Benefits of Heart Health

Helps to support and promote healthy circulatory and cardio functions.

Through the combination of K2 and Grape Seed Extract, Heart Health provides key nutrients known to help the body better utilize calcium and support healthy bones.

Heart

Scientific studies show that Grape Seed Extract (GSE) proanthocyanidins and Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) are powerful cardio protective compounds. GSE strengthens your arteries and capillaries through a number of mechanisms reducing the possibility for plaque forming in your arteries, lowers key inflammatory signals such as CRP, IL6 and TNFa and activates the enzyme known as nitric oxide synthase which produces the friendly nitric oxide so that blood can flow easier and smooth the regulation of your blood pressure. Nine randomized, controlled trials concluded GSE significantly lowered systolic blood pressure and heart rate.  A UC Davis one month GSE study resulted in the reduction of blood pressure along with reduced serum oxidized LDL cholesterol levels a biomarker of heart disease. Vitamin K2 ( Menaquinone-7) activates matrix GLA protein which has been shown to inhibit arterial calcification and arterial stiffening.  A 2016 study by the Journal of Medicinal Food found that Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) offers anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting TNF-a, IL-1a, and IL-1b gene expression. A major indicator for cardiovascular disease is the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in arterial walls and as the condition progresses calcification of atherosclerotic plaques occur leading to decreased elasticity of the vessels; GSE and its powerful antioxidant protection for your arteries along with Vitamin K2 with its inhibition of arterial calcification due to its matrix GLA activation could help reduce these plaques. The results of these studies would indicate Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin K2  supplementation for hypertension and cardiovascular conditions should be considered.

Bones

While the name sounds deceiving, IDNutrition's Heart Health formula is equally as beneficial for those looking to supplement bone health. Heart Health contains two ingredients frequently studied with regards to bone health - Vitamin K2 and Grape Seed Extract. While Vitamin K2 helps the body better utilize calcium, Grape Seed Extract helps support the healthy bones you already have. While this combination is a one two punch for cardio support, it shouldn't be overlooked with regards to bone health.

Menopause

You may not consider a supplement with the name "Heart Health" to be beneficial for the symptoms of menopause. However, the ingredients in IDNutrition's Heart Health formula have been well studied and evidence suggests that both Grape Seed Extract as well as Vitamin K2 both provide tremendous benefit for those experiencing the change of life.
