Hawthorne- Has been shown to stimulate circulation and promote the relaxation of blood vessels. Studies have shown that hawthorne can regulate both high and low blood pressure. The bioflavonoids in hawthorne have a relaxing effect on blood vessels. (1) The PCOs (proanthocyanidins) in hawthorne may be helpful for counteracting coronary artery spasms. (2)
Vitamin B6- A key factor to help metabolize homocysteine. Works best in conjunction with Vitamin B12.
Folic Acid- A study that combined Vitamin B12, B6, and Folic Acid showed that this combination can lower rates of cardiovascular events such as angioplasty and heart attacks. (7, 8)
Vitamin B12- Helps prevent long term build up of homocysteine, which is a toxic substance that is formed when the body metabolizes the amino acid methionine. (3, 4, 5) Vitamin B12 is required to convert this substance into a non toxic compound, so deficiencies can lead to methionine build up. Elevations in homocysteine can increase your risk of developing atherosclerosis. (6)
Vitamin C- May reduce atherosclerotic plaque while also increasing HDL cholesterol levels (the good cholesterol). (9) May also be helpful for preventing the conversion of LDL cholesterol to a more harmful form. (10,11) Helps enhance the usefulness of Vitamin E.
Vitamin E- May support cardiovascular and circulatory health. May increase HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) while lowering LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). (12)
Vitamin B2- Useful for promoting growth and development, reproduction, and well-being. Instrumental in the metabolism of fatty and amino acids. Also plays a key role in energy production.
Tri-methylglycine- Helps Folic acid, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin B6 break down amino acids to regulate homocysteine levels.
