The heart is the hardest working organ in our body. It contracts and relaxes 100,000 times a day, pumping approximately 2,000 gallons of blood. The heart requires tremendous amounts of energy in the form of ATP (adenosine tri phosphate) to function properly. To produce bioenergy the cardiac cells burn fat and sugar. However, this fuel cannot be converted into energy without specific vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients. These micronutrients are essential biological catalysts for the bioenergy cycle, and they need to be continuously supplied in our diet.
The heart and oxidative stress: Continuously contracting heart muscle cells increase oxygen consumption and expose the cells to near constant oxidative stress and associated cell damage. Therefore, it is important to supplement specific micronutrients protecting the cells from oxidative stress in addition to optimum bioenergy production.
The essential micronutrients which are critical for optimum heart function and general health and longevity must be carefully selected and synergistically combined. Intake of random combinations of supplements may often create or aggravate other nutrient imbalances.
The Energy Support Health Pack I contains scientifically designed and clinically tested synergistic formulas developed to support the hard-working cardiac cells.
- Vitamin C, B1 and other B group vitamins are essential for bioenergy production supporting proper contraction and relaxation of the heart muscle cells. A deficiency of vitamin B1 (thiamine) can lead to a serious heart condition.
- Coenzyme Q10 is a vital component in the generation of ATP in cell mitochondria and provides required energy for the pumping of the heart and antioxidant protection.
- Carnitine supports transport of fatty acids into the heart mitochondria which are bioenergy power plants.
- Calcium, magnesium, and taurine are critical for healthy contractions of the heart muscle cells and conducting nerve impulses to generate a regular and strong heartbeat.
Health advantage offered by “Nutrient Synergy” formulas in the Health Pack:
- Better effectiveness compared to using one ingredient or their random combinations.
- Carefully selected moderate doses of ingredients eliminate the need for mega-doses, and allows to maintain cellular metabolism in balance.
- Synergy helps to correct underlying micronutrient deficiencies essential for maintaining healthy body functions.
