WHAT DOES OUR HEART DO AND WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
Your heart is a fist sized muscular organ that continuously pumps blood around your body via the circulatory system.
The blood provides your body with the oxygen, nutrients and hormones it needs and removes waste products, like carbon dioxide.
Your heart muscle needs its own supply of blood because, like the rest of your body, it needs oxygen and other nutrients to stay healthy.
The heart is very, very important. If it stops functioning (such as during cardiac arrest), your body begins systematically shutting down.
Heart disease is New Zealand's single biggest killer, claiming more than 6000 lives every year - or one person every 90 minutes. Internationally cardiovascular disease (the term for all types of diseases that affect the heart or blood vessels, including coronary heart disease) is the leading global cause of death.
Not all heart problems come with clear warning signs. This is especially true if you are 60 or older, are overweight, or have diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. Here are some symptoms to watch out for:
- Chest pain, tightness, pressure or discomfort (angina)
- Nausea, indigestion, heartburn, or stomach pain
- Pain that starts in the chest and spreads
- Shortness of breath, dizziness or light-headedness
- Coldness and numbness, especially in your limbs
- Pain in the neck, jaw, throat, or upper abdomen
- You get exhausted easily
- Swollen legs, feet and ankles
- Irregular or abnormal heartbeat
- Symptoms of heart infections (such as endocarditis or myocarditis) include chest pain, chest congestion or coughing, fever, chills, or a skin rash.
In all these cases, seek medical attention immediately. If it’s sudden onset call emergency and get to a hospital right away. Don’t try to drive yourself.
HOW THE HEART HEALTH PACK MAY HELP
The Heart Health Pack is a combination of over-the-counter dietary supplements taken daily to improve your heart health and increase your sense of well-being.
The Heart Health Pack contains three products:
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is an important enzyme that our body produces naturally. CoQ10 helps the mitochondria – the powerhouse in our cells – convert compounds in food into energy, needed to power our heart and every other bodily function.
Low magnesium has been linked with cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure, arterial plaque build-up, calcification of soft tissues, cholesterol and hardening of the arteries. Magnesium helps widen and relax your blood vessels, which means your heart can pump blood more easily, thereby reducing blood pressure. It is also reported to support bone health, nerve conduction, muscle and brain function.
Herbal Ignite for Him helps boost testosterone levels, decrease stress, improve nerve function and genital blood flow, and increase interest in sex or libido. A 2018 study found that having low testosterone levels may be linked to heart problems and another found that testosterone supplementation may help some men avoid heart attacks
Herbal Ignite for Him, Coenzyme Q10 and Magnesium are 100% natural and manufactured to the highest standards with thorough testing and guarantees of no adulteration or undeclared ingredients.
