Your heart is an important muscle that needs tender, loving care. While eating nutritious meals, engaging in regular exercise, and adopting a healthy lifestyle all support a healthy heart, your heart could also benefit from Isagenix products formulated to complement your heart-healthy lifestyle. Some of the benefits may surprise you.

Here are three great products that you can easily include in your Isagenix System to support a healthy heart.

1. Heart Shake Booster

Formulated with ingredients to support healthy cholesterol levels, Heart Shake Booster provides a blend of science-supported ingredients that may reduce the risk of heart disease † and support overall cardiovascular health. This product’s powerful ingredients include plant sterols, pantethine, and a proprietary blend inspired by the Mediterranean diet.

2. AMPED™ NOx

This performance booster supports nitric oxide production, which increases blood flow and oxygen delivery to cells. Scientific studies show that taking plant-based nitrates in the form of a concentrated drink can have cardioprotective effects (1).

3. IsaOmega

IsaOmega™ contains over 1 gram of total omega-3 fatty acids (0.6 grams of EPA and 0.48 grams of DHA) to help promote heart health. Both EPA and DHA have been found to be effective nutrients to support cardiovascular health (2, 3).

In addition to the products mentioned above, these three products have unexpected benefits to support heart health.

1. Ionix Supreme

Chronic stress has been associated with numerous negative outcomes that affect your cardiovascular health (4). Nutrient-rich Ionix® Supreme features a blend of adaptogens designed to protect against the negative effects of stress.

2. Slim Cakes®

These soft-baked oatmeal cookies are made with hearty whole oats and delicious berries, providing a high source of fiber. Oats are a rich source of beta-glucan, a type of fiber that can have benefits for heart health (5).

3. CytoActives™

This specialized product contains coenzyme Q10, vitamin D3, resveratrol, and adaptogens. Scientific evidence shows CoQ10 supports blood flow through the cardiovascular system with daily supplementation (6). Research has shown vitamin D is key to heart health and strength (7). Resveratrol may have benefits for the cardiovascular system by supporting healthy blood vessels, while adaptogens help strengthen the body’s ability to fight the effects of stress (8-11).

In addition to making smart diet and lifestyle choices, consider one of these Isagenix nutritional solutions to complement your heart-healthy lifestyle.

†Foods and supplements containing at least 0.65 grams per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Heart Shake Booster supplies 0.65 grams of plant sterol esters.
