When given the choice, you probably don’t want to settle for putting off heart disease and dementia. You want to avoid it altogether, right?
Yet even the high-end formulas for brain health and expensive formulas for heart health do little more than stall “the inevitable.” So that in time, your memories start fading, your blood pressure creeps up, and you surrender to living with more limitations.
That’s because most formulas miss the critical link medical researchers proved years ago:
Heart disease and dementia go hand in hand. Your heart and brain may be separate organs, but if
As was demonstrated in a landmark study published in Dementia and Geriatric Cognitive Disorder. The study involved 9,844 middle-aged people between the ages of 40-45. Those with borderline high cholesterol raised their dementia risk by 50%. And those with high cholesterol increased their Alzheimer’s risk by a startling 57%.
The last thing we need are higher risks. Especially when we spend more money on advanced heart surgeries and high-tech medications now than ever before, yet:
Although the numbers keep rising, you don’t have to become one of its victims. All you have to do is support both your brain and heart’s existing relationship. So that as one strengthens, it helps strengthen the other – just as nature designed.
By supporting the existing brain-heart link, you can enjoy:
• Sharper focus and better concentration
• Lower risk of blood clots
• Greater relief from depression symptoms
• Improved memory and recall
• Less shortness of breath
• Increased mental clarity and alertness
• Better overall circulation – down to your fingertips and toes
• Healthier blood pressure and cholesterol levels
• Calmer feeling as stress and anxiety decrease
If this sounds good to you, then let’s get started with…
Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra practiced cardiology for over 35 years. But no matter how procedures advanced, he felt they didn’t really help his patients heal.
Because after surgery restored blood flow and oxygen, patients still took weeks or months before improving. And some returned with more heart problems just two years later.
Just as concerning, half of the people with heart disease showed no symptoms. Their first – and only – symptom was dying from a heart attack!
Dr. Sinatra found all of this unacceptable. He sought answers by returning to the basics. He studied what makes heart cells work.
His research led him to a massive discovery:
Inside each cell are tiny factories driving the cell’s many functions. As in any other factory, cells run on energy. Without enough energy, the cell can’t do its job properly.
It’s like trying to drive a car with a dying battery: Your headlights dim, or its functions become limited. Like not being able to run the heater and radio at the same time.
Putting more gas in the tank won’t make the car run better. You have to recharge the battery first.
Likewise, no medication, surgery, or certain supplements can get your heart working at top shape again until your cells generate enough energy first.
This cellular energy is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
ATP is the energy source that drives all of the functions inside your cells. Functions necessary for maintaining life, such as: repairing damaged cells, utilizing oxygen and nutrients, and removing cellular waste materials.
Although medical school teaches oxygen is the key to maintaining proper heart function, it’s not the answer. Because without enough ATP, heart cells don’t have the energy to drive the many processes that use oxygen.
What’s more, as energy fades, your heart can’t pump as well, and damaged blood vessels don’t repair like they should. Then your heart disease risks increases because the damaged blood vessels can lead to:
• Blood vessel hardening, leading to arteriosclerosis
• Plaque buildup on artery walls, leading to atherosclerosis
• And blood platelet stickiness, increasing your risk of blood clots that cause a heart attack or stroke.
As you can see…
It’s important to understand ATP isn’t energy. ATP is a molecule that creates energy. And your quality of life depends on how much energy your cells create.
When we’re healthy and young, ATP recycles itself continuously to provide cells a nonstop stream of energy. But from our 40s onward, this recycling process starts slowing down.
Before long, we use up more energy than we can create. Without enough energy, cells struggle to perform.
As you might have guessed, you need ATP for…
As in a healthy heart, a healthy brain starts with ATP – and plenty of it. Because your brain’s densely packed with about 100 billion neurons (brain cells). These neurons branch out, connecting to each other at over 100 trillion points.
All day long, lightning-fast signals shoot throughout this network, telling your body what to do. From how you breathe to how you move, feel, and think.
As you can imagine, maintaining and repairing 100 billion neurons require a lot of energy.
That’s why when your brain cells remain fully charged, you can protect your memory, think fast on your feet, stay focused longer, and continue learning new things easily.
That’s not the only reason you want a healthy brain. Because there’s…
There’s a small section at the base of your brain called the medulla oblongata. The neurons in this section determine how your heart works by firing off signals to:
• Control your breathing
• Control your heart rate
• Control blood vessel constriction to manage blood pressure
Basically, it controls normal heart function. But as important as the medulla oblongata is for heart health, it’s surprisingly overlooked in all other heart support formulas. But as you can see from what this section controls, it’s easy to see why the better your brain works, the better your heart works.
Your brain relies on a healthy heart to supply plenty of life-nourishing blood. Through your blood, neurons receive vital oxygen and nutrients as food to fuel its constant activity.
While ATP helps brain cells utilize this fuel. Your blood vessels deliver the fuel.
Keeping this delivery system flowing at full speed is critical to maintaining your brain health. In fact, every time your heart beats, your ravenous brain takes up to 25% of the blood flow. When you’re thinking extra hard, your brain can take up to 50%.
Maintaining a healthy blood flow to your brain…
When your heart can’t deliver enough blood to the brain, your brain becomes starved of critical oxygen and nutrients. As a result,
…Neurons weaken and die,
…Brain cells succumb to free radical damage, inflammation, and aging,
…And communication between cells slow down.
As neurons die, the brain shrinks. That’s when you notice frustrating and sometimes embarrassing changes.
Such as running into an acquaintance and forgetting their name…having words stuck on the tip of your tongue…or confusing basic details like remembering a birthday present, but forgetting who gave it to you.
Here’s something even more frightening:
As brain cells continue dying off, your risk of neuro-degenerative diseases skyrockets. This includes Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease.
When damage spreads to the control center in your medulla, it negatively impacts your breathing, heart rate, and blood vessel dilation.
This is how heart disease and dementia go hand in hand.
However, your heart and brain health is linked by more than a need for plenty of ATP and blood flow. They’re also both under constant attack by…
As scientists study the link between cardiovascular disease and dementia, they found both diseases share the same three threats that increase your risk of suffering from them, and speed up their progression:
Although our immune system designed inflammation to protect us, the inflammatory response can go haywire when it’s triggered too often. When this happens, the inflammatory response starts its attacks but forgets how to shut off after the threat’s gone.
That’s when the special army of immune cells sent out to attack threats end up attacking your healthy cells too. Where the attacks concentrate is where disease can develop.
For instance, when the army attacks your blood vessels, it can lead to atherosclerosis. When they attack your brain, it can lead to Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.
Oxidative stress occurs when your body can’t keep up with the damage caused by free radicals.
As you may know, free radicals are molecules missing an electron. Electrons usually come in pairs, so free radicals try stabilizing themselves by stealing electrons from other cells. It’s a brutal theft.
To steal electrons, free radicals rip through a neighboring cell’s vital components, causing extensive damage. This leaves behind a mutilated, unstable cell that’s now missing an electron. The newly unstable cell becomes a free radical, bullying other cells for electrons. And the destructive cycle continues…
It’s vital we control inflammation and oxidative stress because as both threats continue damaging cells, ATP levels spiral down. Then life-sustaining cell activity grinds down to a struggling crawl.
This is how inflammation and oxidative stress speeds up your aging process and increases your risk of disease. And it fast-tracks how diseases like cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s progress within you.
Making it worse, the first two threats alone can also increase the chances you’ll fall prey to the third culprit: an oxygen shortage (hypoxia).
That’s because inflammation and oxidative stress can choke off the oxygen supply to your heart and brain cells in two ways:
1. They damage blood vessels, reducing the oxygen-rich blood flow
2. They beat up cells so badly, cells can’t utilize what little oxygen they receive
If you’re middle-aged and “feeling fine,” don’t be fooled…
Alzheimer’s isn’t an “old age” disease anymore. Over 73,000 brain scans on patients spanning 90 countries show neurodegenerative diseases can start developing in your brain 30 years before you’re diagnosed.
This means, Alzheimer’s can quietly start rusting out your brain when you’re in your mid 30s. By the time you show symptoms in your 60s, extensive damage already occurred.
Inflammation, oxidative stress, and hypoxia attack at such an alarming rate, the latest statistics show Alzheimer’s affects 1 in 8 people 65 and older. And it victimizes half of our population over 85.
Sadly, our hearts aren’t any safer.Cardiovascular disease is now the leading cause of death in the U.S. Every 33 seconds, someone dies from cardiovascular disease.
And every year, cardiovascular disease claims twice as many lives as AIDS plus all cancers combined.
The scary truth is, these frightening statistics will only worsen. Partly because we’re living longer, and partly because inflammation and oxidative stress triggers increase each year.
So how can you restore and maintain a youthful heart and brain? Click the next section to find out…
Search for any brain or heart formula online and you’ll see they work by improving one or two functions. Maybe it’s increasing oxygen, increasing blood flow, or reducing oxidative stress.
While all of these strategies are correct, they’re not enough. Because they all still treat your brain and heart as separate organs running independently of each other.
But as you know, if you don’t strengthen both completely, one will always sabotage the other.
On top of that, you must also battle the 3 culprits pushing you quickly down the road towards heart disease and dementia.
That’s why Heart + Brain Power uses a 3-pronged strategy to help you restore and maintain lasting brain and heart health:
1. Maximize ATP production – To help heart and brain cells function at full power.
2. Optimize blood flow – To maximize the oxygen and nutrients cells receive, so they can continue protecting, repairing, and regenerating with vigilance.
3. Rejuvenate all major body systems – To strengthen your immune system and improve your body’s ability to prevent and repair inflammation and oxidative stress damage.
Using our car analogy, you could say our formula makes sure you have a full tank of gas, a fully charged battery, and reinforces your car frame to keep you safe as you fly down the freeway at warp speed.
To see how we do this, let’s start with…
Since ATP is formed by a chemical reaction, we can’t simply take an ATP supplement. But we can increase nutrients cells need to create the chemical reaction.
One of the most powerful nutrients for this job is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). You may have heard of CoQ10. It’s naturally found in every cell to help produce ATP and protect cells from free radicals.
But if you’re like many people, you may have used CoQ10 before and didn’t notice much improvement. That’s because the CoQ10 found in most supplements is in a form called ubiquinone.
Unfortunately, this form isn’t very bioavailable. Much of it flushes out of your system before it reaches your cells. That’s why we use a form that…
Your body produces two forms of CoQ10: ubiquinone (CoQ) and its reduced form, ubiquinol (CoQH2).
Both forms are important in ATP production. However, your body converts most CoQ10 into ubiquinol before it can produce cell energy.
Just as important, ubiquinol is considered one of the most potent fat-soluble antioxidants known. This is critical because when cells produce ATP, the process creates a slew of dangerous free radicals too.
Ubiquinol’s powerful antioxidant properties neutralize these free radicals before they can harm your cells. This makes ubiquinol one of the safest ways to create more ATP.
For even more protection and higher energy production, the ubiquinol in Heart + Brain Power is 8 times more bioavailable than standard CoQ10. This means, the 50 mg of ubiquinol in your formula equals about 400 mg of common CoQ10.
The ubiquinol in your formula comes from the world’s leader in CoQ10 research. They’re also the world’s only producer of a true ubiquinol nutrient.
Other ubiquinol supplements are synthetically made. Ours is reduced from yeast-fermented CoQ10. It’s the only kind that avoids impurities commonly found in other CoQ10. Plus it’s made here in the U.S. for guaranteed safety.
This purity is especially important because our ubiquinol…
The blood-brain barrier are cells that only reside in the blood vessels going from the heart to the brain. These special cells form closely together, preventing many toxins and other threats from entering our delicate brains.
While this barrier provides necessary protection, it also prevents most antioxidants and other nutrients from reaching our brain cells.
Thankfully, ubiquinol can cross this tight barrier without trouble.
Ubiquinol bathes neurons in protective antioxidants, and delivers this protection down to the very hub of cell activity – the mitochondria where all ATP is made.
Cells soak up ubiquinol so completely, even severely damaged cells can absorb it when it can’t absorb other nutrients. As was shown in a study involving the most critically ill heart patients known: those in stage IV congestive heart failure.
At first, scientists fed these patients standard CoQ10 daily. But none showed any improvement. Scientists then switched the patients to a daily dose of ubiquinol. Within three months, their hearts strengthened so much, they increased blood pumping action by 77%.
What’s more, the patients increased plasma CoQ10 levels by as much as 306%.
But the best number of all was the extra time patients gained with loved ones.
Before the trial, none of the patients expected to live past 6 months. After the trial, every patient’s heart function improved so much, they dropped from a stage IV heart failure to an average of stage II.
As was demonstrated in a study of 53 generally healthy men. The men took ubiquinol daily for 2 weeks. On average, their LDL (“bad”) cholesterol dropped 12.7%.
Simply taking ubiquinol for 2 weeks helped turn around their dangerous trend towards heart disease.
For a more impressive demonstration of how completely ubiquinol helps re-energize, protect and repair down to the very core of your cells, this incredible study showed
Researchers wondered if ubiquinol’s higher bioavailability really offered significant benefits compared with CoQ10. So they divided old-aged mice into 3 groups. One group didn’t receive any supplements. The second group received standard CoQ10. And the third group received ubiquinol. The researchers expected to see a difference, but were surprised by the results.
As expected, the group that didn’t receive any CoQ10 soon died from old age.
The group on standard CoQ10 stayed alive. Although they still looked like old mice with their shabby, thinning coats and slower movements, they still had some spunk left in them.
Compared to the CoQ10 mice, the ubiquinol mice ran around their cages with high energy, their coats were shiny and full, they maintained a healthy weight, and their minds were extremely alert and responsive.
Overall, mice on ubiquinol aged 40% slower than those on standard CoQ10.
Even more impressive, ubiquinol slowed their aging by 51% compared to mice who didn’t take any additional CoQ10.
Talk about finding the fountain of youth!
And because ubiquinol works on the cellular level, the youthful feelings and appearance is more than skin deep.
It gets your cells functioning so efficiently, it’s as if you turned back the hands of time.
If turning back the clock isn’t your goal, you’ll probably still want to supplement with ubiquinol. Partly because you can’t get enough CoQ10 from foods. And because as you age, your body slows down its ability to convert CoQ10 into energy-producing ubiquinol.
This may explain why people with cardiovascular, neurological, liver, and diabetes-related conditions all have low CoQ10 levels.
To help you prevent such a fate, Heart + Brain Power contains 50 mg of ubiquinol, which equals about 400 mg of CoQ10.
Similar to ubiquinol, your Heart + Brain Power formula contains another nutrient that…
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) is an amino acid produced naturally in our body. Much like ubiquinol, ALCAR provides strong antioxidant protection. And it helps increase cell energy production.
And like ubiquinol, ALCAR crosses the difficult blood brain barrier, delivering protection throughout the cells and down to its mitochondria.
That’s not all. ALCAR does something few antioxidants can: It promotes glutathione (pronounced glue-ta-thigh-own) production.
Glutathione is often called the “master antioxidant” because it detoxifies your body and strengthens your immune system.
As you may recall, inflammation and oxidative stress are two of the culprits fast-tracking heart disease and dementia.
The stronger your immune system, the better able your body controls inflammation. And fewer toxins mean fewer inflammatory triggers.
ALCAR’s antioxidant properties also help preserve cell membranes. The healthier this membrane, the better it protects all of the cell’s many components, such as the mitochondria where ATP is generated.
To test ALCAR’s antioxidant protection, scientists fed old-aged rats ALCAR for one month. Before the supplements, these old rats moved slowly and very little. After taking ALCAR, the rats ran around their cages, moving as actively and as nimbly as young rats. ALCAR worked so well, it restored the rats’ decaying mitochondria.
Heart + Brain Power contains a hefty 100 mg dose of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR). This may seem like a lot of antioxidant protection, but it’s not when you consider…
All of this increased energy production may keep us moving, feeling, and looking younger – but it comes at a small price.
Earlier, we mentioned when our cells create energy, the process also creates dangerous free radicals as a byproduct. Although ubiquinol and acetyl-L-carnitine provide intense antioxidant protection, they may not be enough to keep up with your total free radical load. Especially when free radicals are constantly produced from the foods we eat, stress, household products, and environment.
That’s why we added extra free radical protection to your formula that…
Cells – especially the easily damaged brain cells – can’t get enough antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection.
So we added alpha lipoic acid (lipoic acid) because it amplifies your cells’ ability to fight off threats and repair damage. Lipoic acid is shown to:
• Preserve vitamins C and E, and natural CoQ10
• Raise master antioxidant glutathione to optimal levels
• Cross the blood brain barrier to protect your brain as vigilantly as it does your heart
• Be fat and water soluble. This is important because its protective power doesn’t just reach all of your cells, it can reach all of the many components within your cells too.
It gets better. When lipoic acid is mixed with the acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) in your formula, it magnifies their individual strengths…
Nourishing aging cells with lipoic acid and acetyl-L-carnitine works like a magical elixir that rebuilds cells from the inside out. ALCAR spurs mitochondria to work at peak productivity and lipoic acid fights off free radicals with whirlwind efficiency.
One of the most cited studies supporting this beneficial marriage was conducted at UC Berkeley on old-aged rats. The study was headed by the international award-winning Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology. He concluded when adding lipoic acid with ALCAR:
“We significantly reversed the decline in overall activity…This is equivalent to making a 75 to 80-year old person act middle-aged.”
Yes, you read that right – the “old” rats seemingly erased nearly 30 years of aging!
Since oxidative stress is linked to nearly every disease, you can bet this added protection helps more than your brain and heart resist premature aging and disease.
There’s no doubt increasing cell energy is the first step to restoring brain and heart health. But when cells function at full speed again, they need more fuel to keep up all of their activity. Anyone who ever fed a hungry teenager knows this well.
This leads us to the second way Heart + Brain Power helps you enjoy a youthful brain and heart…
As you likely know, a healthy cardiovascular system involves more than a strong heart that pumps plenty of blood. It also involves healthy blood vessels to keep the blood surging along without trouble.
The key to blood vessel health centers around maintaining…
Blood vessels are lined with an ultra thin layer of cells called endothelial (pronounced: en-doe-thee-lee-al). These cells lay side by side to form the endothelium, a fragile barrier between your blood vessel walls and your blood.
When healthy, the endothelium has a slippery smooth surface so blood flows through your vessels like water shooting down a slide.
Your endothelium keeps blood flowing through smoothly by controlling:
• Plaque buildup (atherosclerosis
• Blood clotting
• New capillary formation (angiogenesis)
• Blood pressure
• Filtering germs and toxins
• Producing nitric oxide
In short, your endothelium controls just about everything necessary for healthy blood flow.
Unfortunately, the super thin endothelium is easily damaged by oxidative stress and inflammation. Because endothelium controls so many vital functions, endothelial cell damage can soon lead to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and other symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
As medical experts learn more about endothelium, they’re discovering cholesterol isn’t the cause of heart attacks or strokes. It’s our endothelium:
1. Oxidative stress inside blood vessels trigger the inflammatory response
2. This response damages the endothelium, turning the once-smooth surface into a surface that’s rough like Velcro
3. As fats and cholesterol flow through, they stick on the roughened surface like lint to Velcro
4. Artery walls thicken from the fat buildup, causing atherosclerosis
5. This triggers more inflammation, which eventually harden arteries and leads to arteriosclerosis
6. The excessive inflammation also cause some of the plaque buildup to burst
7. This releases particles that create more oxidative stress, which continues the cycle
8. Meanwhile, the inflammatory response tries to heal the rupture by forming blood clots that can lead to a heart attack or stroke
Of course, it’s always recommended you keep cholesterol levels healthy. But as you can see above, this blood vessel-decaying cycle wouldn’t have started if the endothelial cells remained strong and smooth.
To fortify your endothelium and keep blood flowing smoothly throughout your brain and body, Heart + Brain Power includes an extract from a tree so concentrated with antioxidants, it survived the Hiroshima nuclear bomb – unscathed!
After the nuclear bomb crushed Hiroshima, every building laid flat like a house of cards blown across a field. For miles, nothing was left standing. But then someone spotted a lone tree just 1.1 km from where the bomb blasted.
Not only did its survival seem miraculous, the tree continued budding normally after that without any deformities to the buds or leaves.
What is this amazingly resilient tree? It’s gingko biloba.
The gingko tree survived the nuclear attack because it’s brimming with antioxidants. Just what our endothelium need to fight off inflammation and oxidative stress.
Gingko is packed with flavonoids and terpenoids. Both are types of antioxidants that also carry some anti-inflammatory properties.Flavonoids are shown to protect the heart muscle, blood vessels, retina, and nerve cells (such as those in the brain) from oxidative stress damage.
Terpenoids are shown to reduce the platelet stickiness and help dilate blood vessels. The combination helps improve blood flow. Because of this, gingko’s widely used in Europe for treating dementia.
In fact, a landmark study showed gingko biloba is as effective in treating patients with mild to moderate dementia as the popular Alzheimer’s drug donepezil (brand name Aricept). Plus gingko comes with the extra bonus of not causing any side effects.
And because the flavonoids are shown to protect nerve cells, the overall effect of higher blood flow and healthier nerve cells help:
• Regulate mood swings
• Increase ability to learn and think clearly
• Enhance memory
• Boost nitric oxide production
The last point of boosting nitric oxide (NO) is especially important. Because NO is vital for maintaining endothelial health and helping blood surge throughout your body, down to the tiniest capillaries.
Nitric oxide (NO) performs essential roles in:
• Controlling blood pressure by regulating muscle tone in blood vessels
• Keeping blood flowing smoothly by preventing blood clots
• Improving overall circulation – down to your fingers and toes
• Aiding in sleeping, pain control, learning, and memory
• Regulating cholesterol levels
• Calming inflammation
• Decreasing angina (chest pains)
• Helping blood vessels repair, which may help lessen atherosclerosis risk
• Promoting regular heart beats
In patients with coronary artery disease, gingko increased NO levels by nearly 12.5%. This may seem like a low number, but remember, NO is needed for nearly every major heart functions. So a 12.5% increase in NO significantly improved the patient’s overall cardiovascular health.
Because as we age, endothelial cells weaken. Weak cells equal higher risk of blood vessel damage, which can lead to cardiovascular disease. But gingko can help you break this pattern.
A study of 60 healthy elderly showed gingko improved endothelial function by 56% in just two weeks, which greatly raised cell-nourishing blood flow throughout the body.
Revving up energy production and keeping the blood flowing generously is a great start. But to keep your brain and heart working dependably for life, we also added…
Bacopa monnieri is an herb used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. And modern science shows most of us can benefit from bacopa – from young students to retired grandparents.
That’s because bacopa helps improve your ability to focus and remember new things calmly, while reducing anxiety and stress.
In one study, 46 healthy people took bacopa daily for several weeks. Afterwards, testing showed every person increased their ability to learn more quickly, process visual information faster, felt less nervousness or anxiety, and forgot less.
Unlike sedatives which calm you by making you sleepy, bacopa keeps you relaxed while increasing your focus and ability to retain information longer.
Bacopa provides such a complementary mix of benefits, it’s no surprise the famous Dr. Oz recommends bacopa for brain health.
Earlier, we shared the 3 culprits of heart disease and dementia: inflammation, oxidative stress, and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Beetroot successfully combats all three.
Beets are rich in antioxidants. Its dark color comes from a majorly potent antioxidant called betanene. Betanene fights off free radicals better than the polyphenol antioxidant found in leafy greens, so beets pack a serious blow against oxidative stress and inflammation.
It’s well-known beets also increase your blood flow by increasing nitric oxide (NO) production. Which is why beet juice and beet supplements are used worldwide for controlling blood pressure.
The more NO you have, the easier your blood flows. This includes the difficult-to-reach brain cells, which tend to lose blood flow as we age. Beetroot helps combat this.
A study involving people ages 68-81 years old showed beets specifically increase blood flow to the frontal lobe. This is especially important because the frontal lobe controls behavior, decision-making, emotions, movements, and problem-solving.
With endothelium so fragile and so crucial to heart health, our formula protects it further with
Hawthorn berry is a well-known remedy promoting heart heath. Hawthorn contains several types of antioxidants, some with anti-inflammatory properties. Large-scale trials involving hundreds of patients show hawthorn:
• Improves blood supply specifically to the heart
• Dilate blood vessels to improve flow throughout the body
• Reduces oxygen consumption by the heart
• Prevents cholesterol deposits from building on the endothelium (artery walls)
• Enhances circulation to the hands and feet
• Lowers fatigue, improves shortness of breath
It gets even better. When combined with beetroot, hawthorn berry shoots up NO production so much, it’s believed to change the tides for heart disease in high-risk patients.
Researchers really put this combination to the test by taking 30 high-risk people averaging 56 years old. Each person matched 3 or more of the following characteristics: smoker, obese, high blood pressure, sedentary, and a family history of diabetes and heart disease. After taking the nutrient combo for 30 days, all of them showed significant increases in plasma NO levels, and a 72% of them showed a statistically significant drop in blood triglyceride levels compared to their starting levels.
And remember, NO increases blood flow throughout your body. So what’s great for the heart is also great for the brain and any other part of the body needing improved circulation.
Restoring NO levels can help improve memory, recall information easily, lesson confusion, plus help brain cells send and receive information faster.
This leads us to one of the best brain circulation boosters known…
Vinpocetine (VIN) is an extract that comes from a plant related to periwinkle. Because of its many brain and heart benefits, VIN’s approved by the European and British Pharmacopeias. The nutrient’s regularly used to:
VIN gets cells so energized and blood moving so well, it even increases blood flow in the toughest cases – stroke patients.
Stroke patients usually suffer from chronically blocked blood flow to the brain. Which severely inhibits healing and spikes the risk of further damage. In a study of 30,000 patients, VIN improved cerebral blood flow up to 33% on the stroke side of their brain and up to 37% on the opposite side.
VIN isn’t just for damaged minds, it benefits healthy minds too. As was shown in a double-blind, crossover trial on healthy women. Just 40 mg of VIN showed a 30% faster reaction time as compared to women taking a placebo.
For a well-studied nutrient that shows so much positive support, you won’t see it in many brain or heart supplements. Maybe it’s because VIN isn’t as trendy and glamorous as other nutrients.
Whatever the reason, we like to go with nutrients proven to work well and work safely. That’s why your Heart + Brain Power includes vinpocetine.
Let’s switch gears slightly at this point. So far, we focused on helping what’s inside your cells. Our comprehensive formula also addresses what’s outside your cells.
That’s why we added…
Neurons are surrounded by a membrane that acts like a skin, protecting and holding in all of the machinery inside such as the mitochondria. One of the most important components making up cell membranes is a fat called phospholipids (pronounced: fos-foe-lipids).
Phospholipids act like the membrane’s scaffolding, or structure. Phospholipids coordinate activities of receptors, proteins, and enzymes. These activities help you think, remember, feel, and move.
The most plentiful phospholipid is called PS (phosphatidylserine). Aging, oxidative stress, and inflammation destroy this fat. In turn, this starts breaking down your neuron and everything in it.
That’s when it takes effort to remember what you did yesterday…you feel anxious or stressed over “little things”…you lose focus easily…and other signs of an aging mind.
Supplementing with PS can restore cell membrane structure and reverse some of the damage.
In a famous study conducted with Stanford and Vanderbilt universities, 149 adults with age-associated mental decline were either given a placebo or 300 mg of PS daily. After 12 weeks, scientists found PS restored 14 years mental decline. And PS improved their ability to learn and remember written information by nearly 12 years. No drug can do that.
Heart + Brain Power includes 150 mg of PS to help retain sturdy cell membranes and help your mind work like it did in your younger years.
As you may know, neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that help your brain cells talk back and forth steadily. These chemical messengers sit outside on the cell membrane. So when cell membranes break down with age, neurotransmitters take a huge hit.
The most important neurotransmitter is acetylcholine. It’s responsible for memory and learning. As acetylcholine levels drop, brain signaling slows down so much, it feels like your brain’s struggling to transmit signals in a pool of molasses.
We added 150 mg of Alpha GPC, a natural compound that ramps up your acetylcholine production. Optimal acetylcholine levels help:
• Reduce stress and anxiety
• Improve focus and alertness
• Enhance memory
• Regulate sleep
• Balance coordination/improve athletic ability
Now that you see how Heart + Brain Power increases cell energy, optimizes blood flow, protects and restores cells, it’s time to look at…
If you ever look inside the workings of a clock, you’ll see it’s full of independent parts. Yet each part is completely dependent on the other parts to do its job. If a spring or wheel goes off kilter, the entire clock breaks down. Maybe it won’t keep time accurately. Or the clock stops altogether.
Our bodies are very similar.
That’s why your Heart + Brain Power contains our proprietary CoreFour™ to[B7] build up your health foundation.
CoreFour™ does this by supporting every major body system to function at full strength and efficiency. This includes your circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, and immune systems.
As with the other ingredients in your formula, CoreFour™ does not force your body to do anything. Instead, it provides your body the right tools to function optimally. Your intelligent body knows how to use these tools in the most advantageous way for you.
With your systems running smoothly, your cells are better able to fully accept and utilize your formula’s many powerhouse ingredients.
What’s more, CoreFour™ is precisely formulated to further enhance how each Heart + Brain Power nutrient benefits you.
As a result, you’ll feel noticeable results, faster.
Medical scientists proved long ago that your heart health is directly connected to your brain health.
Yet most formulas still ignore this connection.
This forces you to take one formula for a clear mind, a second to reduce brain plaques, a third for a stronger heart, and a fourth for healthier blood vessels. That’s a lot of pills – and money.

There were dramatic improvements that took place so automatically and naturally, I didn’t even notice them! I feel better physically and have an overall better sense of well being.Tom N.
Started taking the E + I a month ago. I feel like I have more energy and can get through the day without feeling tired like I used to. Also, I love how it toughens my body. My mom and brother are staying with me and both came down with serious colds. I was sure I would get it also but didn’t effect me one bit. I love this product! Thanks LG!!Charles L.
As a small business owner and a runner it is important that I stay healthy and energized. After taking the Live Gracefully products I feel more focused, more energized, and have had a huge reduction of pain in my joints from running. These products [Total Core Health] are sort of a “secret weapon” for staying focused and on top of my game and I feel good knowing how healthy they are for my immune system and overall wellness. Being 24 years old I considered myself to be “healthy enough” and “energized enough” but now that I have these supplements I’ve seen that it is possible to increase both of those areas and feel great doing it. So grateful for Live Gracefully!Ali A.
Love Live Gracefully.I really didn’t believe I had any digestive ‘hang-up’s’ until I started the Prebiotic + Probiotic Restore – it Restored the normal in me. I do not see the signs of facial redness nor the tiny red lines on my cheeks and nose anymore. I’m not a big eater, but would still feel bloated after a meal. Not any longer. Interesting how one might feel quite normal until normal has been restored!Cindy P.
Within the first day of taking Prebiotic + Probiotic Restore, my digestion seemed to “wake up.” I don’t have anymore bloat, I feel comfortable after meals, and my chronic constipation is gone. I’ve tried Chinese herbs, essential oils, and expensive probiotic formulas for years. Nothing’s worked as well and as consistently as this. I also got 2 unexpected bonuses: I don’t retain water during my periods anymore. And my allergies have calmed down a lot too. I’m definitely going to keep taking your formula.Clara D.
I started taking your supplements 3 weeks ago. 1. Heart and Brain – I do not have as many senior moments anymore. Memory is much better. 2. Anti-inflammatory – I was being treated for an infection with antibiotic and ibuprofen. Found the ibuprofen was not helping the swelling in my knee so I returned to the anti-inflammatory from Living Gracefully and have found it to be much better. 3. Pre-probiotics. Love them. With crohns disease I have found taking pills has helped my stomach quite a bit.Linda G.
Last fall while cleaning the gutters and other fall chores I over-extended the ligaments in both of my knees. The doctor said no problem Ibuprofen and 7 to 12 weeks it will be all better. It wasn’t. 16 weeks later I started LG’s anti-inflamitory + antioxident and by the 2nd week my knees began to show significant improvement. Thanks LG!John M.
I’ve been taking [Total Core Health] for a month now and the results have been far beyond my expectations: My energy levels are very high. My workouts have increased and without soreness. I feel more mentally alert. I don’t have a need for naps. I get up early, go to bed late and sleep the best I’ve slept in years. Digestive issues are a thing of the past. I’m 72, and it has taken this long to find a natural product that works as advertised.David M.
[Energy + Immune Strength] While I really like the energy I am feeling, I haven’t been sick this season either so it’s helping boost my immune system as well. I am 74 years old and my energy levels haven’t felt this good in many, many years!Mary F.
I have been taking Energy + Immune and the Anti-inflammatory for 3 wks now. I couldn’t believe it after the first couple of days. Before I starting taking them, when getting out of bed and even out of a chair I had a hard taking those first steps, I had to stand in one spot for a few minutes before taking that first step. After a couple of days I could start walking right away. Was I surprised!! I also have more energy than I have had in years.Joyce K.
