Healthy Heart & Circulation

A good cardiovascular system is key to anyone's good health. Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, England, Canada and Wales. Heart disease is an umbrella term used to cover a multitude of diseases including angina, atherosclerosis, cholesterol, hypertension and arrhythmia.

The heart is a large muscle that pumps blood around the body via a highly intricate system of veins, arteries and capillaries. This blood carries oxygen and essential nutrients to every organ in the body to keep us fit and healthy.

If our blood vessels become blocked or restricted by fur or plaque, extra strain is put on our heart due to the increase in blood pressure (hypertension). By making sure you have a high intake of essential micronutrients you can help maintain a healthy cholesterol level, blood flow, heartbeat, and reduce high blood pressure significantly and subsequently heart disease.

There are many cardiovascular nutrients you can take as part of a healthy heart programme, and these have an affect on homocysteine levels, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglycerides. Just a few of the nutrients to mention are Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Co Enzyme Q10, Omega-3 essential fatty acids and the amino acid Arginine. All of these and more are available in this section.
