Product Description

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S. making cardiovascular health a top health priority. Keeping your heart healthy means maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, reducing inflammation, and ensuring healthy circulation and  blood pressure. Proper nutrition is vital to all these steps towards a healthy heart.

Core Health Product’s Heart Health is a superior product combining powerful heart-healthy ingredients like garlic and bilberry with effective levels of CoQ10, chromium, magnesium, and pomegranate in a unique proprietary blend.

Proprietary Heart Blend
Garlic, bilberry, and pomegranate are all natural foods with a history of use promoting heart health, and modern clinical studies have now demonstrated their potential to reduce cholesterol, improve circulation, and lower blood pressure. These natural antioxidants are combined with nutrients such as CoQ10, niacin, magnesium, and chromium that are essential to promoting healthy circulation, healthy blood pressure, and healthy blood lipids.

BioCore Lipase
Core Health Product’s Heart Health formula further differentiates itself by including a distinctive blend of lipases to ensure maximum lipase activity. Lipase is the enzyme required to break down fats. Including lipase in this unique formula helps ensure the body is able to better utilize fats; both consumed and stored.

Maximum Enzyme Delivery System (M.E.D.S.)
Every Core Health Product includes our proprietary nutrient delivery system, known as M.E.D.S.™. This proprietary system uses the power of enzymes and fully-utilizable micronutrients to delivery maximum results.

The exceptional combination of ingredients in Core Health Product’s Heart Health formula helps maintain a strong and healthy cardiovascular system, healthy blood pressure, and healthy blood lipid levels.

Key Benefits:

  • Supports a healthy cardiovascular system.
  • Promotes healthy blood pressure.
  • Supports healthy blood lipids.
  • Provides natural antioxidants for healthy circulation.
  • Increases the digestion and utilization of fats from food.
  • Includes M.E.D.S. to maximize results.

Core Heart Health Formula combines traditional heart healthy ingredients like garlic and bilberry with effective levels of CoQ10, chromium, magnesium and pomegranate in a unique proprietary blend.

 

BioCore®Lipo is a distinctive blend of a variety of lipases to ensure maximum lipase activity. Lipase is the enzyme that breaks down fats. Including lipase in this unique formula ensures the body is able to properly process fats.

 

Proprietary Heart Blend

  • Bilberry is naturally rich in antioxidants and has been the subject of recent research examining its potential circulatory and cardioprotective benefits. CHP’s bilberry is standardized to 25% anthocyanidins – an important group of antioxidants found in plants.
  • Chromium has been shown to enhance insulin function and promote healthy glucose and cholesterol levels. The chromium included in CHP’s Heart Health is a patented form of chromium that binds chromium to niacin (as nicotinic acid) and the amino acid, glycine, in a stable bond that allows it to be absorbed better and utilized better by the body because it is in the active form the body needs.
  • CoQ10 or coenzyme Q10 is the key component in the cell’s ability to generate energy. CoQ10 levels tend to fall as we age and are depleted by common medications used for diabetes and cholesterol (e.g. statin medications and glucophage). Researchers have found adequate CoQ10 levels are necessary for proper organ function.
  • Garlic has a long history of use and is used in Europe for healthy cholesterol levels and to support overall cardiovascular health. Over 2500 scientific papers have been published in the last 30 years examining the various aspects of the chemistry, pharmacology and clinical applications of garlic.
  • Magnesium is an essential mineral that is not only required for general health, but also plays a key role in promoting healthy blood pressure and cardiovascular health. Magnesium deficiency is linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The magnesium in CHP’s Heart Health is patented amino acid chelated magnesium. 
  • Niacinamide is a form of the essential B vitamin – niacin. It plays an important role in cardiovascular health, healthy cholesterol levels and circulation.
  • Pomegranate is a natural concentrated source of vitamins and antioxidants, especially polyphenols and has been researched for its potential cardioprotective benefits. Unlike most pomegranate extracts, CHP’s pomegranate is standardized to contain 40% punicosides. Punicosides are the key active component of pomegranate thought to be responsible for its unique health benefits.

Allergens:
No major allergens
(Contains no milk, egg, wheat, soy, peanuts, nuts, corn, fish or shellfish.)

Drug/Nutrient Interactions:
Consult your health practitioner and/or pharmacist if you are using:

  • Blood-pressure medications: CoQ10 may reduce blood pressure and may result in additive effects when taken with drugs or herbs that lower blood pressure.
  • Blood-thinning drugs such as Coumadin (warfarin), heparin, aspirin, Plavix or Trental may interact with the ingredients of Heart Health.
  • Cholesterol lowering medications deplete CoQ10 levels in the body. Some studies suggest there may be a benefit of supplementing with CoQ10 when taking cholesterol lowering medications.
  • Niacin may increase the effectiveness of statin medications in lowering cholesterol.
  • Glucose-lowering medications: Chromium may reduce the need for glucose-lowering medications.
