Why it works:
Cardio Edge by Douglas Labs contains Sytrinol, which provides a patented and well-researched combination of flavonoids derived from the peel of tangerines and tocotrienols derived palm. Within the peel of certain fruits, compounds belonging to a class of flavonoids called polymethoxylated flavones can be found. Sytrinol contains tocotrienols derived from palm. Tocotrienols, a group of compounds belonging to the vitamin E family, have also been studied over the years for their ability to act as antioxidants and to help support cardiovascular health.
Plant sterols are naturally occurring plant compounds that have structures similar to, yet slightly different from cholesterol. Typical plant sterols are compounds such as β-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol and can be found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, grains and certain types of oils. Research has shown that these compounds compete with the absorption of dietary cholesterol as well as inhibit the re-absorption of endogenous cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract.
Recent science has been focusing on the cardio protective aspects of pomegranate. These brightly colored fruits contains numerous compounds known for their antioxidant capabilities, including anthocyanidins, catechins, tannis, and gallic and ellagic acids. Recently, research in . humans has confirmed a beneficial effect of consuming pomegranate juice on parameters such as LDL oxidation, blood pressure, and blood vessel health.
The combination of Sytrinol, plant sterols, and pomegranate extract present in Cardio-Edge results in a formula that embodies the most recent science to help maintain cardiovascular health and support already normal cholesterol levels.
