Cardiosteroil Garlic & CoEnzyme Q10 offers the combined action Garlic and CoQ10 - two of the most beneficial ingredients for your heart. Garlic prevents heart diseases (including atherosclerosis), lowers high cholesterol, reduces high blood pressure and lowers the risk of cancer, while CoQ10 has an energizing effect on the heart.
Cardiosteroil Garlic & CoEnzyme Q10 offers the combined action of two ingredients which are among the most beneficial to your heart.
The medical use of Garlic (Allium Sativum) goes way back in history: there is evidence of its importance in the Egyptian Pyramids and even Biblical references to its use. Ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates prescribed it to treat many conditions and Greek athletes used it to improve their performance. Today, its numerous benefits are well-known: it prevents heart disease (including atherosclerosis), lowers high cholesterol, reduces high blood pressure, and lowers the risk of cancer. Numerous studies on animals and on human subjects have demonstrated the cardiovascular benefits of garlic: garlic supplementation can decrease the accumulation of cholesterol on vascular walls of animals, reduce aortic plaque buildup of cholesterol-fed rabbits; it can also inhibit vascular calcification in human patients with high blood cholesterol.
The vasodilative properties of garlic are probably due to its allicin content and the catabolism of garlic-derived polysulfides to hydrogen sulfide in red blood cells, a reaction that is dependent on reduced thiols in or on the red blood cell membrane. Hydrogen sulfide is an endogenous cardioprotective vascular cell signaling molecule. Garlic reduces the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is one of the most important factors in the acceleration of atherosclerosis.
CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has an energizing effect on the heart. CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone (its name shares the same root as the word “ubiquitous” and in fact CoQ10 really is present in every cell of the body!), is an essential component of the electron transport chain, as it is responsible for accepting and transferring electrons in the mitochondria. Cardiac muscle cells contain twice the amount of CoEnzyme Q10 than any other cell in our body; they also need more of it since they have higher energy requirements and oxygen consumption. It has been found that statins, commonly prescribed to lower cholesterol, also break down the synthesis of CoQ10, consequently reducing mitochondrial energy production which can result in muscle pain (myalgia). The consumption of CoQ10 supplements is therefore highly recommended for patients who are taking statins.
The unique formula of Cardiosteroil Garlic & CoEnzyme Q10 is microencapsulated for better protection and presented in liquid capsules for faster absorption and higher bioavailability.
|CoQ10 → Provides a supply of energy for the heart||Garlic oil macerate → Protection for the heart|
Recommended for patients who have borderline cholesterol levels, patients taking statins, patients who can be prone to a rise in cholesterol e.g after pregnancy, geriatric cases, patients with unhealthy diets, eating high-fat foods, or simply to maintain a healthy heart.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
1 to 2 capsules a day or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Note to customers about CoQ10 formulation: Crystallization may occur when capsules are exposed to temperature variation, particularly to low temperatures. This phenomenon is reversible and CoQ10 crystals will dissolve again when the product is exposed to a warmer temperature (above room temperature). Please be informed that this phenomenon does not affect in any way the stability of CoQ10, as was confirmed by HPLC (High-performance liquid chromatography) assay on the level of CoQ10 in our capsules.
Note to distributor: An opaque capsule can also be chosen to mask this natural phenomenon.
