How NutriShield Helps Support a Healthy Heart
Heart disease is caused by two main (largely preventable) factors1.
1. LDL cholesterol becomes oxidised and builds up within arteries,
triggering inflammation and restricting blood supply.
2. An amino acid called homocysteine can build up in the bloodstream over time. This causes irritation to arterial blood vessels and becomes a risk factor for blood clots, heart attacks, atrial arrhythmias, strokes and heart failure.
How Nutrition may help both problems
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.
So NutriShield contains an unusual combination of 11 anti-inflammatories.
Anti-inflammatories help reduce platelet stickiness. They also substantially reduce the risk of oxidised LDL cholesterol collecting in inflamed artery walls and then accumulating calcium deposits to become calcified. A state of atheroma.
Anti-inflammatories help ensure 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 especially 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 bloodstream 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.
