Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death worldwide by far. For this reason, looking after our vascular health is absolutely central to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The cardiovascular system is the whole blood circulatory network comprising our blood, heart, arteries, veins and capillaries. This vital system is responsible for supplying our cells with nutrients and oxygen, and removing waste products including carbon dioxide.

The cardiovascular system is one of the most sensitive biological systems in our bodies to poor diet, toxins and lack of exercise, which is why cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, by far, worldwide. If we make our lifestyle choices cardiovascular-friendly, we are likely to benefit in practically all other areas of our health and well-being.

Central to cardiovascular health is a healthy diet low in fast-release sugars, and plenty of regular exercise. And of course no smoking!

AlphaCurcumin Plus: Super-Bioavailable Curcumin

AlphaCurcumin® Plus is a highly bioavailable curcumin phytosome complex with added Bromelain, Quercetin and Bioperine for comprehensive cellular support.

img-curcumin-root.jpgTurmeric is ground from the root of the Curcuma longa L. plant (see picture below), a member of the ginger family which grows wild in the Himalayas and across South Asia. This yellow/orange spice plays a central role in ethnic cuisine in those areas, giving the traditional dishes of these regions their characteristic yellow colour. This spice has been a component of Ayurvedic medicinal systems of India, China, Tibet and the Middle East for over 2000 years.

Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid class found in turmeric. Only 2 to 5% of the turmeric contains curcumin which is the component, concentrated in the rhizome. It is the curcumin that is responsible for most of turmeric's health properties. Curcumin extracted from turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and overall it is regarded as one of nature's best protector nutrients and body cleansers, and is the subject of a great deal of scientific interest and research.

The big problem with the beneficial compounds in curcumin is that they have very poor oral absorption. As a consequence, impractically large amounts are needed to derive the full benefits of curcumin. A solution to this problem has been found by finely mixing the curcumin with lipids, as curcumin is fat-soluble, and this vastly increases absorption by basically having the lipids carry the curcumin into the body.

alphacurcumin-phytosome.jpgBy finely mixing the curcumin either with curcuminoid oils or with a phospholipid medium to produce curcumin liposomes, the curcumin is surrounded by fats. This increases the absorption substantially, but the resulting mixture is not ideally stable and requires a large ratio of oil molecules to curcumin molecules to make it effective.

A newly developed superior method to this lipid approach is to use a proprietary process to directly bond the curcumin molecules with phospholipid molecules in a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio. This produces a stable curcumin-phospholipid complex called a curcumin phytosome complex (curcumin-phosphatidylcholine complex), which is more effective and efficient than curcumin liposome complexes. The curcumin processed in this way has an absorption rate many times greater than that of ordinary curcumin complexes found in most food supplements, and this unleashes the full healing power of curcumin complex.

The Really Healthy Company's AlphaCurcumin® Plus brings 250mg of this highly bioavailable curcumin phytosome complex (Meriva-SF — with sunflower derived phospholipids) together with 75mg of Bromelain, 50mg of Quercetin and 5mg of Bioperine (black pepper extract) in each vegetarian capsule, further enhancing the curcumin's already magnified beneficial effects. The result is one of the most potent curcumin supplements on the market today.

AlphaCurcumin also contains no added binders, fillers or any other excipients — just the full power of undiluted, leading-edge, natural ingredients.

Ingredients: Cucumin phytosome complex (Meriva-SF®), Vegetable Cellulose (capsule), AlphaBlend, Bromelain and Quercetin.

Directions: Take 2 to 4 capsules a day, preferably at mealtimes, or as directed by your health practitioner.

AlphaGuard Plus: Superlative Antioxidant Complex

AlphaGuard® Plus antioxidant complex is superior to most other full-spectrum antioxidant food supplements on the market.

Burning calories is a natural process of oxidation that releases energy in our bodies. However, oxidation can be destructive when it is excessive and uncontrolled, which can happen with stress (physical and mental), poor diet, toxins and environmental pollutants, too much sun, radiation and illness. When this happens, our cells can become damaged by reactive molecules called free radicals and our energy and vitality deteriorates. Long-term, this can lead to premature ageing and degenerative conditions.

Whilst the body produces some of its own antioxidants, the rest must be obtained through the diet, primarily from fruits and vegetables (especially their skins and pips). However, we live in a world where oxidative stress on our bodies is increasing due to rising pollution and stress loads, whilst dietary levels of antioxidants are decreasing, due to poor diets and the fact that our food is often grown in nutrient-depleted soils. The result can be compromised health.

AlphaGuard® Plus is one of the very best all-in-one antioxidant supplements on the market today, combining many of the most effective antioxidant nutrients and complexes, including Vitamin C, Grape Seed Extract, Curcumin Extract, Quercetin, Bilberry Extract, Vitamin E, Alpha lipoic acid, Green tea extract, N-Acetyl cysteine, Zinc, Leutein, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthin and Selenium. The reason we put such a potent variety of antioxidants into our supplement is that antioxidants work synergistically in the body — their combined benefit far exceeding the benefit we would obtain from taking them separately. And not only that, many of them have their own unique and essential function, so they must all be present for optimum well-being.

This makes AlphaGuard® Plus the ideal food supplement for helping to prevent excessive oxidation in the body.

Directions: Take one or two capsules a day with a meal, or as advised by your healthcare practitioner.

Natto NKCP Nattokinase

Natto NKCP contains an enzyme extracted from a Japanese delicacy called natto — fermented soybeans renowned for over 2000 years for its nutrients.

The reason natto itself isn't more popular is fourfold: it has an unpleasant smell and taste; it contains high amounts of vitamin K2, which can interfere with medicines such as Warfarin; the nutrients (enzyme active components) can vary greatly between different natto brands; and it is difficult for Westerners to find.

The Japanese developers of natto NKCP have solved these problems by culturing the natto bacilli (good bacteria) that form during the fermentation process of natto and then extracting only the active enzymes — the nattokinase — before removing the Vitamin K2. The final product is presented in an easy-to-take odourless tablet, so that everyone can now enjoy the benefits of natto. And unlike competing nattokinase brands, the manufacturers of NattoTabs extract the nattokinase during the end of the fermentation cycle, making this brand the most effective and highest quality nattokinase supplement available. And what is more, NattoTabs natto kinase can be taken safely and effectively long-term. 

NKCP NattoTabs nattokinase is available in a handy 10 tablet travel pack and a larger 60 tablet pack. The tablets are small and easy to swallow, and for normal health maintenance, the recommended intake is 1 - 2 tablets (250mg in total) per day with water after the evening meal, or as directed by your health practitioner. 

Ingredients: Proprietary extract of Natto Bacilli Culture (125mg), Microcrystalline Cellulose (bulking agent), Resistaqnt Dextrin (bulking agent), Sucrose Esters of Fatty Acids (emulsifier), Silicone Dioxide (anticaking agent), Shellac (coating). Contains no Vitamin K2.


Please note that if you are on blood thinners, you should still consult your doctor before taking supplements such as NKCP.

PRL DHA Omega-3, Premier (Vegan)

Premier DHA by Premier Research Labs is a plant-source Omega-3 DHA fatty acid supplement derived from algal oil that supports brain, nerves, eyes and heart function. This is a healthy vegan alternative to fish oils.

Omega-3 fatty acids are defined as essential fats, which means that the body cannot make them from scratch, and so they must be supplied by the diet. The most important form of these Omega-3 fatty acids is DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), which is a long-chain type of Omega-3 fatty acid essential for the healthy functioning of the brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system and, in children, eye tissue development.

DHA, unfortunately, can only be adequately sourced from fish and shellfish, but our bodies can make it by converting the omega-3 Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) found in plant sources such as flaxseed oil and other cold-pressed vegetable oils, nuts (especially walnuts) and green leafy vegetables. However, our bodies are very inefficient at converting ALA into DHA (usually <5%), which is why vegetarians and vegans, or anyone who does not have adequate quantities of fish or shellfish in their diet, can struggle to maintain optimum levels of DHA. (Many also choose to limit their fish and shellfish intake due to the increasing toxicity of our seas, lakes and oceans.)

Premier DHA is a high quality, non-GMO Docosahexaenoic Acid sourced from algae, making it a vegan-friendly and clean DHA source — the healthy alternative to fish oils!

Directions: Adults or Children (12 years and over): Take 1-2 capsule daily, Children (age 3-12 years): Take 1 capsule daily.  Children (4-8 years): contents of capsule may be sprinkled in a small quantity of food or mixed in juice to avoid swallowing capsule.
