Heart Health Q & A with Dr. Ignarro
By Louis Ignarro, Ph.D. Nobel† Laureate in Medicine
Q: Why should Core Complex become part of my daily routine?
A: Core Complex daily supplement packettes target four key areas of heart health maintenance: cholesterol, triglycerides, homocysteine and oxidative stress.* Cholesterol is an important marker for heart health, but triglycerides, another kind of blood fat, are also important markers of cardiovascular health. Homocysteine is an amino acid found naturally in your body, although excessive homocysteine levels in the blood often lead to serious heart health conditions. And perhaps most importantly, along with a low-fat diet and exercise, supplementation is the first line of defense against numerous heart health risk factors. (Herbalifeline® softgels and Tri-Shield® softgels are included in Core Complex.)
Q: How is Neptune Krill Oil unique?
A: Actually, Neptune Krill Oil or NKO®‡ comes from a tiny crustacean in the Antarctic. NKO®‡ is unique from fish oils in that it contains three groups of heart-healthy compounds; not only the Omega-3 fatty acids, but also a healthy blend of phospholipids and antioxidants. This unique blend helps to maintain cardiovascular health by counteracting oxidative stress.* In other words, NKO®‡ is a powerful antioxidant.
Q: Why is it important to start taking heart health supplements now?
A: Don't wait. The best way to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system is to start now, before you have developed risk factors for heart disease. Along with a low-fat diet and exercise, the active ingredients in Core Complex, Tri-Shield®, Niteworks®, Herbalifeline® and Mega Garlic Plus help to maintain key heart health indicators already within a normal range.* It is wise to consider a heart health program today.
Foods containing at least 0.65 gram per serving of plant sterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A packette of Core Complex supplies 1.3 grams of plant sterols.
