Ortho Molecular Products' Cardimax is formulated with Hawthorne extracts, Carnitine, Taurine and Magnesium for nutritional support for healthy blood flow and heart muscle function.
Why These Natural Ingredients?
Berberine is a bright yellow alkaloid found in several medicinal plants. It has been shown to have numerous effects which benefit the heart such as enhanced coronary blood flow and oxygenation, decreased vasoconstriction, lowered blood pressure and strengthened heart contractility. Other studies have shown improved quality of life with decreased complications, rehospitalizations and mortality. The long and safe use of berberine sulfate makes it a perfect addition to this blend.
Hawthorne, called Crataegus by the herbalists that have used it for centuries, is considered to be a vital cardiotonic, effectively strengthening the contractile force of the heart while increasing blood flow and reducing blood pressure. Our Hawthorne extract is standardized for vitexin rhamnoside.
Taurine is known for helping balance calcium and potassium in muscle cells, and is an important factor in helping the heart muscle pump stronger. Several studies indicate taurine is a safe, effective therapeutic tool in the management of various types of cardiovascular conditions due to its positive inotropic effects. Human studies with L-carnitine supplementation have yielded significant clinical results in a variety of cardiovascular related trials. As secondary amino acids, both help support the energy of cardiac muscle tissue and help balance calcium and potassium— vital for efficient heart function.
Quercetin, a bioflavonoid with numerous beneficial properties has been shown to have remarkable effects in both induced and spontaneous animal models of hypertension. These benefits seem to be related to quercetin’s antioxidant properties which result in endothelial and end-organ protection.
