Supplementation for Cardiovascular Health, Part 1
June 16, 2020
The cardiovascular system can be divided into three main components: the heart, blood vessels (arteries, veins, capillaries), and blood. Each element of this triad has to constantly be at its best to allow the entire system to function properly and to ensure that each cell of the body receives the oxygen and nutrients it needs to thrive, as well as unload the by-products of normal cellular respiration such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and other metabolic by-products. Dr. Neil Levin, Senior Nutrition Education Manager and a product formulator for NOW(r) Foods and Protocol for Life Balance, details the benefits of three compounds, each acting at a different level of the cardiovascular system: menaquinone-7 (MK-7), ubiquinol, and nattokinase.
