Nutrina’s Cardionol Formula contains vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients for cardiovascular health. According to world-wide scientific study, each of these carefully-selected nutrients plays a role in preventing various forms of heart disease.

Salmon Oil is naturally rich in two important omega-3 fatty acids: EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid). These acids neutralize blood triglycerides (chemical compounds in fats that are generally linked with increased risk of heart disease) and inhibit the progression of atherosclerosis (condition of restricted blood flow in which cholesterol and other fatty substances are deposited on the inner walls of arteries).

EPA and DHA also keep blood from clotting too quickly and have anti-inflammatory activity. Because fish oil is easily damaged by oxygen, the presence of Vitamin E in the formula is of great importance. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects EPA, DHA, and other vital nutrients from oxidative damage within the body. Studies indicate patients with heart disease need less oxygen for normal oxidation purposes if well supplemented with vitamin E. This is due in part to E’s essential role in red blood cell maintenance. In fact, vitamin E improves the overall oxygen utilization of all body tissues.

Vitamin C protects against the primary cause of heart disease-arterial wall lesions-by strengthening arterial tissues and blood vessel walls. Vitamin C does this by creating a protein called collagen. Collagen strengthens muscles, bones, skin, and blood vessels. Cell walls in arteries are only a few molecules thick and can be easily penetrated by various poisons and toxins. Collagen acts as a “glue,” keeping cell walls strong and resistant. Without enough Vitamin C, collagen production will lessen, and arterial walls can become weak.

CoQ10 is a vitally important coenzyme that is involved in the production of over 90% of the body’s total energy. The body’s production of CoQ10 decreases with age; heart problems usually occur when levels decrease by 25% or more. This is because CoQ10 plays an active role in creating ATP molecules which power cells and enable respiration and energy production. As levels of CoQ10 decrease, supplementing it becomes important. In fact, congestive heart failure has been correlated with low blood-and-tissue levels of CoQ10.

Chromium is an element that plays a vital role in atherosclerotic disease (form of heart disease in which irregular deposits of plaque accumulate in the inner layers of arteries). This is because chromium has been shown to decrease LDL (low density lipoprotein, or “harmful cholesterol”) cholesterol levels and triglycerides. Researchers have determined that heart patients have up to 40 percent lower blood levels of chromium than healthy persons. Lecithin is an important addition to the formula.

A type of fat synthesized by the liver, lecithin is a common phospholipid, important in breaking down cholesterol and fats in the blood and allowing them to be utilized by individual cells. When amounts of cholesterol and saturated fats increase in the body, it is important for levels of lecithin to increase also. Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, is essential for many body functions, including the release of energy from carbohydrates, alcohol, fats, and the health of nerves and muscles. In general, the more carbohydrates or alcohol consumed, the greater need for thiamine.
