Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is known as the silent killer because there are often no symptoms initially and people don’t know that they have it until there is already damage to the body. Fortunately there are many factors that contribute to hypertension that we can control naturally which will lower the risk of damage to the body and reduce the need for conventional medications as treatment for high blood pressure. Changing your diet, losing weight, exercising daily and taking hypertension supplements can help to lower blood pressure naturally and eliminate the need for medications. Diet is one of the biggest contributing factors in developing hypertension. The average North American diet contains too much fat, processed food and refined flour and sugar. + Read more >
One of the most common causes of high blood pressure is the narrowing and hardening of the arteries that is caused primarily by eating too much of the wrong types of fats. Other causes of high blood pressure include obesity, kidney disease, thyroid or adrenal gland diseases, hormonal disorders, alcohol use, stress, and the use of certain medications or herbs. For effective long-term blood pressure control it is important to address the underlying cause rather than simply relying on medication to lower the blood pressure. Improving blood flow is an important step to lowering your blood pressure. Hypertension supplements such as Vitamin E, Garlic, and Essential Fatty Acids have been shown to help improve blood flow, which means the heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood around the body. Vitamin E is also an effective antioxidant. Caution should be used with Vitamin E and Garlic hypertension supplements if you are taking a blood thinner as they are effective natural blood thinners. Hawthorn Berry and Gingko Biloba hypertension supplements help to dilate coronary arteries, which improves blood flow and circulation. Increasing oxygenation to the cells by using CoEnzyme Q10 supplements also helps to improve circulation. In cases where stress is a major contributing factor to hypertension, it is important to use a Vitamin B complex supplement in addition to using complimentary therapies such as Yoga to lower stress levels. For those who do require medication to lower the blood pressure, particularly diuretics, it is important to replace the minerals that are stripped away by the medications. Two of the key minerals that are affected by these medications are potassium and magnesium. Low potassium levels can lead to increased sodium levels in the cells, as these two minerals work by balancing each other out. Magnesium is important for healthy heart function and works to reduce stress on the heart by relaxing the heart muscle. With the proper diet, regular exercise and hypertension supplements from Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store it is possible to lower your blood pressure naturally and improve your overall health and sense of well-being. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
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.

CoQ10 is an oil-soluble, vitamin-like nutrient taken as a supplement by millions of health-conscious people across North America. The amount of CoQ10 available from our food is only a tiny fraction of the quantity needed each day. The body makes CoQ10 in a complex process that requires at least eight vitamins, trace minerals, and the amino acid tyrosine. A deficiency of any single nutrient can reduce the production of CoQ10. With recent advancements in science, the ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is now available as a nutritional supplement. The latest research shows ubiquinol CoQ10 is more absorbable than the standard ubiquinone form previously used as a nutritional supplement, making it more effective for supporting heart health, increasing energy, providing antioxidant protection, and maintaining health as we age. Ubiquinol CoQ10 is quickly becoming the preferred choice of doctors, nutritionists, and consumers. Daily supplementation with Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10, with superior bioavailability, enhances blood levels of CoQ10, provides sustained, natural energy to fight age-related fatigue, supports heart health, and provides antioxidant protection to cells. Natural Factors Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10 contains Kaneka QH ubiquinol, a branded form of ubiquinol manufactured exclusively by Kaneka Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of ubiquinol. Kaneka Q10 is the world's most recognized and researched CoQ10. In fact, in nearly every major study of CoQ10, researchers have used Kaneka Q10 ubiquinol.$27.99
Easy to swallow caplets containing 200 mg Vitamin C from organic Acerola berries. Vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin, is an integral part of maintaining good health, supporting the immune system, and is a critical factor in forming collagen (key structural component of bones, skin, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels). Most Vitamin C supplements are synthetically made from genetically modified corn. Many harsh chemicals such as hexane and acetone are used in the process and while they are not in the finished product, workers are exposed to them and waste pollutants from them are given off into the environment. Naturally Nova Scotia's Vitamin C derives its nutritional content entirely from organic fruit; Acerola Berries. Acerola Berries, also known as the Barbados cherry, are grown on the Acerola tree (genus Malpighia), native to the American tropics. They are not a true cherry although they have a close resemblance. The Acerola berry is uniquely high in Vitamin C as compared to many other fruits. One glass of fresh Acerola juice can contain the same amount of Vitamin C as 14 liters of orange juice. The high concentration of Vitamin C in tropical and subtropical plants, such as the Acerola berry, is common as they receive long exposure to sunlight. The antioxidant behaviour of Acerola fruit has been shown in many chemical model systems and in a biological system with direct health implications. Acerola is effective in protecting cells against oxidative damage and premature aging caused by the generation of free radicals. Vitamin C found in whole foods like Acerola co-exist with bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and other complex phenolics. This ensures the stability and related bioavailability and activity of the Vitamin C. Organic Acerola Berry is an excellent source of non-synthetic, bioavailable, Vitamin C and antioxidants. When Acerola harvesting stage, and drying and packaging methods are considered, a premium and effective whole food source of Vitamin C is the result. Acerola's uniquely high amount of ascorbic acid paired with the presence and synergistic effect of Nature's stabilizers (bioflavonoids and carotenoids) make it a preferred Vitamin C source.$9.99
Pomegranate (pom-i-gran-it) a chambered, many-seeded and globose fruit, with a tough and usually red rind, and surmounted by a crown of calyx lobes; the edible portion consisting of pleasantly acidic flesh developed from the outer seed coat. Mediterranean Jewel The fruit of the attractive pomegranate tree is one of the most distinctive in the world. With its crimson colored rind housing a complex interior of ruby-like juicy seeds and white pith (with approximately 800 edible seeds packed into one fruit!), fresh pomegranate is not a food to be consumed in a hurry. Native to southwestern Asia, the pomegranate is widely cultivated in warm, dry regions of the world – most historically the Mediterranean. Some date cultivation of this fruit back to prehistoric times, and it has been used throughout the ages medicinally, mytholigically, and as a valued culinary element. Most Western cultures today are familiar with this fruit in its raw state or as a juice – a deep red delicacy which tastes divine but also inevitably stains something. Navitas Naturals Pomegranate Powder makes enjoying the lovely pomegranate easy by offering it in a freeze-dried, mess-free, powder form. The Power of Pomegranate Though most of the pomegranate’s mythological roots (often seen as a symbol of fertility and prosperity) cannot be proven, recent attention from scientific communities solidifies the fruit’s health benefits are far from myth. Pomegranate contains a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals, with especially notable amounts of vitamin C and potassium. It is also a powerful source of antioxidant phytoestrogens, polyphenols, and anti-inflammatory essential amino acids. Among the most important effects of this beneficial nutrient collection is the ability to inhibit free radicals (a biological component attributed to disease and aging). Remarkably, polyphenols may inhibit estrogen synthesis, and the oil from the pomegranate seed has been proven effective against the proliferation of breast cancer cells in vitro. But there’s more. Pomegranate’s contribution to cardiovascular health has also been widely celebrated. In preliminary laboratory research and human pilot studies, juice of the pomegranate was shown effective in reducing heart disease risk factors: including LDL oxidation, macrophage oxidative status, and foam cell formation (important components of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease). Pomegranate juice has also been shown to reduce systolic blood pressure (inhibiting the serum angiotensin-converting enzyme), may inhibit viral infections, and can also have antibacterial effects against dental plaque. With the high levels of ongoing research, exploration of the pomegranate’s exciting health benefits have only just begun. Needless to say, including pomegranate in the diet serves as a powerful tool for disease prevention. Pomegranate Potency Though Navitas Naturals Pomegranate Powder is a superfood warrior health-wise, its fruity flavor is much more mild -- making it easy to incorporate into recipes. Just a spoonful or two is a great dietary addition stirred into juice or tea, or blended into a smoothie. Undiluted, Pomegranate Powder is also excellent when mixed into desserts - like chocolate pudding or truffles - and serves as a smart superfood addition to homemade energy bars.$26.99
