Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals CardioChol
Nearly two-thirds of Australians have modifiable risk factors that may contribute to poor cardiovascular health. Diet and lifestyle changes can significantly reduce this risk, for example cessation of smoking and improving diet and physical activity.
Vitamin C may help support cardiovascular health. Cholesterol is converted to bile acids, with vitamin C involved in the initial rate-limiting step.[2,3] Vitamin B5 is also involved in this process as a precursor to coenzyme A, an essential step in lipid metabolism. The antioxidant actions of vitamin C protect important molecules in the body, like lipids, from oxidative damage, decreasing lipid peroxidation.[2,5] Vitamin C is also involved in the synthesis of collagen, which is particularly important for vascular elasticity and therefore normal healthy artery function.
French maritime pine bark may also be beneficial to help maintain cardiovascular health, by reducing passive dilation and stretching to support vascular tone and elasticity, which may help relieve varicose veins.
Antioxidants are important in all areas of health, including cardiovascular health.
Vitamin C is a vitally important antioxidant that may help reduce the risk of cell damage attributed to reactive oxygen species, as well as being a part of the regeneration process of endogenous antioxidants.
French maritime pine bark and bergamot juice are also sources of antioxidants; maritime pine bark being a rich source of the flavonoids procyanidins and phenolic acids, and bergamot containing polyphenolic compounds.
