Anti Aging for Metabolic Syndrome & Heart Health
What is Metabolic Cardiology?
Metabolic cardiology as a therapeutic strategy utilizing nutritional biochemical interventions that preserve and promote the cellular energy adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production which supports heart health and cellular energy. The heart requires a constant supply of ATP to maintain regular rhythm and pressure.
D-Ribose, L-Carnitine, CoQ10, D-Ribose, Magnesium are essential nutrients to heart health.
D-Ribose is a naturally occurring sugar that has been shown to support the production and recycling of ATP which helps to increase energy formation in stressed tissues. Some studies also suggest that ribose may nutritionally support heart function.
DMG is a metabolic enhancer that helps the body overcome various forms of stress such as aging, poor oxygen availability, free radical damage and supports the immune system. As a methyl donor it contributes methyl groups to keep ATP levels high.
CoQ10 is a free radical scavenger and a naturally occurring cofactor in cellular energy and play a vital role to the production of ATP. CoQ10 levels decline after age 35.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid Carnitine. It supports heart function by transporting fatty acids from the blood through to the mitochondrial membranes and into heart cells so the fatty acids can be converted into ATP.
Beyond and Above Cholesterol
Family history is at most 50% of your risk of chronic disease. The other 50% is lifestyle and environment. A coronary calcium score (Cardioscan) of zero is not reassuring? How about the non-calcified arterial plaque which is more likely to break off and cause a heart attack or stroke than calcified plaque?
Medications that increase the Cardio Risk:
- nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- birth control pills
- atypical antipsychotics
- systemic corticosteroids
Risk factors for increased blood pressure: High sodium diet, obesity, alcohol consumption, coffee, hormone imbalance, inflammation, lack of physical activity, overweight
