Another study Multivitamins May Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease

Long-term regular consumption of a multivitamin may reduce the risk of dying from heart disease by 16 per cent, according to a new study. Intakes of vitamin E over 215 milligrams per day over the course of ten years were also associated with a 28 per cent reduction in the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, according to findings.

The Institute for Progressive Medicine’s Synergy Multivitamin is one of the most comprehensive, pharmaceutical grade multivitamins available. Synergy is packed with therapeutic doses of many essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in an easy 3 per day dose. Our doctors recommend taking a high quality calcium-magnesium supplement such as Reacted Cal-Mag and a high potency omega-3 fish oil supplement such as Mega Omega 4:3 to cover a basic supplement regimen.

Omega-3’s and Obesity

Increased blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are linked to a lower incidence of obesity, suggesting a role for fish oils in weight management. New findings indicate that overweight and obese people have blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids almost 1 per cent lower than people with a healthy weight.

Our findings suggest that omega-3 Polyunsaturate fatty acids (PUFA) may play an important role in weight status and abdominal adiposity (fat accumulation), wrote the researchers.

IPM’s Mega Omega 4:3 is a high potency omega-3 oil. Featuring a balanced ratio of EPA to DHA, Mega Omega 4:3 is a high potency, pharmaceutical grade oil that is also third party tested for purity and potency.

Taurine and Homocysteine Reduction

Taurine supplementation demonstrated a remarkable ability to significantly decrease homocysteine levels after only four weeks of use. Homocysteine is an amino acid product of methionine metabolism (another amino acid), and is associated with cardiovascular disease and dementia.

IPM’s Taurine offers a 500mg/capsule dose, and can be taken along with Homocystenine factors as effective nutritional approach to healthy homocysteine levels.
