An exclusive formulation of herbal products and
phytonutrients developed to help support heart health.*
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat soluble nutrient
that occurs naturally in the human body. Energy cannot be produced on a
cellular level, without it. The heart utilizes more cellular energy than
any other organ. CoQ10 is an essential nutrient for healthy heart
function.* It protects and strengthens the heart.* Clinical studies have
revealed CoQ10 deficiencies in the heart tissues of people with heart
problems.* CoQ10 may help with promoting healthy blood pressure.* CoQ10 is
a strong antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals that damage
cells. As we age, the body loses its ability to manufacture adequate
amounts of CoQ10 and supplementation is recommended. Note*: It is best to
take CoQ10 with a little bit of fat, like flax or olive oil for better
the purified extract form of the medicinal plant named Gum Guggul, which
is a resinous material that comes from the Mukul Myrrh tree (Commiphora
mukul) in India. In the classic Ayurvedic medical system, Guggul has been
used for lipid (fat) problems.* In scientific studies, Gugulipid has been
shown to support healthy cholesterol levels along with promoting weight
loss.* Gugulipid has antioxidant properties that appear to protect the
heart against free radical damage.*
Extract is recognized as a cardiotonic herb that may be helpful in
supporting healthy heart function.* The high concentration of flavonoid
compounds, known as proanthocyanidins, are primarily responsible for its
cardiovascular and free radical scavenging activity. * Proanthocyanidins
may also increase blood and oxygen supplies to the heart.* Hawthorn
extract may be helpful in promoting healthy blood pressure and cholesterol
levels along with protecting against the buildup of cholesterol in the
arteries.* In clinical studies, Hawthorn shows much promise in its ability
to dilate coronary blood vessels that supply the heart with nutrients and
oxygen.* The flavonoid compounds have been shown to decrease the
constriction of coronary vessels which may enhance the smooth flow of
blood into the arteries as well.*
is an important amino acid that assists in fat metabolism.* It plays an
important role in the body’s ability to convert stored fat into energy.*
This is an important nutrient for the heart. It regulates fatty build up
in the arteries by promoting healthy fat and cholesterol levels in the
blood.* If there is a decreased level of oxygen supply to the heart,
carnitine levels may drop.* Carnitine deficiency may play a part in
an amino acid that regulates the heartbeat, aids in fat digestion, the
absorption of fat soluble vitamins in the body and in controlling
cholesterol levels in the blood.* It is an important amino acid for
healthy heart function.* High concentration of Taurine is found in the
is a member of the carotenoid family and is a powerful newly discovered
antioxidant that helps protect against more types of free radicals than
any other antioxidant.* Astaxanthin
enhances the activity of vitamins C and E in the body, which are important
nutrients for the heart.* The natural form of Astaxanthin
is derived from the microalgae Haematococcus Pluvialis and is at least 10
times more effective as an antioxidant than beta- carotene. It is highly
bioavailable because it binds to a lipid ( fat ) molecule and enters the
bloodstream more readily than other antioxidants.* Astaxanthin
is a fat soluble nutrient that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier,
which enhances its effectiveness.* Astaxanthin
is 100-500 times more effective than vitamin E with blocking lipid
peroxidation, which is the destruction of fatty acids and proteins in cell
membranes that can cause oxidative damage.* Results from clinical studies
testing the safety of Astaxanthin
have shown no known toxicity. astaZANTHINTM
brand Astaxanthin is a highly concentrated natural extract from
H.pluvialis micro algae.
Red Grape Skin
is an excellent source of polyphenols (anthocyanins leucoanthocyanins).
Polyphenols form pigments of the deep red and blue in various fruits an
wines. Studies have shown these polyphenols to help promote cardiovascular
health.* Polyphenols in red grape skin protect the cardiovascular system
and function as antioxidants.* Their strong anti-oxidant properties
inhibit oxidation of "bad" cholesterol called low-density
lipoprotein (LDL).* LDL may be largely responsible for the build-up of
arterial plaque. Red grape skin polyhenols may exhibit stronger
antioxidant activity in neutralizing free radicals in the body than
beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E.*
is an essential mineral that promotes a healthy cardiovascular system by
helping with the proper functioning of the heart muscle.* It may be useful
in promoting healthy heart rhythms/heartbeats and blood pressure.*
Magnesium may also increase high-density lipoproteins (HDL), known as the
good cholesterol and inhibit platelet aggregation or clotting of red blood
is a mineral that helps with regulating heart and blood pressure
regulating mechanisms.* When Potassium levels are out of balance, nerves
and muscles do not function properly.
Health Plus® Psyllium as an excellent companion product for Heart Cleanse™.
Soluble fiber from foods such as Psyllium Husk, as part of a diet low in
saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.

- The cardiovascular system transports oxygen,
nutrients, hormones, antibodies and waste.
- The heart is responsible for pumping blood
throughout the entire body via the aorta, the main artery.
- The heart is made of the strongest muscle
fiber in the body.
- The heart beats more than 100,000 times in one
Cholesterol is a
natural substance produced by the body. It plays a key role in the
digestion and absorption of fats, oils and fat soluble vitamins from food.
This good cholesterol travels through the bloodstream to nourish cells.
cholesterol in the body can be manufactured from dietary fats, saturated
fats, refined sugars, carbohydrates and meats. In a healthy body, a
moderate amount of excess cholesterol can be eliminated through the
intestines or kept as fat reserve (triglycerides) in our cells and stored
for later use.
- Fat is the
principle form in which energy is stored in the body.
- Fat provides
our bodies with adequate insulation beneath the skin.
- A certain
amount of fat is necessary to supply the body with essential fatty
- Fat is needed
for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins from our food.
When too much
cholesterol and fat accumulates in the blood, it is converted into bad
cholesterol or LDL (low-density lipoprotein), and can clog the arteries.
