coenzyme Q10 with nutrients and botanicals to benefit the heart*
This combination of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), hawthorn (Crataegus oxycantha), potassium, taurine, and magnesium provides the heart muscle with nutrients for healthy functioning.*
CoQ10 is a vital element for the heart.* Cells of the heart muscle have a high metabolism and need CoQ10 as an energy-producing cofactor.* CoQ10 also serves as an antioxidant.* Numerous studies on CoQ10 show its benefit in cardiovascular function.* In a 73-subject study with CoQ10 supplementation at 120 mg daily, improvements were observed after 28 days.*
Taurine is an essential nutrient cofactor for cardiac function and the most abundant amino acid in the heart.* Research indicates supplementation with taurine supports already normal levels of cholesterol, probably due to taurine's ability to help convert cholesterol to bile acids.* In addition, taurine aids in the regulation of intracellular calcium levels, which helps protect the heart muscle and support cardiac function.*
Flavonoid compounds in hawthorn appear to strengthen blood vessels and support cardiac function; whereas, flavonoids in Ginkgo promote blood flow.* Hawthorn has been shown to be supportive of good cardiac health by helping to maintain already normal blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise capacity.* The flavonoids in hawthorne and Ginkgo act as antioxidants and may improve artery function, which promotes dilation and blood flow.*
Magnesium and potassium are minerals necessary for proper cardiovascular function.*
