Even though February featured an awareness month for heart health, it does not mean that we should be unaware of the importance of doing all that we can to keep our hearts healthy throughout the year. And not just being aware but actually taking steps to support our cardiovascular systems.
Along with regular physical activity and a wholesome diet that is packed with plant-based foods, we can accentuate the positive for our hearts with AIM nutrition that works in supporting our cardio health. Here’s a look at the nutrients in three dietary supplements aimed straight to the heart.
One of the most beneficial nutrients at work in every active cell in our bodies is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and CellSparc 360 replenishes its presence. CoQ10 is an antioxidant at the center of cellular energy, pivotal for sparking its production in the mitochondria.
Like most essential compounds that our bodies can produce, less CoQ10 is made as a natural side of the aging process. Basically, between 550 and 1,500 milligrams of CoQ10 accounts for our whole-body content, but levels begin to decrease once we are in our twenties. Supplementing with CellSparc 360 is a healthy way to maintain sufficient levels of CoQ10.
Getting to the heart of CoQ10 being an essential nutrient, the heart is the hardest working organ in our bodies. It’s also the hardest working muscle, which is why CoQ10 is particularly abundant in the cells of our hearts. If that abundance lessens over time, well, the results are particularly bad for our hearts. So, make it your aim to supplement with CellSparc 360.
Essential Fatty Acids
Another of the most beneficial nutrients for our hearts is fat in the form of essential fatty acids (EFAs), and in particular, omega-3 EFAs provided by the flax seed source in AIMega. Flax seeds contain a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, which may be the seed’s most beneficial bioactive for cardiovascular effects, including antihypertensive activity, antiplatelet action and improved cardiac cell survival.
It is important to note that alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is “the parent essential fatty acid of the omega-3 family.” This means that other omega-3s, such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acids (EPA), are derived from plant sources of ALA. For example, the DHA and EPA in wild salmon is derived from plant food these fish consume. Phytoplankton accumulate ALA and convert it to the DHA and EPA that ends up in the tissues of wild salmon that eat these marine-based plants.
The most important takeaway is that humans (and fish) cannot synthesize essential fatty acids such as omega-3. It must come from dietary intake. AIMega supports the intake of this essential nutrient along with heart-healthy sources of omega-6.
Given that garlic is a vegetable belonging to the onion family, what can be said about it without mentioning a breath freshener? A lot. That’s because of its significant cardioprotective effect that is supported by a wealth of scientific literature. And taking GarlicAIM is a convenient way to ensure that we are getting enough of this beneficial herb in our nutritional profiles.
Garlic has long been used as a medicinal plant that delivers a variety of health benefits, especially for cardiovascular health as a result of its organosulfur compounds and antioxidant activity.
GarlicAIM delivers three types of garlic in a single dietary supplement, creating a unique natural health product. Garlic bulb extract, fermented black garlic and alpine wild garlic leaf are not found combined in other garlic products, making the GarlicAIM formulation a super supplement for targeting cardiovascular health.
