Targeted Nutrition for Healthy Heart and Cardiovascular Function
CardioVen™, formerly Heart Complex,is a targeted botanical formula that contains the ideal phytonutrient synergists which, when combined together, promote healthy cardiovascular circulation, heart rate and blood pressure.
Heart Medication is Not the Way to Go - Medical Drugs: 3rd Leading Cause of Death
Alarming numbers of people are affected with heart disease: almost 1 in 4 Americans (about 58 million) live with some type of heart problem such as high blood pressure, chest pain, shortness of breath, arrhythmia (irregular heart beats), headaches, tiredness and more. Not knowing what to do, most will turn to medical drugs. But beware, even the American Medical Association's own 1999 study listed the use of properly prescribed medical drugs as the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States (most likely due to their hazardous, life shortening side effects).
Other than medication, conventional medical treatment primarily uses two approaches to heart disease. The first approach, angioplasty, is the insertion of a catheter which places a plastic balloon into the heart's arteries with the intention of opening it. However, this is a high risk procedure which may induce a heart attack, make the blockage worse or even cause death (New England Journal of Medicine, 1992). Many blockages return to their original severity within a year.
The second approach is coronary artery bypass graft surgery or CABG (nicknamed "cabbage"). It is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States and costs up to $50,000 per procedure. CABG surgeries generate over $18 billion a year. A common side effect of the CABG is cerebral dysfunction causing memory loss and mental decline. Another study published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that CABG "appears neither to prolong life nor to prevent myocardial infarction (heart attack)."
Getting to the Root Cause of Heart Disease
The Western Hemisphere leads the world in the percentage of population with heart disease. For many years now, doctors have blamed eating the wrong type of food, overeating, too little exercise, smoking, and stress as the major risk factors. The latest research has added a few more, such as free radicals, pollution, poor circulation, certain drugs and chemicals, undetected infections, and a decreased ability of the blood to digest protein, which may lead to the formation of blood clots. When protein is no longer broken down due to insufficient protelytic enzymes, the most likely consequences are heart attacks, phlebitis, and strokes.
The major physical cause of coronary heart disease, however, is the overeating of animal protein. When stored in the body, protein becomes one of the greatest risk factors of heart disease and most other diseases as well. One of the latest finds as to the cause of arterial damage and inflammation is the protein homocysteine, found in high concentrations in meat. This substance is now believed to be the main reason behind blood clots triggering heart attack.
Statistics reveal that meat consumption in the Western Hemisphere has increased 725 percent (most of this increase occurring after World War II) in less than 180 years and heart attacks rose by 20 times. The incredibly popular high protein diets and advertisers that promote eating protein for health indicates that this percentage will continue to rise. Mounting evidence now suggests that a vegetarian diet, high in plant-foods, good fats and moderate complex carbohydrates is the best defense against heart disease and heart disease related illnesses such as high blood pressure.
