Cardiovascular Health

The cardiovascular system is complex, fascinating, and its optimal operation is essential to good health and longevity. Our hearts are at the core of this system, continuously pumping blood that distributes nutrients and other chemicals to every cell in the body, while also collecting cellular waste that gets either broken down or taken out of the body.

Your heart beats about 100,00 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. Give a tennis ball a good, hard squeeze. You're using about the same amount of force your heart uses to pump blood out to the body.

Regarding our circulatory system, by adulthood, we each have 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside our bodies – that's more than twice the distance around the world.

Clearly, the cardiovascular system produces a great deal of activity over the course of a lifetime, and it is therefore essential to nourish and care for this hardworking system.

Keys to supporting our cardiovascular systems:

  • Consume a healthy, plant rich diet (think the Mediterranean dietary pattern).
  • Consume heart friendly, anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids daily.
  • Choose anti-inflammatory strategies, including inflammation controlling herbs and nutritional factors.
  • Engage in daily physical activity.
  • Control stress, don’t smoke, get an annual check up with your health professional.

3Care has produced an omega-3 formula with science backed benefits for heart health for many years. Prescription Strength™ omega-3 delivers the same quantity of omega-3 fatty acids in the same ratio (EPA/DHA) as the number one prescription omega-3 drug, at a much lower price point. And like our other omega-3 formulas, Prescription Strength™ is produced in a Norwegian Pharmaceutically licensed facility.

Other formulas that support cardiovascular health include; Phyto Foundation, which delivers broad spectrum plant nutrients to help mimic the heart healthy Mediterranean dietary pattern, and Turbo Curcumin which delivers ultra bioavailable Turmeric. Research shows that curcuminoids from turmeric have anti-inflammatory activity that may be helpful for cardiovascular function and health.
