Hawthorn Extract: Hawthorn is the single most potent herb for the heart. It increases circulation, helps keep blood vessels clear, offers free radical protection to the heart, keeps blood vessels dilated and acts like a beta-blocker.
Red Clover: This herb is a concentrated source of isoflavones, ten times more potent than soy. These Isoflavones can help arteries elasticity. Red clover also promotes the synthesis of high-density lipoproteins, known as good cholesterol.
Ginko Extract: Ginko has a long history of improving circulation to the brain. It too has vasodilating effects and it quickly crosses the blood-brain barrier, thereby increasing the oxygen supply to the brain cells and heart muscle.
Capsicum: Capsicum increases circulation to the peripheral tissues. This way it ensures that nutrients are delivered to needy areas. It too is a vasodilator and thus can help balance blood pressure.
Folic Acid, B6, B12: These B vitamins help to break down homocysteine, which is a building block of arterial plaque. Scientific studies have shown that these vitamins help maintain a healthy level of homocysteine. B-6 also aids in the synthesis of Coq-10.
Stress and disease increases the need for Folic Acid. It is used by the body for the formation of heme, the iron containing protein in hemoglobin.
B6 consists of three compounds: Pyridoxine, pyridoxamine, pyridoxal. A person needs 2mg. for every 100 grams of protein intake. B6 helps to control Arteriosclerosis and heart dystrophy.
B12 acts against deterioration of cells and tissues of the central nervous system, improves blood-supply and decreases cholesterol. B12, also called Cobalamin, is the only vitamin containing cobalt, an essential trace mineral..
Choline Bitartrate: Choline is a B vitamin and is present in all living cells. It is manufactured by the body from the amino acid Methionine, along with Folic Acid and B-12. It is a constituent of Lecithin, which facilitates the movement of fats from the liver to the cells, and helps clear fats from the walls of blood vessels. Choline needs Inositol to become effective. Choline has no toxic side-effects, but can be destroyed by strong alkali.
Taurine: Taurine facilitates the passage of sodium, potassium and also possibly calcium and magnesium ions in and out of cells. It may have a similar effect as digitalis and may help regulate heart beat. It can help heart failure by acting as a diuretic and causing sodium and water to be excreted. Simultaneously, it prevents potassium from leaving the cell. Taurine has an electrical stabilizing effect on the electrical impulses in the brain and thus could be beneficial for some people with epilepsy.
