Heart and Liver Care
Our Heart keeps our blood flowing and the Liver keeps our blood clean from toxins. The two organs are vital to human survival and maintain healthy bodily functions. The involuntary pumping of our cardiac muscles require lots of energy and the liver cells are constantly under the threat of free radicals damage. Support our heart and liver the easy way with Kordel's.
The Heart is a muscular organ which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system involuntarily. Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, as well as assisting in the removal of metabolic wastes. A poor functioning heart may increase the risk of cardiovascular event. Hence, providing the heart with supportive nutrients is important.
Co-enzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is a compound that helps generate energy in your cell mitochondria. Also, it acts as a powerful antioxidant protecting the body from oxidative stress and free radicals damage. Your body produces CoQ10 naturally, but its production tends to decrease with age. The long term usage of Statin (cholesterol medication) too reduces CoQ10 level in the body. CoQ10 is best taken in divided dose for optimal result.
Fish Oil is commonly known for its health benefit for the heart due to its Omega-3 essential fatty acids which has shown to have anti-inflammation property and is beneficial to improve heart health including lowering cholesterol level. The recent study shows that Vitamin K2 is another essential vitamin that exhibit its heart protective property through activating the Matrix GLA Protein and protect against calcification as well as reducing the cardiovascular risk by almost 50%.
Magnesium is central to a healthy heart rhythm because it's involved in transporting other electrolytes, such as calcium and potassium, into cells. Electrolytes are all-important for nerve signals and the muscle contractions of a normal heartbeat. Magnesium also helps to relax the blood vessels and improve high blood pressure.
Liver, the largest internal organ that has many functions in the body, including making proteins and blood clotting factors, manufacturing triglycerides and cholesterol, glycogen synthesis, and bile production. The liver is involved in metabolizing many toxins, including drugs and medications, chemicals, and natural substances. Many different disease processes can occur in the liver, including infections such as hepatitis, fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis (hardening), cancers, and damage by medications or toxins. Hence, it is essential to support and protect the liver with the right nutrients to maintain it at the optimal health.
Milk Thistle is a superb herbal remedy for the liver. Its main component, Silymarin - a group of antioxidants that has protective effect on liver cells against free radicals damage. Milk Thistle works best when taken together with Lecithin.
Curcumin is the major constituent of the spice turmeric. Its health benefit mainly comes from its superb anti-inflammatory function in inhibiting the NF-kb, one of the main inflammation pathways. With Theracurmin®, an innovative curcumin formulation with enhanced absorption and bioavailability, it ensures a better and more effective delivery of Curcumin health benefits.
SAM - e
S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) is a pleotropic molecule and also the principal methyl donor in Methylation process. SAM-e supplementation restores hepatic glutathione (GSH) deposits and attenuates liver injury. SAM-e is particularly important in opposing the toxicity of free oxygen radicals generated by various pathogens, including alcohol, which cause oxidative stress and by its metabolite acetaldehyde.
