According to The National Center for Health Statistics:
76 million Americans (33.5%) 20 years and older have high blood pressure. 29.7% of all 20 year olds are estimated to be pre-hypertensive. (According to latest figures available)
Coronary heart disease
Coronary heart disease is caused by atherosclerosis, the narrowing of the coronary arteries due to fatty build ups of plaque. It's likely to produce angina pectoris (chest pain), heart attack or both.
Coronary heart disease caused 494,382 deaths in 2002 and is the single leading cause of death in America today.
• You or someone you are close to may have coronary heart disease (CHD).
• If you do nothing, you too may become a statistic.
The traditional approach to CHD is reactionary, that means the treatment of symptoms follows a diagnosis. However, according to the American Heart Association, prevention should be the highest priority in CHD. Rather than being frightened by the statistics, we can be empowered by the fact that we have a choice in the matter, if we take action.
Artery Health - more powerful than ever.
Rejuvenetics™ updated the formula using the latest scientific research while maintaining the foundation of the first generation product. Rejuvenetics™ has formulated a product that, if taken on a regular basis, can reduce your chances of nutrient deficiencies and provide the nutrients necessary for a healthy cardiovascular system and blood pressure.
There are many causes of chronic inflammation which eventually lead to atherosclerosis (plaque formation). Plaque formation is a natural reaction of the body to an injury by free radicals. Antioxidants are powerful free radical scavengers that protect the delicate lining of the blood vessels before an injury can occur.
The unique formula provides a carefully designed and balanced combination of well established cardioprotective ingredients, such as Magnesium; ALA, the natural and much more effective form of Vitamin E; CoQ-10 & B Vitamins. Also in the formula are the latest discoveries in natural heart health such as Beet Juice, Cocoa, Cinnamon Bark Extract and Dandelion for blood pressure and circulation support.
Magnesium: Activates 100 enzymes and is necessary for every major biological process. This mineral plays an important role in the maintenance of the electrical and physical integrity of the heart muscle.
Hawthorne Berries: An excellent source of powerful antioxidants, Hawthorne has been found to help protect LDL from oxidation, the process that could compromise heart health.
Grape Seed Extract: A key ingredient in Artery Health which provides powerful antioxidant protection.
Coenzyme Q-10: CoQ-10 is not only a powerful antioxidant enzyme which helps inhibit oxidation of LDL, it is also needed for energy, especially in the heart where energy demands are the greatest. Taking Statins may reduce your natural levels of CoQ-10, which may have serious health consequences. CoQ-10 serves many functions such as supporting heart and blood vessel health, maintaining healthy blood pressure levels if already within normal range and increasing mitochondrial energy in cells.
In addition to these more traditional ingredients which have a long history of being known for their cardioprotective qualities, Artery Health is on the cutting edge of science by utilizing the latest discoveries in heart health such as:
Cinnamon Bark Extract: Cinnamon has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to help insulin signaling. In a recent study Cinnamon intake of 1/4 teaspoon per day helped reduce blood pressure, fasting glucose, waist circumference, and body mass.
Beet Juice: Beet Juice is an excellent source of nitrite which can be a potential vasodilator in humans (expands blood vessels to help blood flow). Studies have shown that beet root juice may help reduce blood pressure for up to 24 hours after ingestion.
Natural Cocoa Powder: Rich in polyphenols, Cocoa has been shown in human studies to increase arterial flow, help lower high blood pressure, increase HDL (good cholesterol) and reduce oxidized LDL (bad cholesterol).
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): Dysfunction of the Mitochondria, the cell’s energy powerhouse, may contribute to the regulation of blood pressure and vascular tone. Studies have shown that when combined with CoQ-10, or vitamin E, ALA helps support healthy mitochondrial function, antioxidant defenses and cardiovascular health.
Bromelain: This proteolytic enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple is known to possess anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, bromelain has been shown to help thin the blood, support healthy movement of blood platelets, and provide cardioprotection in general. L-arginine: L-arginine supplementation increases nitric oxide, which helps blood vessels relax and improve circulation.
Factors that may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease:
• Quit smoking.
• Cut back on foods high in saturated fat and refined sugars.
• Check blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels and keep them under control.
• Lose weight if you are overweight and keep at a healthy weight.
• Supplement your diet with high quality supplements.
While supplements are not designed to treat any illness including CHD, many medical authorities (including the AMA), are recommending supplements as part of a daily regimen. Artery Health® can play a vital role in your quest for a healthy lifestyle.
