Our heart is an active muscle that beats on a moment-to-moment basis throughout our entire life.
By now, we’ve all heard about the important effects that meditation and living in a state of gratitude have on our heart.
Yet, to optimize its function, our heart also needs a number of raw materials to increase its strength, resilience and flexibility.
Heart Center Boost was created to offer all these important raw materials in one single scoop. Given that our heart is an integral part of our immune system, Heart Center Boost provides powerful antioxidants and coenzymes, along with immune-boosting, plant-based ingredients, to strengthen our immune system on a daily basis.
Here’s a brief spotlight on the four key ingredients that make Heart Center Boost a unique and effective support supplement for an open and healthy heart.
4 Key Ingredients in Heart Center Boost
L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate
It has a funny name, but this compound provides formidable support for blood flow and strength. L-arginine alpha ketoglutarate (AAKG) is made from the amino acid L-arginine and alpha-ketoglutarate, a substance formed in our body's energy-generating process.
L-arginine alpha ketoglutarate may help to support our body’s production of nitric oxide in our blood vessels, which results in vasodilation, or a “relaxing” of the arterial walls—allowing for greater blood flow.
Healthy blood flow is the hallmark of an optimally functioning heart and body, and a great aid to muscle strength, as it increases delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the working muscle.
Arabinogalactan is a plant-based, starch-like soluble fiber that often comes from larch trees. It may enhance natural killer cells and macrophages, which help to increase our body’s potential to defend against the common cold.
As a soluble fiber, it acts as a prebiotic in our intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria and increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids. A healthy microflora population is important for immune function. Short-chain fatty acids ensure the health of our intestinal walls and keep inflammation levels in check. This ingredient is excellent for our gut health.
Known as nature’s “first milk,” colostrum is the nutrient-rich fluid produced by female mammals immediately after giving birth, which is known for its immune-boosting properties and high levels of growth factors.
Bovine colostrum is loaded with lactoferrin and antibodies, which help to boost our immune response to both bacterial and viral infections. Its growth factors work in conjunction with IGF-1 to help in the functioning and repairing of the heart muscle, which may improve heart function. Colostrum is a powerful substance for immunity and the heart.
Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract is a true marvel from nature. Olive leaves are loaded with protective compounds called polyphenols, which allow olive trees to weather sun exposure and microbes, while thriving for hundreds of years.
These same powerful polyphenolic antioxidants have protective effects in the human body too. They help to fight off the action of free radicals, which cause cellular damage and aging. Additionally, their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties help to boost immune function and protect our heart. It’s no mistake that the olive tree is known as the tree of life.
