Includes vegetarian source of omega-3 fish flaxseed oil
The Cardioace® formulation includes a vegetarian alternative to omega-3 fish oil, which is flaxseed oil, another source of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). Flaxseed oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are needed for health. Flaxseed oil contains the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which the body converts into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the same omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.
Garlic has been traditionally used for heart health.
B vitamins and Homocysteine – with heart health
Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid work in synergy to help maintain healthy levels of a blood amino acid called homocysteine. Analysis has revealed that high levels of homocysteine are a strong independent factor in heart health, accounting for as much as 10% of the combined influence of all known factors in heart health. Through their effects on homocysteine levels, Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid can help to maintain a healthy heart, and are also essential for red blood cell formation.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and may be beneficial for heart health by helping to support the body against free radicals, which cause oxidation. Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), commonly known as 'bad cholesterol', is the main supplier of cholesterol to tissues. High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) scavenges for free cholesterol in the tissues and transports it back to the liver, so it is known as 'good cholesterol'. Oxidation of HDL interferes with its role in cholesterol transport. Antioxidants like vitamins E and C help to support against free radicals, which can oxidise LDL and HDL, and may therefore be beneficial for maintaining heart health.
Based on the latest research
The Cardioace® formulation is based on the very latest international findings on the role of nutrients in heart health, as well as numerous studies over the past 20 years. Backed up by almost 200 key references, Cardioace® was developed with the help of leading scientists and with input from a University Department of Nutritional Science.
