|Heart Response Supports the Cardiovascular System
Heart Response combines hawthorn, L-carnitine, and CoQ10 with other herbs,
nutrients, and antioxidants to support cardiovascular function. Research suggests
that hawthorn has the ability to increase the strength of contraction of the
heart, and to increase coronary blood flow. Carnitine and CoQ10 both play roles
in energy generation, which is necessary for the continuous work performed by
the heart muscle.
Heart Response - Comprehensive Support for a Healthy Heart
Heart Response was formulated to include key nutrients and herbs known to support
the cardiovascular system.
Hawthorn, a rich source of flavonoids and procyanidins, has been used traditionally
all over the world as a strengthening circulatory and heart tonic. Modern
research has documented that hawthorn increases coronary blood flow and strengthens
the contraction of heart muscle. Hawthorn is also an antioxidant, which scavenges
and neutralizes destructive free radicals. It is only when cholesterol is
oxidized that it impacts the integrity of arteries.
- Coenzyme Q10:
HEART RESPONSE supplies 60 mg daily of CoQ10, a key enzyme in the Electron
Transport Chain, the pathway that generates 90% of the ATP "energy currency"
needed by the body. Heart muscle requires huge amounts of energy to perform
efficiently - it beats more than 100,000 times each day, pumping more than
1,000 gallons of blood through the body. The heart utilizes ATP as an energy
source for muscular contraction. CoQ10 also is a fat-soluble antioxidant.
Carnitine is an amino acid-derived substance that supports heart muscle metabolism.
Carnitine is needed to carry long chain fatty acids into the cell mitochondria,
where they undergo oxidation to generate energy. The heart utilizes fatty
acids as a preferred energy source for its metabolism. HEART RESPONSE delivers
300 mg per day of carntine.
- Taurine and Magnesium:
Magnesium and taurine work closely together in the body to help maintain the
normal electrical rhythm of the heart. Taurine comprises more than 50% of
the free amino acid pool in our hearts, and has many electrophysiological
effects on cardiac muscle cells. Alterations in magnesium levels can have
profound effects on the heart. Magnesium is involved in autonomic control
of the heart through several mechanisms.
Bromelain is an enzyme mixture prepared from pineapple stems. Pineapple has
been used for its health benefits for more than 500 years.
- Grape Seed Extract:
Grape seed is a source of procyanidins. These plant constituents are strong
antioxidants that inhibit lipid peroxidation and scavenge free radicals. In
vitro studies have demonstrated that procyanidins support the integrity of
The use of garlic for its health benefits predates written history. Garlic's
volatile oil includes sulfur-containing compounds such as allicin, which are
considered to be important biological constituents.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is necessary for the activity
of the important antioxidant glutathione. Antioxidants are crucial for protecting
cholesterol from oxidation, which in turn helps to maintain healthy blood
Preventing an undesirable buildup of homocysteine levels may help support
the integrity of arteries. Vitamins B-6, B-12 and folic acid are critical
to the regulation of homocysteine levels.
