An oral chelation supplement that was developed by Dr. Donsbach in 1997, Cardio E-Z is a product that is used to help with cardiovascular and heart health. It contains several vitamins and antioxidants such as EDTA, CoQ10, etc., in order to help maintain a healthy heart.
There are several vitamin components that make up Cardio E-Z, and among them are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Calcium, Magnesium, Coenzyme Q10, and Gingko.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that commonly goes by the name of ascorbic acid. It is a water-soluble substance that helps with bodily functions. Being an antioxidant, vitamin C helps neutralize oxidative stress or free radical damage in the cells. In other words, vitamin C boosts the body’s antioxidant defense against diseases like heart disease.
Aside from this, vitamin C in Cardio E-Z can also help in the body’s process of healing wounds, as well as in the production of skin, tendons, blood vessels, etc.
A fat-soluble substance and likewise, an antioxidant, vitamin E is also able to help with heart disease. This is because cell damage by free radicals is the root cause of cardiovascular disease. Being so, vitamin E as an antioxidant can also combat free radical attacks, and thereby help with heart disease.
Vitamin E is also found in Cardio E-Z. There was a study conducted wherein 121,000 women were tested with vitamin E. Those who took vitamin E supplements had a 40% lower risk for coronary artery disease compared to those people who did not take the vitamin E supplements.
Niacin or Vitamin B3 is manufactured inside the body in small amounts to help with bodily functions such as metabolism, cell respiration, the secretion of stomach fluids, and the nervous system. However, there are some people who are deficient in niacin, which sometimes leads to dermatitis, diarrhea, and dementia.
A water-soluble substance, vitamin B6 is important to the body. It aids in the metabolism of protein, as well as in the functions of the nervous system and the immune system.
Calcium plays an important role, especially in the bones. It also helps with the body functions involving the muscles and the nerves.
Magnesium is also found in Cardio E-Z. Magnesium is used not only in over 300 chemical reactions in the body, but also in keeping the heart healthy. It also helps with the cardiovascular health by keeping the heart rhythm steady.
A very potent antioxidant also known as ubiquinone, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is found naturally in the body. It aids in cardiovascular health, such as with congestive heart failure.
Gingko is one of the oldest herbs used in traditional medicine and is recognized for its health benefit on the circulatory system. Not only can it help with preventing clumping in the arteries, but also with the brain and the blood oxygen levels.
