Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women, and greater than the next five causes of death combined! Over 64 million Americans suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association. Staggering facts, but true!
So, what can we do to prevent heart disease from impacting ourselves and our families? First, the standard answers to overall health: diet and exercise! A nutritious diet high in fiber and low in cholesterol, triglycerides and trans fats, can give you a good start at warding off heart disease. Also with a sensible exercise regimen, you can significantly improve your chances of heart-healthy living. But what if those two simple components of healthy living don’t completely do the trick? Fortunately, there are supplements available to enable the heart and cardiovascular system to operate at peak levels and prohibit cholesterol and plaque buildup in your blood stream.
CoQ10 is a naturally-occurring compound in every cell of the body and found in high concentrations in tissues and organs that require lots of energy. Obviously, the heart requires vast levels of energy to function properly. So, CoQ10 is essential for the heart. Many people with high cholesterol take cholesterol-lowering drugs called ‘statins’ (Lipitor, Pravachol, etc.). These drugs are effective in lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol but unfortunately, since they also inhibit production of some enzymes like CoQ10, the body becomes deficient. That’s where CoQ10 supplements come in. Supplements such as IHL Essentials CoQ10 replace the body’s lack of this essential enzyme, limiting the occurrence of congestive heart failure, angina and hypertension. CoQ10 supplements have also been linked to weight loss, as a result of their beneficial effect on metabolism.
Ubiquinol is a reduced and active form of coenzyme Q10, specifically formulated for those over 40 who are affected by chronic disease. This powerful antioxidant is significantly better absorbed into the body as we age. Ubiquinol has been shown to increase levels of CoQ10 up to 777%!
Multivitamins and Antioxidants
Research has shown benefits to the vascular system with regular consumption of supplements containing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, specific plant extracts and essential fatty acids. These components assist in normal blood viscosity, movement and restoration.
