Cardio Assurance [Circulatory] blends heart-benefiting ingredients that are designed to support your heart and cardiovascular system, including hawthorn berries extract, vitamin K2 (MK7), resveratrol, folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12.
Hawthorn is one of the most thoroughly researched herbs for heart and circulatory support. Hawthorn contains flavonoids, which are packed with antioxidant protection and help maintain blood vessels and promote blood flow in the heart arteries. Hawthorn also aids in reducing cholesterol synthesis as well as facilitating the metabolism of cholesterol in the liver.
Research shows that Vitamin K2, a menaquinone, may support bone mineral density. Recent studies show that osteocalcin, a vitamin K-dependant protein, improves insulin synthesis while directing cells to store less fat; this process plays an important role in the regulation of fat cells and glucose metabolism, which may result in more effective weight management. Vitamin K2 is extracted from soy.
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic phytoalexin, a chemical compound that acts to support plants that are under attack by foreign organisms. Studies indicate that resveratrol has promising heart-healthy benefits and may be the answer to the French Paradox. (Despite their high intake of fat, the French have a low incidence of heart issues.)
Folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 work synergistically to metabolize homocysteine, an amino acid that can damage blood vessel linings. Vitamin B6 also aids the synthesis of coenzyme-Q10, a heart-protecting compound.
Adults: Take 1 capsule with a meal twice daily.
