Cardiozen: “maintaining” Healthy Hearts
cardiozen will give you long-chain fatty acids and natural antioxidants, but the formulation is otherwise free of any additives, flavourings or synthetic compounds. Importantly, we only use natural-form oils: synthetic concentrates are not considered. The Omega-3 fish oil has been concentrated, but the Equazen process involves deconstructing the essential fatty acids, and then reassembling them back into natural form triglycerides.
Giving the body an adequate supply of vital fatty acids may assist the body in maintaining optimum health. Research on essential fatty acid compounds has shown effects in numerous areas of health including:
• Cardiovascular disease – Apolipoproteins - proteins made by the liver involved in fat metabolism. Different inherited versions or “isoforms” of various apolipoproteins exert an effect on risk for cardiovascular disease. The actions of Omega-3 PUFAs on relative apolipoprotein levels has been frequently observed to have a possible protective effect against cardiovascular illness. This may help maintain a healthy heart
• Blood triglycerides – EPA and DHA can lower high triglyceride levels. This may be implicated in the lowering of cholesterol levels such as the potentially harmful Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and lower Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL).The precise mechanism for these changes is still the subject of ongoing research. High cholesterol tri-glycerides, LDL and VLDL are associated with cardiovascular disease. This may help maintain a healthy heart
• Blood pressure – EPA lowers elevated blood pressure, possibly through the effects of series 3 prostaglandins (PGs) the production of which diverts precursor molecules to decrease levels of the blood pressure-raising 2PGs made from omega-6 fatty acids. This may help maintain a healthy heart
• Hormone effects – From EPA our body makes PG3 prostaglandins and series-5 leukotrienes, producing these less inflammatory molecules preferentially over the more inflammatory, Omega-6 derived series-2 PGs and series-4 leukotrienes. This reduced inflammatory hormonal background may have an elicit health benefits that impact on the chances of suffereing from strokes, heart attacks and cardiovascular complications. The presence of EPA is thought to help prevent the body's cells from making too many PG2 clot-forming prostaglandins. This may help maintain a healthy heart.
