Heart Healthy Products – Show Your Heart Some Love
It’s February, the month of love and snuggles and celebrating how much you love your heart! We all know with out our heart we would not be alive, so instead of indulging in tons of chocolate and bon-bons why not support your heart with some amazing supplements?! I’m going to highlight some of MRMs amazing heart healthy and friendly products to help you find some of the easiest ways to take care of the one who loves you the most- your blood pumpin’ heart!
Coenzyme Q-10, Ubidecarenone, and Ubiquinone- these are the many names this wonderful product can go by, but we’re just simply going to call it CoQ-10. CoQ-10 is essential in the mitochondria process of producing energy for each and ever cell. The liver, kidneys, and -you guessed it- heart, are known to have high concentrations of mitochondria making CoQ-10 critical in their day to day function. Our CoQ-10 is a Pre-Emulsified (or PEL) form of fermented CoQ-10, which means the absorption is much easier for the body, especially when compared to taking it in powder form. The fermentation process is all natural, as opposed to a synthetic form that can be commonly found. Your heart has a very high concentration of mitochondria and relies heavily on CoQ-10 for healthy functioning, and once CoQ-10 is in its reduced form in the blood it acts as a potent antioxidant… kind of a two-in-one for this product! Essential for your heart AND it’s an antioxidant?! Wowzah!
This fish oil is Extra Virgin Salmon Oil. It is extracted from the fish within hours of them swimming in the pristine waters of the Norwegian Fjords. FreshOMEGA contains a full spectrum of beneficial Omega Fatty Acids that include EPA, DHA, and DPA. Fatty acids are essential for the body to work properly, they provide an anti-inflammitory environment and have been shown to decrease risk of heart disease. So taking FreshOMEGA is basically a no-brainer- it’s even greater for your hair, skin, and nails! Silky smooth hair, strong nails and radiant skin all while taking care of your precious, precious heart.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Or ALA, is an extremely versatile antioxidant- it is both fat and water soluble, meaning it can interact with different systems throughout the body. ALA even has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants so they can take care of free radicals in the blood, organs, and muscles. If you didn’t know, you’re heart is a muscle… and you need to take care of it so it can take loving care of you! ALA can also be great for proper glucose metabolism… basically it helps transport glucose into cells to be used for energy which, in turn, helps to promote normal blood glucose levels (which is kind of a big deal).
Raw Red Beet Superfood Powder
Beets, or beet root more specifically, contains special antioxidants called betacyanins. These are unique because they have the ability to neutralize free radicals that can damage key cull structures- think DNA, cell membranes, and proteins. Red Beets also contain naturally occurring betaine and nitrates which have been found to support cardiovascular health and energy. Many people will actually use Red Beet Powder as a pre-workout drink to boost their energy and keep their heart nice and strong for training.
TreLEAFia is MRM’s all natural zero calorie sweetener. I thought I’d include this here because, well…February is the month focusing on heart health but it’s also focused on love and sweets! You can use this crazy awesome sweetener as a substitute for regular sugar! This is a blend of three plant-based sugar alternatives: Trehalose, Stevia, and Monkfruit. Now, you don’t want to use this as a 1-to-1 replacement, because TreLEAFia is actually 8X as sweet as regular sugar! Regular sugar is terrible for our bodies and brains, and TreLEAFia is an amazing substitute where very little goes a long way. You can use this to cook, bake, in your coffee- whatever! So go ahead and make all the sweets you want for your sweetie this Valentines Day- just remember to use our heart healthy TreLEAFia!
