Our cardiovascular supplements are specially designed to support healthy heart function.
CoQuinone 100 (CoQ10 supplement) is an antioxidant that supports healthy cardiovascular function, energy production, and helps reduce oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is when cells aren’t performing their best because of the presence of too many oxygen molecules in them.
The heart is one of the hardest working organs in the body, so it has cells with high energy demands. This means the cells contain high levels of CoQ10. CoQ10 has been studied for years in the US, Europe and Japan for its role in producing cellular energy and re-energising the heart and other muscles. Several human clinical trials demonstrate maintenance of good heart function.
You can find CoQ10 in meat and fish!
Why USANA’s CoQuinone 100?
Clinical tests performed in USANA’s laboratories show that CoQuinone 100 delivers CoQ10 in much
higher quantities than from solid formulations or from competitive liquid formulations, making CoQuinone 100 more bioavailable than other CoQ10 products.
Proflavanol C100 provides a powerful antioxidant formula with a combination of grape seed extract and Poly C™. It aids in protection against free radical damage and supports healthy cardiovascular function. Specifically, it helps maintain normal healthy blood vessels and capillaries, blood circulation and healthy vascular function.
BiOmega is USANA’s high quality, ultra-pure and natural fish oil supplement. It supplies the important omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in a convenient capsule form. These nutrients help support normal, healthy heart function, nerve and myelin function and helps maintain good joint health.
You can find polyunsaturated fats in nuts, seeds, vegetable oils, and fatty fish.
Fish oil is a good fat!
While we shouldn’t go overboard on fats, we should also pay attention to the type of fats we consume. Saturated fats ‑ found in meat and take-away foods ‑ help to promote the formation of artery-clogging fatty deposits. The trans-fatty acids found in partially hydrogenated margarines and shortening hidden in baked foods (cookies and cakes) and in fried fast foods are even more harmful to our health. Polyunsaturated fats, such as the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, are the most beneficial fats.
