The Diabetes / Heart Connection: Are you at risk?
According to the American Diabetes Association, “The risk of cardiovascular disease among people with diabetes is dramatic. More than 65 percent of deaths in diabetes patients are attributed to heart and vascular disease.”
If you have diabetes, Res-Q Multi is a must for heart protection!
When it comes to doing something really important for your body, there is no better place to start than with your heart. Res-Q Multi is one of the most powerful multivitamin formulas on the market. While it contains all of the essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to increase your energy and improve your overall health, it also contains heart-healthy ingredients that are so important to people who have diabetes.
Nutrients for a strong heart
Studies have shown that magnesium, CoQ10, Hawthorne Berry and Carnitine which are added to Res-Q Multi help energize and protect the heart muscle to promote healthy blood pressure and heart rhythms.
Are homocysteine levels even more dangerous than cholesterol?
Homocysteine, a by–product created in the digestion of protein, is making health headlines. High levels of this toxic amino acid, have been linked to many people with cardiovascular disease. In one reported study, researchers found a direct measurable relationship between blood homocysteine levels and the severity of atherosclerosis: for every 10% elevation of homocysteine, there was nearly the same rise in the risk of developing severe coronary artery disease. Elevated homocysteine levels can contribute to heart disease by damaging the cells lining the inside of the coronary arteries making it easier for cholesterol to deposit and by contributing to arterial blood clotting (thrombosis). In addition to heart attacks, elevated homocysteine levels are also the culprit in 40% of all stroke victims, according to a study in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Many researchers believe that by keeping homocysteine levels in a normal range, we can prevent cholesterol from clogging the arteries. Res-Q Multi contains the ingredients B6, B12, folic acid and garlic that can help combat this dangerous molecule.
Vitamin D: Getting more may help lower your resistance to insulin?
Studies have linked vitamin D deficiency to an increase in insulin resistance, a problem for many type II diabetes. Res-Q Multi contains vitamin D for its many benefits including a strong immune system and lowering insulin resistance.
