Overview of the cardiovascular system.
The heart and circulatory system make up the cardiovascular system. The heart works as a pump that pushes blood to the organs, tissues, and cells of your body. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to every cell and removes the carbon dioxide and waste products made by those cells. Blood is carried from your heart to the rest of your body through a complex network of arteries, arterioles, and capillaries. Blood is returned to your heart through venules and veins. The circulatory systems also help to maintain the acid-base balance of the body, prevents haemorrhages by forming blood clots and helps regulate boy temperature.
Common Pathology associated with the circulatory system.
- Varicose veins
- Coronary artery disease (narrowing of the arteries)
- Heart attack (Myocardial infarction)
- Abnormal heart rhythms or arrythmias
- Heart failure
- Heart valve disease
- Congenital heart disease
- Heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy)
- Pericardial disease
- Aorta disease and Marfan syndrome
- Vascular disease (blood vessel disease)

NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus™
NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus™provides a complete omega-3 profile of salmon oil with all eight members of the omega3 fatty acid family, assuring complete omega-3 supplementation in every dose. Salmon Oil Plus™ is safe, with no risk of accumulated toxins. Only the finest, top quality, health-screened, disease-free fish selected for human consumption are used. All sources are screened for more than 200 potential contaminants with an allowable detection limit of ZERO
Omega-3 supplementation is important for the circulatory system.
Salmon Oil Plus is important for the coronary arteries as it contains EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and has been clinically proven reduce triglyceride levels (1) and platelet aggregation thus reducing blood viscosity and lowering blood pressure. EPA and DHA help reduce Pro-atherogenic cytokines (pro inflammatory mediators), improve Endothelial function, reduce vascular occlusion, and the course of coronary atherosclerosis is mitigated (2). Heart rate is reduced, and heart rate variability is increased by EPA and DHA (2). For More information or to purchase NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus please click here
NeoLife Lipotropic Adjunct Oil Plus™
NeoLife Lipotropic Adjunct Lipo-Plus is a leading edge product intended for use in conjunction with a nutritious balanced diet. It provides nutrients shown to play essential roles in maintaining the health of the circulatory system. Deficiencies of the essential participants in the homocysteine cycle can contribute to the build-up of homocysteine to toxic levels. GNLD’s special formula provides balanced amounts of lipotropic factors and other nutrients known to support the healthy metabolism of homocysteine.
NeoLife Lipotropic Adjunct is important for the circulatory system.
Lipotropic factors (choline and inositol) are essential for the production of lipoproteins like chylomicrons and Very low density lipoprotein Vldl, these lipotropic factors help keep lipids (fats) emulsified in the bloodstream and also stop the build-up of fatty deposits in the liver.
B-vitamins help assure proper metabolism of homocysteine, Folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12, nutrients known to lower blood levels of homocysteine, a compound which when found in high concentrations in the body can lead to cardiovascular-related diseases.
Betaine hydrochloride, helps create an environment conducive to vitamin B12 absorption. Betaine is itself involved in homocysteine metabolism.
Citrus bioflavonoids, including hesperidin, Research shows that citrus bioflavonoids, especially hesperidin, may help keep blood vessels soft and pliable, supporting healthy circulation. For More information or to purchase NeoLife Lipotropic Adjunct please click here
NeoLife Vitamin E Complex
NeoLife Vitamin E Complex is nature’s “master antioxidant” and an essential nutrient, vitamin E supports overall health and vitality. Research especially links higher vitamin E levels with strengthened immunity and cardiovascular health. GNLD’s Vitamin E Plus is more than just alpha-tocopherol: It provides balanced ratios of the entire vitamin E family of tocopherols and tocotrienols as they exist in whole foods. Its water-miscible foundation is pure, cold-pressed wheat germ oil with lecithin, a natural emulsifier which allows for improved absorbtion.
NeoLife Vitamin E Complex supplementation is a potent antioxid of the circulatory system.
Vitamin E is the major lipid-soluble antioxidant in the cell antioxidant defence system, It is located primarily within the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes. One of the major contributors to artheralsclerois and cardiovascular disease is the oxidation of LDL (low density lipoproteins) molecules. LDL's are responsible for transporting cholesterol and lipids in the blood. Oxidized LDL is known to increase the expression of pro-inflammatory genes, leading to immune cell recruitment into the vessel wall and dysfunction of vascular endothelial cells of the blood vessle (3). Vitamin E’s protects PUFA (pure unsaturated fatty acids omega 3 and 6) and other components of cell membranes and low-density lipoprotein from oxidation by free radicals thus protecting against cardiovascular disease.
