxine.
Folic Acid (Folacin) Folic acid AKA folate (the anion form) are forms of the water-soluble Vitamin B-9, which helps convert vitamin B12 to a coenzyme form, helps synthesize nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) essential for the growth and reproduction of all body cells, essential to the formation of red blood cells by its action on the bone marrow, and aids in amino acid metabolism.
Magnesium (from ascorbate) The element magnesium is an essential mineral involved in over 350 biochemical actions in the body. Magnesium relaxes smooth muscle, helps dilate blood vessels and maintains blood flow.
