Cardio and Heart Health Supplements

Boost Your Cardio Health With Heart Health Supplements

When it comes to preventative health there is no other part of the body that warrants as much attention as your cardiovascular system. Although your heart is at the center of your cardiovascular system, it is only one part of it. Of course, if it stops beating, then nothing else matters as ‘life’ departs our body… in other words, we are dead!

So, we have to do the best that we can to ensure that our own heart and that of our loved ones keep beating… for as long as possible.

Our heart is our hardest working organ, beating over 100,000 times a day to pump blood and nutrients around the 96,000 kilometres of blood vessels in our bodies. Without a strong heart, there’s literally no life - so we really need to take good care of it.

Because the cardiovascular system works so hard, it’s also of the most vulnerable systems in the body. This is why diseases of the cardiovascular system, such as stroke, heart attack, and heart disease are one of the leading causes of death in almost every Western country.

Medical science is capable of some pretty amazing things…but, a stent after someone has had a heart attack is really just a temporary ‘band-aid'. It won’t prevent a blockage in another part of the body, and certainly not in the thousands of miles of capillaries which are throughout the human body and particularly in the brain!

Cardio Health Supplements To Protect Your Most Precious Asset

Despite popular opinion, the overwhelming majority of heart attack and stroke events are actually preventable. Most of them are caused by chronic inflammation, not high cholesterol. In fact, only 5% of fatal heart attack victims have elevated cholesterol. When you have your cholesterol levels checked, make sure your Doctor also tests your C-Reactive Protein levels – a key marker of chronic inflammation.

A healthful diet and regular exercise are the simplest ways to reduce your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. That said, there is a range of heart health supplements that can help protect and support your cardiovascular system.

The following options have been followed by thousands of Xtend-Life customers over the last 17 years with outstanding results. Our Chairman & Founder Warren Matthews, who is 70, follows these protocols and his heart health is exceptional. On Dec 4, 2015, his blood pressure was 117/65, and C-Reactive Protein (which measures inflammation in the blood) was 0.5 (that of a child).

The most basic step you can take to protect your heart health is to ensure that you have an adequate intake of a quality Omega 3 fish oil with a reasonable level of DHA. DHA (one of the most complex Omega 3 fatty acids) is more important than EPA. The body can easily convert DHA to EPA if needed, but converting EPA to DHA is virtually impossible for many people.

NOTE: There has been a campaign running for the last year or so (by interested parties) to attempt to discredit the efficacy of Omega 3 fish oils in assisting circulatory issues. The evidence is very weak and is overwhelmed by literally hundreds of studies that unequivocally support the positive benefits from the intake of a quality Omega 3 fish oil supplement.

In addition to Omega 3, it’s important to make sure you have an adequate intake of other nutrients and heart supplements that support your cardiovascular system. Total Balance and Cardio-Support provide the nutrients to support all your organs, including the cardiovascular system.
