Kyolic Cardio Logic 60 caps by Kyolic
Cardio·Logic® is an exclusive formula designed by Arnold Fox, M.D., “The Anti-Aging Doctor”. Its unique combination of Aged Garlic Extract, L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), alpha-lipoic acid, vitamins E, B6, B12 and folate lowers elevated homocysteine levels and supports cardiovascular health*.
Excessive serum cholesterol and homocysteine can damage the cardiovascular system. Recent studies have concluded that elevated homocysteine levels may be an independent risk factor for the development of heart disease. Homocysteine damages cells that line the veins or arteries and stimulates the development of scar tissue in the damaged area. It has also been shown to both activate clotting factors and to hamper their inactivation.
Sufficient energy production is indispensable to maintain healthy heart function. Processes that regulate proper cardiac muscular function, such as nerve stimulation and actual beating of the heart, require a sufficient and continuous energy supply. To generate energy, cells burn the foods we eat for fuel. This sophisticated burning process is delicately regulated by several important factors including CoQ10, a-lipoic acid, vitamin B12 and L-carnitine, each of which is included in Cardio·Logic.
It is well known that oxidants/free radicals contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases. As long as antioxidants and free radicals are in balance, no serious problems arise. However, once free radicals overwhelm the internal or dietary antioxidant supply (due to poor eating habits, stress, sickness, injury, degenerative diseases, overexertion or other factors), free radicals begin to cause damage to cells and tissues (including the cardiovascular system) and can even disrupt their proper functioning. Supplemental antioxidants play a significant role in the body’s defense against an excess level of free radicals and the damage they can cause.
