Heart disease is the world’s number one killer and even though, according to the World Health Organisation, cancer is soon set to take over this rather inauspicious title, there’s little doubt that heart disease will remain right up there as one of the world’s leading causes of mortality.
But perhaps what makes heart disease even more deadly is the fact that it is so often a silent killer. For many people, the first time that they become aware that there is a problem is when they experience their first heart attack. And, unfortunately for some, this first heart attack can prove to be fatal.
There are many factors implicated in heart health, but cardiologists now agree that two of the most important factors in lowering your risk of suffering from a cardio vascular event are to have thin blood and soft arteries. To reinforce this thinking, post mortem studies have also shown that clogging of arteries (arteriosclerosis) and the hardening of arteries are present in 90% of victims of heart disease.
It therefore makes perfect sense to do what you can to look after your heart. Adopting a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and a good, balanced diet is obviously an excellent step in the right direction, but alone may not be sufficient to really protect your heart. And this is where CardioPro steps in. Developed specifically to look after your heart, CardioPro provides you with a unique blend of Carnosine and Resveratrol together with ionic minerals and rare trace elements that work together to help provide protection for your heart and lower your risk of developing heart disease.
As already mentioned, the two main ingredients in CardioPro are Carnosine and Resveratrol. We shall now look at these in more detail.
Carnosine is a multifunctional dipeptide produced by combining two other amino-acids – Alanine and Histidine. It occurs naturally in tissues like the muscles and the brain. It has a number of functions and is fundamental to any life extension program as it is known to protect and extend the functional life of the body's key building blocks—cells, proteins, DNA, lipids.
Carnosine is known to act as an anti-oxidant, helping to protect cells in the body from free radical damage.
In addition, Carnosine is an exceptionally useful anti-glycator. Glycosylation is a chemical process by which a sugar or sugar chain is added to a protein or fat molecule. This process can result in the destruction of valuable proteins and DNA. Researchers have recently discovered that abnormal combinations of sugar and proteins are very toxic and contribute to the development of several age related diseases including heart disease. Carnosine, as an anti-glycator, can help to prevent damage from glycosylation.
And finally, as we age our Carnosine levels fall.
Resveratrol is also naturally occurring but this time it is produced by a number of different plants rather than by our own system. In particular, Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and as such is found in concentrated quantities in red wine. The regular consumption of Resveratrol containing red wine by the French may also be the key to answering the French Paradox i.e. how is it that the French generally eat a rich diet that is high in fats and yet as a nation have lower rates of heart disease than Americans?
Resveratrol is known to have a number of important health benefits. It is capable of promoting the stimulation and regeneration of nerve cells and helping in the fight against cancer. It is also an exciting addition to anti-aging medicine as it is thought to be highly implicated in life extension. But in terms of CardioPro, it is its promotion of cardio vascular health that is the most interesting and relevant.
Not only does Resveratrol have the ability to increase levels of HDL cholesterol (often referred to as “the good cholesterol”) but it also helps to reduce platelet aggregation (the stickiness of platelets) and free radical damage to the linings of blood vessels. By preventing the binding of cholesterol to platelets and arterial walls, stickiness is reduced, healthy blood flow is stimulated and there is far less risk of a blood clot developing and clogging an artery.
By combining Carnosine and Resveratrol with ionic minerals such as magnesium and potassium as well as important yet rare trace elements including palladium, boron and lithium, CardioPro offers an amazing, synergistic heart health supplement. Indeed, in tests carried out to measure arterial stiffness, every patient who had taken 3 capsules of CardioPro for approximately a month was found to have significantly improved arteries.
So if heart health is important to you, then reach for CardioPro.
