When we set out to create a formula to support heart health, Magnesium Glycinate made for an easy starting point. We added the second most important nutrient to support cardiovascular function and health – Taurine.
Magnesium levels can contribute more significantly to heart disease than cholesterol or saturated fats – common risk factors, like: high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and metabolic syndrome are all associated with low Magnesium levels.
And low magnesium levels can also worsen congestive heart failure, atherosclerosis, chest pain, high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, heart muscle disease, and heart attack.
Taurine’s effects on cardiovascular health is a function of the beneficial effects it has on insulin and insulin receptors, on obesity, muscle health, energy, sleep, brain function, and stress.
The heart muscle contains the highest concentrations of Taurine and studies indicate that it helps retain Magnesium and Potassium within the muscle, which is very important for cellular health & hydration & electrical stability & regularity and strength of muscle contractions.
Additional studies show that individuals with high blood pressure have lower levels of Taurine in the bloodstream.
CoQ10 is a natural antioxidant and helps keep LDL cholesterol in its normal, less sticky, oxidative state.
It helps support optimal heart muscle function, circulatory health, blood vessel wall health.
CoQ10 deficiency has been associated with cardiovascular problems including angina, arrhythmia, heart failure and high blood pressure, but also with compromised blood sugar regulation, stomach ulcers, gum disease, chronic fatigue and muscle pain.
Individuals using cholesterol lowering drugs (Statins) are at a particular risk of CoQ10 deficiency, because the drugs also block the body's own CoQ10 production.
Recommended Use: Helps to maintain proper muscle function, support cardiovascular function and health.
