Collection: Supplements Cholesterol, Microcirculation and Cardio Vascular Wellness

Cholesterol belongs to the family of lipids or fats and is one of the components of the cell membrane, present in the blood and in all tissues. In physiological quantities it is essential for the construction of healthy cells, but when the levels are too high it is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases . Excess cholesterol can cause fatty deposits to form in blood vessels that narrow the lumen and lead to heart attack and stroke. The best known remedy for normalizing LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol levels is red yeast rice . It is a food that undergoes a fermentation process by a microorganism known as red yeast (Monascus Purpureus). Monacolin K, one of the metabolic residues of red yeast, mimics the chemical structure of lovastatin and inhibits the key enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis, HMG-CoA. This is useful for normalizing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Supplements like T-Norma Col take advantage of these characteristics of red yeast rice which make them great natural remedies for total cholesterol control .

Other rather common circulatory problems can involve the eyes and legs . For both cases, the most used natural remedies employ phytotherapeutic extracts of blueberry, horse chestnut, red vine and gotu kola. These phytotherapeutic extracts help improve blood circulation and microcirculation in the capillaries for the benefit of vision health (Blueberry Forte). They also reduce the feeling of heaviness in the legs , varicose veins, hemorrhoids and water retention (Gel Fresco Gambe).

Finally, a valuable contribution to general cardiovascular well-being is given by Omega 3 (fatty acids). A significant intake of Omega 3 helps to decrease triglyceridemia and reduces the degree of rigidity of cell membranes. Thus the Omega 3 thus perform a natural cardioprotective, protective vessel and neuroprotective action .
