Women’s Heart Health: How Hormones Increase Your Risk
 

Video Transcript:

Today, I want to talk to you about women’s heart health and the influence of our hormones in keeping us heart-healthy. And this is really impactful for women, particularly, who are going through hormonal imbalances. Whether they are teens and young adults or women in their mid-life age, maybe dealing with perimenopause and menopause and post-menopause, there is a direct influence and link between the balance of your hormones and the state of your cardiovascular health.

This is really complex, and to be honest with you, as a functional medicine provider, the majority of my patients are not tuned in or clued into this deep connection because our medical community doesn’t always educate, and we don’t always hear the need to test hormones, specifically if you have a family history of cardiovascular disease, or heart disease, or any type of risk of heart attacks and strokes.

So today, I want to share with you some important pieces to consider, especially when it comes to your potential risk for blood clots and your risk of heart attack, or stroke, or progression of heart disease, because your estrogen balance and your progesterone balance directly influence the state of your vascular function.

The Role of Estrogen in Women’s Heart Health

Particularly, I’m going to talk about estrogen right now. Estrogen modulates vascular function [1], and it also influences your inflammatory response. And it has a direct influence on both your metabolic process and insulin receptivity. So, if you are aware that you have insulin sensitivity or glucose intolerance, estrogen will be an underlying influence in that resistance or intolerance – your sensitivity.

Now, why is this important? Well, if you have an imbalance, either too high or too low levels of estrogen, then that directly impacts the modulation of your cardiovascular system. We know that estrogen, when it’s imbalanced, individuals will experience elevations of LDL and a reduction in HDL. We also can notate certain triglycerides being imbalanced, and even patients being diagnosed with fatty livers, and it’s a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Insulin sensitivity is directly linked to that, and that overwhelm and influence can cause inflammation in the cardiovascular channel and kick-off metabolic syndrome, which is an underlying factor to causing or elevating your risk behind stroke and heart disease.

So, estrogen becomes really important for us to look at evaluating. There’s also a direct correlation to when we, as women, naturally go through hormonal changes where our estrogen output and our estrogen production decreases. That tendency where we have elevations in LDL and reductions in HDL increase.

And so, you will notice that if you’ve gone through menopause, that your normal labs, your everyday lifestyle has not changed. The only thing that’s changed are your estrogen output levels and the receptivity of estrogen in your body. And you’re also notating labs elevating LDL, and you’re starting to have your doctor talk to you about taking statins. Well, simply balancing estrogen and supporting your liver’s metabolic function of metabolizing estrogen can help you reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke, and ultimately help balance out your hormones.

Progesterone’s Influence on Heart Health – The Missing Link?

Now, on the flip side, progesterone also has a massive influence. And in my opinion, as a naturopathic doctor, I feel like progesterone is the missing link for a lot of women in terms of the connection between hormone imbalance and heart disease. And if you’re looking at reversing, limiting, or lowering your risk, it’s really important you fine-tune your progesterone levels.

Why is this important? Well, progesterone naturally is a vasorelaxant [2]. It helps to minimize the kind of stress of our vascular system. It’s a calming agent, it’s a calming hormone, and it also helps minimize what we call hyperactivity of your vascular structures. So for instance, hyperactivity might register as high blood pressure, elevated heart rate, stress of the vascular channel, so cardiovascular stress. When we have optimal progesterone levels, we will naturally have a relaxing of our cardiovascular structure and that becomes a cardiovascular protectant.

Learn More from Dr. Melissa in Masterclasses

So, progesterone is really important. And those two together – estrogen and progesterone – it’s important to keep the ratios fine-tuned. I talk a lot about this in an assortment of my masterclasses. I have hormone mastery masterclasses where we talk about how to specifically fine-tune the ratio – it’s a three-to-one ratio between estrogen and progesterone and why that’s really important, especially when we’re in perimenopause or going through menopause.

And I also talk a lot about hormone influences for men and women in my cardiovascular masterclass. So, I have a whole heart-health-focused masterclass where you can really learn more about not just these hormones, but there are also an assortment of hormones that are very much regulatory influences and certain hormones signaling and receptivity that will greatly influence the mechanisms of your cardiovascular health.

A Direct Link Between Hormone Imbalances and Heart Health

So, I want you just to know if you are watching right now, and you know for sure, because you’ve had labs and you’re also represented in hormonal imbalance symptoms, if you have hormone imbalance, there is a direct link to your cardiovascular health. And so, it’s really important that you take steps to balance out your estrogen and balance out, particularly, most of us have to level up our progesterone.

So, I hope this was helpful. Do you know the way the body works? We are symbiotic. The influences of hormones will affect an assortment of body systems and mechanisms within the body. And so, modulation and the mediation of hormones directly has, in some cases, a negative influence on your heart health. And when we’re balanced, it has a positive influence.

So, that’s my huge female health tip today, specifically helping you really, really balance and lower your risk factors for heart disease, because it is the number-one killer of women. And most of the time, we are not educated, nor are we studied in a lot of clinical research about heart health. But what we do know is there are great influences our estrogen and progesterone place on our heart health. So fine-tuning that is going to be absolutely critical for you achieving optimal cardiovascular health.

4 Cardiovascular Risk Factors Doctors Aren’t Talking About
 

Video Transcript:

Happy Heart Health Awareness Month! I am going to share with you today four very important cardiovascular risk factors to be aware of that your doctors are not detailing fully that can literally change your life and can prevent heart disease, heart episodes like heart attacks, stroke, and all of the other assortment of imbalances in your heart health.

1. Too Much Sugar

So, the first cardiovascular risk that nobody’s really zeroing in on is that your sugar intake from both a dietary perspective and or your body’s natural production like insulin, is one of the greatest risks or risk factors that leads to breakdown of your cardiovascular health. And you might ask, “Dr. Melissa, how is that possible? I thought salt was the thing we’re supposed to be aware of,” and actually sugar is the worst. Out of any other element that influences the heart health, sugar is a direct leading source of cardiovascular imbalances. And I would gauge to state that it’s one of the number-one factors in terms of individuals who might be experiencing pre-diabetic states or consuming your standard American diet that have insulin imbalances.

So, if you are looking to get control of your heart health, be preventive, or reverse some of the staging of heart disease and heart cardiovascular imbalances, really understanding your blood sugar levels and your daily hourly insulin levels is going to be critical.

You might see a lot of people now have these patches that they put on their arm and it connects up to their phone where they can literally track after I eat a meal, insulin either spikes or stays maintained. Everybody’s biochemistry is different and so it’s really important to be able to track your blood sugar as well as the insulin on a not just morning fasting basis like we usually see in lab tests, but throughout the day. And there are influences, and particularly number four in this video for you is going to highlight this further.

2. Magnesium Deficiency

So number two, the second cardiovascular risk is deficiencies in magnesium. Last year, I talked about magnesium, our Magnesium 7, and the connection to heart health, but it’s really, really important to know that over 95% of individuals here on earth are lacking in some degree of magnesium.

There are different types of magnesium. There are certain forms of magnesium that are better for your heart health. There are others that are more productive for minimizing fluid retention, which can be really helpful if folks have chronic vascular insufficiency or have assorted fluid retention related to heart failure.

But there’s also other magnesiums that are really good for your heart tissue. Magnesium, most importantly, when it comes to your overall cardiovascular health, when we have optimal, not just normal in the middle range, but optimized high level, in the range but optimized magnesium, we minimize the body’s accumulation of plaque, particularly bone matter in our cardiovascular system.

For anybody who’s had a family member that has suffered from arterial sclerosis, that’s a thickening or hardening of the arteries. The thickening and the hardening that narrows the walls of that artery, it’s bone matter, and so magnesium minimizes calcium from getting into your cardiovascular system. That is absolutely critical.

3. Not Exercising Every Day

Number three, as far as cardiovascular risks, are individuals who are not doing daily cardio. This is really important. Exercise is important. 30 minutes minimum of cardiovascular effect where you’re getting your heart rate, you’re getting a sweat on – brisk walking, swimming, even rebounding for 30 minutes is really great. But not doing that every day is a risk factor.

So, I have a lot of folks that are fitness enthusiasts, they’re in the gym, and individuals that may be only lifting weights and not doing cardio or they’re not doing the HIIT and the intensity, getting the blood pumping that might not qualify as cardio specifically.

4. Neglecting Stress Levels

Now number four, this is really important. The really, really key critical factor for minimizing both stress levels in your body, the cortisol hormone, as well as minimizing the spikes of insulin or imbalances in blood sugar, is getting control of the stress hormone. So, high blood pressure, elevated heart rate, high cholesterol, and even elevations in triglyceride levels, all are contributed to an increased cortisol level.

So, cortisol is our stress hormone that our adrenals produce. This is a fight-or-flight stress response mechanism. And cortisol is a natural, innate hormone that helps us either get our bodies ready to fight or flight, to run, and that activity naturally requires a spike of energy. So, insulin increases, which is bad for the heart, talked about that first, but it’s also going to trigger a central nervous system response, elevation in blood pressure, elevation in heart rate and cortisol is clogging and overwhelming to your liver, which leads to increases in triglycerides and cholesterol.

So, the traditional model is to combat cholesterol by giving you a statin drug. But what that doesn’t address is the source, which is stress hormone called cortisol. I do a lot of cortisol testing with my patients. We actually do saliva-based testing. You can get a four-panel snapshot throughout the day, gives us a really good idea of this ideal cycle, very much like our circadian cycle, but cortisol management and keeping cortisol calm and in the levels we need at certain times of the day can really turn around the state of your heart health.

So, those are four powerful risk factors that many people, especially your clinicians, are not discussing that I know will literally change the state of your heart health, will help prevent heart disease, and might save you or maybe a family or friend’s life. So, I’m excited to share this information with you today.


Magnesium deficiency is linked to stress, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, sore muscles, migraines, and many more debilitating health conditions.

If your body needs magnesium, you want the most beneficial kind your body can actually absorb. Organixx Magnesium 7 gives you seven (7) of the very best, most bioavailable types of elemental magnesium available.

Magnesium Supplement
Doctor-Recommended Supplements for Heart Health
 

Video Transcript:

I’m so excited to share with you today four of our favorite, best resources here at Organixx for improving your heart health.

1. Collagen

Number one is collagen. Our Clean Sourced Collagens are amazing for helping muscle and soft tissue repair. Our assortment, five different types of collagen, it’s very powerful. These collagen types are helpful at supporting the turnover of the cellular process of your heart health, as well as muscle health, and your vasculature. So, overall, collagen is a good repair agent for supporting the functionality of your heart and cardiovascular health.

2. Turmeric 3D

The second supplement that I love is our Turmeric 3D, or T3D. It’s very turmeric-forward, and turmeric is a powerful herb for supporting our heart health. One of the overwhelming benefits of turmeric is that it’s an anti-inflammatory. So, when we’re talking about heart health, and heart disease risks, and risk factors behind stroke and heart attack, and that kind of vascular inflammatory disorders, turmeric is very helpful at lowering overall systemic inflammation, and it also serves to function as a natural diuretic.

Now, quick warning on this, if you are taking any kind of blood-thinning medication like a warfarin, you want to be very cautious of taking also turmeric. So, turmeric is kind of the nature’s natural alternative to a warfarin or a blood thinner, and that’s the other powerful benefit that turmeric provides, is it does thin your blood and helps to move your blood.

So, folks that have been diagnosed with thicker blood or notate a little bit higher elevations of LDL being transported through the blood, that would be a very powerful resource.

3. Magnesium 7

Now, third is honestly one of my favorites, and it’s our combination, or multi-form magnesium, or Magnesium 7. So, magnesium, overall, is going to be one of the most powerful minerals for your heart health. And simply put, magnesium is like a cardiovascular bouncer. It helps to keep out calcium from all aspects of your vasculature.

So, it will help minimize the buildup of hard, kind of gunky bony plaque, which is simply from calcium that is not being articulated and remineralized in other areas, like our bone or our teeth. So, when we’re talking about magnesium in the function of supporting our heart health, calcium blocking is the core powerful function magnesium provides for your heart health.

Now, magnesium, again, this is all different forms, we’re giving you seven different forms of magnesium. Some forms of magnesium are going to be more functional and helpful at moving your bowels, and that is very powerful at helping lower cholesterol levels, keeping things moving. There’s also a lymphatic function where we get the lymphatic fluid moving, which helps minimize the arterial pressure. This is really complex, but basically, there’s this connectivity between our blood vessels and our lymphatic system. It’s how the blood gets rid of toxicity, and it also is the way that it moves the lymphatic system. And there’s this pressure, there’s this kind of interweaving of vessels where there’s a transport mechanism and there is a pressure. It’s pressurized. Well, magnesium helps to get things moving out and through your blood, your lymphatic system.

So, when we’re talking about, maybe you’ve got some congestive heart failure, or edema, or swelling of the ankles, or even maybe are dealing with gout, all of those things can influence the fluid levels and constrain your heart health. Magnesium is great for helping excess fluid that is in the interstitial space, the kind of open space in our vasculature and in around our body. It helps articulate it and move it out. That is very helpful for reducing the overwhelm the heart has in pushing the volume of blood and other fluids in our body.

4. 7M+ (soon to be renamed “7 Mushrooms”)

Now, our fourth, and just powerhouse, is a functional mushroom that you’re going to find in our 7M+ product. And the functional mushroom here is called chaga. Chaga is one of my favorite adaptogenic functional mushrooms. Adaptogenic, meaning it helps your body adapt to everyday stressors. So, if you are studying and doing a lot of reading and are doing mental work, it helps you adapt to that mental work. If you, later on in the day, are doing a lot of physical activity, it helps your body process and recover and repair after that physical activity.

Chaga also has some really powerful heart-healthy benefits, and I highlight this in another video here this month. I’d have you reference that, but specifically, chaga is great for lowering your elevations of LDL, and it’s an anti-inflammatory.

So, overall, these four supplements, our collagen, our Clean Sourced Collagens, T3D, our MAG7, and our 7M+ functional mushroom blend that’s chaga-forward. They’re great. So powerful for helping support your heart health.

And if you are looking at being proactive and reducing your heart health risk and helping reduce the inflammation levels in your body systemically, that is a powerful thing to do to reduce your risk of heart disease, strokes, and heart attack. So, I hope you check out these four items in our catalog here at Organixx. They are great for heart health.

3 Proven, Powerful Ways to Reduce Heart Issues in Men
 

Video Transcript:

Today, I want to talk to you about heart health for men, specifically any of the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or gentlemen seeking to support their heart health. I’m going to share with you three really powerful supplements to add to your daily regimen that have a ton of clinical research and are proven to be helpful in minimizing the inflammation of heart disease. They are great at supporting the heart tissue and will also target the reduction in the overall accumulation of calcium, which calcium is one of the leading reasons for heart disease and heart attack and arteriosclerosis. But calcium that is not blocked appropriately in the body can go rogue. And so I’m going to share with you a supplement we have here at Organixx that’s going to be extremely powerful for reducing that. So, make sure you stay with me through this whole video.

Address Systemic Inflammation: The Leading Cause of Heart Disease

So, number one, let’s talk about inflammation. Inflammation. Systemic inflammation is a leading source of the cause of heart disease. This ranges from high blood pressure and blood sugar, metabolic imbalances, and all the way through to arteriosclerosis and strokes and heart attack. So, targeting inflammation and the inflammatory markers, cytokines – these are certain cells that are inflammatory producing and trigger a whole bunch of other inflammation in the body – targeting that is going to be really critical in reducing your propensity or likelihood to develop heart disease, have a stroke, or have a widowmaker heart attack.

So, Magi-Complexx is my favorite go-to. It’s a three-herbal blend that has the most potent forms of anti-inflammatory herbals in them. The combination of turmeric and frankincense and myrrh – these are the gifts of the Magi, that’s why we call it Magi-Complexx. It is so wonderful for reducing inflammation in the body. Turmeric is amazing at not only reducing inflammation, it supports the lymphatic system. So, this helps support the detox process of not only the heart tissue, the overall body, and the glymphatics, that’s a lymphatic system of our brain.

The Magi-Complexx is something that you can use for pain. It can be used for inflammation of the joints. But also deeper, systemically, it can target inflammation in the cardiovascular system. And free radical damage tends to be this leading source of the body’s creation of cholesterol, and reducing inflammation targets those free radicals. So we can reduce free radical damage by reducing inflammation in the body, thereby limiting the amount of cholesterol your body’s having to produce to heal open wounds in the vascular channel.

Repair Damaged Heart Tissue with Coenzymes

Now, the second thing that I love to recommend is a supplement that is a more recent modern find. This was back in the 1970s, the Japanese discovered the amazing potency of ubiquinol. And now we have the mitoquinols, an even more potent form of a coenzyme our body naturally produces.

It’s been discovered that our heart and our gum tissue is primarily comprised of coenzyme Q10. And quinols and the mitoquinols, that category of enzymes, coenzymes, are known to directly target the turnover and the restoration of our heart cells and ultimately our gum cell, gum tissue.

So, if you may have had a heart attack or maybe have had a stint or CABG procedure or any type of heart-disease-related surgery, maybe from a heart attack or arterial blockage, and maybe the heart is also dealing with congestive heart failure, CoQ10 or a mitoquinol, a very potent form of CoQ10, is extremely powerful at adding this into your daily regimen. I use it with my patients. There’s massive amounts of research. Particularly in Japan, they use the quinols to reverse heart disease and recover and repair damaged heart tissue.

I promise you, I’ve seen it in my own practice. I have had gentlemen who’ve had near widowmakers and have been awaiting surgery. And we put them on massive doses of coenzyme Q10 or mitoquinol. And we actually see their heart tissue repair, where cardiovascular doctors have said, “There’s no way we’re going to see change in the heart damage and the heart tissue. It’s impossible for it to repair.” Within a year, sometimes as little as six to nine months, we see a reinvigoration and a change in that cellular tissue.

And the reality is, is that our cells are constantly evolving and changing. By adding a mitoquinol, which you can find in my supplement store, actually. This is a more potent form of coenzyme Q10, and you can only get it through licensed professionals. We have mitoquinol that you can use on a daily basis. And it’s as small as 10 milligrams or 20 milligrams, but it gives you a massive potency to heal the heart and also any periodontal disease or gingivitis. It’s great for gum tissue. And gum tissue is very… it mirrors the heart tissue. So, if you’re dealing with any type of gum dental issues, likelihood, we might be also seeing some heart imbalances or heart tissue imbalances. So, mitoquinols are great for heart and gum tissue.

Manage Your Body’s Calcium Production

Now the last and final, let’s talk about calcium production in the body. There is a very special mineral, a very important mineral that is needed in over 600 different enzymatic body reactions. This mineral is often going to be in a deficient state with all of us. We calculate about 85% to 90% of the population globally has a deficiency in magnesium.

And magnesium in the body is like a bouncer for the nightclub. So, if the nightclub is our heart or a vascular channel, magnesium functions to keep calcium out. Calcium’s like a firecracker inside the vascular channel. So it is bouncing, it’s keeping the magnesium out or calcium blocker. And it’ll help push the calcium to the bones instead of getting into the vascular channel. And ultimately, arteriosclerosis is a disease where our body is putting bone matter, calcium, into the vascular channel. And we see a hardening, an actual calcification, a “bony” vascular channel. That is something we need to avoid for improved… and for our longevity, we need to see better balanced vascular health that is deficient in calcium accumulation.

And the way to minimize calcium accumulation is to add Magnesium 7. This is our multi-blend magnesium. This is wonderful. Adding it as a powder into smoothies. You can even add it into a tea or a coffee in the morning. So, we have capsules you can break open that are really great to add into your daily regimen. But magnesium functions as a natural calcium blocker. And a lot of individuals, particularly men that might be on calcium-blockers or beta-blockers, calcium is a factor for enhancing the state of our blood pressure. It can also lead to conditions like congestive heart failure, arterial blockage, and can ultimately lead to the need for surgeries and additional medications and therapeutics. So, adding Magnesium 7 right now to your daily regimen is going to be something that will help support your overall vascular health.

So, I’m excited to share these three items with you. Because overall, this is a powerful way to enhance your heart health. And this is not just for men, but for women. But for men, we see a lot of heart attacks being a leading source of fatalities. And so we can avoid and lower inflammation, power up the heart cells, lower the exposure of the vascular channel to calcium, then we can create a more supple, flexible, dynamic vascular channel that helps support you through the aging process.


Magnesium deficiency is linked to stress, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, sore muscles, migraines, and many more debilitating health conditions.

If your body needs magnesium, you want the most beneficial kind your body can actually absorb. Organixx Magnesium 7 gives you seven (7) of the very best, most bioavailable types of elemental magnesium available.

Magnesium Supplement
The Most Critical Mineral for Your Heart
 

Video Transcript:

Today, I’m going to share with you the most critical mineral complex that you need to add to your life to optimize your heart health.

Correlation Between Magnesium Deficiency and Heart Health

One of the things that we see in clinical evaluation of mineral levels is that individuals across the globe are deficient in magnesium. And there’s a direct correlation between your magnesium levels and the state of your heart health. Particularly, magnesium shows itself in highest form in our heart tissue. And in fact, the left ventricle is where the majority of the heart’s work is performed, and that’s where we see high level and high concentrations of magnesium.

So if you’re looking to prevent heart disease, or even reverse heart disease, magnesium that you can find here in Magnesium 7, can be a very powerful, potent heart disease prevention and reversal supplement. This is something, magnesium does not get billed as a powerful heart health supplement. But what we know is that individuals, patients with low magnesium levels, have greater instances of heart disease.

And research shows us that when we supplement with magnesium, we can decrease our cholesterol and our saturated fat content. This is really important because a lot of times people think, “oh, cholesterol causes heart disease, and it can lead to thickening of our arteries and cholesterol turning into kind of an arterial clogging situation.” But it’s the low magnesium that decreases heart functionality.

Undercurrents of Heart Disease

So, if you’re looking at the kind of undercurrents of heart disease and lowering your risk, it is really critical that you boost up your magnesium levels. So consuming Magnesium 7 is a complex with an assortment of magnesium forms and types that will target maximizing your heart health. And when we look at individuals who take magnesium in clinical studies, they take optimal forms of magnesium, they have reduction in high blood pressure. We see a reduction in metabolic syndrome – that’s the kind of underlying current and underlying cause of insulin resistance and glucose intolerance that can cause excess weight gain and lead to heart attack and stroke risks. We also see that patients will show a decrease in LDL and an increase in HDL when they’re increasing their magnesium.

Magnesium also plays a role in the accumulation of calcifications in the vascular channel. Now that might sound like some crazy concept, but basically, if you are familiar with any family member who has had any type of arterial sclerosis – a thickening of the vascular walls – well, the arterial sclerosis, simply put, is bone matter – calcifications of the actual blood vessels. That calcification occurs, simply put, because of low magnesium. Magnesium is a calcium gatekeeper. And what magnesium does is it limits the amount of calcium that can get through and into our cells, and can build up along the lining of our vascular walls.

So what we see, clinically speaking, is that individuals, when we’re testing magnesium, we have found through an exorbitant amount of research that our current labs, number one, are not running magnesium. We’re not seeing it in our chem panels, you have to request this to be done. Our current normal range is even lower than what we need. Any level that’s six mgs or lower, six milligrams or lower, is going to show you in a magnesium deficiency.

Ways to Get Your Magnesium

So literally, a magnesium supplement can save your life. It can save you from heart disease, heart attack, angina, arterial sclerosis – some of the major leading causes of fatalities due to heart disease.

So this magnesium, I recommend taking your dose throughout the day. Take a dose in the morning, and take a dose right before bedtime, your evening time. And magnesium is something you can also get in food. So I’m going to share with you some of the top magnesium-dense foods.

A quarter cup of wheat bran is going to deliver the greatest quantity of natural magnesium – it comes in at about 89 milligrams of magnesium. Then an ounce of almonds is also beneficial, we see that in the 65-67 milligram range. Also one ounce of cashews. So almonds and cashews are highly dense in magnesium. A half a cup of spinach. If you add that daily or double it, you get a cup of spinach a day, you’re increasing your magnesium levels. And also lentils.

So magnesium, friends, is going to be one of your heart’s best friends in terms of helping support its health. And can be both preventative and a reversal of heart disease.

I’m so excited to share this information with you. Because here at Organixx, you can purchase Magnesium 7 down below. So click on the link that we’ve added. I’m excited for you to try it, add it to your life. Your heart will be happy as a result.


Magnesium deficiency is linked to stress, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, sore muscles, migraines, and many more debilitating health conditions.

If your body needs magnesium, you want the most beneficial kind your body can actually absorb. Organixx Magnesium 7 gives you seven (7) of the very best, most bioavailable types of elemental magnesium available.

Magnesium Supplement
How to Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease with this “Elixir of Life”
 

Video Transcript:

I’m so excited to share with you a naturally-producing antioxidant that is in your body currently, that you can tap into and invigorate to support your heart health. CoQ10, the elixir of life is an amazing, powerful antioxidant and mitochondrial enhancer that your body naturally produces. Now, one of the things that happens, by the age of 30, 35 we start to see our CoQ10 levels naturally start to decline. And with the use of a lot of medications – a lot of times our statin drugs, our blood pressure medicine, our blood sugar medication, and even our anti-anxiety pills for depression, these can also influence and decrease our CoQ10 levels.

So, if you’re over the age of 30 and maybe you’re taking one or more medications, investing in supplemental CoQ10 is going to greatly enhance your heart health.

CoQ10 & Heart Disease

Now, Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10, that is a compound, an enzyme, that was discovered by the Japanese in the 1970s, and they continue their research even to today. Remarkably, the Japanese use CoQ10 to combat and even reverse assortments of heart disease or heart health conditions. And we see that utilized here in the States very gently, so I want to share with you some other benefits of incorporating CoQ10 into your life, because this is one amazing powerhouse energizer and supportive to your overall wellness, and will support your heart health.

Heart disease, often when we’re testing individuals with their Coenzyme Q10 levels, they have subpar, sub-optimal levels of CoQ10. And we often see CoQ10, the particle, the enzyme existing in the cells of our heart and the cells of our gum tissue. For patients that maybe have heart disease or patients who have gum disease, it’s indicative that they have CoQ10 that has decreased a bit. It might be something for you to invest in, checking your CoQ10 levels. But this elixir of life is amazing. It provides our mitochondria, the heart of our cells, it provides this rejuvenation where it powers up the energy output of our cells. It actually is what we call a free radical scavenger. It minimizes oxidative stress on our bodies, but particularly our cells.

CoQ10 Supports Heart & Gum Tissue

When our cells are influenced by stress, environmental toxins, bad food choices, medications, and internal biochemistry imbalances, we find that oxidative stress shrinks and reduces the vitality of our cells. And the elixir of life, CoQ10, can revitalize our cells, supporting the mitochondria, the energy source, heart of our cells. That will improve fatigue, it will help support mental acuity. We will see enhances in performance, physical performance. And this is all highly documented, highly researched, where we see, in its relation to heart health, we notice that an increase in CoQ10 can actually support supple heart tissue.

And I can speak specifically to my clinical experience with CoQ10. I’ve put a ton of my patients who’ve either had heart damage, surgeries, they’ve had blockages, or even dysfunction between the left and right side of the heart, when I put them on very therapeutic doses of CoQ10, within three to six months, when we re-scan their heart, they have massive improvements in the actual tissue strength and the vitality of their heart tissue.

We see the same thing with a lot of my patients that have gingivitis or any type of gum disease, periodontal disease. CoQ10 can really help support the gum tissue.

CoQ10 Helps Reduce LDL Levels and Free Radical Damage

And this is something that’s also lesser-known about CoQ10, but when you consume CoQ10 and you really support and optimize your levels, it will actually help your body reduce the LDL levels, particularly because it’s reducing free radical damage. Free radicals and free radical damage to the oxidation of our cells is the number-one leading cause for our body to produce LDL. LDL is basically a Band-Aid that your liver calls up when there’s free radical damage inside the vessels, your heart vessels, your vascular channel.

It can be in a microvessel, it can be in our arteries, and that can cause the body to call up LDL as a Band-Aid and then HDL is the source that removes that Band-Aid. If you think about cholesterol in a different format, the LDL is simply a response to free radical damage and oxidative stress. The way to combat free radical damage and oxidative stress is to introduce CoQ10, more of it, into your diet and more of it into your body.

Ways to Enhance Your CoQ10

I’m going to share some ways for you to enhance your CoQ10. You can take supplemental CoQ10. That is very powerful as a resource. There are newer, more potent forms of CoQ10 on the market, and those are easily able to be found by a quick research.

But importantly, eating meat, fish, and nuts are three powerful resources where you can daily consume CoQ10, to help power up your CoQ10 levels. And another thing, if you are trying to manage or balance your blood pressure levels, particularly for those who have high levels, there have been extensive research studies that show CoQ10 supplementation, in a therapeutic dose, so high levels of CoQ10, can actually decrease the blood pressure levels.

Now, I do want to give a little warning here, because things have to come with a warning.

CoQ10 can cause blood thinning. If you’re taking Warfarin or another blood thinner, or maybe you’re consuming turmeric or ginger, you might want to space out that dosage. And definitely, if you are taking Warfarin, talk to your clinician before you start supplementing with CoQ10.

But if you want to make a drastic change in the state of your heart tissue and support your body and really power up your cells from a systemic focus, then adding a Coenzyme Q10 to your daily regimen would be something I recommend. Not just surrounding heart health, but overall supporting your cells. It’s one of the best anti-aging supportive supplements on the market. And again, eating meat and fish and nuts are also ways for you to increase your CoQ10 levels.
