Giving consumers science-based nutrition solutions for heart and artery health
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. – August 10, 2015 - Doctor’s Best is introducing two new heart health supplements – Artery Prime™ with MenaQ7® and Heart Prime™ with KD-PUR® EPA - to its dietary supplement line. These two new products join the brand’s comprehensive array of clinically proven supplements to support heart health.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key heart disease risk factors. About half of Americans (49%) have at least one of these three risk factors,” stated Gale Bensussen, CEO, Doctor’s Best. “It is our hope that with these new supplements, we can help enhance cardiovascular health with the benefit of science-based nutrition.”
Artery Prime™ with MenaQ7®
Available for sale this September, Doctor’s Best Artery Prime™ with MenaQ7®, a non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and vegan supplement, supports healthy cardiovascular arteries and promotes arterial flexibility. Its key ingredient, MenaQ7® - derived from soy-free fermentation of chickpeas – is a superior form of Vitamin K for optimum bioavailability and delivery to the body. Vitamin K is a family of fat-soluble vitamins with similar structures, but different metabolic properties. Vitamin K2 belongs to the group of Vitamin K compounds called “menaquinones” which demonstrate greater bioactivity when compared to Vitamin K1 (the ordinary form of supplemental Vitamin K). Emerging science shows that Vitamin K2 is absorbed more completely, remains in the body longer and delivers more benefits for blood vessels, bones and other soft tissues.*
Heart Prime™ with KD-PUR® EPA
Available for sale this October, Doctor’s Best Heart Prime™ with KD-PUR® EPA uses EPA from KD-PUR® EPA which provides high purity pharmaceutical grade EPA. It helps enhance cardiovascular health and may help maintain HDL cholesterol levels already in the normal range.
The two main ingredients in this softgel are KD -PUR® EPA, a long chain omega-3 fatty acid and CoQ10. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is one of the two main essential omega-3 fatty acids plentiful in fish, shellfish and algae. EPA is especially important for cell membrane fluidity, which in turn supports a great variety of important cell functions. Increased understanding of EPA has led to an increase in the number of recommendations globally to take omega-3s and EPA in particular, to support heart health. Coenzyme Q10 is known to support the heart through mitochondrial bioenergetics, the process of cellular energy transformation. Additionally, CoQ10 helps to reduce oxidative stress in heart and endothelial (blood vessel wall) cells. A meta-analysis noted Coenzyme Q10 supplementation as one useful and safe tool in the maintenance of an already healthy blood pressure, complementing the endothelial support and antioxidant advantages it provides.
Heart Prime™ with KD-PUR® EPA, a Non-GMO and Gluten Free supplement, is manufactured under strict quality control standards and is tested to be free of heavy metals, PCB’s, dioxins, and other unwanted contaminants.
