Heart & Circulatory Health
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in North America but fortunately there are many contributing factors that are within our control. Even with a family history of heart disease, choosing a healthy lifestyle and taking heart health supplements can help to lower the odds of getting heart disease. Some of the most important influences on the health of the heart and circulatory system are obesity, poor diet, smoking, lack of exercise and uncontrolled stress. There are also medications, including some used to treat heart disease like diuretics and cholesterol lowering medications that deplete the body of nutrients that are needed to support the health of the heart. + Read more >
The average North American diet consists mainly of high fat, refined and processed foods that doesn’t provide the body with the nutritional support it needs to optimal health. Changing your diet to one filled with whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetable and lean proteins will help to support the health of your heart and circulatory system. Reducing your fat intake helps to reduce the risk of calcium and cholesterol deposits forming in the arteries. These deposits reduce the flexibility of the walls of the arteries and create blockages. Because of these blockages, the heart has to work harder to pump blood to the rest of the body leading to high blood pressure. Sometimes these deposits also break loose and lodge in smaller blood vessels, which can lead to heart attacks and stroke. Using Calcium and Magnesium heart health supplements helps to support the tone of the blood vessels, while Vitamin E helps to maintain the elasticity of the vessels and promote healing. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential heart health supplements whether you already have heart disease or are trying to prevent heart disease. They have been shown to help reduce the risk of abnormal heart rhythms, prevent plaques from depositing in the arteries and lower blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements help to lower triglyceride levels and increase the HDL, or “good” cholesterol levels, and are available in liquid of gel capsule form. Other heart health supplements that work by controlling cholesterol include Garlic, Hawthorn Berry and Red Rice Yeast extract. Damage to healthy cells by free radicals can be prevented with the use of antioxidant heart health supplements. Some of the most potent antioxidants include Grape Seed extract, Vitamin C and E. Coenzyme Q10 helps to maintain health heart function by increasing oxygen levels in the cells.

Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Studies with trans-resveratrol have reported a diverse range of benefits in the areas of heart health, immunity and inflammation. Research has also revealed that trans-resveratrol mimics the biological longevity effects of a calorie-restricted diet. There is no doubt that many among us, in the context of dinner-party banter or some other setting conducive to the transfer of anecdotal wisdom, have heard that a glass of wine a day is good for your health. ‘A healthy heart and a long life' is usually the jist of this particular nugget of scientifically secular populist enlightenment. The long life that is inferred is attributable to a substance that the scientifically observant elite have identified as resveratrol, a phytonutrient originating -in this case - in the vinyards. Resveratrol, in turn, elicits this wondrous effect largely by mimicking many of the biological chain of events seen in the practice of Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON), or simply Caloric Restriction (CR).$33.88

Cardio Mag 2.0 is true magnesium orotate. Magnesium and orotic acid exert complementary effects on the biosynthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides, supporting the heart's ability to endure and recover from chronic and acute stressors through the maintenance of normal glycogen stores, protein synthesis, ATP levels, and contractile function. Research supports the ability of true magnesium orotate to support cardiac function. The magnesium orotate in AOR's Cardio Mag 2.0 is fully-reacted, unlike most "magnesium orotate" products which are food-grade mixtures of orotic acid with inorganic magnesium salts.

Carnosine is a dipeptide found in high concentrations in brain and muscle tissues. A potent inhibitor of damage to proteins from sugar (glycation) and scavenger of free radicals, carnosine has been shown to reverse cellular senescence in culture. Preliminary evidence suggests that it may provide support conditions of sub-optimal brain homocarnosine metabolism leading to impairment in social interaction, communication, stereotyped behavior, and symbolic or imaginative interaction.
