Heart Disease and Women

Heart Disease is the Number One cause of death for women in North America. Yet, according to studies, in most cases it is preventable. Most researchers now believe that free radical damage to the arteries is the major factor contributing to arterial blockages. The body’s attempts to ‘patch up’ free radical injury causes the build up of what are called arterial plaques. If left unchecked, plaque eventually partially blocks off circulation causing angina or completely obstruct certain arteries resulting in a heart attack or stroke. Many nutrients and herbs support the heart and circulatory system. Used in combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle, they can significantly affect cardiovascular wellness for the better.

Coenzyme Q-10 is one of the most well known supplements for heart health. Extensive research shows that it significantly reduces the risk of heart attack by aiding respiration of the heart muscle, and preventing cardiac arrhythmias. CoQ-10 also stimulates the immune system and lowers blood pressure. Dose: 60mg per day with food
