An estimated 80,700,000 American adults (one in three) have one or more types of cardiovascular disease.
Nearly 2,400 Americans die each day from cardiovascular disease (CVD), an average of one death every 37 seconds.
(NCHS. Compressed mortality file: underlying cause of death, 1979 to 2004; http://wonder.cdc.gov/mortSQL.html)
CVD claims about as many lives each year as cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, accidents and diabetes mellitus combined.
In every year since 1900, except 1918, CVD
accounted for more deaths than any other single cause or group of causes of death in the United States.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, if all forms of major CVD were eliminated, life expectancy would rise by almost seven years. If all forms of cancer were eliminated, the gain would be three years.
(U.S. Decennial Life Tables for 1989–91, Volume 1, No. 4. Eliminating Certain Causes of Death, 1989–91. NCHS, September 1999.)
Coronary Heart Disease, Acute Coronary Syndrome & Angina Pectoris Statistics
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the largest major killer of American males and females. (NCHS. Compressed mortality file: underlying cause of death, 1979 to 2004;wonder.cdc.gov/mortSQL.html)
About every 26 seconds, an American will suffer a coronary event, and about every minute someone will die from one.(AHA computation based on latest available mortality data.)
Coronary Heart Disease, Acute Coronary Syndrome & Angina Pectoris Statistics
About 38% of the people who experience a coronary attack in a given year will die from it.
(AHA computation based on latest available mortality data.)
Only 18% of coronary attacks are
preceded by long-standing angina.
On average, every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke.
(AHA computation based on latest data.)
On average, every three to four minutes someone dies of a stroke.
High blood pressure is the most important risk
factor for stroke.(Stroke. 1997;28:1840–1844.)
other Heart Conditions
Stroke is a leading cause of serious, long-term
disability in the United States.(SIPP; MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2001;50:120–125.)
Nearly one in three U.S. adults has HBP.
A higher percentage of men than women
have HBP until age 45. From ages 45–54, the
percentage of men and women is similar. After
that, a much higher percentage of women have HBP than men do.(Health, United States, 2006.)

Vitamin B6 fights a culprit in cardiovascular illness, namely homocysteine. Time and time for over 10 years scientists have shown that even mildly elevated levels of homocysteine in the bloodstream raise the risk of heart disease.
High homocysteine levels may be even more damaging than high cholesterol levels, but taking vitamin B6 protects your heart.
A clinical study in Poland found taking just 300 mg of B6 every day for two months (along with adequate amounts of vitamin B12, that is, 1000 micrograms weekly, and folic acid, 5 mg daily) cut homocysteine levels in half.
This B-vitamin combo also reduced levels of thrombin, the clotting agent that sets the stage for a heart attack or stroke.
Vitamin B12 can decrease homocysteine levels which reduces heart disease risk considerably.
The University of Maryland Medical Centre conducted studies of their own which showed high homocysteine can make you more open to strokes and heart attacks.
Folate (as folic acid)
Folate (a B Vitamin) lowers homocysteine, and high levels of this amino acid have long been linked to heart attacks and strokes.
In a 2006 study published in the scientific journal Circulation Research, investigators shed light on the mysterious connection between folate and heart disease. Diets low in folate increase homocysteine and which lowers HDL cholesterol-the so called 'good' cholesterol. This in turn increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Trimethylglycine (TMG)(Anhydrous Betaine)
Trimethylglycine is effective at reducing the risk of heart disease and studies also link it liver health.
The most overwhelming science in support of the use of trimethylglycine (also recognized as betaine) revolves around its ability to lower homocysteine levels 20-30% in those with hyperhomocysteinemia. Plus, it has also shown a small decrease (5.5-8%) in persons with normal homocysteine
Antioxidants contained in pomegranate juice may help reduce the formation of fatty deposits on artery walls. Antioxidants are compounds that limit cell damage.
Research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences indicates that scientists found that Pomegranate combats hardening of the arteries (atherogenesis) and related diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes.
"In this experimental study, we have established that polyphenols [antioxidant chemicals] and other natural compounds contained in the pomegranate juice may retard atherogenesis," said Claudio Napoli, a professor of medicine and clinical pathology at the University of Naples, Italy.
Noni has the highest source of naturally occurring potassium. The potassium in a banana pales in comparison.
Noni is high in trace minerals. It has strong antioxidant, anti-coagulation, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Noni alkalizes the body chemistry.
Potassium rich Dandelion helps promote healthy heart function.
The potassium works with sodium to regulate the body’s water balance and normalize heart rhythms. It may lower high blood pressure due to its diuretic action in ridding the body of excess fluid, thereby reducing the amount of fluid in the heart.
As a diuretic, parsley can help to reduce high blood pressure.
Capsicum is often found in combination with other herbs to stimulate their action and improve absorption. Research has verified that it restores the heart.
Capsicum is thought to help lower serum cholesterol levels.
This sugar cane extract safely lowers cholesterol levels.
A recent study in the American Heart Journal concluded that policosanol is a promising alternative to classic statins (drugs that lower cholesterol). It offers a better approach to heart health.
D-Ribose is a sugar derivative of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy of life. (ATP) is considered by biologists to be the energy currency of life. It is the high-energy molecule that stores the energy we need to do just about everything we do. It is present in the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm of every cell, and essentially all the physiological mechanisms that require energy for operation obtain it directly from the stored ATP.
ATP is considered a critical element in maintaining heart health since it helps fuel the regeneration of energy when you body can’t create it quickly enough.
L-Carnitine is integral to a healthy cardiovascular system because it transports the fatty acids to the inner mitochrondrial membrane where the fatty acids are burned as fuel. This energy, in turn, allows your body to support healthy immune function, supply more oxygen to the heart and improve overall well being.
Hawthorn is noted for its ability to regulate arterial blood pressure. It increases the strength of the heart muscle and works to increase coronary blood flow.
It aids in reducing the heart rate and lessens the heart’s work load.
Arginine is considered a semi-essential amino acid because even though the body normally makes enough of it, supplementation is sometimes needed.
Arginine changes into nitric oxide which causes blood vessel relaxation.
Taurine, often referred to as an amino acid, is not part of the human body’s structural proteins. Instead taurine remains free in the tissues and bloodstream.
Taurine acts a metabolic transmitter and is also known to have a detoxifying effect.
Taurine has been found helpful in the treatment of both hypertension and high cholesterol.
CoQ10 for heart health – the spark that fires up the heart.
Every muscle in the body, particularly the heart, the tissue that has the most demand for CoQ10, can’t function without this vitamin, which is vital to life itself.
Flavonoids, including quercetin, are believed to account for the therapeutic actions of the elderberry flowers and berries. Elderberry is used for antioxidant activity to improve heart health.
Astaxanthin, the nutrient that gives salmon its pink color, may also have heart health benefits.
A 2007 study from the International Journal of Vitamin and Nutrition Research showspromising results that supplementation with Astaxanthin can have a protective role in the prevention of heart and vascular disease.
