How NutriShield Helps Support a Healthy Heart

How NutriShield Helps Support a Healthy Heart NutriShield Multi Vitamins and Minerals

Heart disease is caused by two main (largely preventable) factors1.

First, LDL cholesterol becomes oxidised and builds up within arteries, triggering inflammation and restricting blood supply.

Secondly, an amino-acid called homocysteine can build up in the blood stream over time. High homocysteine levels cause irritation to arterial blood vessels. This then becomes a risk factor for blood clots, heart attacks, atrial arrhythmias, strokes and heart failure.

Nutrishield helps prevent both problems via a multiple ingredients.

A combination of Vitamins C and E and supported by Omega 3, the phyto-nutrients in grapeseed, bilberry and green tea extracts, curcumin plus the carotenoids lutein and lycopene – are all powerful anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. The minerals magnesium and selenium support them.

This unusual combination of 11 anti-inflammatories helps reduce platelet stickiness. It also substantially reduces the risk of oxidised LDL cholesterol collecting in inflamed artery walls - and then accumulating calcium deposits to become calcified. A state of atheroma.

This combination, in turn, helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure and ensures a better blood flow to the heart and brain. Vitamin K2 is an important additional ingredient to help prevent calcification2.

Homocysteine levels are reduced by vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid – and espoecially by a nutrient called betaine3 derived from beetroot and wheatgerm. Betaine is included in the NutriShield formula, but rarely in other supplements.

Nutrishield also supports your heart by what it does NOT contain.

Turbulence in the blood stream breaks up older red blood cells, releasing free iron – which is a powerful oxidant and therefore not what you want.

For this reason, Nutrishield does not include iron – unless you are a woman of pre-menopausal age, in which case you can request it free with your order.

Doctors often say that what is good for the heart is good for the brain – and you can see why. Smooth blood flow to both organs is essential – as it is for sexual health.
