The cardiovascular system includes the heart, blood vessels, veins, and capillaries. The heart must beat regularly to pump adequate amounts of blood throughout the body so that all body organs and tissues get a continual supply of oxygen and nutrients. A healthy vascular system is open, unobstructed, rich in magnesium, l-carnitine, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, l-taurine, as well as many other nutrients, all which cumulatively help insure continual cardiovascular health. Optimal cardiovascular health can be maintained by supplying the body with key nutrients throughout our life. Daily intake of critical nutrients helps ensure that our heart and blood vessels are well nourished.
Clogged blood vessels can lead to many serious health problems. Obstruction of the coronary vessels is often preceded by a narrowing of the arteries caused by atherosclerotic deposits made up of cholesterol, lipids, and lipoproteins (commonly referred to as hardening of the arteries). Several dietary factors are thought to influence coronary artery disease by promoting atherosclerosis and/or thrombosis (clotting). Of these dietary factors, the undesirable effects of dietary fat (particularly saturated fat) on homocysteine and cholesterol metabolism are well documented.
The importance of beneficial dietary components such as unsaturated fats (omega 3 & 6 fatty acids), trans fatty acids, antioxidants, herbs and phytonutrients, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and fiber cannot be overlooked and should be considered as supplemental support to cardiovascular health. Further, it is not known whether these effects of diet are additive or interact in a more subtle way. It is clear, however, that coronary artery disease is not controlled by any single characteristic of the diet.

|Essential fatty acids are "good fats" that are absolutely necessary for the reproduction of cells. We also need them as part of the many natural biochemical processes of the body. They are called "essential" because each cell in our body needs a supply of them each and every day. They are also called "essential" because they must be taken in from our diets or in supplement form. As part of a healthy lifestyle, supplementing daily with essential fatty acids helps to keep our bodies functioning at their peak. This formula combines the beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are most important to our health. Omega-3 EFAs are utilised by the body in several key areas that help influence general wellbeing. As phospholipid components of cell membranes throughout the body, they support healthy cell function and fluidity. Additionally omega-3 EFAs provide anti-inflammatory activity, and also support the maintenance of healthy brain function and healthy triglyceride levels.|
