Genoma Cardia is a formula based around the combination of the herb Hawthorn berry and the amino acid l-Taurine and is designed to promote healthy cardiovascular function.
Hawthorn berries have been used since the Middle Ages to help maintain cardiovascular functions while also helping to promote healthy blood pressure levels. It has been extensively studied both in the US and in Europe. One study of 78 subjects found significant improvement in exercise tolerance and lower blood pressure and heart rate during exercise. Another study, following 32 subjects who used a Hawthorn supplement for 8 weeks, found improved exercise tolerance as well as a reduction in the incidence and severity of shortness of breath. Fatigue decreased by approximately 50% in these subjects as well.
Taurine is a non-essential amino acid. It has a myriad of positive healthful effects, including the enhancement of detoxification and removal of xenobiotic (man-made) chemicals from the body. Low levels of taurine have been associated with retinal degeneration, growth retardation, and cardiomyopathy (heart enlargement).
Genoma Cardia also features the following synergistic herbs:
Arjuna bark: This is a famous traditional herb used for centuries in the Himalayas. Arjuna promotes effective cardiac functioning and healthy blood pressure. It also helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Co Enzyme Q10: This is a vitamin-like compound produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age and to be low in patients with some chronic diseases.
Salvia Root: This traditional herb contains several unique phytochemicals with cardio-protective and antioxidant properties.
