Cardiovascular disease is an underlying health condition that, for many individuals, doesn’t present itself until a stroke or heart attack is evident.
Understanding your risk factors – especially during a time of pandemic – is an essential step in taking care of your health for years to come.
Behavioral risk factors include unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco and harmful use of alcohol.
If you’ve found any of these categories challenging during quarantine, working with a Functional Medicine professional can help you monitor your risk by looking for signs like raised blood pressure, raised glucose, raised blood lipids, and factors involving weight and obesity.
While measuring immediate risk factors, we help our patients reduce their chances for heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension by adopting preventative behaviors and a heart healthy lifestyle. This includes personalized diet recommendations and, for some, dietary supplements.
Our Heart Health Bundle
Our Heart Health Bundle offers four formulas that are shown to support cardiovascular health, including CoQ10, Core Multivitamin, Omega Balance, and Magnesium. You don’t have to be a Functional Medicine patient to shop our professional-grade supplements; however, it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider prior to supplementing.
Inside this bundle, you’ll find:
This CoQ10 is formulated in an emulsified, liquid form for superior absorption. Includes natural vitamin E for enhanced bioavailability and stability.
CoQ10 is an antioxidant found naturally in almost every cell of your body. It helps produce energy, protects your cells from damage, and plays a role in metabolism. CoQ10 levels decline as we age and are lower for people with certain health conditions including heart disease.
More than a multivitamin, Aligned Modern Health’s Core Multivitamin is a cellular energy booster that supplies key mitochondrial nutrients along with a power trio of antioxidants (alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine and acetyl L-carnitine) to increase energy production and recharge primary cellular antioxidant pools of vitamin E, C and glutathione. Includes a blend of phytonutrients (green tea, broccoli seed extract and resveratrol) to protect mitochondria and renew cycle of energy production.
Highly-absorbed form of essential omega-3 fatty acids to benefit cardiovascular health, support brain function and cognition, and help maintain a healthy inflammatory response.
Formula designed with natural triglcycerides to be 70% more absorbable than retail fish oil. Ingredients are single-sourced, wild-caught anchovy from the Chilean coast. As the world’s least industrialized coastline, these waters provide the cleanest most sustainable source of fish in the world.
A “3-in-1” formula of magnesium that includes three unique forms of highly-absorbed magnesium to ensure maximum absorption.
Most magnesium supplements use one source, which can overwhelm a single pathway of absorption and limit uptake. This product is designed with three unique pathways of absorption that includes di-magnesium malate, magnesium cirate and magnesium glycinate. This combination provides superior utilization and gastrointestinal (GI) comfort. Other forms of magnesium may cause GI side effects such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, and/or constipation. The forms of magnesium used in this product are designed to preserve GI comfort.
