Heart Centered targets the microbiome to produce more nitric oxide, CoQ10 and butyrate. Many people don’t realize that these important metabolites are produced by gut bacteria.
Nitric oxide production is vital for a healthy cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide is a mediator of vasodilation which can dilate blood vessels raising blood supply and lowering blood pressure. Bacillus subtilis, one of the key strains in our formula, produces nitric oxide.
CoQ10 is a fat soluble, vitamin-like product that helps convert food into energy. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in many studies to improve cardiovascular health. We isolated a unique Lactobacillus plantarum which produces this important metabolite.
Our Heart Centered formula also produces the short chain fatty acid (SCFA) butyrate. Butyrate is important to the integrity of the gut lining and helps maintain overall gut health. Imbalances in the gut microbiome are associated with metabolic disorders and, a growing amount of evidence suggests, heart disease. When the gut lining is compromised, bacterial byproducts or metabolites can enter the body and induce inflammation and directly affect the heart.
Our six-strain formula includes proprietary strains of bacteria that we isolated ourselves.
